  •  Mayor Bloomberg - Racist (9+ / 0-)

    Let us put the blame where it belongs.

    Stop and frisk did not appear by magic.  It does not continue by magic.

    The stop and frisk policy continues because of one man.

    Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of New York.

    The policy is racist.

    New Yorkers, your policy speaks to the nature of your Mayor.

    Racist at heart.

    We can have change for the better.

    •  It continues because of the Mayor (8+ / 0-)

      but he is continuing the bs started by Giuliani.

      It's hard to believe that he was able to  worm (buy) his way into at third term :(

        Giuliani Favors Internal Police Inquiries Over Review Board's

        Responding to criticism that he has crippled the civilian board that investigates complaints of police misconduct, Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani said yesterday that such outside investigations will never be as effective as the Police Department's own efforts to root out brutality and corruption from within.

        He stopped short of saying there should be no board, as he did when he ran for mayor in 1992, but he said that no matter how large the budget or staff of the Civilian Complaint Review Board, it would be ill suited to penetrating the complex, insular culture of the Police Department.

        ''An independent body has a very hard time effectively investigating an organization of 38,000 people that is expert at investigating itself,'' he said. ''A much better way to improve the Police Department is to get it to investigate itself.''

        "Investigate iteslf" - not a good plan imo
