“The effectiveness of this police practice, initiated by Mayor Rudy Giuliani in 1994 and continued by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, is not in doubt. The number of homicides — the most accurately measured crime — in New York fell from a peak of 2,605 in 1990 to 952 in 2001, Giuliani’s last year in office, to just 414 in 2012.”.......

If it isn’t broke, why fix it”? If there is nothing to hide (weapons in this case) then I’d suggest the “Stop and Frisk” is a GOOD thing. I’ll bet those who have been mugged would support it.

NY is not YET Detroit until they have complete black leadership in control.

Detroit's 1990 criminal homicides amounted to 595 cases, whereas its 2011 number was 344. On a per capita basis, the murder rate dropped from 58 cases per 100K population to 48 cases per 100K population. NYC's number went from 31 cases per 100K population in 1990 to 6 cases per 100K population in 2011.

Gun control was a “good thing” as long as it was only applied to minorities.

That’s how it was in the South, post-reconstruction.

I will never welcome being stopped by the police and frisked. Its unconstitutional and free people shouldn't tolerate it. I most certainly don't want my wife and daughters being stopped and groped.

Its a finger in the dike approach to a vast cultural problem.

Then why have a requirement for search warrants at all?

I agree 100%. There’s absolutely no reason anyone should have ANY rights as long as it gives us a sense of security.

Progov - it’s bad form to post private replies that are on-topic to public posts.

“Apparently we don’t all agree. (see below message someone sent me and my response to him was, “Apparently you haven’t been mugged YET”).

My previous response to you in post 16 was sarcasm to the max. Apparently you missed that.

I agree with SampleMan.
