First how many judges are actually relying on this algorithm COMPAS. Probably not too many. I suspect the team leader at ProPublica knows very well. The data in question needs to be analyzed by an objective third party. From the viewpoint of one that has spent twenty-five years inside the criminal justice system monitoring the courts and making mental note on sentencing, what you call minorities, blacks, aboriginal offenders, etc., usually receive less time in prison than do those categorized white. If you wish to image it the other way around. All the officers of the court have been programmed by racist algorithms in law school. The spirit of discernment in dispensing justice is staved by FEAR
Bull shi”. An algorithm for the protection of minorities when judges are going to spew out the best of all considerations for minority committed crimes. What a left winded thinker can come up with is fricking unbelievable. Hell, what 21st century bench warmer is going to rely on an algorithm to decide any case when they can design case law as they deem necessary. Ha
