i think its easy, too too easy to just throw racial origin in, in my exsperiance the uk police generally treat poor people badly and not those who may be in a financial postion to fight back.
i was once stopped breathlized and questioned extensivly for wearing a base ball hat in a very nice car, clearly people driiving round in a jag that they came by honestly wouldnt wear a base ball hat, so criminal , obviously,,,,,
what we call stereotyping, the police call profiling, i made a note, that if i was ever,driving round in a stolen car or one loaded with contraband, not to wear a base ball hat
Yeah, you live in the UK, I'm talking about the states. You guys simply don't have the history that we have. In the past police departments were actively used in my country as a method to purposely control black and brown people. It's getting better thankfully, but unfortunately some people want the police to be the "thin blue line" to hold back the unwashed hordes.
