ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's perspectives on the role of race on the criminal justice system in the U.S. He mentions that people start to understand how citizens that police are supposed in protecting look more like marks that are empowered to shake down when people add into the mix of federally and noxious driven practice of civil asset forfeiture. He states that racial profiling does not depict a deliberate police policy to direct extra law enforcement at persons based on skin pigment.
