Mayor de Blasio Announces New York’s Stop-and-Frisk Appeal Is on Hold

Daniel Beekman and Annie Karni, NY Daily News, January 30, 2014

Delivering on a campaign pledge, Mayor de Blasio on Thursday moved to withdraw the city’s appeal of federal Judge Shira Scheindlin’s sweeping ruling that declared the Police Department’s use of stop-and-frisk policing unconstitutional.

In a court filing, the de Blasio administration asked that the appeal—filed last year by the previous mayor, Michael Bloomberg—be put on hold so the case can be officially settled.

The request means that the city now accepts what Bloomberg did not—that the Police Department abused stop-and-frisk policing, which led to racial profiling.

The de Blasio administration said that it has negotiated a settlement with the plaintiffs that includes one key change to Scheindlin’s ruling: Instead of a court-appointed monitor overseeing the NYPD’s use of stop-and-frisk policing indefinitely, the oversight would end after three years.


De Blasio’s new Police Commissioner Bill Bratton pledged to develop a plan of action to help the NYPD collaborate better with affected communities.

    New York is gonna be the next Detroit, and I can’t wait !

    • Oil Can Harry

      Well I can sure wait since I live here.

      The only good thing is that the end of stop and frisk is happening at the beginning of our new mayor Herman Munster’s reign of error.

      That will provide a neat comparison of crime stats for New York before and after stop and frisk ended.

      • Lewis33

        Facts mean nothing to these people. I could have swore they already have before and after stats that were totally ignored. Now, wait for a couple of Greenbergs to get shuffled off to the morgue and see what happens.

        • NoMosqueHere

          What about Greenburghs? No?

      • Spartacus

        Move someplace else .

        • NoMosqueHere

          To where should we move? Transylvania? Are you trying to rent out your crypt?

          • Spartacus

            No, I’m afraid that’s already reserved .

          • Diana Moon Glampers

            Transylvania is actually lovely and populated by Europeans. It actually is my retirement plan.

          • Pretty scenery.

    • NeanderthalDNA

      I guess I should look at the next story before I post. Posted something about this on th “crazy” (typical that is) negro who punched elderly women “in defense” story, lol…

      The downward spiral into Detoilet for the big apple is underway!

    • OhWow

      Don’t alienate the New York metro area. A lot of us believe the same exact things many on here believe. Unfortunately you are correct that he will drive NYC into the ground. But there are lots of good white people here who will suffer.

      • benvad

        That’s too bad, maybe Howard Stern can take the blame for this. He’s always pushed a lefty agenda.

      • Svigor

        Lol, don’t alienate the NYC metro area? I’m afraid that ship has sailed.

    • Of course! Next in the news, the murder rate of black “yoofs” in NYC skyrockets. Mayor de Blasio blames “racism”, “food deserts” and “global warming”.

  • D.B. Cooper

    If you are white, and you live in New York, AND you voted for either the Democratic Party or a RINO member of the GOP, you get what you deserve.
    Just keep your nasty selves out of my state, and we will do just fine.

    • benvad

      Where would that be?

  • Puggg

    Someone grab the popcorn.

    All we’ll be able to do is sit back and watch New York become Detroit.

  • bigone4u

    Since anyone with even half a brain knows that crime will now increase in NYC, I present my short list of preferred victims.
    *UN diplomats
    *the Mayor and his family
    *any member of the Clinton family
    *any black politician
    *Reverend Al Sharpton
    *any employee of MSNBC and NBC news, especially Chris Matthews
    *Alec Baldwin
    I wish no one any harm, but if there’s suffering, then these should suffer the most by Karmic law. Feel free to add to my short list.

    • Anyone with a crooked hat, a gaudy/loud/hideous/shiny necklace or gold teef grills.

      • Those will be the first. Young black male murder victims almost always have young black male killers. Since Mayor de Blasio knows this, he clearly believes that political grandstanding is more important than the genuine living conditions for the people of New York City.

    All the urban areas will be ground zero for out-of-control crime and chaos eventually, and New York City will be among the first ten that will have to call in the National Guard.

    It will be interesting to see what kind of fighting develops between the Muslims and blacks in Detroit, and the Hispanics and blacks in Los Angeles, with the battle lines probably drawn between Hispanics and blacks in Chicago.

    The Asians in Philadelphia and California will have to form pockets of militias as they did during the LA riots, but the blacks will be armed too this time.

    • Most black “gangstas” don’t own centerfire rifles. They also can’t shoot very well. Even in the service, they get REMF MOS jobs. I wouldn’t be very worried if a negro who had been a cook while he was in the navy was shooting at me from out past 300 yards.

  • willbest

    Liberals will probably just blame the increased crime rate on retaliation against the previous totalitarian regime, and that if they double down on niceness it will payoff and return the city to order.

  • Truth Teller

    Scheindlin. The name says it all. I hope that every White person in the city and suburbs who donated money to and voted for the commie gets robbed and beaten by one of their beloved blacks.

  • judenjager

    No such luck. The squids have 24/7 NYPD protection courtesy of the taxpayer.

  • JohnEngelman

    In the 1970’s New York City was known as “the mugging capital of the United States.” Movies like “The Warriors,” “Death Wish,” and “Escape from New York” portrayed New York as a crime ridden asphalt jungle.

    Stop and frisk and race profiling policies changed that. Now I am afraid things are going to change back.
