Video-NYPD Comish Ray Kelly: ‘No question’ people will die if stop-and-frisk ends

Here’s the simple math: No Stop and Frisk in NYC means criminals, gangbangers, and various other lowlifes will carry their guns without any fear of being stopped by the police.More guns in the street means people will get shot by those guns and die like in Chicago.

Is this hard to understand?

Politico[1] reports New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly says there’s “no question” more people would die if the city’s next mayor ends the controversial stop-and-frisk policy, which a federal judge has struck down as unconstitutional.
“No question about it, violent crime will go up,” Kelly said Sunday on: NBC’s “Meet the Press: when host David Gregory asked if more people would die.ray kelly[2]

Kelly defended the policy as part of every police officer’s toolbox, not a specific program aimed at targeting young black and Hispanic men. The federal judge called the program “indirect racial profiling.”

“Again, this is not a program,” Kelly said. “This is something that’s integral to policing. This happens throughout America at any police jurisdiction.:  You have to do it.

Officers have to have the right of inquiry, if they see some suspicious behavior. So I can assure you, this is not just a New York City issue.:  It’s an issue throughout America.:  And this case has to be appealed in my judgment because it will be taken as a template and have significant impact in policing throughout America.”

The commissioner also defended the program as saving minority lives, not targeting them as suspects.

“We need some balance here,”: he said. “The stark reality is that violence is happening disproportionately in minority communities.:  And that unfortunately is in big cities throughout America. We have record low numbers of murders in New York City, record low numbers of shootings, we’re doing something right to save lives.”

The truth that Progressives ignore is that in citieslike Chicago, Philadelphia and Detroit need Stop and Frisk to save the lives of African Americans that are being shot dead in droves! But instead to suit their political agenda of crying out racial profiling, they prefer for those lives to be lost for the sake of political correctness. Citizens have to choose between either political correctness or safety. You can’t have both and the murder rate in Chicago and other cities without Stop and frisk proves the point.
