    The mayor played politics with their lives. Not surprised, it will probably hit the city hall where it hurts-in the pocketbook.

    Then why are you making the claim?

    Either you have the data to back up what you're saying, or you don't. And no, it shouldn't be hard to nail down these stats, at least not in medium-sized cities. Many use CompStat or similar systems, many who do publish the data.



    Actually, what happens in NYC is that people get stopped for minor violations, it escalates, and the police nail them for resisting arrest. (There are also indications that cops lie, sometimes brazenly, about the alleged resistance.) I'm certainly not aware of any indications that violent felons routinely get popped for small infractions in NYC, hence my expressions of skepticism and request for actual evidence for said claims.

    And to reiterate my point above: NYC definitely uses CompStat, and publishes the data. If they are nabbing violent felons who have open warrants during stops for minor violations, there should be no question that will show up in the data. They certainly weren't catching violent felons with active warrants with stop & frisk.

    What the....?

    Are you really telling me it is acceptable for police to presume that someone is guilty of a crime, not because of anything they're doing, but merely because they live in a specific neighborhood? Or because a police officer decided to search them?

    What country do YOU live in? 'Cause last I checked, the US still held that you're innocent until proven guilty.
    Well first I wasn't talking about stop and frisk, no one was until you injected it into the conversation. What we were talking about were traffic stops and stops for minor local ordinances.

    Yes, I know the stop and frisk idea was a total bust. Hell, they tried it in Portland too for a while. I never said stop and frisk was a good idea. Again, wasn't what we were discussing in the first place.

    And if you think NYC has the stats for number of warrant arrests deriving from traffic or minor violation stops, show them. Prove me wrong. I know this for certain, the DUI checkpoint stats I've seen in the past render almost as many outstanding warrant arrests as DUI arrests.

    So their lives weren't at risk before? Then why are these cops constantly complaining about how their lives are in danger when that hasn't been the case until last week?

    Personally if I was the Mayor I'd apologize to the police and the people and then get representatives from both groups together to hash things out.
