An Empirical Assessment of Pretextual Stops and Racial Profiling
Professor Stephen Rushin, of Loyola University Chicago School of Law, presented his work An Empirical Assessment of Pretextual Stops and Racial Profiling. This work empirically illustrates that legal doctrines permitting police officers to engage in pretextual traffic stops may contribute to a statistically significant increase in racial profiling.
