    Jacksonville’s enforcement of pedestrian violations raises concerns about another example of racial profiling: http://propub.li/2hCCBaE

    After watching a viral video of a Jacksonville cop stopping a young black man for jaywalking, reporters Ben Conarck and Topher Sanders examine how “walking while black” can come at a high price. In this second piece of the Vox + ProPublica collaboration, they dig into how police citations for pedestrian violations often fall along the lines of race and poverty, and introduce us to some of the people fighting these tickets.

    Check out the full ProPublica/Florida Times-Union piece at http://propub.li/2hCCBaE for their in-depth reporting, and stay tuned for more stories in this collaboration! If you'd like to sign up to receive more ProPublica journalism, go here: http://propub.li/2hwf4V9
