Author, racial profiling consultant and police officer Shafiq Abdussabur said the events in Ferguson, Missouri, where an unarmed black teen was shot and killed, were the long-forming fruits of racial profiling.
“If all these incidents culminated from racial profiling, what are we doing to not lead up to those situations,” he said. “Because Michael Brown, after the fact, is a national disaster. That’s a racial stick of dynamite that went off.”
Community Engagement Editor Shahid Abdul-Karim, State Senator Gary Holder-Winfield, attorney Michael Jefferson and former Hartford Chief of Police Daryl K. Roberts take part in a conversation at the New Haven Register concerning a released study showing black drivers in Connecticut are stopped by police at a disproportionately higher rate than white drivers.
