Appearing with host John Gambling on New York City’s WOR, Mayor Mike Bloombergattacked opponents of the city’s so-called ‘stop and frisk’ program. “It’s society’s job to make sure that no one group is disproportionately represented as potential perpetrators,” Bloomberg said. “I think we disproportionately stop whites too much and minorities too little.”
“Most crimes in our city – serious crimes – are committed by male, minorities 15 -25,” Bloomberg told Gambling. “When it comes to policing, the police have to be able to go out and stop, look for, those that fit the description of a witness or a victim after a crime.”
He said that if the NYPD was unable to do that, they would be turning “over the streets to the criminals.”
