    Don't need to accuse the Met of anything.

    Argued this is because of racial bias. They speculated.


    The police are institutionally racist.

    Single Parent? Cultural Problem. Nobody rolled the dice and made her a single parent, She got pregnant and had a kid with a guy who wasn't interested in her and now she is in a bad spot. Its called birth control.

    Low income, Should have stayed in school, payed attention in school and worked hard to go to college and get a better job.

    The opportunity is there, and many suceed. They aren't the "lucky" ones, they are the ambitious ones who made it despite a bad social setting.

    You can't say, "You can't blame someone living in the low-income ghetto for getting involved in gangs or dropping out." But in reality, they are the ones who made that decision.

    Its time we start holding people accountable for their actions, and as parents raising then to make the right decisions instead of blaming society and WHITEY.
    Single out two phrases and make a paragraph concerning that ... awesome.
    Ignore the general point of my post. Even better.

    I'm well aware that individual responsibility comes into play here

    Because they claim to acknowledge the problem does not mean these specific incidents where you were stopped are automatically racism.

    More speculation and false accusations of racism.

    Individual responsibility plays a huge role, but do does opportunity and the culture one is born into. It is useless to pick out any single factor from the mix and say "that is the reason"

    Comes into play?

    Individual responsibility and lack of accountability is the REASON for all your statistics.

    That is MY speculation. You can claim others are racist all you want, I'll claim the individuals involved are a part of a breakdown into a criminal culture.

    Minorities have a lack of respect for Police that they aquire through cultural means.

    No.
    It's just not good enough for you the evidence
    Clearly it happened because Black/Asians asked to get stop and searched 70% more. That means nothing

    The police are still instititionally racist, not much has changed except it's just more undercover.

    Police 'still institutionally racist' - Telegraph

    But to be very fair to the police, it has changed from the time of Stephen Lawrence. I mean, now they actually investigate when someone dies rather than be 100% incompetent. Always a thumbs up and who says I don't give kudos

    Poor people in general have a higher rate of being stopped by police on what some call "routine traffic stops".

    Want to know why?

    Its poor people who have a harder time maintaining registration tags (expiration), mandatory inspections, insurance, and maintaining the required equipment for the vehicle once said equipment breaks down (lights, etc).

    I would argue a lack of respect for any authority, not just police.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    Yeah because minorities woke up one day and thought 'wow, let's just hate police officers from now for no reason whatsoever'
