Because freedom can't protect itself
I would like to know what will happen if you are pulled over for a trafic violation?
Alert! Maybe more blacks are violating the law. (I know the ACLU would never entertain a fact like that.....)
Ollie, the study indicates minorities are more likely to have their vehicles searched once they are pulled over. Are you saying that a person's race should be a factor in a decision to search a car? If so, more men violate the law than women. Should a person's gender be a factor in a decision to search a car?
