The US is a nation of laws. Those individuals knew that when they broke some. Its not racist to enforce the law or expect everyone to obey it.

@curiosi That was a bad idea. There are 2 institutions that should never be privatized - prison systems and law enforcement.

@carpediem Maybe don't make laws that target minorities and stop the racial profiling.

@TheArbitrator that's BS. Don't break the law. Then you won't go to jail. The simple solution is the best one.
