Minority Report = Reporting Minorities

Sure, the cops themselves could compile this list, but then that would be racial profiling.  Because Jesse Jackson.

As you can read at the end, the algorithm is specifically written in such a way to avoid discriminatory variables.

Remember my contention, that data is how we do racial profiling without actually doing racial profiling, giving ourselves plausible deniability, and in this case, legal immunity.  Sure, this algorithm studiously avoids discrimination, so it will be just a coincidence when the names it pops out are names like Shitavious, Shaniqua, L’Booshondria, N’D’Mario, Boo, Shuntrice, NuKeese and Euphemiette.

Also, while these cops are on the way to visit the people that this algorithm generates, bet on the HUD people riding shotgun in the cop car to bring the big mama of the house an AFFH application.

The original story.

The update.

The fight video.

My commentary, not really necessary.  Except to say that black women fight, then drag their men into it.  This merry-go-round won’t stop until there’s at least one firearm-related homicide.





Blacks Sue Business For Not Engaging In Racial Profiling

The world just got a little bit loonier:

Attorney Chris Hurley said the 7-Eleven’s operator knew the area surrounding the store suffered from high street crime and should have had well-trained security that could have prevented the actions that led to Gaines’ death.

But if the cops do it, the blacks and lawyers would be caterwauling about MUH RAYSHUL PWOFYLYNG and MUH DISPIT IMPAK.

Alternatively, I could have entitled this post:

Happy day.

But…

This, the activists’ complaint said, violated the Illinois Civil Rights Act of 2003, which forbids municipalities from engaging in policies that create have a disparate negative impact on racial and ethnic minorities.

Do you realize what a legal tar baby that is? Almost all positive public policy (positive, meaning that it is the result of written laws and ordinances, as opposed to negative, which is the lack of action on the part of public officials) has a disparate impact on racial and ethnic minorities. Murder being a crime has a disparate impact on black men.  That said, I think the main reason why this lawsuit was laughed out of court was because the Illinois Civil Rights Act of 2003 forbids positive policies that have a disparate impact on blah blah blah, but it can’t do anything about negative policies.

UPDATE

The actual ICRA 2003 text, which isn’t very long.  But, here’s the relevant section:

No unit of State, county, or local government in Illinois shall…utilize criteria or methods of administration that have the effect of subjecting individuals to discrimination because of their race, color, national origin, or gender.

Which means I was right, there can only be a violation if there is a positive public action, not a negative one.

Haven’t done one of these in while:

At least 20 of the 111 black firefighters hired by the Chicago Fire Department after a marathon discrimination lawsuit had not been medically cleared by a department physician before starting work and two of them “suffered serious medical events and died while off-duty,” the city’s inspector general disclosed Tuesday.

Well That’s Easy

Fox 59 Indianapolis:

Indiana’s gun laws are again in the spotlight here and nationwide after some recent remarks by President Obama.

The president blamed Indiana’s gun laws for gun violence in Chicago during a town hall meeting Thursday. The comments echoed similar ones he made in October.

“Well, the problem is, is that about 30, 40 percent of those guns are coming from Indiana, across the border, where there are much laxer laws,” President Obama said.

Well then using that logic, all of Indiana should be a crime ridden hell hole, because that’s where the evil undocumented transactions are happening.

But, we already know that Indiana has magic dirt, and certain parts of Chicago have tragic dirt.

Or, maybe Trump’s great wall should go between Illinois and Indiana, not the United States and Mexico.  Or better yet, it should go around certain parts of Chicago, almost making those parts an open air prison.
