Blacks/Hispanics Stopped/Searched More but Whites Get Charged More Often

According to this Boston Globe story, blacks and Hispanics are more likely to be searched, whites are more likely than any other racial group to face drug charges following a search - supporting a claim by minorities that they are searched with less reason. How did they research this? Nearly two years after the state began collecting information on traffic citations to measure possible racial profiling by police, the Boston Globe analyzed more than 750,000 tickets, from every police department in the state.
