The performance of a police officer is always under a microscope especially when it comes to dealing with people from another race. There is also the idea that police officers use racial profiling to conduct and solve many of the crimes that are happening in their neighborhood.

There are many reasons as to why police officers can sometimes be overly combative. It is thought that some personality traits make some officers more predisposed to the use of excessive force than others. In one study, police psychologists were surveyed on officers who had used excessive force.
David Von Drehle, highly educated in the roots of a riot, explained how the “rioting broke out after Gray’s funeral on April27—a night of arson, looting and brick throwing that led the mayor to declare a 10 p.m. citywide curfew as Maryland Governor Larry Hogan called out the National Guard” (Drehle 36).

Albert W. Florence, the petitioner in this case, was initially arrested in 1998 and charged with use of a deadly weapon and obstruction of justice (Florence v.

In the article, the author gives the data of the percent of stops that yielded the weapon. The percent of Black and Hispanics have weapon is less than that of the white. It shows that the Black and Hispanics have different color does not mean they are more likely to commit a crime. The police in New York have a degrading way that affect the Black and Hispanics because it seems they only base on their skin color and race to treat the people.
