HOLY CRAP look at the minority to white ratio.

This policy is complete madness.

They are targeting minorities.

Nobody should be surprised at the racial disparity.

But New York City should feel much, much safer now that the stoners are being arrested.

If they decriminalized weed in NY, the cops would have almost nothing to do.

This!  This is profiling, through and through.  The NYPD has become truly despicable.

Remember everyone: racism is dead and gone, and you're the real racist for looking at statistics that clearly demonstrate otherwise.

Well duh. In NOLA they cooperate with the weed dealers, that way they get your money AND your weed. Except they usually just fleece the tourists, not black people.
 
2013-05-22 04:25:13 PM
How can anyone with a moral bone in their body support this?

It is literally indefensible. There is no possible way to say that there is anything to this but racial profiling and intimidation.

You know, I attended the NYPD's academy to be a police officer.

I failed out when I actually shot the perp at the range, rather than the 9 people around him and the girl he was holding hostage.

So there's a JOB out there where I get to stop people who look "interesting" to me, grope them without fear of reprisal, and take their weed???


Holy Sheeeit, I"m gonna join the NYPD!!!

In all the IRS threads I was told by liberals that profiling was OK in order to single out certain groups.

What's the problem here then?

FTFA: Surveys have shown that whites use marijuana at higher rates than blacks or Hispanics, yet of the 26,225 marijuana-related stops made in 2012, only 8.7% involved whites-61.4% involved blacks or Hispanics.

and

For instance, blacks or Latinos make up only 7.8% of the residents in the 17th Precinct, which covers Kips Bay, Turtle Bay, and Murray Hill. But 74% of those stopped in that precinct were people of color. In Greenwich Village's 6th Precinct, that number was 83.5%, despite the fact that only 8% of the neighborhood's population has that racial makeup.

This from a liberal Mayor in a liberal city.  Now, explain to me again how "progressives" are such better, more tolerant and understanding, people than conservatives.

Yes, because the proper response to a police officer stopping you to do a constitutionally impermissible pat-down is to gun that farker down in his tracks. Clearly that is the solution with the least complicating or problematic consequences.

Here he is, folks, yet another responsible, law-abiding gun owner who thinks the solution to life's ordinary dilemmas is to shoot them.

So you are saying whites can keep their cool better since the smoke more? I'll hand it to you, it makes sense.

Based on the population and usage statistics, they should be stopping whites.

Reading comprehension isn't your forte I'm guessing?

Hint: if you can't trust the police to not violate the small things, why would you trust them with firearms?

I'd like to see a modest reduction in police armament.

Not what I said at all.

I was implying that the police are less than reliable.

Also, some people FREAKED when Arizona passed its "Papers, please" law; I figured that some of those same people would be on the same page here.

This is not unique to NYC.  My wife and I are friends with wives of cops, and they are always supremely happy whenever a bust goes down.  Then they get to raid the evidence locker.

I think the obvious tag could be bolded and underlined for this story.

Yep. When it's taught as a textbook definition of discriminatory police by a police force in Criminal Justice 101 you know it's bad.
