The entire justification that this guy offers is that maybe your child will get shot, so they need to frisk anyone who seems suspicious.
I am currently working 11-7am and I walk to work for the exercise carrying my lunch in a backpack. The shortest route takes me through a rough
nieghbourhood but being a 6 foot, 220lb man I'm not worried, just alert.
Being winter and I'm in Canada, my hands are in my pockets and I'm walking fast.
-Late at night
-Rough area of town
-Carrying a 'package'
-Hands in pockets / 'hunched' (against the cold)
-In a hurry
I'd be stopped by every cop who saw me under those criteria. Since it gets cold in Philly and like most cities today people work around the clock I'd
say a majority of people fit into the suspicious category.
As a side note, since most of the people being stopped are black, isn't that racial profiling?
Isn't that illegal?
(I guess being white and in my late 30's I'd only get stopped by every other cop, but then they'd see me as the typical serial killer so screwed
