TLDR: If you're black in the USA, & arrested for minor drug
offenses, the cop rolls one dice & lets you go if it's not a 6.
In the USA, we have a problem.
(If you're going to argue with me, I bet you'll start with the
"a" in the previous sentence, and I
Of course, "nobody's racist anymore", but yet we are locking
up black people for drug violations at 5-10x the rate we lock
up white people for the very same violations.
So, as long as we can't point to specific overt racist acts, and
as long as we have that huge disparity over millions of
people, we can correct for that as follows:
If the incarceration rate is 6x for your race, then you should
have a 5/6 chance of getting set free on arrest. Cop rolls one
dice. He can only arrest you if it comes up a 6.
If that helps balance society, & blacks are incarcerated at
only 3x the rate of whites, then cops need to roll a dice, &
only arrests you if it's a 4, 5, or 6.
Too random, you say? Perps can violate with impunity? Well,
all crime has a dice roll around it, wondering if, by chance,
they'd get caught.
(Only applies to non-violent crimes). (Might also apply to
thefts, if only we can figure out restitution to victims.)
