Epp addresses California racial-profiling law

Tuesday, October 6, 2015

Professor_Charles_EppProfessor Charles Epp was interviewed for the Christian Science Monitor for an article titled, "California law could help minorities, or just bury police in paperwork." Here's an excerpt:

"California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a law to create a public database of police stops in an effort to combat racial profiling. Advocates and critics call it one of the toughest in the nation.... [Under this new law,] law enforcement all over the Golden State will have to document the race or 'perceived ethnicity' of suspects in any such stop or arrest. The law is one of the toughest in the nation, aimed at creating, and making public, a database of information that can be analyzed for potential patterns of racial profiling."
