S.F. Mayor Drops Stop-and-Frisk Plan
August 07, 2012
San Francisco's mayor has dropped plans to implement New York City's stop-and-frisk policy, after community leaders criticized the plan, saying it would lead to racial profiling.
Mayor Ed Lee said he would instead rely on targeted police enforcement, crime-tracking software and increased involvement by ministers to combat the gun violence that has plagued some of the city's most crime-ridden neighborhoods, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.
Mayor Lee initially proposed the idea in June, which led to a Board of Supervisors resolution urging him not to implement a policy that has drawn controversy and a civil rights lawsuit in New York City.

Perhaps the SF officers could wear blindfolds...

And exactly what is this "policy". NYPD is supposed to be following the law - period. There is no "policy" - unless it is to harass cops constantly for numbers, including UF-250's (stop and frisk reports).

Damn, this is better then the sunday comics!! " community leaders"?? Ministers getting involved? Just what the hell is Lee smoking? If these little turds were spending any time in church, outside of stealing the statues and everything not nailed down, they wouldn't be out killing each other. Have you noticed that these bangers all have religious tats? Jesus, the Virgin Mary,etc all over their backs and chests sure proves the impact the "ministers" have. Somebody please flush this bowl.

This is a "Terry Stop"! The areas they were going to do this was the Tenderloin and Hunter's Point areas. This is where all the gun crimes are. But that's OK, the community now feels safer now that they know the bad ol' po po won't be allowed to search anyone. And they'll be able to complain that the police are not doing enough to end gun violence. It's a win-win for the POS'
