New Jersey Racial Profiling

The New Jersey Attorney General has released state documents, detailing the use of racial profiling by state troopers there. Robert talks with David Kocieniewski, a reporter for the New York Times Trenton, New Jersey Bureau. He says the documents show thirty to fifty percent of the people stopped were minorities, and eighty percent of those who had their cars searched by troopers were minorities.
