From NPR’s WBEZ in Chicago:
Activists: Gang Database Disproportionately Targets Young Men Of ColorObviously, The Law of Self-Evident Equality proves that Chicago must have many uncounted white gang-members, such as, well … Al Capone, Sam Giancana, Ferris Bueller, Joe Pesci and the other burglar in Home Alone, and Heath Ledger’s The Joker.

… Activists in Chicago claim these gang databases are doing more harm than good. Over time, Chicago’s list has grown to include almost 65,000 people whom the police consider gang-affiliated. More than 95 percent are African-American or Latino, and young activists say police are irresponsibly and disproportionately labeling young men of color as gang members. Immigrants, in particular, say the city’s list is full of errors and leading to some deportations.
