A retired federal judge has said that court rulings, not Bloomberg or Biden, were responsible for scaling back New York's controversial "stop and frisk" law.
Former Mayor Mike Bloomberg and former Vice-President Joe Biden, both Democrats, both took credit for curtailing or rolling back New York's controversial stop and frisk law during a recent presidential debate. Bloomberg devised the controversial policy, which was widely heralded by tough-on-crime advocates but criticized as racist by others.
Judge Shira Scheindlin told MSNBC both men were both "totally wrong" to claim credit for ultimately scaling back the law.
Scheindlin says Bloomberg, in fact, expanded the questionable stop and frisk efforts during his tenure as New York mayor and fought the court rulings that ultimately curtailed the practices.

I have wondered how the constitution has been so subverted since at least WW2. I suspect the US government was infiltrated by ideology antithetical to constitutional rule. Islamic sharia law and communism are 2 obviously anti U.S. constitutional belief systems. I can find people in my town who buy into those false panacea, and they are emboldened by media when they should be shamed.
By the way Sheryl, when I say media I am not refering to you, You are truthful not subversive. Thankyou, for having integrity.
I am no Bloomberg supporter by any means. I will stick to my Big Gulp and AR 15 but this is wrong, lazy... Stop and frisk is legal. They got a wacky liberal judge in NY to rule against it. She ran a kangaroo court and railroaded a ruling. DeBlasio refused to appeal and here we are. The fact that Bloomberg is now running against it only shows how unworthy he is of votes. As for Biden... well he is just a nut!
"...Bloomberg devised the controversial policy, which was widely heralded by tough-on-crime advocates but criticized as racist by others...."
This assertion is untrue. Observe, Stop & Frisk was a policing method instituted during the Rudy Giuliani mayoral administration in response to minority community leadership demanding that the police reduce the street crime rampant in NYC during the previous decades, Targeting the demographic that was committing most of those crimes was the most logical policing method possible. The claim that it violates the Constitutional rights of the targeted individuals would only be true if the police officers in a particular STOP didn't actually have reasonable grounds to suspect that the individuals were illegal carrying weapons or otherwise not engaged in a criminal act.
