Virginia Task Force Drops Gang Database After Complaints It Has Too Many Minorities In It

A tolerant country needs tolerant databases

The Northern Virginia Regional Gang Task Force would stop using the GangNet database that catalogs thousands of gang members and gang-affiliated persons in the DC Metropolitan area over complaints that the database includes a ‘disproportionate number of minorities’.

According to the Washington Post, it will be the first law enforcement entity in the area that would stop using GangNet.

The database is widely used by more than 120 law enforcement agencies in the greater Washington, DC area that includes densely populated counties in both Maryland and Virginia. GangNet had been in use for about 10 years and has about 7,800 gang members in its database.

The database is used for intelligence purposes and can’t be used for the basis of probable cause to arrest someone. Nonetheless, collecting the data about any crimes that may involve the ‘disproportional number of minorities’ appeared to be too much for the new neo-liberal era in the US. It may soon appear that the entire concept of the ‘ethnic crime’ can appear to be banned in the US because it is not enough tolerant….[   ]

They forgot to add the FBI, IRS, CIA and NSA to the gang database.

Watch your grandmother get robbed repeatedly by peaceful black folks when you are ten years old. Hardens you up quick.

It’s like rebelling against gravity and jumping off tall buildings in protest.

I suppose this means minorities cannot commit crimes by a priori definition.
So if a minority gang member shoots a liberal it is not a crime and the lefty will not report it…..or label it as a conservative.

Reality is often disappointing for those who refuse to live in it. They just decided to live in an imaginary reality instead.

This is as dumb as Sweden trying to educate native-born Swedish men to stop raping so much instead of looking at who is actually committing the crimes.

Pretty soon there will be a rush to the border by those that have come here over the last 30 years as crime and decay in their US neighborhoods becomes worse than what they escaped from.

Surprised it took this long… how long before the FBI and other LEO’s purposely stop reporting “hate facts”?

Maybe this would work with cancer, too: pretend there’s no disease, and POOF!

Besides, they’re not a minority – they’re a majority of violent criminals.

No problem. Biden will just issue another Executive Order mandating that toxic white male supremacists who are doctors, engineers, etc. be included in the list in the name of ‘wokeness’
