Meghan Hunt’s best suggestions toward mitigating this dynamic aren’t contingent on further officer training. The most obvious place to start is to compel officers to take their meal breaks. Instead of harassing and possibly killing someone in a low-blood-sugar-induced moment of racial panic, GO GET A BURRITO! Or meditate. Or whatever it takes to take the edge off. Racism prophylaxis, if you will.

I’m thinking 10 hour meal breaks could lead to a huge reduction in racist enforcement practices.
