“It’s scary how many guns are out here now,” said a resident of the Brownsville project, who gave her name as Ann and her age as 72.
“They shouldn’t just stop and frisk any of our young black men — but they need to do something about these guns,” she said.
You're in Brady Paradise, you mean to tell us that all those anti-gun-ownership laws don't work?
And this would be great, because the police would never abuse such, would they?
As another woman at the Marcus Garvey Houses said of stop-and-frisk,
“They need to target it. With all these shootings, people getting
killed, do it, but stop and frisk the guys you know from experience
might have a gun, and not some kid who’s trying to better his life and
get out of here.”
Well, y'know, if people stopped making excuses for the gangbangers, and started actually prosecuting them and locking them up with serious sentences, and Comrade Mayor didn't encourage some if this crap, that might just make a difference.
