Chicago, New York cops spar over policy

Police departments in Chicago and New York are trading barbs after a federal judge ruled that New York City's stop-and-frisk policy was unconstitutional.

"Welcome to Chicago," a Bronx police officer told the New York Post after the ruling, insinuating that crime rates in New York would approach those of the embattled Midwestern city as a result of the ruling, which mandated changes to stop-and-frisk.

    To frisk for weed seems silly to me. Unlicensed firearms are something else.

    Doubtful the guy who said that has ever been to Chicago.
    He wouldn't last one day on the streets here.
    I agree with JIF.
