NYPD Stopped, Frisked 8.6% of City in 2011 (98% of those stopped were minorities)

(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.

I see the problem here. It's them damn white people who aren't committing enough crimes. If only them whities were more suspicious, they'd get frisked more.

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.

Stay the hell out of NYC. A friend of mine got arrested for carrying a small pocket knife there. Yes, you read that right.

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.

A bit of a long story but, he's from up near here and his nephew was playing in a band that we had hired for a New Years' Eve party.

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.

I highly doubt it was 8.6%.

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.

Perhaps you should have bolded the term "upon probable cause" as well.

A white person “wandering” into a non-white neighborhood, 98% of the time, is looking to buy drugs.

That’s as true as “anyone out after 1AM is up to no good.”

But cops and prosecutors like to encourage this belief among jurors.

Where do they get these figures.

Do the police have to make out a report each time they stop someone, and in that report have to state the race of who they searched?

“stop and frisk” has been ruled constitutional"

So has abortion.

And so has involuntary "commerce" via obamacare.

The only thing that will restore the Constitution and our Freedoms is a revolution. The elite in D.C. can "rule" that the sky is Stewart plaid, but that doesn't make it so.

New York City, 2010

28.6% - Persons of Hispanic or Latino origin

33.3% - White persons not Hispanic

"So, in NYC they just stop people who look like Obama’s son, if he’d had a son?"

And Obama's city, Chicago, doesn't. Which is the reason (not "gun-control") for the difference between the murder rate in Chicago and New York City!

But, like all politically incorrect truths, this one has no place in the leftwing media driven debate.

have you ever been to NYC? Walk through mid-town and maybe 40% of the people are white, at most.

I used to have a high profile customer there, and thought the money was worth it.

No longer have that customer and I’m much happier.

Not really, You can bet your last dollar, much of it was repeats of the the usual suspects and/or gang members - many known to be past offenders - up to the same shit at the same times and places as before.

The 22-year-old officer was dispatched after residents in the New Jersey town of Long Branch had phoned to complain that a man in the Latin quarter was acting suspiciously.

"Daytona Beach Fl?? taking a walk before a show.."

It was in New Jersey, when he took a walk near one of his concert venues in a black neighborhood, where whites are profiled as drug buyers.

All true. The cops also falsely charged him with other things too. Big mess all around. I avoid cities like the plague.

Yes indeed, I would not think of going there, nor to any of the other state hellholes (Massachusetts, Maryland, Delaware, etc.). If a state does not recognize my rights as a citizen, then to hell with it. They can get their revenue from other sources.

I encourage people to boycott MA. They don’t recognize out of state licences to buy beer and such here. If you’re under 40 and they card you they have the right to refuse you. It’s crazy.
