Stop and frisk is a horrible, evil, ineffective, awful, and blatantly unconstitutional program. It is a stain on New York City. It is despicable that the powers that be came up with it in the first place and continue it to this day. It is outrageous that a federal court judge had to tell New York City that even in that city, the same standard applies to all persons: that a police officer must have reasonable suspicion a person is committing or has committed a crime before that officer can stop that person. And even with that, somehow, NYC cops still aren't exactly being told, "STOP IT!" It's infuriating.

That is all there is to say about that.

John Oliver and Jessica Williams did a funny piece where they concurred with the program - if it was implemented on Wall St and focused on white men.

Yeah, I thought about imbedding that video in the post, but just didn't have the time (or energy).

They nailed it, though. That show has a tendency to find just the right approach.
