Crime SuspenStories: Stop and Frisk

Bloomberg’s Stop and Frisk policy, where hundreds of thousands of men are harassed by police every year for walking on sidewalks while brown, is seeing some very public push back lately. It always takes the general populace a while to catch on to shitty things happening to largely poor and minority groups. Designed to round up guns, it clearly, plainly violates the Fourth Amendment. And it’s crazy racist; 87 percent of those stopped are non-white. It turns out black people have a sharply negative view of this policy while white people are more approving, if you can believe that shocking fact.
