(Newser) The NYPD detained the equivalent of 8.6% of all New Yorkers as part of its controversial "stop and frisk" program in 2011, and almost all of them were minorities, according to a statistical breakdown the department released last night. All told, police stopped a record 685,724 people, and nearly 90% of them were either black or Hispanic, the New York Post reports. Only 9% were white and 4% Asian. In many places, the racial disparity was even worse. In the two precincts that saw the most stops, Brooklyn's 75th and 73rd, 97% and 98% of cases, respectively, involved blacks or Hispanics.
NYT : “ Whites not contributing their fair share of crimes”
“What difference, at this point, does it make?”
They don’t dare tell us the crime rate and descriptions of criminals in the Pcts.
“(98% of those stopped were minorities”
You mean, whites were stopped the most?
How many had contraband?
How many had prior arrest records?
How many convictions resulted from the frisking?
Was the crime rate in the targeted neighborhoods significantly reduced?
A smart robber robs banks because that is where there is money.
“stop and frisk” has been ruled costitutional
Stay the hell out of NYC. A friend of mine got arrested for carrying a small pocket knife there. Yes, you read that right.
“stop and frisk” has been ruled constitutional
Bob Dylan wandered into a neighborhood where white people were scarce (this in the 21st century) and was stopped and probed with questions about what he was up to (he was not recognized).
Sounds like he was targeted BECAUSE he was white.
So, in NYC they just stop people who look like Obama’s son, if he’d had a son?
The assumption is that it is racist whites doing the frisking of minorities. NYPD is 20% black and 33% Latino. Whites are a minority in NYPD. And, as we all know, minorities cannot be guilty of racism against any race.
So has ObamaCare. So have random checkpoints. So have any number of other infringements.
Also, at least part of "stop and frisk" has been ruled unconstitutional.
Later in the evening a very scruffy looking character came in and I, as one of the organizers, was going to approach him because of his looks.
If he has anything like the same persona going now, I don't doubt that he was stopped. I am, however, surprised that the police were not intercepted by his bodyguards as I was.
It was probably more like 1-2% because there is a hardcore group of several thousand gangbangers/drugdealers who probably get stopped and frisked several times a month.
I hope that sexism doesn’t play a part.
White Hispanics can.
I don’t believe you.
