The Golden Rule of New York- He Who Has the Gold, Rules

I have said repeatedly that New York City is different, a place run by its own rules as convenient for the ruling class that lives or spends a lot of time there, illustrated best by the practice of “stop and frisk”. The NYPD simply stops people who they think look suspicious, questions and searches them for drugs and weapons. This is obviously and blatantly “unconstitutional” and if they did this in Dallas the ACLU would be screaming bloody, racist murder. But New York is not Dallas, and the elite will not live under the same dangerous conditions they insist on for the rest of us.

The ACLU does object to this in New York, but it is a fairly pro forma objection and nobody seriously believes it is going to change. Here’s the money quote-

“Police spokesman Paul Browne said the demographic breakdown corresponded to crime data. The department provided the data to the New York City Council on Friday and to reporters on Saturday.”

So they are coming right out and saying, yes, we stop and search a vastly disproportionate number of blacks and Hispanics, but blacks and Hispanics commit a vastly disproportionate amount of crime. A Washington State Supreme Court justice got voted out for such a horribly racist statement. John Derbyshire lost his job over it. But the NYPD are security guards for the elite, the hedge fund managers, the limousine liberals, YKW or however you want to say it. So that makes it OK.

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.

    Why don’t other cities copy NY’s “stop and frisk” policies verbatim? You’re right that a different rulebook applies to NY, but wouldn’t it be awkward for TPTB/the Beast/YKW to shut down Dallas’s (or better yet, Milwaukee’s) “stop and frisk” while leaving NY’s intact?

    • It would be racist and evil if they did it anywhere else. Why? Just because. That’s the great thing about being in power, you make the rules and don’t answer to anybody.

      • Lawful Neutral says:

        Maybe so, but nobody has even tried it. Do the city fathers of Dallas secretly share your understanding of New York’s special above-the-law status? If not, how do they know they’d be crushed for something that’s already been accepted?

  2. NYC is a very expensive amusement park for adults.

    Lawful Neutral,
    Lots of cities have tried it, they get the snot sued out of them by the ACLU and sometimes the Justice Department piles on, especially if they’re a Southern city. You’re expecting consistency and rule of law. Such is an illusion, and not even a very convincing one these days. For instance, lots of areas already have voter Id laws a lot more stringent than the ones that the Justice Department is challenging right now. It’s who…whom all the way down. The sooner white people realize that the better.

    • Lawful Neutral says:

      A little cursory searching shows Philadelphia got smacked down last year for this, so I guess you’re right.

      • Jehu says:

        I do confess I’m not sure how letting NYC get away with early 1970s style policing is communicated through the various pressure groups like the ACLU and the Justice Department. But apparently it somehow is. Perhaps Philadelphia got the idea that they could be like New York too?
