NYPD Honcho Wants to Frisk You Even More

NYPD honcho Ray Kelly lost his minnnnnnd last night. He appears to think that not enough poor and/or black people are out in the streets demanding more stop and frisk, so that there will allegedly be fewer murders and shootings right now. Stop and frisk in New York City already engages about 3/4 of a million people this year—and it would have pretty much "zero" effect on how there were 16 murders in New York in the course of five days earlier this month. (Also, of those murders, three were mothers killing their children, and one was a crazed stabber shot by transit cops.)

This is funny timing for Kelly to be banging his badge on this topic! Since the current process of stop and frisk is about to be (correctly) eaten away by the courts.

So if the courts find this unconstitutional, does all the evidence found in S&F cases get thrown out?

Yes, just like how the 14th amendment reversed the damages of slavery.

Clearly, we need to stop and frisk more judges, to root out the ones prone to uphold the constitution.

Honestly, I hope Kelly is our next mayor.

@Lockheed Ventura Assuming this is a pro-Batman comment?

@Lockheed Ventura He's not quite electable—I imagine he'll remain a faithful technocrat, if not in New York, then at the state or federal level.

if i am opposed to the policy of stop and frisk then i condone and encourage violent crime.
am i missing something here?

@roboloki Not only that. You also want the terrorists to win.
