Description

"Despite a crime wave, Cincinnati's cops pull back, underscoring the stakes in the conflict over racial profiling," reports Time Magazine. The story points to figures that show similar number of arrests before and after the "violent confrontation in April [2001] between mostly black protesters and mostly white police." The analysis looks at a dilemma: "Are we to have a low-crime society, in which cops are violent cowboys, or a high-crime culture, in which cops can't stop a mob without written Justice Department approval?" A major finding is that frequency of racial profiling is difficult to be determined, since most cities do not collect traffic-stop data, and other are reluctant to make it public.
