Everything you Need To know about stop and frisk in one sentence

New Stop-and-Frisk Report: A Paltry 3% Are Convicted Out of 2.4 Million Stops | Alternet: " 
 New York’s controversial stop-and-frisk policy, hailed by the city’s mayor and police chief as crucial in fighting crime, could boast only a 3% conviction rate between 2009 and 2012, according to a report by the state attorney general released on Thursday."

it gets better ...

Schneiderman's study found that 0.3% of the 2.4m stops led to jail sentences of more than 30 days, and 0.1% led to convictions for violent crime.

But hey, we all FEEL better knowing the police are doing SOMETHING.

We have indeed become the security theater country.
