New “racially motivated 911” law in Oregon may backfire 

Last week, the state of Oregon successfully passed legislation to make illegal “racially motivated 911 calls.” Bill 3216 entitles victims to sue the 911 caller for up to $250 if they can demonstrate that the call was racially motivated and intended to discriminate against them.

Other than the obvious point that frivolous 911 calls are already illegal and can provide action for both criminal and civil suits, the question on my mind while reading through the bill inevitably became: How does one demonstrate a call against an individual who happened to be a person of colour was not racially motivated?
