Judge rules NYPD's 'stop-and-frisk' policy violates rights
#1
Mr. Bloomberg does not care for the 4th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

A federal judge ruled Monday that the New York Police Department violated the civil rights of New Yorkers with its broad "stop-and-frisk" policy, in a blow to the Bloomberg administration.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg, within hours of the decision, vowed to appeal. He said at a news conference Monday that the judge displayed a "disturbing disregard" for the "good intentions" of police officers.

While Bloomberg has argued that the policy has helped fight crime and save lives, U.S. District Court Judge Shira Scheindlin called for an independent monitor to oversee major changes to the policy.

I'll bet Bloomberg is against requiring an ID to vote, too since that would be "unconstitutional".

You know what they say about "good intentions."

This morning on CNN, Newt Gingrich was making the same argument of convenience.

No, the road to tyranny is paved with the blood of those who did not want to travel to hell via the road of good intentions.

It's about goddamn time. This has been the NYPD's unofficial policy since time began; Bloomberg just made it official. So in a roundabout way, Bloomberg making Stop and Frisk official departmental procedure was a good thing: it brought to light the practice of state-sanctioned bigotry and civil rights violations, enough for a court to finally intervene and say, "Enough."

You know, you're right. I hadn't thought about it that way. It should have never existed to start with, but him being a pompous douche and making it official was fantastic because it got the courts involved.

It was a "policy" of the Philly PD back when Rizzo was mayor too, was a frequent victim of it, I didn't know shit back then.

Rizzo spawned the "boot cops"... NYPD ain't got $hit on the Rizzo years when it came to blatant civil rights violations.
