A study by the Courier-Journal reveals that Louisville police officers pulled over blacks twice as much as whites. The newspaper analyzed data from more than 1,600 traffic stops that occured on 30 days chosen at random. The newspaper makes no claims that the Louisville police department engages in racial profiling, however, three experts interviewed by the Courier-Journal say the study reveals evidence that it does. City officials declined to comment on the Courier-Journal's study, calling it inaccurate.
