and the now overturned convictions of Blacks for uncorroborated drug-dealings.
Needless to say, it made for interesting TV. Knowing a little about Law Enforcement from family members and such... the show or rather the ex-cop and the system in Tulia, Tx and their application of the law and lack of respect for due process - i.e. establishing undeniable evidence and/or honestly presuming innocence before guilt is proved by more than hearsay - was simply unbelieveable.
Law Enforcement definitely is in a quandry. Most drug users are, of course, White. But are Blacks easy "targets" because they (we) apparently do ours more "out in the open" or are the disproportionate amount of arrests simply a matter of race?
Of course, the frequency of Blacks having their vehicle searched for "drug suspicions" can hardly be explained by anything other than stereotypical prejudice to some degree. (I have more to offer on this but I'll wait on responses.)
