2. Yeah I hope everyone can imagine what it would be like to

be stopped and searched by the police at any time.



01/08/11: Police stop a 21-year-old in Queens, citing "furtive movements." No weapon is found.

01/08/11: Police use force to stop a 27-year-old in Bronx, citing "suspicious bulge." No weapon is found.

01/08/11: Police stop a 15-year-old in Bronx, citing "furtive movements." No weapon is found.

01/08/11: Police stop a 26-year-old in Queens, citing "other." No weapon is found.

4. I just looked through the first 500 from that day...

 

and only ONE weapon found on someone who was already engaged in a crime. That said, I dont understand the justification for this. Its a clear violation of the 4th amendment. I'd be bullshit if somebody tried to do this to me. "Suspicious bulge". Are you kidding me? Looks like they frisk thousands of people a day for no reason. And Im guessing these arent Wall St. guys in business suits.
