Feds accuse North Carolina sheriff s office of racial profiling [Obama is a race baiter]

North Carolina pastor Otoniel Recinos has been offering an unusual warning these days to members of his church: Don’t drive in nearby Alamance County. It’s not safe, he warns them, because of the sheriff’s department.

A two-year Justice Department investigation backs up what Recinos and other Latinos in the region say they’ve known for a long time: Traffic stops by Alamance County sheriff’s deputies are sometimes part of a “pattern of racial profiling” aimed at searching for illegal immigrants, according to a statement this week by Thomas E. Perez, the assistant U.S. attorney general for the civil rights division.

Lots of nasty accusations being leveled against law enforcement...not much acknowledgment of illegal aliens being in our nation.

It’s illegal to target illegality. How dare they, the knuckledraggers. Why, there ought to be a law.

Yeah....imagine getting behind a junker work pickup/van crammed to the gills with little darker skinned people, the driver driving exactly at the speed limit or even below it, and only one speaks enough English to answer an officer’s questions.....nope, no illegals ever there....

"Deputies were between four to 10 times more likely to stop Latino drivers for traffic violations than non-Latinos, the Justice Department said. Many of the stops took place at traffic checkpoints organized by deputies near Hispanic communities. Latinos were arrested for violations, while others got only warnings or citations, the department said."

I dunno about North Carolina, but I'd betcha that up here in the People's Republic of New Jersey, Blacks and Latinos are at least four to ten times more likely to ignore traffic laws and to drive cars with expired inspection stickers, bald tires, broken and burned out lights, and belching smoke than are whites and Asians.

If our local cops have a ticket quota to fill, they just need to park at a couple of places and wait a minute or two.

If you're driving down the road in a POS that's shedding parts like a Bachelor Party stripper, with half your signal and headlights out, with 14 people in a vehicle designed to seat 4 safely and then get stopped with no license or insurance what are they supposed to do?

F these sonsofbitches. This is OUR country, they are OUR laws. If you don't like it GET THE F OUT! On second thought, just GET THE F OUT anyway.

I am so tired of Criminal Illegal Aliens whining about being “profiled”

Your presence in the USA is breaking the law....yes law enforcement is going to be after you

Also it is good to see law enforcement active in rounding up Illegal Aliens. So many of our LEOs are hesitant to follow immigration law because they may end up in jail for “violating the rights” of a Criminal Illegal Alien

Illegal Alien Amnesty is Anti-American Bigotry
