HOW THE LAPD AND PALANTIR USE DATA TO JUSTIFY RACIST POLICING

January 30 2021

In a new book, a sociologist who spent months embedded with the LAPD details how data-driven policing techwashes bias.

In order to get a reduction in crime in one division, police concluded that they had to fly helicopters overhead 51 times per week. They often increased that to 80 to 90 flyovers for good measure, meaning that many residents’ days were regularly interrupted by the noise of buzzing choppers. The cops seemed to register the intrusion. They dubbed the copters “ghetto birds.”
