    [The details of how political correctness rides roughshod over traffic enforcement, not only in New Jersey, but probably in every other blue state peeks out from around the edges of the rugs they were swept under.
    "Oh, you were killed in an accident on the Jersey Turnpike by a speeding driver that should have been stopped, but wasn't because of fears of profiling."
    "Oh! Too bad you were white, but that's why we require insurance in this nation of equals where some are more equal than others!"
    The scent of Eric Holder pervades everything. Sort of like the aroma you catch immediately after you pull the cover off a household septic tank thats been in heavy use recently. "The Honey Wagon Justice Department" ]

    "A racial profiling footnote

    The New Jersey Turnpike gave rise to much of the “driving while black” controversy of the 1990′s. That particular controversy was resolved by state authorities entering into a 1999 consent decree selling out law enforcement. Sentence first, verdict afterwards, as the Queen says in Alice in Wonderland. The verdict came too late to do any good, and it was kept under wraps when it arrived, but Heather Mac Donald blew the whistle on the whole production when she got hold of a serious study of driving patterns on the New Jersey Turnpike.

    The whole regime of “disparities” is premised on the simple falsehood that the various racial groups championed by the race industry behave identically to whites and Asians. It ain’t necessarily so. The traffic stops fiasco is a sort of reductio ad absurdum. In a 2002 New York Post column Mac Donald wrote about the study that disclosed the unspeakable truth:

    According to the study commissioned by the New Jersey Attorney General (and leaked to The New York Times), blacks make up 16 percent of the drivers on the turnpike, and 25 percent of the speeders in the 65-mph zones, where profiling complaints are most common.

    They speed twice as much as whites, and speed at reckless levels even more. Yet blacks are stopped less than their speeding behavior would predict — 23 percent of all stops."
