Unrest in Ferguson about a lot more than police shooting unarmed teen.

the big point

look at the search rates then look at the contraband hit rates.

the police are terrorizing Black people for no good reason… even though they’re getting more evidence of crime off whites.

crunched a couple of numbers and even taking into account that the black population is about double the white population in the “local” area (i’d like some definition on that but i’ll assume in the meantime that it’s the boundaries of jurisdiction), black people as a group are being stopped 6.75 times more than white people as a group, and even when put in perspective with the population ratios, are being stopped 3.61 times more than white people (and make up 90% of the people searched).

The disparity numbers listed indicate that the black population is overrepresented in stop rates by 137%, and this number reads as way too low to me (compare to the number I calculated of 361%).

christel-thoughts pointed out the contraband rate specifically, which is notable because searches of white people produced contraband 12.33% more times than searches of black people, but the arrest rate for black individuals is virtually twice that of white people.

For people who would rather see this represented visually by percent of the total:

I know it’s small, but opening in a new tab may help. When it says 0% for some of the pieces, it’s not actually a solid 0% but decided to round to there, so keep that in mind.
