NY ‘stop & frisk’ policy violates minorities’ rights, US Constitution - judge

12.08.2013 16:21

A US Federal Judge found that stop-and-search tactics used by the New York Police Department have violated the constitutional rights of tens of thousands of citizens and are racist, and called for a federal monitor to oversee reforms to the policy.

Guess whites will be the only ones stopped and frisked.

Stig, choosing to ignore reality and substitute a false reality for actual reality does not change the fact that you are a typical coward copsucker!

ALL police, yes 100%, are career criminals. This is easily proven in fact/law. Read the Constitution that the PIGS swear an oath to and violate hourly! Morons aren't capable of seeing this fact and instead choose to believe that a free people need organized gangs of power hungry/power seeking criminals to "protect" them.

Stig, you prefer slavery with the illusion of peace. A real American, you are not!

By the way Chris - You don't get stopped for no reason. Never convicted of a "serious" crime huh? Just other crimes? Unbelievable.
I'm advocating the police being allowed to do their job, which is to protect decent people from criminals. The police are one of the points of pride in the US - other countries police are so lenient it's not even funny. In Russia they hold a sign out and ASK you to stop.

Stig, you clearly don't live in the US. ... I have never been convicted of a serious crime but have been stopped randomly, searched, assaulted among other things about 12 times since I was as young as 13 years old. You must be a pig yourself I'm guessing since you're advocating police abuse and over reaching power. People like you are what is wrong with this country.

  

Born and raised in Central CA. People like you are what's wrong - I'm not a cop, but I have enough respect not to call those who protect my life and property a "pig."

So they will only stop and frisk whites?

Minorities don't have more or less rights than anyone else. If the law violates an individual's rights, then it violates all individuals' rights regardless of race, creed, color, etc. One only needs to look at the crimes statistics to see why blacks and hispanics are targeted by the police. American jails are not filled with Asians.

Violates the rights of all Americans. Who called up the Professional Victims Corporation?

Stig, you clearly don't live in the US. It's not even a racial issue it's an over reaching issue. I have never been convicted of a serious crime but have been stopped randomly, searched, assaulted among other things about 12 times since I was as young as 13 years old. You must be a pig yourself I'm guessing since you're advocating police abuse and over reaching power. People like you are what is wrong with this country.

That's an awfully radical view, ConservativeView. You do realize there is quite a difference between walking around town on your free time and flying on a plane in the air with hundreds of other passengers, right? You understand that security is policy at an airport, which you paid to fly from, differs from a public street? Just curious...

 

Conservative View 13.08.2013 13:01

Easy solution: Stop and frisk old ladies like we do in our nation's airports. Then nobody feels unserved by the hands of justice.

The other day in the news,i saw police men shooting a dog to death bcus the dog was concerned about the way they were treating his master,couple of days later another unarmed man was nearly shot to death in his own car inside his property for false call of robbery,my black friend told me that nowadays he seldom put his hands inside his pockets on the street nowadays for fear of police shooting him as potentialy armed and dangerous black male.Kind of serious police paranoa recently.They should start getting this police Men trained.

It would be interesting to see how many of these stop and searches resulted in arrests and for what? I'm sure the judge could designate that task to one of her helpers and give the public a more educated view on her opinions

This is what really happens - yesterday during a traffic stop, officers learned a driver, 19 years, was on felony probation and open to search and seizure. During a subsequent probation compliance search of his vehicle, officers located a loaded .22 caliber handgun hidden in the passenger side airbag compartment. The handgun was determined to have been stolen from a residence in Fresno, CA.

Driver was arrested and booked into the Fresno County Jail for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, carrying a loaded and concealed firearm, possession of stolen property, and probation violation.

No , it justs let corporate political interests rob citizens blind and leave them destitue in the streets and then profit on thier incarceration in for-profit prisons. It's a growth industry.

B oA gets a small fine for using bogus paper to foreclose on millions while some kid gets 10 years for a joint.

Nice system.

  


Clearly you don't live in the US - one thing has nothing to do with the other Mr. On-Topic.

Both the DOJ and civil suits in the hundreds of millions have been filed against BofA this year alone.

A joint is barely a misdemeanor - a ticket.

Kee p deluding yourself kid. Corporate owned government doesn't make people form street gangs, make meth labs, become child molestors, and commit residential burglaries. These are plain-and-simple THUGS and keep your econ-agenda out of it.

You don't get stopped or searched unless there is probable cause. You only need a warrant to search a home under certain circumstances.
[ /quote]

Fal se. And unless you're black, Hispanic, poor, or the cop has to meet a quota, or is just an jerk. Why not stop stop and frisk everybody? Make it mandatory.

This isn't Stalin's USSR or Hitler's Germany yet, but it's pretty close. The Men in Blue are the Brownshirts.
