This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

As the LAPD disproportionately policed the poorer Black areas because of poorer living conditions that surrounded the Blacks and made crime more likely, Blacks took notice to the unfair amount of policing they were receiving in comparison to their white counterparts; this exchange created a dangerous feedback loo. LAPD culture assumed crime would take place in the Black communities more than the white, because the circumstances and living conditions were poorer. As the Blacks were being policed unfairly due to sociological conditions that had been pressed upon them--dating way back to the Federal Housing Act of 1934-- the injustice of the LAPD’s treatment towards them eventually perpetuated anger and a desire for fairness, leading the Black community to direct backlash towards the LAPD. The LAPD responded by either pulling out of the Black communities to let crime perpetuate further, or using the Black backlash and manifested frustration as justification for heavier policing.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
