A golden opportunity

Any dis-proportionality in outcomes is proof of systemic racism. So, if law enforcement is going to use programming to do their job anyway, it's time to make sure the programming enforces equal sentencing outcomes for all races, regardless of any dis-proportionality in violation rates. Yes, this means whites will need to be incarcerated at rates higher than their proportional rate of infractions, but that's what we need to do to achieve a colour-blind society.
