Supreme Judicial Court broadens police power to use pat frisks in sharply divided opinion
Quote:
BREAKING NEWS ALERT
A sharply divided Supreme Judicial Court Wednesday broadened the legal standard police must use to justify frisking a person suspected of being armed, but they did so by endorsing a concept three dissenting justices say will harm communities of color.

The majority in the 4-3 ruling said New Bedford police were legally justified in pat frisking the rear seat passenger of a car with four men in it, even though it was only the furious reaction by the front seat passenger, a Black man, to being stopped by police that generated the officers’ suspicion a weapon was hidden in the car.

I am in favor of stop and frisk, because anecdotally, I was convinced by Black coworkers from NYC that it worked as far as less crime/more safety on the streets.
As long as officers are properly trained and do not abuse this privilege, I'm good with it.
