Snip--"And black drivers are also much more likely to be pulled over than whites, according to a review of 315,281 stops from 2009-2017 in Cincinnati, 128,157 in Columbus from 2012 through 2016, and 47,079 in Cleveland in 2016 and 2017. "


Snip--" Reporters compared police stops in census block groups that were at least 75% white and compared them to ones that were at least 75% African American. Highway stops were not included. Here are key findings:

In Cincinnati, police made 120% more total stops per resident in predominantly black areas.
In Columbus, police made 84% more total stops per resident in neighborhoods that were at least 75% black.
Cleveland issued 26% more tickets per resident in predominantly black areas.
Once ticketed or stopped, police arrested blacks at a much higher rate than whites. Blacks made up 74% of all Cincinnati stop arrests, 70% of all Cleveland arrests during ticketed stops and 59% of traffic stop arrests in Columbus.
Police pulled over African Americans at about the same high rate in a time-controlled sample of stops made either in daylight or darkness. This suggests they pull over drivers regardless of race. But more stops in minority neighborhoods suggests the location of patrols may be a factor in the racial disparities."


Snip--" Considering the racial makeup of Columbus, blacks were stopped at an 89.8% higher rate than whites."
