The fight to keep bias from influencing law enforcement actions is as old as the Constitution itself. And, tragically, for much of our history, biased policing – based on fear instead of fact – has been widespread and ineffective. Just as troubling is Congress’ inability to pass legislation to address the problem of bias-based policing both in the contexts of post-9/11 security measures and the traditional “driving while black or brown” turnpike racial profiling. A bill called the End Racial Profiling Act (ERPA) is pending in Congress today and it deserves our support. Dekalb Officer P. Lewis in January 2013, Badge #2762, in Georgia uses excess force on young black woman for traffic stop. Slamming her on the hood of car then is thrown to the ground to forcefully knees her in the back. Full cooperation from her this cop needs to go. We are mobilizing, #racialprofiling. Among other things, the ERPA is a good first step toward addressing traditional racial profiling, driving while black or brown and some post-9/11 selective enforcement. It provides victims a legal recourse, implements and funds key data collection programs to identify and track discriminatory policing and gives the attorney general the ability to deny funds to police departments that refuse to comply.
