    This is a controversial comment; I know it as I post it.

    Stop-and-frisk was / is indefensible.


    One of the rationales / justifications underpinning it was finding and removing illegal weapons, specifically, illegal guns.

    Any suggestions for a more defensible alternative? I got nothin’.
