More on Police Shootings

Presumption of guilt or suspicion for walking and driving while black or brown is a verified

and common occurrence in America. There is overwhelming testimony to this and anecdotal evidence

to the fact. Pretext traffic stops have been ruled to be legal by the courts, but that does not necessarily make

them a good idea. Bullying and intimidation of drivers, and especially minority drivers and passengers does not

win any friends for the police. Fishing for drug violations on the highway under the pretext of enforcing traffic laws

certainly does violate the spirit if not the letter of the fourth amendment. Do these quasi-legal and excessive traffic stops

lead to shootings and manslaughter? In the aggregate I would say yes. This is an update to an original posting on Aug. 22, 2017.
