"Pretext" stops and racial profiling by local police
Linda Olson-Osterlund conducts a discussion with listeners on the use of "pretext" stops and racial profiling by local police. Pretext stops occur when police become suspicious about a car or its occupants, and then use a minor traffic infraction as an excuse to initiate a stop. This controversial law enforcement technique led to the fatal shooting of James Jahar Perez, an unarmed black motorist, killed by a Portland policeman in 2004.
