Unconstitutional Stop and Frisk Will Save Chicago, Says Law and Order President

Share

President Donald Trump declared a reprieve today for Rod Rosenstein, saying he has no plans to fire his deputy attorney general whose future has been the source of intense speculation for two weeks.

The stop-and-frisk policy in New York City is a practice of temporarily detaining and questioning and sometimes searching people for weapons or contraband. The crime spree is a bad blight on that city and we'll do everything possible to get it done.

What Trump failed to note, and what The Associated Press reported, is that Chicago's homicide rate and number of shooting victims are down compared to this time previous year. He said returning to an era of rampant and unrestricted stop-and-frisk, the kind that was ruled unconstitutional in New York City, would be "antithetical" to the "strong, pro-active, professional police department" the city is building.

Trump said in 2016, a law enforcement officer was assaulted on an average of every nine minutes in the United States.

"I think we'll be treated very fairly".

Chicago police said last week that there have been 102 fewer homicides and almost 500 fewer shooting victims in the city this year, compared to the first nine months of 2017.

Kelly was present for Monday's conversation between Rosenstein and Trump, the White House said, as was Rosenstein's top deputy at the Justice Department, Ed O'Callaghan.

Boarding Marine One Monday morning, the President told members of the press that he and Rosenstein will be "talking on the plane" and noted that they "actually have a very good relationship".

In a statement to the Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel sought to shoot down the president's idea as out of touch with the city's real needs. This year, with nearly three months to go, 419 people were murdered in Chicago, according to the Chicago Tribune's homicide database.

Patrol Officer Mark Dallas of the Dixon, Illinois, Police Department stopped an active shooter in a high school before the suspect could harm any of the students.

'Politicians who spread this unsafe anti-police sentiment make life easier for criminals and more risky for law-abiding citizens, and they also make it more unsafe for police, and it must stop, and it must stop now, ' he said. Whether it's law enforcement or military. "You'd be the first to know", he said, reports The Hill.

Trump also heralded recent declines in unemployment as a positive step toward lower crime rates.
