    •  That's a lot you are doing, considering the (3+ / 0-)

      quality of content you bring to your diaries. This very disturbing stop and frisk practice must be stopped. I don't know how that can be accomplished with Kelley and Bloomberg entrenched, but somehow citizens need to organize to stop this cruel and intimidating practice.

      In Vermont, we have our own version of stop and frisk. A couple of years ago a Latino couple moved here from Texas and their car had dark-tinted windows. They were stopped so constantly they had to remove the tinting in order to be able to drive anywhere in the state. I guess their brown skin and the tinted windows were enough to trigger the Vermont cops to stop them again and again.
