In a repudiation of a major element in the Bloomberg administration’s crime-fighting legacy, a federal judge has found that the stop-and-frisk tactics of the New York Police Department violated the constitutional rights of minorities in New York, and called for a federal monitor to oversee broad reforms.

 

In a blistering decision issued on Monday, the judge, Shira A. Scheindlin, found that the Police Department had “adopted a policy of indirect racial profiling” that targeted young minority men for stops. Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg said the city would appeal the ruling, angrily accusing the judge of deliberately not giving the city “a fair trial.”

Bloomberg is an idiot. It's a violation of the 4th amendment. It's sad we live in a society that no longer holds basic natural rights to be sacred.

Well no, but their implementation is, most assuredly.

Take a few minutes to look around the place. You are thinking of a fellow named g5gamz, he's not a thread killer, he's a topic killer.

I would disagree, by saying that I do not believe the intent of the voter ID laws are to discriminate against minorities.

 

Stop and frisk basically spelled it out.

CWG is the king of tangents.  Point well proven.

Everyone (that was stopped and frisked)... should take the place of the word minority in the thread title.
