Donald Trump: Stop and Frisk Wasn’t Effective and yes…You’re a Racist.

1. On the debate tonight Donald Trump alluded to the fact that stop and frisk was an effective deterrent against crime in N.Y.C. Next, he alluded to the fact that “stop and frisk,” would somehow bring the crime rate down in “the African-American inner city.”
Studies don’t agree with him…

“In analyzing close to 150,000 arrests that resulted from approximately 2.4 million stops between 2009 and 2012, the report concludes that roughly half of those arrests, or just three percent of stops, led to guilty pleas or convictions at trial. In addition, just 0.3 percent of stops led to jail sentences of more than 30 days, and 0.1 percent led to convictions for a violent crime. The report also finds widespread consequences for arrestees and criminal justice institutions, including litigation costs incurred by the city, and various harms even to individuals arrested for misdemeanors.”

Sounds like Donald Trump is full of shit…as usual.

I’ll tell you what stop and frisk does do though:

1. Violate the constitution.

I don’t want a president who violates the constitution.

Oh well, bigot is as bigot does…
