In 1990, there were 2,245 murders…the annual number of murders has fallen more than 80%, to 419 in 2012…Mr. Kelly says that stop-and-frisk is a critical — and constitutional — part of this success…53% of stops involve African-Americans, though blacks commit more than 70% of crimes. Hispanics on the other hand make up 32% of stops but commit 26% of crimes…96% of shooting victims and 90% of murder victims in New York City are black or Hispanic.
Nonetheless, “The liberal candidates — there is no other kind in these parts — are whacking with particular gusto at a police tactic.” Displacement again. Can’t expect these politicians to deal with the real problem, an illegitimacy rate of well over 70% in these neighborhoods.
