Stop and Frisk

NYPD cops were hassling folks long before Stop and Frisk was conceptualized. Shoot it’s happened to my black middle class, pleasantly plump self. 

The cops involved take way too much pleasure, way too often in humiliating their victims. Human dignity and civil liberties are on the line. 

At the same time, this is an opportunity for us to think about crime: why and what to do about it.
