This is what passes for argument today.
A Federal Judge today ruled that NYC’s Stop and Frisk Violates peoples rights.
In response, NYC’s Top Cop responded “The NYPD is the most racially and ethnically diverse police force in the world, have focused efforts on protecting the poorest.”
See, this is how we argue today. Judge rules on whether it violates rights. The Commisioner responds by talking about racial diversity (read immunity from criticism) and intent to ‘protect the poorest.’
In this country it no longer matters whether what you do is right (antiquated criteria), all that matters is who you are and why you do it. If he “right” people are doing something for “right” reason, how can anything be wrong?
If we stopped and frisked among our ruling class looking for reason, it would not generate many results.
