Hispanics are soft on crime: Continuing the theme of the liberalism of Hispanics, I wondered how they feel about the criminal justice system. Looking at GSS data, I've listed the percent who: 1) think that there are occasions when it is okay for a police officer to hit a suspect, and 2) think the courts are too harsh on criminals.
Percent who think that there are occasions when it is okay for a police officer to hit a suspect (N = 23,320)
All Americans 73.1
American Indian 71.9
Percent who think the courts are too harsh on criminals (N = 34,606)
American Indian 6.8
All Americans 5.5
As you can see, Mexican Americans resemble blacks in their toughness on criminals. Real conservatives, just like Tamar Jacoby tells us. Real law and order types.
