Who Broke the Window? Black Guy or White Guy

This is the scenario:
  • A window is broken by a rock.
  • A police officer hears the window break, and sees to two men next to the window.
  • One is black, and has a rock in his hand.
  • The other is white, his hands are empty.

Who broke the window?

Who does the police officer arrest?



This fact pattern was an actual event, and was used in the Marines for training in human relations.
Think about it, and post your answers or thoughts below.
It is an interesting exercise........

Take them both in for questioning.

We don't know who broke the window, nor can we make an arrest with such circumstantial evidence.

Some scenarios:
  • White guy is innocent, black guy is guilty
    • Black guy threw one rock, ready to throw another.
  • White guy is guilty, black guy is innocent
    • White guy threw the rock, black guy picked it up.
  • White guy is guilty, black guy is guilty
    • White guy threw his rock, black guy is about to throw his, they're working together
  • White guy is innocent, black guy is innocent
    • Rock thrown from somewhere else, black guy picked it up.

No way to know, insufficient evidence.

It seemed to me they were testing to see who would use race as a reason for thinking someone was a criminal.
