Karmic Profiling

from Wirecutter

Federal Judge Susan Dlott wrote the book on racial profiling in 2002.

Last week, she ripped it into one million tiny pieces when three black people broke into her $8 million Cincinnati home and started beating her and her 79-year old husband.

“There’s three black men with guns at our house,” Dlott told a 911 operator after she escaped the home invasion and ran to her neighbor’s house one mile away.

And just in case the operator did not hear her the first time, Dlott said it again: “My husband and the dogs are still there. There are three black men with guns and masks at the house.”

That’s Racial Profiling 101: Identifying the criminals by race, as if that had something to do with it.

Profiling.  Another of those politically correct terms like social justice.

I believe there’s a reasonableness factor.  If you (as an agent of law enforcement) are stopping folks going about their daily business because of their perceived ethnicity only – that’s profiling!

If you’re doing it because their daily business is criminal act – like burglary, armed robbery, drug dealing or smuggling, how they appear racially really doesn’t enter into it.

Unless you need to break radio traffic to broadcast a physical description of the suspect in flight.

Guys walking furtively in groups in a remote part of the desert within a few miles of the Mexican border who don’t appear to be hiking, legally hunting or just camping, and are Latino in appearance.  probably aren’t being stopped and questioned just because they appear Latino.

(Question – And why aren’t we actively patrolling the Canadian border, looking for Canucks who appear American and are taking pricier American jobs?  Inquiring minds want to know!) 

A controversial and popular Sheriff going to Hispanic communities and essentially rounding up folks wholesale, well that’s profiling and lazy policing!

Duh.

Another area where political correctness will kill us – or probably kill law enforcement trying to do their jobs.

I used to know a State law enforcement guy who worked in an inter-agency gang taskforce.  He knew his rational thinking had been skewed when every Latino he saw screamed armed robber to him, and every Black was a burglar.

So he walked away from that job.

  1. I also walked away from law enforcement when my attitude toward most everyone soured, and I suspected every person I encountered. Wearing a badge, 98% of those you meet are either bad guys, or people down on their luck, or those needing help. It colors one’s perception, and I didn’t like how it made me feel.
