Discrimination In Law Enforcement

117 Words1 Page
Our law enforcement sometimes judges people on their race or ethnicity. The police decide who they consider suspicious, that discretion is routinely exercised through race. People believe some shouldn’t be allowed in places because of it. The color of our skin daren’t portray the lives that we live on a daily basis, that is what’s wrong with today’s society. Police disproportionately target minorities as criminal suspects, skewing at the outset the racial composition. There is no reason to believe that racism is more prevalent among police officers than among other professionals. They pull people over that seem suspicious and hope that something in their car that’s suspicious enough that will give them the right to search it.
