    The Everyblock buttons are not working again, so I'll have to give kudos to my old friend Bill Kopec for citing Terry V. Ohio, first. . He and everyone else who cited it are correct. As far as Tamara St. Clair, she's one hundred percent correct. There is absolutely no reason to get personal, nasty, uncivilized, or sarcastic, with someone just because they disagree with you. Her posts are well written, well thought out, and respectful. We all are misinformed sometimes.

    As far as stop and frisk is concerned, NYC is not as segregated as Chicago, and the stop and frisk naysayers can easily make a case for it being racially biased, even if isn't. In Chicago where most communities are of one race or another is a different matter. If the police stop and frisk a black male for example in a black, high crime, community, is it racial profiling? Some outside that community may say yes. Others in that community that are affected by black on black crime might say no. As usual the CPD are in the middle.

  • George, when it comes to the forensics of a street stop, be it Chicago or NYC, I gladly yield to you.
