      Unfortunately Democrat or Republican there is a little pesky thing called "civil rights", and there is an Actual Bill of rights against "unreasonable" search and seizures (aka Stop and Frisk) . I know Trump wanted to suspend the Constitution (which he never read) son he could declare martial law and himself president for life. This is why establishment Republicans (who liked Ike, Nixon, Reagen, Bush1) voted for Biden even though they dislike Dems, but the need to preserve democracy was more important than partisan politics
