    For NYers, it is helpful to know that Christine Quinn is a strong supporter of continuing this policy.  Weiner initially voiced support, but appears to have revised his position.  DeBlasio and Thompson have been coy on the issue.  They give voice to the problems, but have not indicated what they will do with this policy.  Only John Liu has vociferiously and unequivocally opposed this program.  He says that if elected, he would stop it.  I personally will not vote for a candidate who supports stop and frisk.
