After talking with people leaving the Lemon Grove station following a Sheriff’s Department operation, all felt quite strongly that the reason they were stopped and harassed was that they were either a person of color, young, or both.

The sheriff uses data to track people it considers potential serious criminals, and initiates massive sweeps to try and catch them in the midst of an arrestable offense. In the process, thousands of residents are contacted by law enforcement just for being in a public place.
