While our side stunting for votes in the next election cycle, their side is changing the rules to impact how law enforcement is viewed in traffic stop reports,
“As he prepares to succeed Josh Hawley as Missouri’s attorney general, Eric Schmitt is considering changes to a report his agency produces aimed at tracking racial profiling in vehicle stops.
The report, which is issued annually, tracks whether local police departments disproportionately pull over minority motorists. One of the issues is that there’s no way to prove, for example, if lots of African-American motorists drive through a predominantly white town — which could impact how a law-enforcement agency is viewed in the report.
Before he was elected treasurer, Schmitt was the sponsor of municipal overhaul legislation that lowered the percentage of fine revenue cities could keep in their budgets. While some of the provisions in that bill, known as Senate Bill 5, were thrown out in court, the legislation is considered one of the most substantive policy responses to the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson.”
