US District Court Judge Shiraz Scheindlin recently ruled that NYC’s stop-and-frisk policy, which has helped to dramatically reduce gun violence and crimes, is unconstitutional. Judge Scheindlin imposed draconian restrictions on the police and formerly “low information” voters are quite happy with the Judge:
“Thugs with guns think they’re the ones calling the shots on the streets in the wake of the anti-NYPD stop-and-frisk ruling.
“You can’t stop me! You can’t do that no more! There are new rules!” suspect Steven Sidbury, 21, allegedly yelled at officers as they approached him in crime-riddled East New York last week.”
. . . One source predicted that there will be more bloodshed in the streets as criminals fearlessly carry their weapons instead of stashing them somewhere — and fire in the heat of the moment.
“They’re going to carry their guns, and if they get into a fight, they’re going to shoot right away,’’ the source warned.
“Every single [perp] I have encountered is very happy about the ruling,’’ a Manhattan police source said.
“It is a very common thought now amongst perps that stop-question-and-frisk infringes on their rights to carry concealed guns.”
You can be sure that Scheindlin and the pandering progressive politicians will refuse all responsibility for the coming NYC crime wave.
