Massachusetts State Police Issue Apology for “Racial Profiling Saves Lives” Bumper Sticker, But Not Before Lying About It

Massachusetts State Police issued an apology Monday for a bumper sticker on one of their police cruisers that read: “Racial Profiling Saves Lives,” but not before lying about it.

Boston resident Chris Kantos, was walking Sunday morning and came across on official police cruiser, number 1183, and noticed an odd bumper sticker on it.

Kantos tweeted this image out immediately.

Instead of apologizing immediately, Boston PD removed the sticker and published a second image of the cruiser with no bumper sticker. Then accused Kantos of photoshopping the image.

“Why on earth would I photoshop something like that?” Kantos asked on Twitter.

"When a nation becomes obsessed with the guns of war, it loses its social perspective…. There is something about a war like this that makes people insensitive. It dulls the conscience. It strengthens the forces of reaction, and it brings into being bitterness and hatred and violence."

- Martin Luther King Jr
Dr King was talking about the Vietnam War, but it applies today.

Dr. Martin Luther King reflecting on his “I have a dream” speech, the state of Africans in America, and the Vietnam War.

"I must confess that that dream that I had that day has at many points turned into a nightmare."

This is really important. That fighting for the right to sit at lunch counters and go to the same schools is (relatively) ‘easy’ cause it doesn’t cost the nation anything. Actual solutions to poverty and slums, that costs billions, that’s were the resistance really is.

Symbolic victories are important. But economic policy victories, as dull as that sounds, get to the heart of the problem.
