Re: “VT Supreme Court Overturns Conviction After Racial-Profiling Claim

I am a big proponent to getting criminal's off the street period.

Racial profiling is real. Like police targeting certain groups. Its like if your wife looks for dirt on you e.g. through your phone, under your bed, in your sock drawer she will find something to argue about.

Let's look at an article "White people are more likely to deal drugs, but black people are more likely to get arrested for it". There are enough stats to support the hypothesis to make it a fact nation wide.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2014/09/30/white-people-are-more-likely-to-deal-drugs-but-black-people-are-more-likely-to-get-arrested-for-it/

This isn't news to me. 11 grams is not even a story. You know what is news - identifying the gatekeeper(s) who push these drugs into the system. You know why we can't find them because they are linked to high officials that are protected. They have the complication for the protection.

Capitalism reigns and a few people are laughing at the top, sadly at the cost of impressionable and disenfranchised minds (all colors incl). Its easier for these men to resort to crime than a library or social program to play to their strengths.
