Should there be more diversity within law enforcement agencies?


In Ferguson, Missouri the Department of Justice found the following: 85% of traffic stops were African Americans 90% of citations issued were handed out to African Americans 93% of those arrested were African Americans There are 53 police officers in Ferguson, comprised of 50 white cops and only 3 black cops. However, the community is 67% African American. It's obvious to the most casual observer that this is not a fair and unbiased police department. How can this be rectified?
