(Newser) – The Daily Show took a judge's ruling that the NYPD's stop-and-frisk policy is unconstitutional this week ("Good news," says host John Oliver, "if you happen to be a minority who likes walking") as an opportunity to rip into the practice. But correspondent Jessica Williams argues it doesn't go far enough, and would like to see the policy applied to "one of New York's most crime-ridden neighborhoods": Wall Street. "Some of my best friends are white men in suits," says Williams, but "it is a hard fact that white-collar crime is disproportionately committed by people who fit a certain profile. So if you're, say, a white, upper East Side billionaire with ties to the financial community like Michael Bloomberg, you've just got to accept getting roughed up by the police every once in a while."

What's up with Julia Roberts? (Confused? Does it seem to have nothing to do with this? . . . .) Native northerners love to rag on the south and rightly so. But it has been years since racial discrimination was exposed in the New York City Housing authority; and despite the size of NY's black & hispanic community (over 52% http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_New_York_City) the city engages in this profiling. Last night on MSNBC I saw the statistics, that the frisking produced fewer weapons among black or Hispanic than among whites who were frisked. THEIR statistics from THEIR frisking.
