CNN needs to give ALL the facts from that 2 page summary paper that looked at policing from 2011-2015. Awesome beagle dog hawaiian shirt. There were 9 million less traffic interactions. 52 million in total for 2015.

Whites got pulled over 3% more than any other race. Only 2% of traffic stops lead to a use of force. Of the 1 million above, 5.2% (52,000 nation wide for a whole year)were black 5.1 Hispanic, 2.4 white (doesn’t mention the other 80%, maybe race was unknown? But all those facts were never mentioned by CNN. Only the last one, without context. Dahhhh. Awesome beagle dog hawaiian shirt. I would wager the majority of violent felons are arrested during traffic stops. That’s not counting all the other serious felons apprehended during such stops. Are they responsible for arresting people who are driving under the influence? And what if the person driving under the influence doesn’t want to stop or get out of the car? What if they won’t take a field sobriety test ? What happens if they take off or refuse to be arrested? Not to mention how well documented driving under the influence has to be as lawyers are waiting to get people off. What happens if the person speeding doesn’t want to stop or slaps the ticket out of the person’s hand or pushes them away? What if they pull a gun or knife ? What happens when people who are racing refuse to stop for their ticket ? What happens if the person texting and driving starts to argue about a ticket? What if the person is wanted on a felony warrant and refuses to give the person his license? What happens when people learn they can just drive off and not get their ticket? Will the person have everything documented? Lots of things to think through first.
