What A Shock! Chicago Police Targeting Minority Neighborhoods With DUI Checkpoints.

There has been much attention in recent months to the ongoing racial injustice by police forces across the country. Some try to rationalize claiming that the minorities targeted simply engage in more crime. They usually refer to false statistics that somehow, in their mind, prove that minorities are actually worse people than others.

People are people. There are good, bad, and everywhere in between.

This article clearly calls out injustice that takes place in Chicago. Statistically, other neighborhoods should warrant more DUI traffic checks, assuming the goal is to really get the drunk drivers off the streets. But when the police create DUI traffic checkpoints in minority neighborhoods while almost completely skipping white, “well to do” neighborhoods, and those areas where more police live, it speaks loud and clear that racial profiling is a big part of police activity. And it speaks loud and clear that getting drunk drivers off the streets and making driving safer isn’t their primary goal.
