Poll: 49 Percent Say Races Receive Equal Treatment By Police

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A new poll says less than half of Maryland residents agree that people of all races receive equal treatment by the police in their communities.

The poll released Monday by Goucher College asked residents questions relating to policing in their communities and the Freddie Gray case in Baltimore.

The poll found 27 percent of black residents who responded agreed that people of all races receive equal police treatment. That compares to 60 percent of white respondents.

A curious poll, wondering which 636 residents were quizzed on this? What neighborhoods, the ones with a lot of police contact, or mine, where police contact is usually nonexistent to friendly?
