Sorry, Michael. What is it about “probable cause” that you don’t understand? This is NOT a police state in which innocent citizens have to justify their existence to a bunch of goons. Tyranny makes me safer only at the cost of my liberty.
Most of the victims of black crime are fellow blacks - people working for a living. People who are afraid to ‘snitch’... They want the thugs off the streets more than we do...
Bye bye Constitution. It was nice knowing you. Stop and frisk: It’s for the children!
Think of the good we could do and how much safer we'd all be if we just did away with the Constitution all together!
These tactics may do some good, but also look like some of what the Constitution was written to protect us from.
I don't think DUI checkpoints are legal, either. Same for random drug testing.
And don't get me started on the TSA pat down and grope.
So how many of you live in Detroit?
The hypocrisy of FReepers cracks me up sometimes. Throw a tantrum about the fact that the TSA gives granny a rectal exam to avoid profiling muslims and then turn right around and pretend to be concerned about racial profiling.
Don’t like it, don’t live in those places.
Democrats want to keep minorities poor and dependent on government. Keeping their crime rate high helps to achieve their goal.
Always beware of government officials who maintain that violating your rights is for your own good.
A much better bet would be for a NY gun liberty act, followed with the NYPD organizing honest minority citizens to be safely armed, individually and as armed neighborhood watch groups.
Heck, even if they issued them Tasers and cheap, $10 stun guns, it would have a huge impact against crime.
“Those who decry stop and frisk as racially discriminatory should remember who is hurt most by violent crime — law-abiding residents of high-crime neighborhoods, most of them black and Hispanic, people like Hadiya Pendleton.”
At what point will you determine the Danube has been crossed and the citizens overwhelmed?
“Stop and frisk” is still a violation of the 4th amendment
