    82% of hundreds of thousands of people being stopped, questioned, and searched.......being TOTALLY innocent....doesn't sound like a problem to you?

    if I was a black or Hispanic and lived in NYC, I would feel like I lived in a racist police-state.

    No it doesnt. Guilty or not they gave a police officer reason to believe they were doing something or reason to believe they had a weapon or something. If you dont want to be treated like a criminal dont act like one or portray yourself as one. Pretty simple concept if you ask me.

    if they were acting like a criminal, how come 82% of the time they were actually doing nothing wrong?

    maybe the NYPD needs to change their definition of "acting like a criminal" from "looking young, black/Hispanic, male", to something a little more intelligent.
