This place is like a haven for people who have a predisposition to take anything and everything and skew it to fit their naive preconceived world views.
A conspiracy theory attributes the ultimate cause of an event or chain of events (usually political, social or historical events), or the concealment of such causes from public knowledge, to a secret and often deceptive plot by a group of powerful or influential people or organizations. Many conspiracy theories state that major events in history have been dominated by conspirators who manipulate political happenings from behind the scenes.

That's because they are making things that shouldn't be illegal illegal.
Stop defending racism and racial profiling.

Okay, first of all - No, I'm not racist. If I meet you, I will treat you in a friendly and polite manor, and won't judge you until I have a basis of your real personality. It wouldn't cross my mind as any difference should the person I meet be black or white. If they're nice, they're nice. If they're not they're not. Colour doesn't matter.
From my life experience though, having lived in various "poor estates" some made up of mostly Scottish, some mostly white British, and the one I'm living in now, is made up of mostly black British people.
I have never been treated as badly as I have, seen the things I've seen, or heard of the things I've heard of anywhere else before.
The black people around here, are mostly (haven't met them all) criminals. I would tell you the same thing if thee were white people, but they're not. They're black, and they are thieves, gang members, and muggers.
They intimidate you, chase you, call you names and yes a lot of the time, racist names, and really make your life hard. I've done nothing to provoke these people.
As I said, colour makes no difference me, I judge on personality, and the people in this area here, are by far the worst I have lived with.
Therefore from my personal experience, it is not in any way at all shocking that more black people would be arrested than white people.
I've met white criminals, lived with them too. They're nasty people, just like most criminals, and they too are really bad people. However, they're definitely a lot less bother to the average person than the black people I am living with now are.
From my personal experience black people are more violent, more likely to commit crimes, and are more likely to resist arrest.
Please don't accuse the police of being racist without first experiencing things first hand.
To any black people reading this, I really mean absolutely no offence, and I hope you realise I am only taking about my experiences. If I were to meet you, I would respect you the same way I respect myself or anyone else. Where you're from, what your names is, what food you like or what colour your skin is really makes no difference to me. The way you behave does.
A federal judge found that New York City violated the First Amendment when it fired police officer Joseph Locurto and firefighters Robert Steiner and Jonathan Walters for their off-duty participation in a racist parade float. The judge was right, but not for the reasons trumpeted in the media.
