Cops Reportedly Say They’re Not Making Arrests After Cop Killings

Cops Reportedly Say They’re Not Making Arrests After Cop Killings – http://huff.to/1xeL42E

Sounds like there’s a bunch of conflations here.

For instance, there’s going to be no crime deterrant for most minor traffic tickets, so it isn’t really a “broken windows” type issue.

A lot of the more important conflicts are caused by “stop and frisk” racial profiling and it’s unclear if that is down.

When 90% of blacks stopped and frisked aren’t charged with anything it’s clear that it’s a form of unwarranted harassment.  It’s like the saying even a stopped clock is right twice per day, that it sometimes catches people doesn’t mean it’s a good policy, and because it’s unconstitutional any evidence they find ought to be tossed anyways.

It’s not clear what these numbers mean but if they reflect a reduction in harassment and a return to real police work I’m all for it.
