During interactions with the police, Blacks are twice as likely to be arrested as Whites, and almost four times as likely to experience the threat of use of force. The misuse of power by law enforcement officers and prosecutors sometimes results in racial profiling by the police, as well as the abuse of prosecutorial discretion.
