The Hunted and Hated, New York's "Stop and Frisk" Policy | A New View on Racial Profiling | Debate in Comment's Section! 

I normally agree with the police and support them, but this video offers an in-depth look into racial profiling. I found this video while browsing through other sites, and was not expecting to care too much about it; hopefully you will be as engaged as I was when viewing it.
I would like this post to obtain as much publicity as possible, so we can get some good debates going in the comments section.

I believe that racial profiling generally works, but hopefully this video can broaden our perspectives.

I don't think that cops are inherently bad, but there are obviously rotten eggs; this video leaves out a lot of information, and there are, of course, many factors that go into play.

I know that this video has evoked deep thoughts regarding how minorities feel, for me, and I hope everyone takes the time to watch, enjoy and hopefully learn something.

I am going to let there be open debate in the comments; I refuse to delete comments unless they are spam. I would ask that the LL community police themselves and be respectful to each other, since this is can be a very vocal topic.

Feel free to write your own prompts below, respond to mine, or share your thoughts.
