On the day that in to protest racial profiling, a published report said Hispanics and African-Americans are more likely than white motorists to receive a ticket if they are stopped by a police officer in Connecticut.
An article in the Hartford Courant that appeared on Saturday said an analysis by the newspaper of more than 100,000 traffic stops in dozens of different communities showed that blacks and Hispanics were two-to-three times more likely to receive tickets if stopped for the display or use of license plates.
Blacks were twice as likely and Hispanics four times as likely than whites to get a ticket when stopped for improper taillights.
Only about 200 people showed up Saturday for the unity march. An FBI investigation into claims that East Haven police treated Latinos unfairly resulted in the recent arrest of four police officers and the resignation of the police chief.
