If the "Stop and Frisk" law in New York, was unfairly profiling white women, to get felt up on the street... It wouldn't be allowed to exist
Agree... or disagree.
For those unfamiliar. "Stop and Frisk", is the latest assault on the Bill of Rights. It allows police, to stop and frisk people on the street for any "articulable reason".
Less than 10% of the people searched are women... however, of the women searched, women were more likely to carry a concealed weapon, than men... Fascinating.
"In 2011, in New York City, 685,724 people were stopped, 84 percent of whom were Black and Latino". Less than one in ten people searched, possess anything illegal, despite "articulable reasons" for the search. In fact it has resulted in less than a 6% success rate.
I think if the people of New York State, had just had their tax dollars spent frisking 600,000 white women... With the same 6% finding rate. There would be 0% support for this law. The people of New York would be in violent revolt.
My suggestion. If you work for the NYPD, refuse to follow unconstitutional orders. Go on strike until the government repeals this incredibly racist and sexist policy. It is wrong to follow an uncostitutional order.
