NYPD official on tape explains the goal of stop and frisk: "the right people at the right time, the right location.” And more: “The problem was, what, male blacks... I have no problem telling you this, male blacks 14 to 20, 21.” http://nyti.ms/11mNl

Even if black and hispanic men are more likely to commit crimes, I think this sort of policy/practice is problematic, and goes against my value system (and I think many people's).  I believe that how you treat someone can influence their behaviors--and treating someone like a criminal can be more likely to influence them to create crime, by diminishing their trust in police officers, government, or society in general, and by creating a self-fulfilling prophesy.  America is founded on the idea of innocent before proven guilty and requiring certain evidence (and warrants) before searching and detaining people.  I think this is one of the reasons why.  So I think, even if this policy is motivated by intentions of preventing crime, I think it's unacceptable and I think it may actually be increasing crime, not to mention perpetuating institutional racism.

And this one should send liked Instapaper articles to a notebook in Evernote. For those rare ones I want to keep for reference.

While I'm passing through Google+ today, I might as well plug my wife's full-length collection of poetry, some prizes she has won and other news at her site, which I built for her on Squarespace: http://jane-rosenberg-laforge.com/ Enjoy.
