I guess little is known about the 1968 Supreme Court case called THE TERRY STOP. In that law it is OK to stop a suspicious person and search him for weapons. New York City has been using this little known federal law and their gun violence is almost nil.
Yes civil rights people are complaining that it is unconstitutional to just stop someone and search them. That is not true. The Supreme Court says it was constitutional just as long as certain prerequisites are met.
Look up the Terry Stop on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terry_stop (right-click and open in new window). Read through it and see that this is what Hartford and New Haven CT should be doing to control their gun violence.
And if you don't want to actually TOUCH a suspect, use a metal detector wand or a portable magnetic portal in a police trailer. All I'm saying is just don't let these cretins walk around Hartford pointing guns at cops or doing drive-bys at schools and getting away (Actually happened in Hartford)!
The Hartford Mayor worrying about rude Police dispatchers should be the least of his worries. The FBI says that Hartford streets are controlled by West Indian gang members. Why can't they use the Terry Stop with magnetic wands much like how NYC is doing right now?
Think about it!
Read my past articles first to get an idea:
Enjoy! Tell your congress person, legislator, mayor or our governor to look here too please.
