John, Pat and Chris discuss how NYC’s stop and frisk policy was ruled by a U.S. District judge as unconstitutional. NYC mayor Bloomberg was quoted by ABC as saying “the tactic, which allows cops to search anyone regardless of whether they believe a crime has been committed is “an important part of NYPD’s record of success.” Just as the judge said no matter how effective a policy or program may be if it’s unconstitutional it’s no good. However, the program was not effective. The policy was being used for racial profiling where a disproportionate amount of Hispanic and Black men’s 4thamendment rights were violated. They continue to discuss the original intent of the 4th amendments and why it is still important today.
