<<Black males will always be stopped and arrested in far greater numbers than they make up in the population because black males commit violent crimes in far greater numbers than they make up in the population. Black males, who represent 6 percent of the population, commit more than 40 percent of violent crimes. In New York City, based on victim reports, a black male is 13 times more likely to have committed a violent crime than a white male. How are the police going to avoid stopping a greater percentage of black males than white, if they are to protect citizens from the criminals who prey on them?>>

(author David Horowitz, Salon.com plus syndication)

===============================

Wow, Horowitz has got guts for reporting this fact. This was a great article and the above quote was taken from page 2. I'm sure that he will be labeled a racist for daring to report on this subject.

As far as the police go, they're damned if they do and damned if they don't. If they actively arrest the perpetrators of crimes in these communities they are accused of singling out the B/M's. If they look the other way they are accused of letting crime run rampant and failing to care.

The saddest outcome is that the news media largely fails to take notice of the numbers quoted by Horowitz. Yes, I shall accept Horowitz's numbers. If you really doubt the writer's integrity or are offended as far as this article is concerned........get a clue.
