    Stop-and-Frisk is unconstitutional and an excuse to racially profile other black people in NYC, however through that same policy the police have successfully achieved the greatest gun bust in NYC history. This will certainly be used when Bloomberg and Kelly appeal the recent ruling on this policy. Do they see this as a necessary evil to protect NY citizens? Or do they not view it as evil at all?

    When you read passages like:

    "When 3 white cops tell a black teenager that he looks out of place in a Hispanic neighborhood, where he lives, something has gone horribly wrong."

    It's easy and (rightful) to disagree with them on the subject. I'm against stop-and-frisk 100%, if any of you care.

    That bust was due to some idiot rappers instagram, not stop and frisk as you falsely imply.

    Stop and frisk is unessecary and antagonistic and now our illegal 3 term mayor wants to make it law that everyone in the projects must be fingerprinted, young and old which should tell us that stop and frisk is not turning in the quotas that they had hoped for.

    Some of the biggest dope users work on Wall Street. Why aren't they profiled? Because white junkies don't commit crimes to keep their habit going? Apply it equally, then talk

    There is soooo much going on this website I forget to make "notes." :lol:

    At any rate, it has been determined that Stop & Frisk has found more weapons on the infinitely fewer whites stopped for going about their daily business than on the exponentially MORE blacks &/or Hispanics so inconvenienced.

    I knew there was something else, something "important" that I wanted to say....

    I was watching (I think) Frontline, a news magazine on PBS. They interviewed 2 of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit - one black, one Hispanic. It was then that I got a sock in the gut understanding of what's going on with NY's stop & frisk. I'd thought that every once in a while some black or Hispanic would be stopped randomly, frisked and let go. No, the Hispanic guy (a "white" Hispanic) said that he was stopped upwards of 3 times in one day... and on multiple occasions. The black guy said he had been stopped and frisked more times in the past year than he could remember (think he eventually said something like a thousand times).

    Another "revelation": They showed a clip of NYC cops 'stopping and frisking" some black guys, (looking 'suspicious?') sitting on a bench. I was appalled when it showed the cops ordering the boys to lie face-down on the pavement while they went through their pockets! I'm thinking - this happens 3 or more times in one day!? Clothes get messy, if not dirty, day/life totally interrupted.... Oh! And no weapons found.

    Another Major Victory In The Fight Against Stop And Frisk
    The Huffington Post | By Inae Oh

    ASSOCIATED PRESS


    A New York state judge has upheld a law making it easier for citizens to sue police officers performing unlawful stop and frisks based on race.
    "This law provides an important opportunity for New Yorkers who are subject to racial profiling or other discriminatory behavior the opportunity to vindicate their rights," State Supreme Court Justice Anil Singh wrote in her decision Wednesday.
    “The law only seeks to deter the use of attributes such as race as the sole basis for an investigatory stop which is antithetical to our constitution and our values,” Singh added.
    The Community Safety Act was passed shortly after a federal judge ruled in August that police in New York City had violated the rights of residents and illegally stopped a disproportionate number of blacks and Latinos.
    Since the law's passage, city unions and police groups have attempted to block its implementation on the grounds it could jeopardize officers' abilities to perform their duties.
    "We strongly disagree with the judge’s decision and we intend to appeal it," Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, wrote in a statement Wednesday. "This law sends an extremely bad message to our police officers who will see themselves in legal crosshairs with every arrest they make. Potentially, this bad law can have a very serious impact on public safety."
    New York Civil Liberties Union executive director Donna Lieberman dismissed that notion on Wednesday, saying the law will help mend community relations soured by the unprecedented rise of stop and frisks seen under previous New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg.
    "This decision is a victory for all New Yorkers, including the police because it builds trust and respect between officers and the communities they serve," Lieberman said.
    The latest development also marks the continued unraveling of the controversial policing tactic, staunchly supported by Bloomberg. Following Judge Shira Scheindlin's ruling last August, Bloomberg lead a city appeal to reverse the decision, arguing stop and frisk was a necessary crime-fighting program to keep New Yorkers safe.
    In February, Mayor Bill de Blasio dropped the appeal, as he pledged to do last year while campaigning for office.

    its not even about committing crimes for ones habit, most of the "reduction" in crime is due to the boars finding small amounts of Marijuana on teenagers.
