Racial Profiling Alleged in Alamance County, North Carolina

"[T]he U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is investigating the Alamance County Sheriff's Office over allegations that it targets Latinos in traffic stops and checkpoints.  The data supports the concerns: Compiled and analyzed by the Indy, traffic stop records show that Latino drivers are twice as likely as non-Latinos to face arrest during traffic stops by Alamance County deputies." – Billy Ball, Aug. 14, 2012.
