report says: Australian Police are racist

Aren't we already know that if you weren't born white, you would be likely be targeted by security guards, polices etc... The Australian reported that Police are racist targeting black youth (young Aborigines). A groundbreaking study by the Australian Institute of Criminology pointed out a disturbing picture of young Aborigines' contact with police. It may go some way to explaining why indigenous 10 to 17-year-olds are 28 times more likely to be in detention than non-indigenous youths.

In Western Australia, the one state that issued statistics on sentencing, young Aborigines are more than twice as likely as non-indigenous juveniles to be given a jail term after being found guilty.

The AIC study, "Juveniles' contact with the criminal justice system in Australia", finds that in NSW, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory, police are more likely to arrest and refer to court young Aborigines, compared with non-indigenous youths.
