S.F. Mayor Considers 'Stop and Frisk' Plan

July 19, 2012  | 

Mayor Ed Lee's plan to consider implementing stop-and-frisk police tactics in San Francisco came under attack from both outside and inside City Hall on Tuesday.

The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously in favor of a nonbinding resolution urging Lee not to adopt a stop-and-frisk policy like that of New York City, where officers can stop and search people they deem suspicious.

The mayor also told reporters that he might even drop the term stop and frisk as he looks for ways to reduce gun violence in the city. "If it means rephrasing it, I'll clearly be open to that, but I've got to get to the guns, we've got to stop the violence in the Bayview and Ingleside communities," he said.

Hey Mayor, How about allowing concealed carry by LEGAL, lawbidding citizens? Sure seems to work in the free American cities its' been tried in. It ain't the guns bro, it's the pos that use them. How 'bout jaw bones of Asses? I understand thier pretty lethal too.
