Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
Even in communities where departments have relatively peaceful relations with such neighborhoods, there is a problem where crimes against certain demographics (colloquially referred to as "taxpayers", usually but not always whites) receive more attention and concern from the police than the ethnically marginalized poor. Generally, "taxpayers" have the know-how, connections, and resources to make the police pay for perceived sloppy or indifferent service more than the ethnically marginalized poor do; they have a better understanding of their rights, tighter finances, and a more developed comprehension of how to use the media to their advantage. In a world where police departments have limited resources and personnel, that means the interests of such persons (say a disappeared 19-year old white female from an upper middle class family) will be consistently rated above say, the disappearance of a 15-Latino male from a poor neighborhood.
And that's the good relations.

If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
