Even though 65.2% of people stopped by police were White, 77.6% of them believed the police acted properly. On the other hand, 12.4% of people stopped were African Americans. Only 37.7% of African Americans stopped believed the police behaved properly. 100% of Native Americans and 85% of Asians believed police acted properly.

Interestingly, the study referenced here notes that persons who were searched

during traffic stops were less likely than persons who were

not searched to believe the police behaved properly during

the stop. And whites were searched at lower rates than blacks and Hispanics. Searches may have bearing on each person's perception as to whether the police have acted properly.
