Stop The “Stop And Frisk”
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, with tensions finally calming down after the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman saga, another racial controversy erupted.
 
A federal judge recently ruled that New York City’s “Stop and Frisk” policy was unconstitutional and racially discriminatory, as a majority of those detained, questioned and frisked by police were black or Latino who, for the most part, weren’t doing anything illegal.

Defending Alex Rodriguez
No curveball here. Boston Red Sox pitcher Ryan Dempster is a coward.
