Former Mayor Bloomberg Reverses Stop Frisk Stance


If he’s not going to officially become a presidential candidate, he’s sure acting like one.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is apologizing for the controversial "stop-and-frisk" policy when he was in office. Speaking at a Black church New York yesterday, Bloomberg said his office shouldn't acted sooner and faster to cut the stops.

He said he realizes now that he was wrong. This, after years of defending the policy of detaining, questioning and searching people on the streets for weapons and other contraband. The practice came under fire for largely targeting minorities.

So far, Bloomberg has filed paperwork for the Arkansas and Alabama Democratic primaries as part of a possible 2020 presidential bid.
