NYT : “ Whites not contributing their fair share of crimes”
“What difference, at this point, does it make?”
They don’t dare tell us the crime rate and descriptions of criminals in the Pcts.
“(98% of those stopped were minorities”
You mean, whites were stopped the most?
How many had contraband?
How many had prior arrest records?
How many convictions resulted from the frisking?
Was the crime rate in the targeted neighborhoods significantly reduced?
A smart robber robs banks because that is where there is money.
Stay the hell out of NYC. A friend of mine got arrested for carrying a small pocket knife there. Yes, you read that right.
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.
The assumption is that it is racist whites doing the frisking of minorities. NYPD is 20% black and 33% Latino. Whites are a minority in NYPD. And, as we all know, minorities cannot be guilty of racism against any race.
It was probably more like 1-2% because there is a hardcore group of several thousand gangbangers/drugdealers who probably get stopped and frisked several times a month.
I hope that sexism doesn’t play a part.
New York City, 2010
28.6% - Persons of Hispanic or Latino origin
33.3% - White persons not Hispanic
have you ever been to NYC? Walk through mid-town and maybe 40% of the people are white, at most.
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.
