6. What the cop in the article was doing get repeated over and over for other things.

For example, here in Florida having Pot without a Medical Marijuana prescription is a felony. Black and Brown kids get arrested out of proportion to White kids, so the POC kids get the first line on a rapsheet. There are a few exception, if the kid is a high caliber ball player, he likely will get end up having someone in the system get him off or get charged reduced to something less than a felony. The Pot law here is stupid, that is why if Legal Pot is on the November ballot, I will vote for it, even though I prefer decriminalization, it is just that if the choice is between legalization and what we have now, in my mind legalization will win every time. There are other chicken-crap things that cops do, like citing a Black or Brown kid until the family can’t pay the fines or the kid fails to appear in Court - that leads to a warrant for arrest, so then a kid shows up as “wanted” if stopped by a cop.
