Defiant Mayor Bloomberg Vows To Appeal ‘Stop & Frisk’ Ruling by Activist Judge to avoid return to Dinkins Era

As a lifelong New York City resident, I remember the high crime days under Mayor David Dinkins.Down the block from my house in broad day light drug dealers operated an open air market for all kinds of drugs.

The number of murders was 2,300 to 2,600 per year for each year Dinkins was in office.He was by far the worst mayor in New York City history and New Yorkers revolted at the ballot box by not electing a Democrat mayor for the past 20 years.

Today’s decision by a radical Leftist judge appointing a Federal monitor to oversee the NYPD’s stop and frisk program is a major step backward toward the bad old Dinkins days.However, Mayor Michael Bloomberg is refusing to give up without a fight to protect his legacy of record breaking crime reduction.: : : : : :

Bloomberg has vowed to appeal a Monday ruling by a federal judge that stated that the NYPD’s controversial “stop and frisk” policy violates its targets’ constitutional rights because its implementation relies on race-based discrimination.

In a defiant press conference at City Hall on Monday afternoon, Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly defended the practice and sought to rebut criticisms of the “stop and frisk” regime made in U.S. District Court Judge Shira Scheindlin’s 195-page ruling and by a wide range

of advocates, city residents, and other critics.

“This is a very dangerous decision made by a judge that I think doesn’t understand policing or what is allowable under the Constitution as determined by the Supreme Court,” Bloomberg said.

Bloomberg and Corporation Counsel Michael Cardoza, the city’s top attorney, repeatedly said at City Hall that the city will appeal the decision and ask for a stay of the accompanying order, which requires the implementation a variety of reforms including the appointment of an independent monitor of some “stop and frisks” and requiring some police officers to wear cameras on the beat.
