A point of interest. The “Veil of Darkness methodology” requires comparison of police conduct during the day with that at night. It is based on the ridiculous assumption that race is not discernable at night (or less so) and accordingly stop activity would be different. It is nonsense because you can see and because the cops eventually do see who they have stopped.
Anyway, stop activity here is essentially the same night or day, but what is different is post-stop activity. I give you one example Citations.
Cops ticket people less at night; but they relent less when it comes to ticketing Blacks (down 10.9 vs >15.00 avg for others). I am not surprised. ~ Richard Hylton
