Baltimore, MD (AP) – The numbers in the Justice Department’s scathing report on the Baltimore Police Department are startling, showing that officers often make stops with dubious justification, sometimes targeting the same people in mostly poor, black neighborhoods. Here’s a closer look at the figures:
410 – Number of people stopped at least 10 times from 2010-15. At least 95 percent were black.
34 – Number of black residents stopped at least 20 times during 2010-15.
30 – Number of times one black man was stopped in less than four years. None of the stops resulted in charges.
7 – Number of African-Americans who were stopped 30 times or more from 2010-15.
0 – The number of people of any race other than black that were stopped more than 12 times.
