Bloomberg Criticizes Bronx District Attorney for Stance on Stop and Frisk

Mayor Bloomberg has asked the Bronx District attorney to reconsider the decision to halt prosecution of unwarranted arrests during stop-and-frisk, reports the  NY Post.

“If you want to bring crime back to New York, this is probably a good way to do it, ” said Bloomberg.

The District Attorney’s position is meant to avoid unnecessary prosecution on people who have been arrested for trespassing on public housing projects unless the arresting police can verify the arrest was legitimate.

The decision was made after many complaints that housing tenants and their guests were being stopped and arrested for no legitimate reason.
