The Problem Only Exists if You Think It’s a Problem

Last Wednesday I was visiting legislators with a delegation from Rights Working Group to advocate for the End Racial Profiling Act.   According to the NPR report on the ERPA hearings, the Fraternal Order of Police is against the bill, with the president of FOP making the very funny statement that “This bill provides a solution to a problem that does not exist unless one believes the problem to be solved is that our nation’s law enforcement officers are patently racist… and that their universal training is based in practicing racism.”  Well, yeah.  I think that’s exactly what people think the problem is.
