Bloomberg’s Too Little, Too Late Stop and Frisk Apology Tour
FEBRUARY 13, 2020

By Amy Goodman & Denis Moynihan

Five million. That’s the number of times that New York City police stopped people during the “stop and frisk” program when billionaire Michael Bloomberg was mayor. “Stop and frisk” is when police stop a person, usually force their hands against a wall, and aggressively pat them down, looking for a weapon or contraband. This week, the former mayor, now rising in the polls as a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, issued an apology for “stop and frisk,” saying that he “inherited the police practice.” But the fact is after Bloomberg became mayor in 2002, NYPD “stop and frisks” increased by 700 percent. The vast majority of targeted were black and brown youth. Statistics showed that, among all those stopped, whites proved to be twice as likely to be carrying a gun. Despite that, only 10% of those frisked were white.

The policy terrorized communities of color across New York City. Outraged citizens marched by the thousands, once converging on Bloomberg’s mansion on the Upper Eastside. The Center for Constitutional Rights finally prevailed in a lawsuit in 2013, as Bloomberg’s third term as mayor was nearing its end. “This is an indirect form of racial profiling,” U.S. District Court Judge Shira Scheindlin wrote in her opinion. “It leads NYPD officers to stop blacks and Hispanics who would not have been stopped if they were white.”

Scheindlin imposed strict reforms on the NYPD with a court monitor to ensure implementation. The Bloomberg administration appealed and won a stunning legal victory: not only did the appeals court issue a stay of the ordered reforms, allowing the NYPD to continue to stop and frisk during the appeal but, in an unusual move, the court also removed Scheindlin from the case. The Bloomberg administration was also behind attempts to impugn Scheindlin’s reputation by shopping around media stories that she had an “anti-cop” bias.

Ultimately, Bill de Blasio won his race to succeed Bloomberg, and his administration dropped the appeal. The use of stop and frisk has fallen precipitously under de Blasio, and the monitor Judge Scheindlin appointed is still overseeing the NYPD’s compliance with the court’s orders.

A year ago, Michael Bloomberg was clear that he wasn’t going to run for president. He said he couldn’t “unless I was willing to change all my views and go on what CNN called an apology tour.” Jump ahead to November, and he changed his tune. Addressing predominantly African American parishioners at the Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn, Bloomberg said, referring to stop and frisk, “Back then, I was wrong, and I am sorry.” A week later, he announced his candidacy for president.

Bloomberg’s apologies continue. On Tuesday, he released a statement on stop and frisk that read, “as part of our effort to stop gun violence it was overused. By the time I left office, I cut it back by 95 percent, but I should’ve done it faster and sooner. I regret that and I have apologized — and I have taken responsibility for taking too long to understand the impact it had on black and Latino communities.”

Bloomberg issued his latest apology only after two damning recordings surfaced. One, from a talk he gave at the Aspen Institute in 2015, captured Bloomberg saying,

“Ninety-five percent of murders–murderers and murder victims fit one M.O. You can just take the description, Xerox it, and pass it out to all the cops. They are male, minorities, 16-25. That’s true in New York, that’s true in virtually every city (inaudible)…Put those cops where the crime is, which means in minority neighborhoods…the way you get the guns out of the kids’ hands is to throw them up against the wall and frisk them.”

The audio was discovered by journalist Benjamin Dixon. “It was online. It was hiding in plain sight,” Dixon us on the Democracy Now! news hour. “Bloomberg’s team actually requested that the video from the Aspen Institute not be released. It had been online for five years…I felt like people needed to hear his voice say these things.”

In another clip from WOR radio in New York in 2013, Bloomberg said, “They just keep saying, ‘Oh, it’s a disproportionate percentage of a particular ethnic group’…I think we disproportionately stop whites too much and minorities too little.”

Up until his presidential campaign, Michael Bloomberg stood by his guns–the NYPD guns pointed at the heads of New York City’s communities of color. Now that he needs these very communities to vote for him across the country, he has apologized for targeting them. This is too little, too late, Mayor Bloomberg. Sorry.

I really hope Trump wins even-though I no longer trust him and I fear what’s coming regardless.

But, you should prepare yourself that Bloomberg could win by more than a narrow or wide margin because of numerous factors working against Trump.

Remember, in this camp we’ve been preparing for Plans B and C in case Trump does lose or when he leaves in the coming years.

Try to focus on false flags

Things set in motion from decades ago
Dark forces with dark money from unknown places that can easily remove him if they really wanted to.

The only chance, and I mean ONLY CHANCE, that Bloomberg has would be if there is a brokered convention. If the DNC decides to sabotage Sander's campaign such as they did in 2016 he might have an outside chance. Bloomberg's own history will not win over Democrats no matter how much he spends. In fact, Democrats don't want another billionaire as president. And they don't want anyone who they think is trying to buy their election. It just ain't gonna happen.

Wrong. I didn't say that at all. I'm saying that DNC would rather have just about anyone other than Mayor Bloombooger or Bernie win the nomination. They would settle for Pocahontas, Biden, or Booty Gig, before Sanders. Heck, even Tom Steyer has a better chance than Mayor Mike. Currently, Amy Klobuchar is their newest darling, but that all changes from week to week. There is a reason we don't usually elect Senators as President... They have a mixed legislative record that can be used against them. Unless something of monumental repercussions was to occur, Trump is going to beat any Candidate. They don't know what to do about Trump or how to campaign against him. Maybe Klobuchar has had the best results so far. But that is because she hasn't been sighted in his crosshairs.

Yep, in the meantime and running up to Election Day you should start focusing on plans B and C

Find your local Militias or create one...
create a community group
Or join one
Or something

Know who all your neighbors are, go to door to door and ask people if they’re Rep or Dem and keep track of the Enemies ...

Put it on the map, hang it on the wall and circle their homes...
Make a list
Circle all the Police stations in a 10 and 25 miles radius of your home.
Same with National Guard armories etc..
Bases..
Airports
City centers

All these things are part of your tactical logistics and ready response preparedness.

The worst is yet to come my friend, sad but true... you gotta know these are the end day of peace in America unless Trump does something serious.
