but see, blacks aren't really people

dilbert morons of tomorrow
Homer, Louisiana police chief Russell Mills, after one of his officers shot and killed a 73-year-old mute black man:

"If I see three or four young black men walking down the street, I have to stop them and check their names," said Mills, who is white. "I want them to be afraid every time they see the police that they might get arrested.

"We're not out there trying to abuse and harass people -- we're trying to protect the law-abiding citizens locked behind their doors in fear."


Oh, but abusing and harassing black people—that's just good police work.  I guess we should at least thank Mills for the tacit admission that cops engage in racial profiling.

Reminds me of the time when you posted the comparison of imprisoned blacks in the US to South Africa under apartheid...
