Response to SCantiGOP (Reply #4)

7. Nope. Bloomberg's Stop and Frisk policy was declared unconstitutional. It denied five million people

their civil liberties, jettisoned the fourth amendment, and led to crushing consequences for many
AA and Latinx youth. He also illegally surveilled and spied on Muslims. In both cases, profiling was
used extensively. In fact, with SQF, cause for suspicion of carrying a weapon was not the criteria for stopping—only race determined who was stopped.

In addition, the FBI had to put a halt to Bloomberg’s operation against Muslims. Not one lead came out of it.

Harris was already unfairly painted as being on the wrong side of the law, which affected her support among some AA voters.

An association with Bloomberg will be seen as a sell-out. He won’t get the nomination and she will have damaged her excellent reputation. Though Bloomberg has some AA support, it is anti-Trump
driven. Once he can not help oust Trump, his draconian crime fighting program and his justification for it will end his current favor.

I do not believe Harris will ever join his ticket, in any case. It would help him, but not her.
