Persons of color are strictly profiled. Be aware. White legislators belonging to American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) were greased by the Koch Brothers in 1999: From Edwin Bender at Follow the Money:
"The busiest Task Force was Criminal Justice, which had 199 bills introduced. The anti-crime legislation with the most enactments was the Truth in Sentencing Act (inmates serve at least 85 percent of their sentence), which became law in 25 states." Those states were Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia and Wyoming.Per capita, the state incarcerates more non-white men than nearly any other in the US...but it's not enough: now cops are getting more weapons to harass and arrest people of color turning economic refugees into felons.
From the RCJ:
The South Dakota Highway Patrol will receive $212,500 from the state’s Drug Control Fund to assist in drug-control operations. The money will be used for weapon upgrades, service-dog equipment and additional equipment, according to Attorney General Marty Jackley. Jackley said the patrol contributes substantially to the drug-control fund.South Dakota is still fighting the Battle of Wounded Knee.
