The issue of racial profiling and police action has been a persistent problem. The misuse of Tasers and K-9 units has been a common occurrence. Recent research conducted by the National Library of Medicine revealed that out of 32,951 documented emergency department visits due to police dog bites from 2005 to 2013, 42 percent of those bitten were Black. It is crucial to educate law enforcement officers about this data and ensure the hiring of diverse, less biased police officers.
