NYC Marijuana Arrest Capital, 52 Percent Blacks: Study
New York City has now become the marijuana arrest capital of the world. These arrests are primarily people who have very small amounts of marijuana and are targeted by the police department. The report also shows that African-Americans are overwhelmingly profiled and arrested by police who claim that they are not biased when they are conducting searches. Yeah right! Read the story below:

The study by Queens College sociologist Harry G. Levin, titled “Marijuana Arrest Crusade,” accused police of purposely singling out minorities during the 10-year crackdown. It said that data provided by stat Division of Criminal Justice Services showed that between 1997 and 2007, 52 percent of the suspects were black, 31 percent Hispanic and only 15 percent white.

The findings are further proof that “racial profiling is a fact of life on the streets of New York,” Donna Lieberman, executive director of the New York Civil Liberties Union, told a news conference at the group’s Manhattan headquarters.
