Interview with author of the new book: PROFILES IN INJUSTICE: Why Racial Profiling Cannot Work David Harris explodes the commonly accepted beliefs about race and policing in Profiles In Injustice (The New Press), his new myth-busting investigation into the practice of racial profiling. Harris proves that the "common sense" idea of racial profiling does not help fight crime; in fact, racial profiling is poor policing, often illegal, and destructive to police and their communities. Balk Professor of Law and Values at the University of Toledo and Soros Senior Justice Fellow, Harris shows with staggering precision why and how racial profiling cannot help us keep the peace, stem the flow of drugs into our country, or prevent future terrorist attacks.
