CNN always has someone on its panel who represents the “police” version of what is transpiring in our nation. This individual invariably notes that crime is rampant in black and Hispanic areas so it is only natural that most halted by police are black or Hispanic. They argue it is not the fault of police for halting blacks, it is a normal outcome from the fact that if police have to enter black crime areas, it means they will have to confront more blacks and Hispanics during the course of a day.
This rationale comes across as logical, and provides reasons for cops to halt those with dark skins or those who speak Spanish. HOWEVER, where exactly are the centers of crime in America?
1. MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of people lost their homes, their life savings due to criminal behavior of Wall Street bankers and salesmen.
2. Untold thousands of people lost thousands and thousands of dollars because lying college salesmen got them to enroll in fly-by-night “colleges”which were really sham outfits ripping off people who did not know much about colleges. Talk about places with high crime rates!
3. Check out those friendly stores that offer to cash checks for those without savings accounts, or loan someone in need of a few hundred dollars who now pays back a few thousand to loan sharks. Has ANY COP entered those centers of nonstop crime??
4. Each year a few thousand people are subject to the Nigerian promise of millions for a few thousand from you. Has any cop investigated these crimes?
A visit to Wall street will enable any cop in this land to encounter criminals who do not steal a few hundred dollars, but millions and millions and no COP ever halts these crimes!
