NYC Mayor Bloomberg says police "disproportionately stop whites too much and minorities too little" as compared to murder suspects' descriptionsMayor Michael Bloomberg said Friday that police "disproportionately stop whites too much and minorities too little" as compared to murder suspects' descriptions, sparking criticism from activists and some politicians in a city that has been immersed in a debate about law enforcement and discrimination.
Speaking on his weekly WOR-AM radio appearance, Bloomberg echoed an argument he has made before: that the stops' demographics should be assessed against suspect descriptions, not the population as a whole. But coming a day after city lawmakers voted to create a police inspector general and new legal avenues for racial profiling claims, the mayor's remarks drew immediate pushback.The measures' advocates accused the mayor of using "irresponsible rhetoric," some mayoral hopefuls chastised him and some City Council members said his remarks only emphasized the need for change."Our mayor's comments prove he just doesn't get it," said Councilman Robert Jackson, who co-chairs the council's Black, Latino and Asian Caucus.

According to the media police shouldn't stop minorities at all, wether they match the suspect description or not.'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

You can't stop minorities; you can't stop white people; you can't use race in BOLOs.

Well our city's illegal immigration ordinance was just upheld as legal by the 8th Circuit, so I'm waiting for all the professional victim special interest groups to come flooding back into town and start making baseless racial profiling claims.
