Portland Police Are Purging Gang Database Because There Aren't Enough White Gangs
Liberalism is a mental disorder.

Quote:Portland police will no longer maintain a database of suspected gang members, due to concerns that the vast majority of people with the gang label are racial minorities.

Starting Oct. 15, the Portland Police Bureau will end the 20-year practice of issuing gang member designations, which police say can lead to “unintended consequences” and a lifelong stigma even for those who have given up the gang lifestyle. Officials intend to notify the approximately 300 people on the gang list that the bureau will purge all records related to the designations, The Oregonian reported.

City officials and community activists had long urged the bureau to stop attaching the gang designation to criminal suspects, claiming the practice disproportionately impacted people of color.

When your politics don't match reality, just check out of reality.

Quote:Swedish police have been ordered not to release descriptions of crime suspects which include race or nationality to avoid being branded racist.

The memo makes it clear that the instruction has been handed down to avoid accusations of racism, telling officers: “The police are sometimes criticized for reporting on peoples’ skin color. We are perceived as racist. As the police are not racist, nor should be perceived as such, from now on, please apply these instructions.”

Why don't they reach out to the gangs to help them start diversity programs?

Good idea. Don't target the actual known criminals because you're worried about being labeled racists.

Cheers Portland.

Oh no 300 gang members out of a metro population of over 3 million will have something taken off their record.

It's called racial profiling and it's lazy police work.
