As I disagree to Stop and Frisk I do believe that it has taken guns off the street. ATF we need more police for the community not the AFT. Then we want to throw our hands up about POT. Mr. Thompson puts your priority in place.

IT IS INSANE THAT POLICE CARRY GUNS AND USE THEM WITH IMPUNITY. THE COP IS NOT THE JUDGE FOR AN EXECUTION THEY SHOULD USE KEVLAR NETS OR SOMETHING AN INTELLIGENT SPECIES WOULD USE.
PRIVATE PRISON CORPORATIONS ARE GETTING $150,000 PER MARIJUANA SLAVE PER YEAR. MARIJUANA CURES CANCER AND 500 OTHER DISEASES.

I would like to know if DA Nominee Thompson would continue the current Project Safe Surrender Program supported by Brooklyn DA Hynes. It is very successful and brings the Brooklyn community and congregations in step with local law enforcement.

I would love to hear Mr. Thompson talk about his proposal for a Labor Unit in the DA's office and his plan to combat wage theft in Brooklyn.
