Attorneys file racial profiling lawsuit against Maryland State Police, say training documents contain examples of racial profiling about Hispanics
TOWSON, Md. (AP) ― Attorneys in a racial profiling lawsuit against the Maryland State Police say some training documents contain startling examples of racial stereotypes about Hispanics.
The documents were included in a court filing in Baltimore County Circuit Court.
For example, one document cautions that Hispanics generally do not hold their alcohol well. They tend to drink too much and this leads to fights. And it notes, Hispanic males are raised to be MACHO and brave, while females are raised to be subservient. Other sterotypes include the assertion that the weapon of choice for Hispanics is a knife and that Hispanics are reluctant to learn English.
Betty A. Stemley, the head attorney for the state police says the documents do not appear to have been part of the agency's formal training manual and there's no evidence they were ever presented to troopers.

BIG holds his liquor well. Doesn't bring a knife to a gun fight. Feels he has a mastery of the english language. Though he can be somewhat macho, he feels it isn't excessive.
Guess it's a good thing BIG is latino and not hispanic.
Subservient women, BIG knows quite few, from all ethnic groups, who do and don't fit that profile.Don't Be Afraid To Fail.

sounds like it's cultural awareness training to me. I don't see how any of the factual points listed show racial profiling.
"A strong man stands up for himself. A stronger man stands up for others."
The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
brought my rifle."
(just stole this one hope you don't mind)
The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant,
it is just that they know so much that isn't so.

I've heard that many Hispanics, especially Illegal aliens, don't trust banks, and instead carry and/or hide large amounts of cash. I've heard that especially illegal aliens have a tendency to use someone else's Identification in an attempt to pass as a legal resident alien or US citizen.
I've also heard that Hispanics often know more English than they care to admit, and that they also don't trust cops, because they are used to Mexican cops, so sometimes they will behave in a manor that Mexican cops expect of them, such as jumping out of their vehicle and running up to the police if they get pulled over, even offering cash to the police as a bribe. I've also heard that they distrust cops, doctors, paramedics and even firefighters, as they feel almost anyone in uniform will likely detain them and turn them into INS for deportation.
I've also heard that most illegal aliens maintain jobs on farms, construction sites, and janitorial/housekeeping jobs.
Now, is any of that racial profiling? Or more a matter of "Just the Facts"?Here Speeder, Speeder, Speeder

Sounds like how a lot of Asians don't use banks and are hesitant to call the cops because the police where they're from were so corrupt that they were more harm than help.
