Racial profiling in law enforcement is referenced when a law enforcement officer targets an individual for suspicion of a crime. A broader definition of racial profiling in law enforcements is when a law enforcement officer, uses an individual’s race or ethnicity, age , time of the day (usually later in the day), dress code and also location to accuse a person of a crime. In today’s world the term racial profiling can be viewed in various view points, because of people having different opinions on the term, many disagreements occur. Some people believe that specific incidents are not cases of racial profiling and others think otherwise, needless to say an argument occurs.

According to the 11 Facts about Racial Discrimination, “The U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics concluded that an African American male born in 2001 has a 32% chance of going to jail in his lifetime, while a Latino male has a 17% chance, and a white male only has a 6% chance” (11 Facts about Racial Discrimination 1). Racial profiling, or discriminating against a whole group of people based on their race, is an unjust act and a big problem in our society today. Arresting people because of how they look like, or what they believe in is absurd. According to ACLU, “Racial Profiling refers to the discriminatory practice by law enforcement officials of targeting individuals for suspicion of crime based on the individual 's race, ethnicity, religion or national origin” (ACLU 1). Although law enforcement assumes they are doing their job, they need to remain objective and fair in all situations, because they are violating rights, lacking protection and risking lives.
In the Justice System there are a lot of flaws that affect many people of color, and from past history, it has shown how these practices can lead to very unfortunate events, one of these practices is racial profiling. Racial profiling is when law enforcement uses race and ethnicity as grounds to determine if someone, typically of color, is guilty of doing something illegal. Racial profiling is a major problem in this country, this as well affects many citizens that are mainly of color because law enforcement usually sees them as targets, and it is important to improve and fixed this issue because there are many tragic incidents that have been caused of racial profiling.
One of the most imminent threats looming within American society is race relations. America is a melting pot of different races, cultures, and religions, yet the matter of racial profiling still remains prominent today. By definition it is considered “an activity carried out by enforcers of the law wherein they investigate or stop any individual in traffic or round up people of the same race or ethnicity for crime suspicion” (NYLN.org ). This profiling has become a significant catalyst in the tension that has been ensuing between minorities and the government. Hostility has grown due to the apparent and intentional targeting of “brown people”, and
The most visible source in a racial profiling case is Title 42, U.S.C. section 1441 under the Crime Control Act of 1994 (Hemmens, 2014). Other sources such as the Fourth Amendment, and Fourteenth Amendment provides some relief in the issues of racial profiling, but Title 42 section 14141 is more effective. Title 42, section 14141 seek to end misconduct of law enforcement officers in their pattern and practice (Hemmens, 2014, p. 53).
People aren't angry about just this singular issue. They're frustrated with the repeated injustices and failure for the system to work for people of color.
The police officer bringing the detained man fitting the description of a robbery that just occurred back to the scene in order for the cashier to identify him would be a showup. The one man show up occurred almost directly after the offense had been committed. This is more suggestive than a lineup. (2015) I have never personally been apart of a lineup or conducted one. However, I have conducted several showups. I was able to locate a suspect of felony vandalism and criminal trespass thanks to the eye witness testimony. I was able to bring him back to the scene of where the offense had taken place within thirty minutes and the witness was able to identify him as the suspect. Not to mention, as I have stated previously the cameras in the store
According to Leander police, the officer noticed the firearm in the man's hand before he began shooting into the driver's side window of the car. The suspect then fled the scene.
Racism and racial stereotypes have existed throughout human history. The radical belief associated by thinking the skin color, language, or a person’s nationality is the reason that someone is one way or another has become extremely detrimental to society. Throughout human existence it has sparked tension between groups of people and ultimately influenced wars and even caused slavery. Racism in America dates back to when Native Americans were often attacked, relocated, and assimilated into European culture. Since then, racism within the states has grown to include various other cultures as well. In the essays by Brent Staples, Bharati Mukherjee, and Manuel Munoz, they discuss the various causes as well as the effects that racial stereotyping can place on a victim and the stigma it leaves behind for the society to witness.
An example of injustice was when I watched my friend get pulled over after leaving the bars in San Jose. He is a persian male and was pulled over immediately after getting into his car. He was asked to perform a breathalyzer test directly after being pulled over without any prior questioning. After passing the test, he was allowed to go as he was our DD for the night. This was an example of racial profiling in my opinion.
There is not one single way of correctly defining racial profiling. The definition ranges from including ethnicity, race, and nationality as the only or one of many ways to apply law enforcement procedures. Different offices such as the Office of the Arizona Attorney General define racial profiling as "Use by law enforcement personnel of an individual's race or ethnicity as a factor in articulating reasonable suspicion to stop question or arrest an individual, unless race or ethnicity is part of an identifying description of a specific suspect for a specific crime." Overall, the definitions are similar to the fact that they identify that some type of behavior through law enforcement is taking place due to race or ethnicity rather than the behavior
There is no nice way in arresting a suspect or criminal The police are to protect and serve The police are our hired bodyguards, our first, our batons,and guns They do the dirty work to protect us because we are too afraid, to unskilled or too civilized to do the dirty work We want them to keep
