Why is Reditt Hudson of all people being listen too?

I knew the ACLU had lost both its mind and soul the the collective citizens for rights crowd.

Jaco is dragging down the reputation and integrity of KTVI with this crap.

Check your "facts" before running this dribble.

Minority groups are getting searched more often:DUH look at the news stupid and you would see that it's the minority doing the crimes.

If minorities are committing the crimes then it's not racial profiling, read the news they commit most of the crimes.

Another example of the media stirring the racist pot. You would be better served to support your law enforcement agencies and knock of the grandstanding with half-wit comments.

It's like this folks: When a much Smaller portion of the population (20-25%), is committing the Major portion of Crimes (80% and up), the Police do what they have to do to combat the group that commits the most crimes. And, if that group has a problem with that, well, they need to police their own. If they don't want to be profiled, then start getting your own people to live and act as responsible citizens. Also, when they commit these crimes, don't whine and say it's everybody else's fault that you can't control yer own people.

Well let's all just jump on the racist bandwagon and let's start kicking in all the "white" people's homes looking for meth labs or no I got a good one..let's audit all the whit peoples bank accounts looking for white collar crimes...or no here's a good one how bout we go to the so called white schools and check all the whote kids coming in to make sure no one shoots the place up...I am glad I really don't feel this way!!! Long story short, crime exists everywhere I see white people from ladue, chesterfield and all those other suburbs come into my community everyday to buy their drugs for their habits and then go back home screaming we need to do something about blacks commiting crimes..what a joke...st. louis city police need to start pulling them over so everyone can see how it feels to be pulled over for no apparent reason..being a person who has never commited a crime a day in my life, i do not feel i should have to be stopped everytime i want to go to West county Mall just because in your eyes, the color of my skin means I just may commit a crime..you may as well put us back in the fields..some of you racist biggots would just love that!

What a brilliant comment made by Isom! What would he know about anything? He impresses me a being a complete woose! A namby-pamby, ineffectual police chief - how did he get that job in the first place? Must be a friend of Slay and the police commissioners - it ain't WHAT you know, it's WHO you know - get him out, Slay out, and that will take care of 50% of the problems in the city - then cut the cops loose to do their jobs properly -that is, if you can find an honest one on the force - particularly south st. Louis....

Most schools have metal detectors, we just reformed an entire industry based on white collar crimes. Housing profiling would help the meth lab problem. Noone is picking on you

Oh believe me, the SPD DOES pull over whites in predominantly black neighborhoods for no reason other than that just to see what were doing..just got pulled over on the west-side and the cop comes to the window & says "Whats goin' on?, what are you doing over here?" & I'm no criminal either.

Exactly and either way you look at the situation it sucks!!!! I have white friends who are harrassed by the police when they come to visit me and the first thing they are asked is "what are doing in this neighborhood?" and if you ask me it just fuels racism and discrimination. Where is it noted that you can't come hang out with me on my block b/c of your skin color and me on yours b/c of mine..those days are long gone!!! At least we thought :-(

Its Okay To Hate

United States

#17 Jul 23, 2010
It's okay to hate.

You liberals hate Germans because they fought back against the jews that destroyed their culture, country and economy. You hate Whites because some fight back against negros that rape their women and rob and murder them.

It's totally acceptable to hate negros, jews, liberals, homosexuals, communists...... these are tiny minorities that destroy societies and wreck economies. There is absolutely nothing wrong with hating these groups and you should explore what you can do to destroy these groups. They hate you and you should fight back. Don't be a coward anymore. These groups hate your guts, show them hatred back.

All white people are racially profiled on the Broadview Security tv ads. It must make every black person feel so comfortable to know that their homes will NEVER be broken into since ALL of the burglars and home invaders are white and ALL of the victims are white. Those ads, just like the racial profiling forum are examples of political correctness run amok.

I would be pissed as hell if my suburban police department did not pull over a car loda at 3:00 am.... I would also be pissed if St Louis police did not pull over a bunch of rich white kids a the Shell Station at Goodfellow and I-70at 3:00am. BOTH are up to no good.... It's called good police work !!

Grow up and face today's realities. This piece of crap article does more harm than any racist comments we may say.... GEEEEEZ !!!

Why don't you teach us how, you Hilly Billy? I bet you are one of those racist as chicks that wear overalls with your cigarettes rolled up the arm of your t-shirt. Send you back to the kiddy farm so you can finish molesting the babies, and sleeping with your own kids.
The reason you are so warped your daddy is probably your uncle or Grand daddy.

Who has actually researched the statistics on the percentage of crime committed by each race? And do not say what you see on TV. TV's research methods are often poor and people attend to what fits in their preconceived beliefs and tend to ignore evidence to the contrary. Go find out the truth of the matter. Think about how racial profiling works. Since it is happening statistics on minorities committing crimes will be artificially inflated compared to whites because they are more likely to ignore or be less stringent about checking an individual who does not fit the profile. This applies even whether whites or minorities commit more crimes. Every race commits crimes of all degrees of severity.
