Activists Call On Beverly Hills PD For 'Racial Profiling Prohibition' Ordinance

Posted: Updated:
Beverly Hills, CA -

(FOX 11 / CNS) A group of civil rights activists plans today to call on Beverly Hills to enact a "racial profiling prohibition" ordinance in response to the arrest of a black television and film producer. He was detained a week ago today for about six hours on suspicion of bank robbery before being cleared and released.

Earl Ofari Hutchinson is president of the Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable. He says civil rights organizations for years have gotten complaints that Beverly Hills police target black males for unwarranted stops, frisks and harassment.

Beverly Hills police Chief David Snowden says an internal investigation into the arrest of Charles Belk is underway.
