    Heres a quote going around of Bloomberg talking about the NY stop and frisk law that has been credited for lowering gun crime in NY. Bloomberg has since denounced the law

    In the audio clip, Bloomberg said the vast majority of murderers and murder victims "fit one M.O. — you could just take the description, Xerox it and pass it out to all the cops. They are male, minorities, 15 to 25 [years old]."

    "One of the unintended consequences is people say, 'Oh my God, you are arresting kids for marijuana. They're all minorities,'" Bloomberg said during a talk at The Aspen Institute. "That's true. Why? Because we put all the cops in the minority neighborhoods. Yes, that's true. Why do you do it? Because that's where all the crime is."

    "And the way you get the guns out of the kids' hands is to throw them up against the wall and frisk them, And then they start ... 'Oh I don't want to get caught.' So they don't bring the gun. They still have a gun, but they leave it at home."




    Even the vile left knows the truth about crime but they lie publically to get minority votes.

    it's a self-fulfilling prophecy of economics, and it has nothing to do with race.

    do you think criminality is somewhat determined by race?

    Preaching to the choir with his advert about women's reproductive rights. I agree with that.

    "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics."

    correlation isn't causation, unless you can explain how race is an indicator of criminality.

    and we haven't even started on bias and the 'self-fulfilling prophecy' part.

    Not to be overly nitpicky, but although correlation doesn't equal causation, correlation does equal an indicator.

    but you have to isolate and control variables to distinguish what it's indicating

    Only if you're talking about causation specifically. Correlative factors generally make pretty good general indicators. Ie, brightly colored animals are often poisonous.

    You're correct, race is not the cause, and people who say it is are actual racist, not the fake kind the DNC calls anyone who disagrees with them.

    At the same time no thinking person can deny there is a crime problem in the black community. This is due to a myriad of cultural issues, the main one being single parent homes. You can track the rise in unemployment and crime right alongside the rise in single parent homes, caused by "well meaning" welfare programs that incentivized just that.

    From the ny daily news

    "In New York City, in 2015, blacks made up 63.7% of murder and non-negligent homicide victims and 62.1% of suspects. Hispanics made up 27.6% of victims and 29.6% of suspects.

    Add them up: 91.3% of homicide victims in New York City were black or Hispanic. 91.7% of homicide suspects were black or Hispanic.

    Feel free to ding Bloomberg for being off by four to five percentage points"

    Lol. Let's bring back stop and frisk. Let's make our cities safer. Let's stop ignoring facts on paper cause it hurts people's feelings

    Data for Mike: Let’s get some facts straight on race and crime

    Not really. But people need to be open to facts so we can start a dialogue.

    Seems strange that every issue on earth that's been resolved started by acknowledging the problem. Then the discussion starts and hopefully a plan can be developed.

    How many country, pop, rock, techno musicians have been shot this year? How many arrested for guns? How many killed? How many tried for murder?
