Racial Profiling

Racial Profiling in Redding, California

Justice should be blind, but it isn’t always. California law defines racial profiling as “the practice of detaining a suspect based on a broad set of criteria which casts suspicion on an entire class of people without any individualized suspicion of the particular person being stopped.” Penal Code § 13519.4.

 

If you feel like you were targeted by police because of your race, color, or national origin, you may be entitled to a dismissal of your charges.
