With regard to “stop and frisk” our Supreme Court has STATED in Terry v. Ohio
”We merely hold today that, where a police officer observes unusual conduct which leads him reasonably to conclude in light of his experience that criminal activity may be afoot and that the persons with whom he is dealing may be armed and presently dangerous, where, in the course of investigating this behavior, he identifies himself as a policeman and makes reasonable inquiries, and where nothing in the initial stages of the encounter serves to dispel his reasonable fear for his own or others’ safety, he is entitled for the protection of himself and others in the area to conduct a carefully limited search of the outer clothing of such persons in an attempt to discover weapons which might be used to assault him. Such a search is a reasonable search under the Fourth Amendment, and any weapons seized may properly be introduced in evidence against the person from whom they were taken.”
Now, let us look at the pinko propaganda put out by the New York Daily News. See Donald Trump gets the facts about stop-and-frisk completely wrong in presidential debate
”Trump said Holt was “wrong” in saying stop-and-frisk searches are unconstitutional.
It’s Trump who was wrong.”
But, as stated by the Supreme Court, stop-and-frisk is not unconstitutional.
The New York Daily News also stated:
”Trump also insisted in the debate that crime and murders have gone up since stop-and-frisk stopped.
He told Clinton she was “wrong” in pointing out that crime has continued falling under Mayor de Blasio.
Once again: You’re wrong, Trump”
Is Trump wrong? Not according to the New York Daily Post. See NYPD Commissioner William Bratton to speak on crime trends; shootings up; stop and frisks down
”Bratton has insisted the shootings are unrelated to the large drop in stop and frisk activity by cops. But the latest police data showed the New York City police precincts with the largest increases in shootings last year – as well as, in a few cases, more homicides – also reported having the lowest numbers of stop and frisks in 2014.”
The bottom line is, Lester Holt was wrong when asserting stop-and-frisk is un-constitutional. And there has been an uptick in New York City’s murder rate since stop and frisk has been ended.
The Obama/Hillary Administration has given aid and comfort to our sworn enemies by releasing them from GITMO and paid hundreds of millions in ransom for the return of our military personnel. ***
