Barbara Hall & The HRTO Just Made Life Easier For The Next Christopher Husbands

$40,000 awarded in racial profiling case

"I do not believe that if the suspect had been a Caucasian man in the same circumstance, with no other defining characteristics, particularly age…[that the officer]… would have chosen to investigate the first Caucasian man he saw driving the same car at the same intersection. It is consistent with a finding of racial profiling that all black men, or all black men of a certain age, driving along in the area in a black car were possible suspects at the moment that Officer Baker decided to commence his investigation of Mr. Maynard."

Yup that'll help.

Sutton's Law: The law is named after the bank robber Willie Sutton, who reputedly replied to a reporter's inquiry as to why he robbed banks by saying "because that's where the money is."
