The New York Post proved last week their recklessness with the facts during the Boston bombings. Let's make sure they don't do the same thing in the important debate surrounding stop and frisk in New York City.
The NYPD appears to assume that every young man in a specific neighborhood is a criminal, acts on that assumption with frequent shakedowns and then appears to be confounded when the community does not welcome them.
In the brouhaha over Ray Kelly's charge that minority leaders who decry stop-and-frisk are "shockingly silent" about violence in their own communities, the one person who should be speaking out has also been shockingly silent.
Today, in the city of NY, we are facing another troubling form of biased profiling and searches known as 'Stop-and-Frisk.' Only difference is, this time, you can be targeted for simply walking down the street.
