Quote of the Day: Stop-and-Frisk Da Bomb in Brooklyn Edition

“But while the stop [and frisk] program, like all NYPD tactics, should be — and is — constantly reassessed, the effort to portray stops as a racist assault on minorities is poisonous and irresponsible. To date, no other government initiative has come close to saving as many lives and improving the quality of life in poor communities as the NYPD’s proactive policing.” – Heather Mac Donald, protecting NY’s poor, nypost.com
