As a New Yorker, I am heartbroken by the death of Police Officer Peter Figoski, and as a black woman, I am outraged by the hypocrisy of elected officials like City Councilman Jumaane Williams, Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries and others who consistently critique the NYPD and oppose its stop-and-frisk policies.
Have Williams, Jeffries and everyone else expressed their grief in the wake of the Figoski killing? Yes. But that doesnt change the fact that these politicians and their allies never miss a chance to attack cops for their supposedly discriminatory targeting of black youth. Meanwhile, every day I read the paper and the faces of those being arrested, arraigned, tried and sentenced for crimes they have committed are black.
Im not sad for these people. Not anymore. Now, I am angry. As I go about my daily business, as I commute from my home in the Bronx to downtown Brooklyn and back, I witness a generation that celebrates criminality. Young boys and girls walk around with their pants sagging around their ankles and rags on their heads, some of them even attending school this way. They recite obnoxious, offensive and violent rap lyrics. They write (misspelled) graffiti on walls promoting their gangs.

I’ve noticed that event he upstanding blacks are having enough of the criminality of their youth.
It’s a positive development to be sure.
nobody is opposed to stop and frisk to help out criminal remain at-large, the main issue is this policy violates the constitutional prohibition on unreasonable searches. The guy walking on a street,not bothering anybody,even if you suspect he is up to no good you can’t frisk him. That’s my understanding of USC. If to fight crime you have to violate the US Constitution, then you doing it wrong.
You can blame the Rat party who have replaced daddy’s paycheck with one from Uncle Sam.
Big deal, outwest, most of those arrested, arraigned, tried and sentenced for crimes they have committed are Mexican.
So now NYC has not only food, movie, and theater critics but also police critics?
"Officer Jones delivered a truly stunning performance when he surreptitiously removed the taser from his Versace-designed holster and shocked young perpetrator Mr. Smith into a breakdance imitation of seldom-seen alacrity - 4.5 out of 5 stars."
