Targeted by Skin Color. In Nazi Germany , as part of the destruction process of the Jews, Hitler created an elaborate system of movement restrictions and identification measures that included personal Jew identification cards, passports marked with a J, assignment of names and the outward marking of persons with a yellow star. Jews age six years or older were allowed to appear in public only when wearing the Jewish star. The star enabled the police to pick up any Jew, anywhere, anytime.
Remind you of "stop and frisk" or "papers please?" In this racist system there is no need for Blacks or Latinos to wear a star; non-whites are targeted by skin color. [MORE] and [MORE]. Know that the 4th Amendment is a joke - believe in it at your own risk.
Blacks Make 75 % of All Police Stops yet are only 1/3 of population From [HERE] The ACLU of Illinois found that the Chicago Police Department (CPD) is unlawfully stopping a “shocking number of people” and singling out people of color. “Chicagoans were stopped more than four times as often as New Yorkers at the height of New York City’s stop and frisk practice.” In the summer of 2014, CPD made over 250,000 stops that did not lead to an arrest. While blacks constitute about a third of the city’s population, they accounted for nearly three-quarters of all stops.
CPD has increased pedestrian stops under the leadership of Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy, who spent much of his career in the New York Police Department and was previously the police chief in Newark, New Jersey. Both those cities’ stop and frisk policies have received court challenges. CPD does not collect systematic data on all frisks or stops that result in an arrest or ordinance violation.
In order to begin to restore trust in the community, the ACLU recommends: collect data on all stops and frisks and make them public, provide regular training on legal requirements for stops and frisks, and require officers to issue a detailed receipt for every pedestrian stop. The report’s findings were also featured in Newsweek.
PHILADELPHIA POLICE CONTINUE STOP AND FRISKS WITHOUT REASONABLE SUSPICION
The Philadelphia Police Department continues to stop and frisk tens of thousands of individuals — particularly people of color — without legal justification, according to a recent report by the ACLU of Pennsylvania and the law firm of Kairys, Rudovsky, Messing & Feinberg. This is the fifth report since the city entered into a consent decree in 2011 following a lawsuit about its stop and frisk practices.
The report found that 37% of the over 200,000 pedestrian stops in 2014, and 39% of frisks were made without reasonable suspicion. Although Philadelphia's population is 55% black or Hispanic, racial minorities accounted for 80% of stops and 89% of frisks. The report notes that factors other than an individual’s race, such as neighborhood demographics or crime rates, do not fully explain these racially disparate outcomes. Furthermore, the report found that contraband was seized in only 5% of frisks in 2013. Attorney David Rudovsky explains: “The department has done a lot of retraining, but unless you properly supervise and hold people accountable, it's hard to get results.”
