San Antonio Police Department paid $54,000 to analyze SAPD's racial profiling data. SAPD reported that the numbers is one of the best in the country. But WOAI found that SAPD listed motorists the wrong race. Out of 154,000 tickets, 26 percent of them were listed under the wrong race.It was also revealed that the same motorist showed up dozens of times in the records when they should have only be counted once.
