“Stop and Frisk” is racial profiling plain and simple. This is illegal behavior on the part of law enforcement and is a breach of civil rights for anyone stopped, regardless of race. The actions and abuse by the NYPD are filling the definition of a “Police State.” You can read much more about cops running amuck and how they’ve violated civil liberties across the country at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/08/th...

You're right. Terrorists and criminals should walk freely. How dare police search them? After all law abiding citizens and terrorists/criminals have the same rights.

Stop & Frisk has done wonders for lowering New York's murder rate.

That is good!

I wish people outside of New York would shut their mouths!

Stop & Frisk only goes after Blacks & Hispanics more because Blacks & Hispanics commit more crime.

Asians actually are less likely to be Stopped & Frisked than Whites in New York.

The police should stop and frisk mafia scum and nra members to get the guns off the streets.

If getting the guns off is the true gold and not racism, stop mafia scum and nra members.

since when are NRA members "scum"? they are people who legally own guns, not people who buy them from dubious people in bars. we have stop and search in London, and you would be amazed at what falls out if you shake a golly .

Anyone who place guns in the hands of criminals is scum.
This include the mafia,dirty cops and crooked NRA members.

Here in Northern Ireland, we have great powers for stop and searching criminals, druggies and terrorist criminals.

Dissident Republican criminals are the most vocal about an alleged campaign of harrasment by the PSNI claiming the catholic community is being targeted but its not true.

As a law abiding catholic, i have never been stopped and searched for any reason ever, let alone under a terrorist related power of stop and search.

The b45tards that get stop and searched in Northern Ireland deserve it .

Im not on for doing it because of the colour of ones skin!
