    Terry Frisks are a useful tool of police. But NYPD is abusing that capability, and its going to turn around to bite ALL law enforcement in the ass when, eventually, there will be a legal challenge that will make it to the supreme court and Terry v. Ohio's decision will be overruled.

    NYPD needs to cool it, and use Terry Frisks as the exception rather than the norm.

    Its a statistical impossibility that they have "reasonable suspicion" of a crime in relation to EVERY one of the tens of thousands of terry frisks they conduct on a regular basis.

    Reasonable Suspicion is still a requirement to conduct a lawful Terry Frisk.
    "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.

    Making innocent people feel like criminals is bad policy.

    You can stop and search everyone. We call that a Police State. Let's try it for a few months and see how it works out.
