Bloomberg remains firm on stop and frisk policy despite march


For his part, Bloomberg defended the street checks and insisted that neither he nor New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly will permit abuses.

“I understand why some people want us to stop making stops. Innocent people who are stopped can be treated disrespectfully, and that is just not acceptable. Commissioner Kelly won’t tolerate it and neither will I,” he said.

 It was a fine demonstration those people put on, and I'm sure Bloomberg watched occasionally, with some amusement, but until those people conduct their demonstration with shouldered rifles, axes, clubs, and swords, Bloomberg isn't going to give it much concern.  Politicians only really listen when they feel they're in danger.
