    Bring back stop and frisk?

      They do that now only they don't call it stop and frisk now that just come up with anything that fits the situation to search you. Don't you notice every single time you read an article in this newspaper and the cops find a gun or drugs in the car they say they smelled a strong smell of ???? ( come on guess of what ?). That's right….. MARIJUANA. And if your walking they will say they saw bulge in your pocket of waist looked like a gun or my personal favorite you fit the description of someone who attempted to rob someone or broke into a car.. Believe me they have their own ready made version of stop and frisk they always have not to mention that stop and frisk was in New York never here in Jersey. Paterson cops are lazy they only show up for the major crimes they don't understand that the major crimes are directly linked to quality of life crimes because that's how it all starts. How do you think Rudy Giuliani cleaned up New York City ? All he really did was focus on quality of life crimes and he cleaned up the street no more people hanging out no more prostitution on the street and from there the big crimes went down. NYC cops got their slogan and Paterson Police slogannis laxy corrupt and over paid
