In defending New York Citys controversial stop-and-frisk program, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Friday that local police officers disproportionately stop whites too much and minorities too little.
The comment, made by the mayor to radio host John Gambling during a Friday morning interview on WOR-NY, comes on the heels of a New York City Council decision earlier this week to create an independent inspector general to oversee the police departments practices amid allegations that law enforcement wrongfully targets blacks and Hispanics with its stop-and-frisk program.
Speaking on the air, the mayor dismissed the suggestion that the New York Police Department needs to have an auditor examine its stop-and-frisk program. In fact, Mr. Bloomberg defended the recently released statistics detailing the scope of the stop and frisk program and damned the notion that law enforcement is illegally singling in on minorities in the Big Apple.
One newspaper and one news service, they just keep saying oh its a disproportionate percentage of a particular ethnic group. That may be, but its not a disproportionate percentage of those who witnesses and victims describe as committing the [crime], Bloomberg said.
In that case, incidentally, I think we disproportionately stop whites too much and minorities too little. Its exactly the reverse of what theyre saying. I dont know where they went to school, but they certainly didnt take a math course. Or a logic course, Bloomberg added.

A few years back they pulled me over and pulled their guns on me and thought I was driving a stolen car. Somebody stole a car that looked like mine, then a few weeks later had me against the car accusing me of assault. Could have been BS excuses, but they do pull over whites. And traffic tickets? Foooorget it. I don’t even bother driving now unless absolutely necessary because you WILL get a ticket if you drive.

Killjoy is right about blacks and Latinos committing most of the crimes, but he is still a disgusting despicable little man.

Mayor Bloomin’ Idiot has some mighty thick kneepads
I don't think I'd be nearly as forgiving as he was about that.
Is it time for useful idiots to get lined against the wall?
