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.
