What a surprise! Study: Minority youth more often in state courts than whites


Minority youth are more often arrested and in Washington state’s court system than their white counterparts, according to a recent study.
THE ANSWER IS SIMPLE BUT THE MEDIA NOR THIS NEWS STORY WILL ADDRESS IT - BLACKS COMMIT WAY MORE CRIMES THAN WHITES....PERIOD! WHAT IS SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND ABOUT THAT?


(WASHINGTON STATE REPORT) Minority youth are arrested and in the Washington state court system more often than their white counterparts, a recent study commissioned by the state Supreme Court shows. But researchers said that counties aren’t keeping complete data on ethnicity and that the gap between minority and white youth is larger.
Between 2007 and 2011, African-American youth were nearly 250 percent more likely to be referred to juvenile court for prosecution than their white counterparts. They are followed by Native-American youth, who are 80 percent more likely to be referred. Overall, minority youth are 22 percent more likely to be referred.
To determine the ratio, researchers calculated the number of minority youth in a particular aspect of juvenile law and the overall population of each county.
In arrests, minority youth were nearly 85 percent more likely to be arrested than white youth statewide, the study found. But researchers said that number is likely much higher because counties count Latinos as white in their record keeping. Latino is an ethnicity, not a race.
Sarah Veele, one of the researchers from the Washington State Center for Court Research, said there isn’t a federal or state requirement for local agencies to track ethnicity in their juvenile-arrest data, so Latinos are put in the “white” category.
Researchers looked at eight categories, ranging from arrests to diversion-program enrollments.
Still, about 40 percent of all cases were missing data on whether the youth was Latino and 5 percent of cases had no indicator of race or ethnicity.
“Increasing the quality of data collected by courts is key to fully understanding how and where racial and ethnic inequality arises,” Chief Justice Barbara Madsen said.
Once minority and white youth get to sentencing, the disparities begin to even out, Veele said, because judges usually follow sentencing guidelines.
“What we’re seeing is that the disparities are occurring earlier, such as arrests, referrals to juvenile court, and as you get deeper the outcomes are relatively comparable,” Veele said.
Veele said this particular study lacks other data points, including severity of charges and crimes as well as criminal history of the youth.
She is hoping this study prompts consideration of more complete record keeping among local agencies. The researchers released county-by-county data to inform local authorities of what they have and don’t have in their records.
To Enrique Gonzalez of the Seattle-based El Centro de la Raza, the findings echo something that he sees in his job. As a juvenile-justice advocate, he works with dozens of teens from Seattle, including many who have had brushes with the law. For him, by the time youth come in contact with police, it’s already late in the problem.
“The problem really starts early,” Gonzalez said. We need to look at “the link between juvenile justice, kids incarcerated and the achievement gap in schools. Most of the kids who end up in the juvenile system have some sort of contact with school discipline beforehand.”
Gonzalez said there is a bit of irony in the system, in that some programs for troubled youth don’t kick in unless a judge sentences them.
Veele said counties including Benton, Franklin, Spokane, Pierce and King have taken remedial steps, but many counties don’t have the resources.
Private organizations such as the Annie E. Casey Foundation and the MacArthur Foundation have provided money for studies and initiatives focused on alternatives to detention. The state also has chipped in.
Pierce County is one of the counties that has worked with the foundations. After examining its own data in 2003 and seeing disparities among African-American youth, the county began seeking remedies, including axing pricey one-on-one therapy programs that weren’t yielding results.
Now, Pierce County provides in-person visits to remind youth of court dates and transportation to court hearings if needed. They have also hired an African-American therapist who works with African-American youth exclusively.
“We don’t want kids languishing in our system, hanging in limbo waiting for sentencing,” said Shelly Maluo, Pierce County’s juvenile-court administrator. “The more they are in limbo, the greater the chance they reoffend or not show up to court.”
In Pierce County, African-American youth are 2½times more likely to be arrested.
Maluo acknowledges that more can be done to close the gaps.
But to Gonzalez, the data backs up what he hears from kids.
“They don’t feel they’re trusted or respected by law enforcement,” Gonzalez said. “An officer is more likely to arrest a student of color rather than ask questions and talk things out.”
A message to the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs, which provided the data on arrests, was not returned.

Reality be RAYCISS!

Who is this Enrique Gonzalez hump? We never even had any Mexicans in Seattle until about ten years ago, and they're already starting with their affirmative action social program shit, for which this Enrique Gonzalez faggot no doubt gets lots of white people's tax money to run. Fuck you, Enrique Gonzalez. Go back to Mexico and take your juvenile offender bitch boys with you.

Fucking wetbacks think they own everything.

There's a chain of taco shops here in Seattle called Taco Del Mar. It used to be a regular, ordinary restaurant where white college kids and high school kids worked. Then about five years ago I saw a Mexican manager at one of their locations. Within 18 months, every single shop was all illegal alien Mexican employees, most of whom can barely speak English. There's one near my house, every time I go past there at night I see the illegal alien manager cunt's gigantic, brand new Cadillac SUV parked out front. They don't even bother to keep it low profile anymore because they know nobody here will enforce iimmigration laws. Meanwhile, local kids now have one less source of employment, stolen by Mexicans. Fuck these criminal spic pieces of shit.

A survey revealed that while African-Americans constitute only 12% of the U.S. population, starting cornerbacks on ALL 32 NFL teams are black.

Next week, the survey will cover the NBA and NCAA track sprinters.

The survey has decided it will NOT include data on standardized IQ tests. No explanation was given.

One other thing you can glean from this is that minorities are expensive to those footing the bill. Taking care of Juan, Juanita, Latrine and Placenta costs $$$$$$$.

Diversity = drain on valuable tax dollars.

Growing up I was never taught that the cops ask quetions and talk things out if they suspect you of wrongdoing.
Why does everyone need special considerations again? Oh because of years and years of no consequences and no responsibilities.

I went to a shit school for a few years as a kid and I was for a white kid, a problem. After about 2 days with the the blacks, I realized they were much more violent than I was. White kids would bully other kids, you know, call names and maybe push the weaker kids around. The black kids would rob other kids. Maybe I was naive, but I was surprised just how violent these fuckers were and I realized at a young age there was no way I'd ever want to go to prison and live with these bastards. Two of these fuckers were arguing about some bitch and the 14 year old stabbed the other kid to death in school.

These liberals are going to do their best to somehow blame society for these little sociopaths bad behavior rather than come to the conclusion that bad people have bad kids and that a mother that had a child out of wedlock is not some sort of hero here. She's a promiscuous dummy that can't raise a family on her own, even if she doesn't have to do shit but raise her kids because she gets money without working.

Children do what their parents did, usually. Your parents own a business, you grow up thinking you are supposed to own a business. Your parents had a job, that's what you think people do. Your parents went to college, you go to college. Your daddy is an inmate, well hell, that's what men do. Your mother had a bunch of children without a job or husband, you think her daughters will be different?

And in other news it has been determined that gun crime in Illinois shows Blacks committing 85% of it yet legislators want to go after the White man as if he is responsible for all the murders in Black neighborhoods on the west and south sides of Chitcago. They have no impulse control in Black neighborhoods with the hoodrats that pack guns. Stop paying breeders for the chiluns and they may stop having so many and pay some attention to the ones they do have.

"A rigid system of selection through the elimination of those who are weak or unfit—in other words social failures—would solve the whole question in one hundred years, as well as enable us to get rid of the undesirables who crowd our jails, hospitals, and insane asylums. The individual himself can be nourished, educated and protected by the community during his lifetime, but the state through sterilization must see to it that his line stops with him, or else future generations will be cursed with an ever increasing load of misguided sentimentalism. This is a practical, merciful, and inevitable solution of the whole problem, and can be applied to an ever widening circle of social discards, beginning always with the criminal, the diseased, and the insane, and extending gradually to types which may be called weaklings rather than defectives, and perhaps ultimately to worthless race types."

So true. And the evil, rayciss white devil not only gets all the blame for blacks' psycho behavior, he gets to pay for them to pump out more kids, and then he gets to pay for all the trouble they cause. It's completely insane to say that we still owe them even more social benefits and special legislation and all the rest. I can't think of any other nation or culture in history where the people who built it and supported were forced to subsidize their own disenfranchisement and replacement. The founding fathers would have a stroke if they could see what has happened here.

Blacks are the worst scammers and weasels who have ever lived. Just as individual blacks will try to scam and rob you, the black race as a whole tries to scam and rob entire nations. If you look at what's been happening around the world for the past fifty years you can see that they've been very successful at it. And of course it still isn't anywhere near enough for them.

It isn't about equal rights and equity and diversity for them. It's about total power and domination without any of the responsibilities.

So true. For most black and latino ghetto kids, getting arrested is going to jail is now a rite of passage, like high school graduation or church confirmation or bar mitzvahs are for normal human people. Our society is falling apart, and the libtards are doubling down on the very things that are causing this trend in the first place, and then on top of that they've somehow convinced themselves that this rot and deterioration are "progressive" and "moving forward."

I used to think that people living during the collapse of the Roman Empire were fearful and despairing and wished that things could go back to the way they were. If the modern America is any indication, I see now that most of them were probably celebrating their downfall and thought it represented a form of progress.

Yes, the white man gets the blame for everything, when it's blacks and latinos who are doing terrible things and victimizing innocent people. Yet somehow blacks have managed to twist everything around and make everything our fault! It's completely insane. And then of course we get to pay for all of it while keeping our mouths shut and pretending not to notice all the crime and destruction and fraud they comitt, or else we're demonized as "rayciss." They get to have their cake and eat it, too, and all at our expense.

Eventually the entire pile of festering bullshit that is Black Run America will collapse under its own unsustainability and dysfunction. Unfortunately, a lot of good people will be hurt along with the pond scum. It's not going to be pretty.

Countless books have been written by social psychologists and eggheads attempting to explain the dysfunctional nature of Black America. You nailed it in a few sentences, kudos.

Can I simply just say what a comfort to find a person that truly knows what they're talking about on the internet. You actually realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people really need to look at this and understand this side of the story. I can't believe you are not more popular because you certainly
have the gift.
