We all know that numbers don’t lie, but Ray Kelly and Bloomberg think they do! Hit the jump for the full story.

It looks like the Politic is coming out of Michael Bloomberg. He and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly seem to think that minorities are under stopped, you know with the whole stop and frisk act. Mind you, 97% of the 31,000 people that were stopped last year were either black or hispanic. New York City Council passed two bills created to solve some of the problems caused by stop and frisk. One would place an inspector general inside of the NYPD; the other, known as the “racial profiling bill,” would give residents the power to sue the police department for profiling them. But, Peep this, Bloomberg wants to veto both of them. “The racial profiling bill is just so unworkable, Nobody racially profiles, now is not the time to have a social experiment especially with the city’s murder rate decreasing.”

Bloomberg went on:

“There is this business, there’s one newspaper and one news service, they just keep saying, ‘Oh it’s a disproportionate percentage of a particular ethnic group,'” he went on. “That may be, but it’s not a disproportionate percentage of those who witnesses and victims describe as committing the murder. In that case, incidentally, I think we disproportionately stop whites too much and minorities too little.”
