The Justice Department just issued a report on the city of Ferguson, Missouri and its conclusion reveals some shocking news. Believe it or not but there is some, just some, evidence of discrimination in this fair city. I was amazed to learn that if your skin is black in this Missouri city, the likelihood of being stopped by police is rather high. If you drive a car, then there is a high chance it will be halted by police who simply want to check it out for drugs. If your skin is black, there is a greater probability that you will wind up in jai. In other words:
1. Blacks get more tickets.
2. Blacks are fined more often than whites.
3. Blacks are more often the ones who can not pay their fines.
4. This means that blacks wind up in jail more often for unpaid tickets.
I thought in our Constitution the Founding Fathers made clear they did not want paupers sent to jail. But, that was then, and now is now.
