There will be some unhappy officers it is believed. I am friends with two of the students that worked in the Research office and one of the FT employees who was formerly my TA. I visted when walking through the building and always remember him making those tables at the end of the report. They didn't let me watch any of the video's though. Oooohhh wellNick said:Here's the link to the Northeastern University study of citations issued and their relations to race, age, gender etc.
There's some interesting figures on there... and confusing ones too. Good luck to those departments and officers that are going to be effected by their high racial disparities. There's gonna be some scrutiny!
No doubt racial profiling does happen, and yes, it is wrong, but I'm willing to bet that most of these disparities are due to problems with the study, not because of intentional racial profiling.
Very good MPD61mpd61 said:As the Chief Of Avon pointed out, there are only 4,000 residents in Avon but two major highways pass through it and doubtless the diversity of those many more thousands passing through daily are bound to skew the factors considerably.
Harrison Blvd exit from route 24 in Avon alone feeds most commuters onto 24/128 from Brockton and surrounding towns and back again each day. Yeah this study is sooooo scientific!
Your point is taken LOL. Milton PD does need to stop waiting at the Milton Mattapan line for traffic violators and etc.. it just does not look good.HousingCop said:BHCCPD,
Alot of people use Milton as a cut through but 58% tickets to 15% population is going to be hard to justify to anybody. Remember, we live in Massachusetts, not Mississippi.
