  •  Yeah, that's because they stopped black guys (0+ / 0-)

    for being black, and they stopped white guys for saying "Hey, officer, wanna buy some weed?"

    They frisked white guys for saying "Pardon me sir, but can I offer you a deal on a lightly used .38 with the serial numbers filed off?"  They frisked Puerto Rican guys for speaking Spanish.

    Funny how different the outcomes are when you stop folks for just a smidgen of actual reasonable suspicion.
