“We were wrong: Ending stop and frisk did not end stopping crime”

“As many readers will know, the Daily News Editorial Board supported the NYPD’s strategy as essential to public safety. We also expressed fear that forcing the department to pull back could seriously harm public safety.
Our editorial commenting on Scheindlin’s ruling stated:
“Make no mistake — Scheindlin has put New York directly in harm’s way with a ruling that threatens to push the city back toward the ravages of lawlessness and bloodshed.”
In other pieces, we predicted a rising body count from an increase in murders.
We are delighted to say that we were wrong.”

Is it just me, or is something happening over at Daily News? I feel like I keep getting BLM reading from there. I’m v v curious…
