Yeah, I agree. It is a very important story and the profanity was minimal and only on the recording itself. I then wrote a rant about how as adults we should be able to post documentaries that have profanity in context of the subject - that too go thrown in the trash bin. Now I am on thin ice because of it and can't even get a response back as to why there can't be a discussion about it. If it is important as this story is, imho, it should be allowed. But it isn't and won't be. Have a great day!

This is absolutely outrageous!
I'm mad as hell right now. Stop and frisk?! IN AMERICA........AS ROUTINE POLICY?!
I've never heard of this until now. How could this stand up to constitutional scrutiny!?
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
This needs to be challenged NOW! People....ALL PEOPLE....need to get angry and get active.
I...I... can't understand this....Nazi Germany was within the last century. AMERICANS fought and died
to stop evil power systems like this.......and we just take it as a normal day-to-day routine?
I can't believe I've never even heard about this till now....nobody's even speaking out...

You're always shilling for the worst things imaginable, anti-wikileaks, pro-murderous military, *snip*
I don't know a thing about who this kid is or what his background may be. Stop and Frisk is one thing, but it's that personal touch and attention he gets too. It would appear, very personal and individual. Now the kid sure as heck isn't going to tell anyone if he's sitting as a suspect on..say a sex offense, or a killing. Who knows?
Uh, his experience is normal. Just listen to the videos I posted at the bottom of page 1.
No, cops like to harass minorities, all over the USA. They also work on quotas, so if they can set them off on a frisk and get an arrest, it means career mobility for them. Did you not watch the video? Multiple ex-police officers admitted this.

Maybe I have missed something here.
But it seems to me that when the state of Arizona tried to legislate something along these lines, the federal government jumped all over it, calling it racial profiling and suing the state to keep them from implementing it.
But in New York, this is being done without a peep from the federal government. Why is that? In both instances it appears to me that it really boils down to the same thing: harrassing minorities.
So why hasn't the federal government sued about this going on in NY?
Am I completely confused about what is going on in these two places?
Is it somehow holier to do this in NY than it is in AZ?

What part of "stop and frisk" don't you understand? He was stopped because they have a policy of stopping and frisking people at random. If they see someone they suspect might have drugs or a weapon they stop and frisk them.*snip*
