To me, it doesn't matter what race you are in this county. It matters if you look like a young man. Anyone that resembles a young man 16-25 is a target to get pulled over. Maybe it is b/c DuPage has an extremely low crime rate for a county with a population of close to 1 million. I'm 24 and I've driven cars that don't stand out on the roads nor am I blasting a stereo system. I've been pulled over for very questionable reasons. For one, I got pulled over by the Downers Grove PD for "not using my signal long enough while changing lanes." I told the officer that I let it blink 6 or 7 times, which I did. He then proceded to say that there were some burglaries in the area where I came from and then asked to search my car. I am white and live in this area. I've heard many stories from other young guys close to my age that have had similar situations occur to them. My point is, they look for the young males more than they look for people that fit certain racial groups.

I'm looking to move to Dupage as soon as the market stops churning. What WONDERFUL NEWS! I, for one, am sick of speeding gangbanger types in their lowriders blasting their musica, flying their Mexican flags and acting like jerks. Thank goodness, some police are doing their jobs!
