DETROIT (WWJ) – Is it racial profiling — or just good police work? The controversy surrounding the policy known as “Stop and Frisk” has come under fire in Detroit.

I agree with Josh. From the sounds of the article there are a lot of people who try to resist and will attack officers, it's only a matter of time till an officer gets seriously hurt by someone. I understand the desire for safety, but this might not be the best way to do it.
Maria's comment, September 16, 2013 6:52 PM
This is a great article and I also agree with Josh. There should be another way to better the police work rather than stopping everyone on the streets that look suspicious. It does seem more like a racial profiling to me than anything else. No cop will pull over middle age folks driving a Taurus, but can we say the same about an African American or a Hispanic man in their 20's, driving a nice vehicle? And since a federal judge has already ruled the New York's stop and frisk techniques being unconstitutional, maybe it’s time for the NYPD and DPD to figure out a different way to an effective policing before someone gets seriously hurt.

I don’t know how I feel about this one. One hand, there are some people who need to be frisked for dangerous weapons and contraband, but on the other, at what point are we violating people’s rights? The answer isn’t easy. It could potentially be used as a racial profile or other type of profile technique, but at the same time it could be used to make a difference and possibly deter crime. For this to work, it would have to be used on anyone who legitimately is acting, doing, or providing some evidence of reasonable suspicion (RS) and the cops need to be able to prove the RS beyond a reasonable doubt. To clarify, the officer would only need to be able to prove his reason behind frisking a suspect that makes sense to a reasonable person. Perhaps there could be a type of jury system that could decide if the RS was there or not.

Mark: I'm pretty sure that the original video of this, from several weeks ago, included her being uncooperative when they tried to take her picture/finger prints, and so they brought her back to the cell and he threw her into the cell. I'm the kinda guy that will always defend the cops in a video or scenario until I know exactly what went down and why things happened, but I think it's pretty clear this cop got fed up with a drunk female who was being belligerent and uncooperative, and so he used force on her--maybe more than intended, but he fully intended her to go into that room the hard way. I don't think the gloves should stay on with him in this scenario--he definitely should lose his job over this, at the least, having proven he doesn't have the patience for it.
Mel C's curator insight, November 22, 2013 9:48 AM

This video is very subjective and can easily go either way. It appeared as if the offender grabbed the edges of the door which would show some resistance, but the video does look bad for the cop. It is important to remember that the video clip only shows a very small and narrow part of what really happened in the police station and people should not jump to conclusions and start prosecuting the officer until all the facts are made clear. The offender was intoxicated and just arrested for DUI; some intoxicated people who have been arrested are very resistant, both verbally and physically, and there could be facts similar to this that will exonerate the officer. If there are none and the officer did cross the line then he should be held accountable.

Maria's comment, December 2, 2013 2:41 AM
Well whatever the real story is, the video looks pretty bad and puts the officer in a bad spot. Officers should take care of the offenders in their police departments or in correctional facilities and as much as I think that he probably did not want to send that woman to the hospital, he should have been more careful as to how he handles her and puts her in her cell. It does look like he went over board and I am sure he knows better.

"A fascinating true crime book of one of the most high profile murder cases in Broward County history.

Can officers stop a car if they did not observe erratic driving but are told about it?

Joshua Livingston's comment, October 1, 2013 5:12 PM
This raises some questions of walking on the thin line of officers abusing their powers. Don’t get me wrong I’m glad that they caught people trafficking drugs, but what problems do you think would have been caused if the person hadn’t been carrying when the officer searched the truck. This comes back to the question what weighs more people’s private rights or catching the bad guys?
Sarita Spindler's comment, October 4, 2013 3:18 AM
This definitely puts the decision of the police into the spotlight, because in this case they're not going off of evidence of erratic driving, but the word of somebody who claimed to have been driven off of the road. If they had not found drugs in the truck, they would definitely have been met with more negative responses from the community.
Mel C's curator insight, October 15, 2013 11:09 PM

I think that this is a tricky one, after all police are citizens that just have a bit more training and legal authority. If a complainant wants to report a reckless driver, that complainant should chose to be listed as the complainant and not anonymous. However, most people don’t like getting involved in other people’s business and in the end, it only makes the police job that much harder.

Polygraphs are not reliable and the "results" are not allowed as evidence in a criminal trial in Texas. However, sometimes a prosecutor will request a polygraph in a case with weak evidence and serious charges. If you are facing a polygraph as part of your case, or probation, we can help.
