Targets Blacks and Latinos exclusively
7 May 2014 | by (Hayward CA) – See all my reviews

It goes like this: Assemble your team of cops, take your team and your Bait Car to an area as heavily Black and/or Latino as you can find, drop the car off while making it as obvious as possible that it's unlocked and the keys are in it, and wait for the dumb-ass. Once in a great while that dumb-ass will be other than Black or Latino, but it's obvious that AREAS that are primarily Black and/or Latino is the overriding prerequisite for deciding where to drop the car. You'll watch the featured city's PD "set up" in supposedly "where the car thefts are most-often occurring", but almost never include (for the show,at least) an operation in any high-theft area that ISN'T populated primarily by Blacks and/or Latinos. The show appears to be trying to advance the premise that us White folks aren't committing these crimes as much, by as much as possible avoiding placing the bait where us White folks could see it.
