This paper discusses from a positive and negative standpoint the use of racial profiling by the police. The author feels that lack of training among the police officials and their inability to practice criminal profiling correctly results in the abusive practice of racial profiling. The author presents a research proposal for a study which asks: Why and how many innocent and peaceful citizens were unjustifiably arrested just because they belonged to a specific minority group?
From the Paper:"It is interesting to note that some of the social experts favor the practice of racial profiling, claiming that the racially biased policing efforts are helpful in identifying the criminals, as they work in the form of groups belonging to same ethnic or racial group. They argue that the arrests and searches of individuals from a specific ethnic group or race are due to their own inappropriate behaviors. They totally reject the notion that racial profiling is another form of racial discrimination by the law enforcement officials. According to them, it is one of the most effective tools to identify the criminals and it has proved its effectiveness in the past."
