    No one is saying that. No one but you.

    BJS: Local Police

    So I don't have specifics, but we know that 75% are white, and the piece says that 10% are hispanic. Leaving 15% for blacks then? We're still talking about a much smaller pool to draw from. And I doubt a lot of people are looking to go to St. Louis...

    Fun Fact though... for all the crap we're giving LAPD, did you know the majority of them aren't White? Latinos are currently the largest ethnic group on the police force..
    Not surprising. Just saying it's very odd to have such disparaging percentages in the police force of a department where the population is soooo different. It usually reflects the community much closer.

    Guess your are just going to deny that the Missouri Attorney General said what he said. Oh wells. Enjoy life in fantasy land.

    The Missouri attorney general's office issues annual reports that show the Ferguson police force is almost twice as likely to conduct searches of African Americans during traffic stops. But searches of whites are more likely to result in the discovery of drugs and other contraband. Statewide numbers follow a similar trend.

    Quick quiz on what you just read...

    Of the two races being described here by the Missouri attorney general... which race is most likely to be ****ing up more?
    For what it's worth though, and I'm curious is the Missouri statistics show this as well, nationally White people are *pulled over* just as much as black people are. However, in an effort to be open and frank, it does seem there are more searches on blacks though...

    No... No I'm not. I'm saying the police department doesn't reflect the population it is policing much at all. And now it's causing a shooting situation to turn into a racial tensions because of it.

    Supply and demand. Sometimes you just don't have that option you know?

    True but 2/3rds of the population is black and 94% of the police are white? That's not off by a little.

    A shooting that you're claiming was because of racism.
