    It's fine.

    Frankly every major metro area should have this policy.



    It doesn't infringe on anything. It's fine.


    Heroin addicts think they're oppressed too. That doesn't mean they are.

    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 to disagree with them on the subject. Do they (or you) see this as a necessary evil to protect NY citizens, or do they (or you) not view this as evil at all? Can this even be classified as an "evil"?

    It blatantly violates the 4th amendment, it should be banned period. I don't give a **** if it stopped a handful of potential criminals.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    It's just another way for government to expand its power against the people and o mint or and database us better.

    Here is the deal.......

    The Republican Party is like your overbearing dad who wants to kick your ass when you don't do what he wants you to.

    The Democratic Party is like your overbearing mom who wants to love you and squeeze you to death.

    They are two sides of the same coin, and many Republicans and Democrats both like stop and frisk. It gives Republicans the power to kick your ass when they feel like it, and gives Democrats the power to squeeze you to death.

    How about a little parenticide of the political variety? Don't vote for Republicans or Democrats.

    Not having stop and frisk and giving people freedom is a necessary, um evil. Sure people will get away with things. That is the price of freedom.
    Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.

    I wouldn't chalk that up to multi-culturalism....

    Re: Is Stop-and-Frisk a Necessary Evil?

    Stop and Frisk is a violation of the 4th.......... I wouldn't necessarily agree that it is "racist" though. There is more to the profiling of a person to be stopped and frisked than JUST race alone.....
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    It's clearly a form of "papers please". Indiscriminate search and seizure without proper cause or warrant. I find it hard to believe anyone could support such tactics.
