I actually don't agree entirely with this. In fact, I hate the policy on a whole. I don't believe its a racist concept, but I believe that the way it has been implemented does show a bias against the poor. I've never been stopped or frisked myself, and trust me I fit the description of what some people think would.
This is a poster to make people think and ask themselves about the policy, so please, spread the message and start the debate; are we really OK with our local governments enforcing a policy that makes it legal to randomly stop and search people without reason?
