If these are the underpinnings of predictive policing, just dump it.

The reports from Tampa’s attempt were… not good

This is as dystopian as it gets. Cops came to their homes unannounced, day & night. They searched their houses without warrants & arrested them on petty violations. It's all part of a "predictive policing" model, & it's not working. My latest @reason: reason.com/2021/08/06/pasco-…

So racism/profiling is going digital then? Got it.

That first paragraph is something: “people are upset that cops are racist, but cops are upset that people noticed that they’re racist”

Yup. Just another obvious point as to why police need to be abolished.

Im not educated in statistics but this suggest that the statistical crime data itself is biased in a systemic way, not merely incomplete. If this is true how might one correct it and would this process then be worthwhile or is it wrong-headed in some structural way as well?

This sounds like an extension of the principles of the 2nd KC experiment. Which we can see how those findings got turned into wide sweeping policies that no longer took into account what the original experiments hypothesis was.

I like how we continue to just ignore how crime “is created”. Maybe build a job base. Maybe help with skills. Head start. Programs to help single mothers. Programs to mentor students. Help give them ways out besides drugs. You know. The things that actually help society 🤷🏼‍♂️
