Trump fleshed out a popular racist lie about stop and frisk ... Jim Dwyer injects reality... (via The New York Times)
Among the senseless beatings inflicted on reality during the presidential debate on Monday night was the discussion of New York City’s stop-and-frisk tactics.
Donald J. Trump attributed a nonexistent increase in murder to actions that never happened, namely, the ending of the stop-and-frisk practice by, variously, “a judge, who was a very against-police judge,” and the “current mayor.”
This was multilayered fiction.
Murder declined. A judge did not end stop-and-frisk. Neither did the current mayor.
In fact, the Police Department began to drastically curtail its use in 2012, under the administration of Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, an independent. This is well documented but only lightly noticed. On July 9, 2012, an editorial in The New York Post warned that the reduction in its use would lead to “more blood in the street.”
By the way, did more blood run in the street?
No, less blood did.
White fear and racism are one of the main cores of Trump's support
