Police are searching for a man wanted in connection to a violent slashing that took place in North Corona earlier this month.

Hello sunshine- You sound pretty arrogant. I’m a white male and was subject to policing tactics very similar to stop and frisk (notice I didn’t use the word “victim”) multiple times, well before “stop and frisk” was an admitted policy, back in the 80’s. I worked at a bar and belonged to a pool and dart league out of that very same bar in Washington Heights. The Washington Heights and Inwood neighborhoods had changed from white middle class neighborhoods to largely Dominican and other minority groups with a huge drug and crime problem. It was not unusual for the police precinct to log 60 murders in a year. A terribly violent place. I was stopped for being a white guy ( white guys in the neighborhood were there only to buy drugs) dozens of times over the 8 years I worked and went to matches on my days off. The overwhelmingly majority of the stops were fairly routine and managed professionally. I was stopped on the subway outside the subway station on Broadway near the bar and outside the deli near the bar. The transit police (back then there was a separate department that ran the subways) didn’t log in or inform the street cops I had just been stopped so routinely I was stopped almost immediately after being questioned by a different patrolmen. Anti crime wouldn’t tell NSU or Narcotics I had just been questioned so I was constantly dealing with different officers. As I said the vast majority of stops were routine but there were several over the years that weren’t. A couple the officers involved were outright rude disrespectful and unprofessional. I had it better then many since my father was on the job and two of my uncles. Many people of color didn’t mind stop and frisk policy and did feel safer by them. The policy did net weapons and open warrants. Crime is always reduced when perps know there is a watchful eye. Its the abuse of the policy and the conduct of a tiny number of officers involved in the stop that created issues. Administered properly it’s an effective tool in law enforcement. Your reducing and downplaying the subject to that of a banner waving slogan shouting idiot fest helps nobody and only shows you for the simple minded and easily incited troll who obviously gets his news from entertainment outlet that deliberately manipulates these symptomatic proclivities. Grow up and stop the trolling.

@90%- In the height of stop-and-frisk in 2011 under the Bloomberg administration, over 685,000 people were stopped. Means 68,000 (10%) people were in violation of law in some way. Suddenly that doesn’t sound so insignificant.

Thanks to the mediocrity of the political leaders: AOC, Ramos, Cruz, Moya, Dromm, Den Dekker.

That area has been horrible since the 60’s. You do know that’s the area Kitty Genoveses murderer was arrested in back in the 60’s.

Never Socialism- The crime issue has more to do with landlords renting to scum. Fact!!! Politicians can do very little about who a landlord decides to do business with in a free market system.
