Comic: Racial profiling

Smile ... you're under arrest!

U.S. District Judge Murray Snow ruled that Maricopa County Sheriff's Office deputies violated the constitutional rights of Hispanic drivers, and ordered the sheriff's office to cease using race in deciding whom to stop or detain.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio testified in the trial that he was opposed to racial profiling and denied that his deputies used race as a basis for enforcement decisions.

“The great weight of the evidence is that all types of saturation patrols at issue in this case incorporated race as a consideration into their operations.”
