Hopefully he broke up with the violent boyfriend....

Re: We sure could use a little GOOD news today!

Re: Is Stop-And-Frisk a violation of the the 4th amendment?

Just being present in a neighborhood is not probable cause for suspicion. That is, however, what is being treated as probable cause to frisk.
