Solution Preview

Hi and thank you for using BrainMass. The solution below should get you started. In this particular task, I have assumed that you needed help in translating the material you already have into a PowerPoint presentation - that is, using the given scenario. As you know, I cannot complete this task for you, although I can however guide you in completing it. I suggest making your presentation simple with each slide corresponding to what you need to complete. I suggest therefore using this outline:

1. Scenario - provide a summary - 100 words
2. The Social Issue - 100 words
3. Action plan: resources, acquisition, time limit, data, maintenance - 2 slides, 200 words or more
4. Monitoring Plan: staff, evaluation programs, implementation, targets - 2 slides, 200 words or more

As you can see, this is a simplified 6-slide presentation. It can be easily expanded however by making a more complex presentation by adding more information (i.e. data statistics), images and citing resources. M

Its growth over the decades has seen the town become increasingly multicultural, ethnically diverse (25% of its population is made up of races other than White) and complaints have been filed against racially discriminative practices by the police department over the years. Each time, the Internal Affairs of FPD would investigate and their investigation yielded results of no wrongdoing. A whistleblower however has managed to surface a tape wherein an FPD Officer, Tim Smith was shown making judgments based on race and doing so, acted in an aggressive and discriminative manner against one Antoine Jones who, being black, was profiled by Smith as a 'crack dealer' because Jones was driving a nice car. Jones was stopped, and while he complied with police requests underwent police brutality where Smith peppered sprayed him without provocation. The video evidence is contrary to what Smith claimed where he said Jones swung at him and he only acted in self defence.

Title: Racial Profiling
