The Stop and Frisk Debate

Thursday, July 15, 2010

WNYC

Governor Paterson has until Saturday to decide whether to sign a bill banning the NYPD from a database of information about people the police have stopped and frisked, but not arrested. NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly has been lobbying the governor, urging him not to sign the bill, saying the database has been an effective way to track down criminals.

The debate hinges on whether the database infringes on people's basic rights to privacy and if the info has been used to track down suspects in crimes not associated with initial 'stop and frisk' who otherwise may have gotten away.

Kelly, after a few meetings with Paterson, is now pointing to specific cases where information stored in the database lead to the arrests of criminals.

Paterson's decision about whether to sign the bill hinges on that newly presented information, he told WOR's John Gambling.

“Now he brings in evidence of 170 people who were stopped who were later arrested for different violations and crimes," said Paterson. "And we have to determine whether the database assisted in those arrests or not."

Poll: Democrats Down on Unions

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

WNYC

By a margin of 56-36, city voters said in a Quinnipiac poll they feel union workers are not doing enough to help the city during the economic downturn.

Interestingly, it's an opinion shared by most Democrats, who agreed 49-36 percent that union workers aren't doing enough to help the city.

Despite that seeming lack of public support, a majority of voters opposed layoffs for city workers, 68-27 percent. To balance the budget, 48 percent of voters said they support raising taxes. Thirty-six percent said cut services, and 16 percent were undecided.

The poll also had approval ratings for some officials in the city:

Michael Bloomberg's approval rating: 57-33, with 10 percent undecided.

John Liu's approval rating: 47-17, with 36 percent undecided.

Christine Quinn's approval rating: 45-27, with 28 percent undecided

Bill de Blasio's approval rating: 35-17, with 48 percent undecided

Ray Kelly's approval rating: 66-20 with 14 percent undecided

Joel Klein's approval rating: 37-41 with 22 percent undecided

The poll of 1,183 registered voters in the city was conducted from June 21-28 and has a margin of error of 2.9 percent.
