This may be a very broad question, but how does this apply to NYC’s stop & frisk procedures? They seem to approach it a tad… differently.
Nathan’s written a couple of articles on that in the past. I can’t remember the address, but I think a decent summary (if I read it right) would be that he can’t see how it could possibly be mistaken for constitutional, and even if it was it’s a horrible idea anyway that fosters resentment and an adverserial attitude with cops more than anything else. Hopefully I’ve got that right; I’d hate to put words into his mouth.
Here you go.
Ah yes, good ol DWB offenses. Driving While Black.
