Racial Profiling Lawyers

Reliable & Caring Legal Defense in CA

Racial profiling is defined as “the practice of detaining a suspect based on a broad set of criteria which casts suspicion on an entire class of people without any individualized suspicion of the particular person being stopped.” In other words, it occurs when a law enforcement official targets someone and assumes that person is more likely to be involved in criminal activity based solely on his or her race, nationality, or ethnicity.

If you believe that you have been racially profiled and your rights have been violated, contact a civil rights defense attorney from Second Chances Law Groupat (626) 827-7222 for a free consultation.

Understanding the Types of Racial Profiling

The American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California conducted an extensive study of this issue and found substantial racial disparities in the rates Los Angelenos are stopped, frisked, searched, and arrested by the Los Angeles Police Department. The report concluded that those disparities are not explained by differing crime rates in predominantly black or Latino neighborhoods or the likelihood that a search of a person of color will yield evidence of crime.

Racial profiling can occur in a number of circumstances, including:

  • Traffic stops
  • Car searches
  • Pedestrian stops
  • Stop and frisks
  • Arrests
