Let’s Stop And Frisk the New York Police Department

The controversial ‘program’, Stop and Frisk is a legal reason for law enforcement to harass, er, stop mostly minorities in the hopes of catching some infraction (Firearms, drugs, etc.) in the name of preventative measures to stop alleged criminal activities before they happen.  I’m sure this was put in place because before this ‘program’ was instituted, it was illegal to do this without just cause (and mind you, in New York City, just cause is being Black and any other non-white race. As we know it, the police stopped us ‘just cause’ we’re minorities.) This has been controversial since its inception because it usually happens in minority neighborhoods (or as law enforcement likes to say, ‘high crime areas’. That is cop speak for any neighborhood that houses mostly Blacks and Latinos).

Nearly 90% of the ‘victims’ of the NYPD’s Stop and Frisk program (Stop and Frisk- New York Civil Liberties Union’s stats) were ‘innocent’ of any infractions, yet, this continues in the name of ‘preventing crime’, yet, there are crimes in other areas of the city, yet, the ‘citizens’ of those neighborhoods aren’t subjected to this method. What I don’t understand is how can this practice be justified when only 10% of the people harassed, er, stopped, may have weapons, drugs or anything illegal on them? Law enforcement claims it is preventing crime by doing this but how come they aren’t on the Upper East Side frisking white kids who deal drugs, carry weapons and commit other crimes as well? Or down in Chelsea or any other ‘non-minority’ area of the city? Read more…
