New Jersey police targeted black and Latino neighborhoods to fulfill ticket quotas, officers say
“The repercussions are still being felt,” an officer said about people who were targeted and now have warrants, suspensions and have lost jobs.Terms of Service The department pointed to allegations of racial profiling which it had faced in October, after which an investigation by the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office discovered no criminal activity. It also cited a statement from Mayor Francis Womack III in response to the investigation. “To say that in the United States driver profiling, targeting or ticket quotas in police departments never happened or doesn't happen is disingenuous and would insult one’s intelligence,” Womack said. “When anyone suggests that it is happening in North Brunswick, the allegations are taken seriously. But police officers, who said the practice ended in 2018 after the Palisades Parkway Police Department came under heat for a similar arrest-based rewards program , said it had lasting damage. “The repercussions are still being felt,” said Mike Campbell, a veteran officer of the police department. “Some people still have warrants. Some are still paying summonses, some have experienced suspensions or they lost their job.” Najaer Brown, 24, told NBC New York he was issued a ticket over a seat belt initially, before it escalated over missing court dates. “I had got a warrant that I didn’t know about,” he said. “Just came back from school. Got pulled over, they locked me up.” His license was revoked shortly after. “I have a car — had a car. Can’t use it because I don’t have a license,” Brown said. Now, he added, his grandmother must drive him everywhere. Kesi Foster, a spokesperson for Communities United for Police Reform, told NBC News that the NBPD,"like too many police departments across the country, is threatening the safety of black and other communities of color by targeting them to fill quotas." “Reducing these communities down to numbers to fill a quota is inhumane and unacceptable," said Foster."We must remember that with every abusive police interaction, the consequences too often include humiliation, fear and brutality.” Read more: NBC News
There should be no ticket quota. Bastards JoshMankiewicz That’s been going on FOR-EVAH... It was easier than raising taxes again. Assholes now do the white neighborhoods and see how long they get away with it They been doing this in NYC forever. We get tickets for shit you never heard of before “improper tire air pressure” like wtf? You go to court and it’s 100% black people like we the only ones that go 5 over the limit but it’s only a crime when we do it.
Maybe they just suck at driving properly. There's no saving this country. It's rotten to the core.
