In my opinion, California Highway Patrol Officer Delbert Gray is the Ollie North of the ?War on Drugs?. Officer Gray, who finds illegal drugs for a living, patrols I-40 near Needles, California and he uses binoculars, not radar. Like Colonel North, Officer Gray believes deeply in what he does and while I applaud his objective, his methods leave me cold. If he thinks a vehicle contains drugs, he?ll stop the driver and conduct a search. If he finds nothing, he?ll sometimes burden a minority driver with an expensive ticket. Officer Gray believes the end justifies the means and he expects prosecutors and judges to go along. Those who disagree are un-American.

I read RP?s letter with interest. I'm not a police officer nor have I ever been a police officer but years ago I did a ride along with the L.A.P.D. This was set up by a friend of mine and it was an experience of a life time. Terror isn't really a good word to describe some events that these people have to face every day and must become immune to in the performance of their dangerous jobs.

There are many cops out there who use very questionable tactics that in some, do violate the rights afforded to us by the constitution. However, a little more research should go into your thoughts on CHP Trooper Joe David and Trooper Gray.

 I want to report an incident of police abuse which I experienced last night while waiting at the Amtrak station in Victorville, California for my 68 year old mother. My husband and I were waiting in our truck in the Amtrak parking lot. My mom called and said there would be a delay in her arrival, so we went to get coffee and came back to wait at the station parking lot. We were there about 10 minutes when a uniformed deputy knocked on our window. He asked to see my husband's ID. My husband was accommodating. Being an American Indian(Comanche), he has endured a lifetime of abuse by law enforcement. He works for a nonprofit which has a contract with the Feds and there is some language he can be dismissed for any charges brought against him, so he doesn't see being unlawfully arrested as something he wants to experience.

I've received e-mails recently from two people whose lives have been impacted by racial profiling in totally different ways. Demetri Conway, a 37 year old black Kickboxing and Martial Arts instructor at Yavapai College in Arizona, wants to initiate a class action suit "because I am sick and tired of the racism here". Joe Coley sells racial profiling insurance for $17.95 per month. Demetri and Joe have granted TB permission to publish their e-mails, so here they are in their own words:

Attorney General John Ashcroft's plan to monitor the travel habits of citizens of enemy nations is NOT racial Profiling, it's COMMON SENSE. If he was monitoring the IRA, there wouldn't be a problem, but if a person is questioned or just "monitored," happens to have skin that is one shade darker than Richie Cunningham, well...it must be RACISM!!!

A settlement in a lawsuit accusing Cincinnati police of harassing blacks won final approval Tuesday from the last of the groups that needed to sign off on it. All 27 representatives of the American Civil Liberties Union in Ohio who voted supported the deal, said Scott Greenwood, the chapter's general counsel. The ACLU was the fourth and final party to approve the settlement, which was reached last week. Rejection by any of the parties could have sent the year-old lawsuit on to trial. "That really is a deep change in Cincinnati, and it makes us a national model instead of something that is held up to scorn and ridicule," Greenwood said.

"Racial Profiling" is, and has been, a sensitive subject in the world of law enforcement.  The frustration of many people regarding "racial profiling" stems from the general public's lack of understanding regarding the procedures that MUST be followed to get the job done--and done right. The same holds true for officers' use of force or "shooting" policy.  People who don't understand the FULL procedure and the reasons for these policies from beginning to end, wind up condemning only what they see, "Well...the guy was black...so that must be why they shot him."

Letter to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan

 

On the occasion of the World Conference Against Racism, we seek your intervention in addressing and challenging the racial and ethnic discrimination that characterizes the "war on drugs" in so many nations. In the United States and many other nations, it is no longer possible to talk honestly and frankly about racism without talking about the "war on drugs." This is a war not on plants and chemicals, but on citizens and other human beings who all too often are members of racial and ethnic minorities.

For years the tobacco industry denied that smoking causes cancer and refused to turn over documents. For years law enforcement has denied racial profiling exists and refused to turn over documents. The tobacco industry is being punished financially for their years of deceit. I think peace officers who target minorities should lose their badges.

The National Organization of Black law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) issued its report on racial profiling at a briefing Thursday evening at the US Capitol. Captain Ronald Davis of the Oakland, California Police Department, who is also a NOBLE official presented the report. Davis described racial profiling as a ?symptom? of Biased-Based Policing.

?I think that the attendance and interest shown for this conference demonstrates how critical racial profiling is to the nation. I would consider the briefing successful if the attendees left with a better knowledge and understanding of the issue. With that being said, it?s time to move on to Next Steps,? Davis said. He then outlined the ?steps? that law enforcement agencies and legislatures can take to address racial profiling.
