PostSubject: Idiots in Government: Gang database goes bye bye   Mon Sep 25, 2017 3:49 am

Activists who have been fighting against the use of predictive policing will be happy. At least the ones in Portland, Ore., will be. That city has taken the first step toward dismantling a system that frequently targets minority communities. 
Next month, police will stop labeling people gang members and gang associates. An Oregonian reporter investigated the practice — which police have been using for more than two decades — and found that of the 359 people in the database, 81% were minorities. More than 200 of those designated in the database were black.
What did it take to get on the list? Apparently not much. Police flagged gang members and affiliates more than 100 times a year — some of whom had never been convicted of a crime or arrested, according to an Oregonian report.
