Beaumont,Perhaps you should direct your post at McVeigh since he started his post with "criminal alien."You are actually flaming this post your statement.Can you back up your posts with facts regarding Hispanic/Blacks being a majority in some police departments?Additionally, I never mentioned in my posts about saturation patrols being a racist tool.Try reading and thinking before you post.

Since you are a little off on profiling anyway I will mention this. A few months ago an officer in LA (city or was it county) was charged for racial profiling. He had been getting by with it for a few years. He was checking the race box for Caucasian on tickets he issued even though most of the tickets were issued to black and Mexican persons so it did not show up in the police computer statistics

Michael, my bad, your post could be interpreted more than one way, and I likely took it wrong. As for proof of Hispanic majority departments, California is a Hispanic majority state, so it follows that police depts. would follow that pattern, especially in heavily Latino cities. After your post I looked at a number of sites, even the DOJ and could not find statistics on dept. racial make-up. I've read a lot of blogs asserting racial bias in check points and saturation patrols and I want to hear that line of thought.

I don't care how they catch Drunk drivers, check points or regular patrol as long as they get them off the streets before they kill someone. Now if they actually got charged according to the severity of the crime, and sentenced for the same. Especially when their DUI involves a serious injury or murder to someone.
