Chicago Police OK Independent Stop-And-Frisk Evaluations

The Chicago Police Department will allow independent evaluations of its stop-and-frisk procedures and increased public disclosure of the practice under an agreement announced Friday with the American Civil Liberties Union, reports the Associated Press.

The agreement follows a March 2015 report from the ACLU that found Chicago officers disproportionately targeted blacks and other racial minorities in hundreds of thousands of stop, question and frisk encounters.

"This unprecedented agreement with the ACLU is a demonstration of CPD's commitment to fairness, respect, transparency," Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said.

Under the agreement, former U.S. Magistrate Judge Arlander Keys will provide public reports twice a year on Chicago police investigatory stops and pat downs, looking at whether the city is meeting its legal requirements. It goes into effect immediately.

It's too bad that the ACLU has got their panties in a wad. I would bet that Sharpton is in the wings somewhere.

When are we going to tell the ACL FING u to go out on an 8 hour shift with the CPD officers and see what they deal with on a daily basis. I guarantee it would put a damper in their spirit that the CPD is targeting certain races.

I hope when they figure this "equal treatment" out they also take into consideration NOT the % of Black population vs white but also the % of CRIME as sealed to the over all rate that the Black / Latino/White populations commit,. THIS is the real comparison, not pure population numbers. We all know that Black commit a higher rate of crimes per person then other Races, has been proved statistically for years. USE THESE stats to be fair. Otherwise its a joke and I can tell you now there will be more % of Blacks stopped then Whites or Hispanics, that where the criminal element is most concentrated. Race aside, thats the true stats. Until we use those then we are all just wasting time.
