Re: Bias in, bias out @tiggity

Dross AC

I used to live in a very rough area.

I reported (at night) a burglary occurring on the street

Police asked fr my location .. then said they do not come to that area after dark unless there is risk to life

.. So, in that area free pass for "low level" (i.e. property crime with a low risk of person getting killed / injured) crime, rather than police actively targeting the crims they were just writing off an area as a high rate of property crime cess pit.

So, did not report any further property crimes on that street.

Area was predominately non white, but all the burglars and car jackers I saw were white in the time I lived there, so cannot assume inhabitant demographic is equivalent to criminal demographic.

Unsurprisingly I moved to a different area
