Grinapol's topic comes straight out of today's headlines e trend for police and other authority figures to use racial profiling when investigating a crime or infraction. Her scope ranges from the school-to-prison pipeline, to zero-tolerance policies and stop-and-frisk, to what legal rights one has if arrested. Using facts and statistics, she describes how race and ethnicity influence arrests and sentencing, especially where drug laws are concerned. This installment in the Know Your Rights series covers a lot of ground in four chapters and provides a wealth of information through clearly written sentences. Sidebars amplify the text, and appealing photographs pack the pages. A glossary, a bibliography, and lists of organizations, websites, and further reading round out the book. This is a valuable and informative resource for any library that serves young adults.
