Except this isn't so much a stop and frisk as it is a statistical analysis of social networks. The simple notion that the are not a lot of murders in most towns so you focus on those violent lead dogs and tap them down. NOLA knows this phenomenon because after a decade of hyper violence they essentially burned up the cohort of young violent offenders because they were all either dead or in jail and the murder rate dropped -- something a professor at LSU predicted would happens years before the drop. The predictive look at those who might be the next victim is a cool feature of the system since retaliation, murder chains, are also known phenomenon among criminologists
Why would there be a need to frisk anybody in Chicago? They have some of the strictest gun laws in the country . . . and everyone know Chicago is the first city in the world enclosed in a glass bubble
Despite your snarky comments Vin I am on board with you on this one. You can't arbitrarily harass people but given a cause to stop someone, I am so on board with stop and frisk. The "cause" however is the sticky point isn't it? There needs to be rules but I do not agree with it being banned completely. I am also on board with swamping crime laden neighborhoods with extra cops. It doesn't have to be "the hood" either, because quite often sh*t A frequently goes from neighborhood B to neighborhood C to commit crime. Now that also runs the risk of racial profiling, so it is a tender subject. Needs a balance.

Less guns in the wrong hands decreases gun violence. More guns in the right hands also decreases gun violence. Taking away everyone's rights and forcing them to live under government occupation would also decrease gun violence. All been covered a thousand times, someone just needs attention. Stop giving it to him.

Anyone telling you that "MORE GUNS = MORE GUN VIOLENCE" is just flat out wrong, and likely an inbred, bucktoothed halfwit with penis breath and a mullet.
The insane thing is that the article says nothing really about taking away guns or gun control at all. .
