  • Rogers Park Phoenix It happens.

    Bill, you are correct about "stop and frisk" not technically being unconstitutional. It was ruled unconstitutional in the manner that NYC was carrying it out, The manner in which folks here are advocating for it is the same however.

    Currently, CPD can still do an "investigative stop" but because of the extra paperwork that was agreed to by the CPD and the ACLU to make sure that there was no profiling, many cops are now "going fetal."

    And we are all paying the price for it! THANKS ACLU!!!! Like BLM, how many have to be killed before they realize their help is getting people killed?
