Should police be allowed to use racial profiling?

  • It saves money (taxes I pay) and resources

    If the police are looking for a criminal in a crime where they know that 99% of the perpetrators of this crime are white males then they should not be wasting time looking into non whites.
    Anything the police can do to cut down on the time it takes to find guilty people is good.

  • We can't control it

    We can't make police not racist, we can't change people's opinions. We cannot control this. Why fight a battle we cannot win?

    We profile males, females, even criminals! So it only makes sense?! I don't really see how its ridiculous, because its all for the best, to find the crime committers

  • Everyone get's profiled

    As a male I get profiled when buying car insurance as I can considered a hi risk group even though I have never crashed. It is unfair, and means I have to pay more, but it is effective.

    Got at least the time being it makes sense to apply this to crime as well.

  • Use every tool available

    Racial profiling should not be used as a substitute for good police work, and it should not be used in order to get to an arrest when there is no other evidence. That said, demographic information is a useful tool in all sorts of research, and it can be useful in criminal investigations as well. Accurate profiling without a racist agenda is kind of an idealistic goal, but it seems a worthwhile one.

  • It will help

    It doesnt matter if its actual or not they are going to use it to a certain extent weather you like it or not. Its a help for tool specially if they aren't white because the take out a lot of suspects that didnt do anything or have to deal with.

  • Higher chance of success in finding criminals.

    The people who are racially profiled today are the people who were neglected in the past and have been discriminated. This is the reason why these people go against the law because they feel the law had not been protecting them. In cases such as Muslims, they are racially profiled because of the few who tarnished the reputation of all of them.

  • Goal is to catch criminals

    Experience has shown that there's some sorta correlation between culture/race/types of crimes. That said i do understand it would be super annoying if you get pulled over 4 times per week by cops when you are a successful black business man in a nice car. Perhaps they should use some "excluding" principles so this doesn't happen.

  • I like pizza

    It is good. You can put anything on it. You can call it many different names. You can have many different sauces. Meat, fruit, veggies, you can have any toppings that you want. Chicken is good too. Food grandmas are nice so are dogs but you are not you idiot

  • Of course racial Profiling should be used

    13% of the US population is Black. Between 1980-2008 Blacks were responsible for 52% of all homicides. If Blacks were the same likely to murder as whites, only 13% of homicides should have been perpetrated by blacks. However they are way more likely than whites to murder. We would have to be stupid not to use racial profiling.

  • No way Jose.

    An ACLU lawsuit uncovered police data indicating that while 73 percent of suspects pulled over on I-95 between 1995 and 1997 were black, black suspects were no more likely to actually have drugs or illegal weapons in their cars than white suspects.According to the Public Health Service, approximately 70% of drug users are white, 15% are black, and 8% are Latino. But the Department of Justice reports that among those imprisoned on drug charges, 26% are white, 45% are black, and 21% are Latino.

  • Never

    People should be presumed innocent until proven guilty. This should be true of race as well. A person's skin color should never dictate an officer's suspicions, unless warranted by extentuating cirumstances. officers pulling over minorities is an abuse of their civil liberties, is insulting, and should be punishable by termination of employment. An officer's job is to protect and serve, not just protect and serve white people. To do otehrwise is to assume guilt until proven innocent.

  • No, police should not be allowed to use racial profiling

    The very idea that a person can be suspect or not suspect simply because of the color of their skin, embodies the notion of guilty till proven innocent that is sweeping America anymore. It should not be tolerated under any circumstance whatsoever. Whether someone is innocent or guilty of a crime should be totally dependent on the person, NOT their race. Race should never enter into the equation of whether someone did something or not. So no, I don't think police should be allowed to use racial profiling at all, it is unamerican, and not what this country was supposed to be founded upon.

  • Racial Profiling Unfair, Biased, Outdated

    Americans live in the 21st Century and not in the antebellum South. Racial profiling needs to stop immediately because its unfair, unequal, biased and antiquated. The Civil Rights movement in the 1950s and 1960s should have taught Americans a harsh lesson of what racial tensions do to a country that is out of balance. Racial profiles are a thing of the past.

  • It's not even accurate

    People of every race commit crime. When stating that any racial group is the major offender for any given crime, that is often due to circumstance. For example, a minority that is concentrated in an economically challenged area will commit crimes due to poverty and desperation. However, not all members of that minority group live in conditions that support crime. To assume that race is correlated to living conditions or psychology is inaccurate and violates the perception of all people as equal.

  • It shouldn't be used

    We are all people, the only thing that makes us different is our skin color and our religion! People can't help if they are black or Latino. Any one can kill a person! So stop judging people! Its childish! People need to stop being so ruthless with weapons, it needs to stop! Everyone needs to take a long hard look in the mirror because what this world is becoming today makes me sick!!

  • No racial profiling

    Why should someone be racially profiled for their skin color, religion, and or ethnicity. Is that fair that some people are racially profiled and others are not? No! Everyone should be treated equal until they are proven guilty of doing something they shouldn't or they are caught doing something. Would you like to be arrested and or killed for being black or Muslim or believing in your religion? No! So don't judge people by their race, ethnicity, and religion.
