Wicked Racial Profiling Trick

Talk about grasping at straws.

That the row was over straws, and that a Chrylser Corporation vehicle figures into the suspects’ repertoire, tells me that we’re dealing with Africanus Bellcurvius.

Also, notice that the victim was pulled from the inside to the outside of the fast feeder through the drive-thru window, the opposite of what happened in Hazelwood over the weekend.

I know you want to make fun of us, and that’s the objective of you making this news the front page headline, so it probably wouldn’t matter to you for me to point out that that’s the Carson stadium, the one that looks like the cap to a plastic juice bottle, that won’t happen.  That was the Spanos-Davis alternative to the Stan Plan in Inglewood.

You might want to call it horrific and unspeakable, and it is.

But KCK just calls it “Wednesday.”

I was especially interested, because St. Louis is implementing this sort of “Comp-Stat” predictive analysis.  Just as there’s a KCPD-UMKC partnership, and a Memphis PD-University of Memphis partnership, there’s a SLPD-UMSL partnership in this matter, mainly because there’s a SLPD-UMSL revolving door.

The main interesting takeaways for me were:

* Even software engages in racial profiling.  Which means that perhaps racial profiling is a feature, not a bug.  But what it tells me is that if some people think that offloading things to software so that it can do what humans can’t because humans fear racial profiling accusations are mistaken.

* The whole thing produces very little in the way of real tangible positive results.  The best it can do is affect momentary blips in homicides, that are just one or two off anomalies.  I mean, why would it?  You’ve got software to point you to the worst of the worst in Bell Curve City, but it’s still Bell Curve City.

* It goes back to the point I made here a few days ago.  Since a lot of black murders and other serious violent crime exists within a network and a circle of do-badders, and we’re constantly told not to care about it because it’s not our problem for the most part, then why bother with any of this?  If we’re not allowed to care about it as individuals, we should quit caring about it publicly and officially.

Thanks to Puggg for alerting me to this story.

Star:

FBI, Jackson County investigate injuries to inmates at hands of jail guards

Jackson County and the FBI are investigating four recent cases of inmates who were allegedly physically abused by guards at the county jail. Both probes seek to learn whether they were isolated instances or part of a pattern indicating a broken system that needs reform.

Injuries to four male inmates ranged from bruises and stitches to a man who suffered multiple fractures, including a broken neck, when a guard or guards used excessive force after the man was restrained.

Four guards thought to have caused those injuries in separate incidents are no longer on the county payroll. All were members of the jail’s elite Critical Incident Response Team, which is called in when inmates cause disturbances.

Officials would not say whether they were fired or left of their own accord.

They said there was no racial pattern to the attacks. Two of the victims are black and two are white. Three of the guards are black and one is white.

In this case, it wasn’t racial, and mostly likely not what these guard on inmate brutality situations really are, gang bangs.  That’s right, many of these black guards are as ganged up as the inmates, and use the opportunity of their official power to whack an inmate from a rival gang.  This is why a lot of these Federal or state investigations of jail and prison guard abuse wind up going into the rabbit hole, because they find out that the black guards are in gangs, and they don’t want to endanger affirmative action in this area.
