    racial discrimination is randomization.  The "solution" to DWB is to throw more random stops into the mix.  Why do the cops interacting with OWS seems so vicious?  Because their viciousness is well-practiced. The larger populations they are having to deal with augments their behavior so it's harder to ignore.  Still, their supervisors try.  After all, in the culture of obedience, the cops obedience to their sergeants is rewarded by being able to exact obedience from "civilians."  Not to mention that beating up on protesters has proved risk free.  Regular "gangs" are likely to retaliate.
