As the curtain closes, Amazing Grace gets a standing ovation, with shouts and tears to boot. Maybe, I missed something. Maybe, I don't understand. It's okay that I don't like it because someone else did. But for me, it is not enough. It's too trapped in "history" to acknowledge the history that resides inside us.

As the NYPD rolls out this new plan, I hope those tasked with implementing the policy do not replace one legally discredited practice of hunch-based stops with an automated HunchLab system only to find themselves facing similar legal challenges to the fairness and effectiveness of this policing strategy.
