Re: Bias in, bias out

Playing devil's advocate here...but if algorithms show that a certain postcode has an elevated amount of crime and that same postcode is majority black/polish/white/muslim/jewish/chinese then is it actually discriminatory to police those areas more (and by extension stop more black/polish/white/muslim/jewish/chinese under suspicion)?
