Question and answer
What does empirical evidence suggest about whether using racial profiling to search vehicles is an effective law enforcement strategy? (Points : 1) There are as of yet no decisive
conclusions. Hit rates in car searches are higher for people of color. Racial profiling is practical and productive. Racial profiling is counterproductive.
No , it is not a good thing police officers use racial profiling , because Racial profiling is a blatant violation of the Fourteenth Amendment. The Fourteenth Amendment states, very clearly, [ [ that no state may "deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." Racial profiling is, by definition, based on a standard of unequal protection. Blacks and Latinos are
more likely to be searched by police and less likely to be treated as law-abiding citizens; whites are less likely to be searched by police and more likely to be treated as law-abiding citizens. This is incompatible with the concept of equal protection. ] ]
