Flake on why he supporting "Stop & Frisk:" I'm the one burying innocent women and Children
The Rev. Floyd Flake in a TV interview that aired on RNN-TV told journalist Dominic Carter he supports the Mayor's controversial "Stop and Frisk" Police Policy. (which consists of police stopping mostly African American and Latino young men)because he is the one "burying our children from ages four and up, and burying the innocent women and children caught in the middle of gunfire."
It is a compelling argument.
The argument that have also been articulated by groups like the NAACP. Civil Liberties vs Gun Violence.
What breaks my heart, I pick up a copy of Saturday's NY Post, and the gun violence in NYC has happened yet again. Last week, an innocent woman was killed, and before the city could get over that one, it's happened again. Here is the Post story.
It justs breaks your heart, and this is the Post headline: "Boy, 4, still asking for his mommy after witnessing her shooting in Brooklyn."
