Detroit Police Considering A ‘Stop And Frisk’ Policy, Is Flint Next? [Video]
Detroit is considering adopting a ‘Stop And Frisk’ policy to help the police deal with a spike in crimes, and there is speculation that Flint isn’t far behind.
The aggressive new policy would be put in place to help a shrinking police force control a growing crime problem. DPD Assistant Chief, Erik Ewing released this statement:
“Based on reasonable suspicion, the Detroit Police Department is already a stop-and-frisk policing agency. Detroit’s population is mostly African American, so it stands to reason that a high number of African Americans will be stopped, based on reasonable suspicion. This is not racial profiling, just officers doing good constitutional police work.”
Do you think that Stop and Frisk would be a good or bad thing in Flint?
