How is it that Shotspotter is racist?

Why are local government leaders so hellbent on terminating Shotspotter? It works!

Critics of the ShotSpotter system insist that it is inaccurate and ineffective. Some say it is racist. Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx claimed that ShotSpotter does not contribute significantly to firearms-related prosecutions in the city.

the first Cook County State's Attorney that has not contributed significantly to firearms-related prosecutions

Our team reads hundreds of Chicago police reports every week. We can say with certainty that ShotSpotter alerts routinely result in the arrests of armed men—and they’re almost always men—after shots are fired in the city. This series includes cases we happened to come across during our work. It is not an exhaustive list of every ShotSpotter case.

    It's of course racist because it accurately only identified black shooters...there of corse being NO shooters from other demographics.

  3. They want it gone because same as always "po little din-du-nuffins" are going to jail then prison for the crime they committed not for "being colored/black". I did a long stretch in a state prison now coming to 45 years ago and believe me the blacks were BY FAR the majority of the population and every single one of them belonged there.
