    minorities more often. Mix in some trailer trash and liberal commie types... terrorist foreigners to apply zero tolerance to and hey... it's just being tough on crime! ...while better connected white people, richer white people walk for the small stuff.

    Racists hate being called out for being racially intolerant... but this way their intolerance can hide behind fear driven policies that can be used as weapons against those they do not like... very effectively too... a kinder, gentler more subtle form of racism... that is actually not kinder, gentler or more subtle... just deniable in a newer way.

    And for lazy fearful functionaries it is simpler too... just as clumsy and rigid as three strikes and blind mandatory sentencing... it is policy for the stupid and fearful... one size fits all, void of common sense or justice.
