Hillary Clinton to call for ban on racial profiling in Atlanta

Source: Atlanta Journal Constitution

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton will roll out new criminal justice reform policies in Atlanta on Friday as she tries to maximize her advantage with minority voters over Vermont U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Clinton is expected to endorse legislation that would ban racial profiling by law enforcement and eliminate the distinction between crack and powder cocaine in drug sentencing. They are part of a broader package that Clinton’s campaign plans to roll out over the next few days.

She will unveil the “African Americans for Hillary” group at Clark Atlanta University at 2:30 p.m. after a luncheon at the Hyatt Regency with the Rev. Jesse Jackson. It’s her first public campaign appearance in Atlanta this year, although she has visited for private fundraisers.

Her proposal would prohibit any law enforcement officer from relying on race when making routine stops or a “spontaneous investigative activity” unless there’s information linking the person to a crime, according to a campaign aide.

4. That headline makes it look like she's calling for Atlanta to stop profiling

 

Instead of appearing in Atlanta to reveal her plan to stop profiling everywhere.
