(Newser) The NYPD detained the equivalent of 8.6% of all New Yorkers as part of its controversial "stop and frisk" program in 2011, and almost all of them were minorities, according to a statistical breakdown the department released last night. All told, police stopped a record 685,724 people, and nearly 90% of them were either black or Hispanic, the New York Post reports. Only 9% were white and 4% Asian. In many places, the racial disparity was even worse. In the two precincts that saw the most stops, Brooklyn's 75th and 73rd, 97% and 98% of cases, respectively, involved blacks or Hispanics.
A white person “wandering” into a non-white neighborhood, 98% of the time, is looking to buy drugs.
That’s as true as “anyone out after 1AM is up to no good.”
But cops and prosecutors like to encourage this belief among jurors.
There is absolutely nothing on God’s green Earth worth going to New York City for. I’ve been twice, two times too many.
Where do they get these figures.
Do the police have to make out a report each time they stop someone, and in that report have to state the race of who they searched?
So has abortion.
And so has involuntary "commerce" via obamacare.
The only thing that will restore the Constitution and our Freedoms is a revolution. The elite in D.C. can "rule" that the sky is Stewart plaid, but that doesn't make it so.
New York City, 2010
28.6% - Persons of Hispanic or Latino origin
33.3% - White persons not Hispanic
And Obama's city, Chicago, doesn't. Which is the reason (not "gun-control") for the difference between the murder rate in Chicago and New York City!
But, like all politically incorrect truths, this one has no place in the leftwing media driven debate.
have you ever been to NYC? Walk through mid-town and maybe 40% of the people are white, at most.
I used to have a high profile customer there, and thought the money was worth it.
No longer have that customer and I’m much happier.
Bob Dylan wandered into a neighborhood where white people were scarce (this in the 21st century) and was stopped and probed with questions about what he was up to (he was not recognized).
Sounds like he was targeted BECAUSE he was white.
Daytona Beach Fl?? taking a walk before a show..
Not really, You can bet your last dollar, much of it was repeats of the the usual suspects and/or gang members - many known to be past offenders - up to the same shit at the same times and places as before.
The 22-year-old officer was dispatched after residents in the New Jersey town of Long Branch had phoned to complain that a man in the Latin quarter was acting suspiciously.
It was in New Jersey, when he took a walk near one of his concert venues in a black neighborhood, where whites are profiled as drug buyers.
A blatant example that PC kills.
All true. The cops also falsely charged him with other things too. Big mess all around. I avoid cities like the plague.
Yes indeed, I would not think of going there, nor to any of the other state hellholes (Massachusetts, Maryland, Delaware, etc.). If a state does not recognize my rights as a citizen, then to hell with it. They can get their revenue from other sources.
I encourage people to boycott MA. They don’t recognize out of state licences to buy beer and such here. If you’re under 40 and they card you they have the right to refuse you. It’s crazy.
