San Jose Police to Record Race of Every Person They Stop, Question

CBS San Francisco, July 8, 2013

Police in San Jose will record the race of every person they stop and question on the street under a new policy that supporters say could finally determine whether officers are racially profiling.

By the end of the year, police will be following a new policy that requires them to record detailed information about so-called “curb sitting” detentions—whether or not an arrest is made.

Such information has long been required when officers stop people in cars.


The policy was announced two years ago but critics said it would be too burdensome. It was suspended by acting Chief Larry Esquivel while the regulations were retooled.

  • I’ll be dipped in horse manure. THIS is the San Jose Chief of Police. Larry Esquivel, another Affirmative Action hire.

  • But race doesn’t exist, it’s merely a social construct, and so on.

    Once the data are in, the results will be called “racist” unless the police stop people based on a quota system.

      “Sorry, we can’t arrest that murderer. We’ve already stopped our quota of Negroes for the day.”

      These pictures are not for the faint of heart. It keeps my blood boiling. It keeps me focused, makes me strong! When the crash comes (soon I hope), their will be justice.

      • Spartacus

        When the time comes, justice will be done. Make sure you’re ready.

    This can go either way. It all depends how they collect, report, and interpret the data.

    Will Hispanics be listed as white? Will the police be encouraged to maintain a racial/ethnic balance in their tracking causing real crime to be buried in petty white crimes?

  • DailyKenn

    Translation: White people should avoid San Jose to avoid being profiled to fit a racially balanced outcome.

    • Jefferson

      White people make up only 27 percent of San Jose’s population. That city has experienced major White flight.

  • Spartacus

    Glenn Beck is a shill, nothing else. Stop taking the MSM seriously, you’re just wasting your time.

    If anything good is gonna happen for the Afrikaaner, it’s gonna be done by us. Tell people about it, use pics like the ones I post here on Amren, try to donate money to any foundation or movement of the Afrikaaner if you can afford to. If you have a good financial situation, try helping Afrikaaner individuals or families to move to Europe or the US, or send money to Kleinfointein or Orania.

    But above all, make sure other whites KNOW what’s happening in South Africa, what the dark-skin animals are like, and what’ll happen to our own countries if we don’t wake up RIGHT NOW !

    Maybe even him.
