Trump: I’d Use ‘Stop-and-Frisk’ to End Violence in Black Communities

“Any politician who would go to a black community and say stop-and-frisk is the solution to your problems is showing no respect for the intellectual capacity of that community,” Jeff Robinson, deputy legal director at the American Civil Liberties Union and a policing expert for the organization, told The Daily Beast.

“[Mr. Trump’s] message here is that in order to save the black community, we must destroy it," he continued. "I don’t know if Mr. Trump has ever been stopped and frisked by the police, but this concept that, ‘Oh, it’s just a nice, little friendly conversation...and it’s nothing to get upset about,’ that’s a concept that people who have never been through a stop-and-frisk experience with a police officer would think. Any politician who would suggest this as a solution has a serious credibility problem.”
