Polls show more than half of Americans believe racial profiling takes place during law enforcement actions, and even more disapprove of the practice. Vice President Gore has said it would be his number one civil rights priority. But law enforcement representatives say there’s no evidence to show it actually happens and argue that their methods are effective. A panel talks about racial profiling in the U.S. and about proposals to better understand the problem.

Guests

  • Ed Sarpolus vice president of Epic/MRA, a polling research firm
  • Rachel King legislative counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union
  • Johnny Hughes legislative liaison and director of government relations for the National Troopers' Coalition
