Bloomberg apologist makes no pretense of reasonable suspicion for stop-and-frisk

He concludes with the claim that the ruling denies New Yorkers the "freedom from fear." He remains oddly silent about the fear of armed government goons empowered to grope you, on the basis of your skin color, send you to prison if they catch you with the means to defend your life, and to kill you if you "lift a finger" against their thuggery.

A decent person cannot help but cling to the fervent hope that there will one day be a reckoning for all the evils in the world. Let us further hope that this reckoning will extend to the cheerleaders for those evils. Ready for the reckoning, Podhoretz? [More]

That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Please give it a look, and tell a friend.

IIRC, Mayor Bloomberg defended targeting Blacks and Hispanics, saying that they were 90% of the murderers but "only" 87% of the suspects who were stopped and frisked. (And non-Hispanic whites were 9% of suspects stopped and frisked but "only" 7% of murderers.) If Reagan or Bush had made such a statement, then civil rights activists (NAACP, SCLC, ACLU) would probably call for his impeachment.

If police stop and question a person because he actually fits the description of a suspect, it is legitimate. If they are stopping people based on some sort of statistical probability (e.g., "58% of muggers are black men, so there is a 58% chance that that black guy over there is a mugger"), then it's harassment. BTW, most serial killers are white males, so targeting blacks or Hispanics would not have caught Son of Sam.

Exactly, Anon: Bloomberg says NYPD's 'stop-and-frisk' campaign not racist enough.
