    Or should they have a more harmonised approach?

    Could you give reasons for your opinion.

    Let's say you have one rotten fence panel but the rest of your fence, besides needing a spot of paint here and there, is still structurally sound. Would you replace the entire fence or just the rotten panel?

    Depends what you mean by 'target'.

    If you mean should the police use things like racial profiling when trying to determine who is likely to commit/have committed a crime, then sure. If you've got intel on a suspected ISIS attack on, say, Heathrow airport, it is entirely sensible for the police to be focussing their efforts on any arab man who is acting suspicious, as they are the most likely demographic to be carrying out such an attack.

    Ban all young white men from schools and movie theatres

    (They already do to an extent tbh, I always get stopped and searched whenever at the airport. I always win bets with my white mates when I say I'll definitely get stopped and searched)

    Well on the one hand racial profilling is bad but if theres a vast discrepency in the crime figures it makes basic sense.
