I’ve always felt that a uniform is only a uniform and the true testament of a HERO is within a persons’ character. This mini-documentary outlines some of the realities and viewpoints of the NYPD’s Stop-and-Frisk Policy.
I’d like to spark a discussion based on the following questions: How valid is Stop-and-Frisk? Why are the people at the top demanding such methods of intimidation vs civility? What change can be made for a better system.

I don’t think police officers (or anyone for that matter) are inherently evil. If that were the case this would likely be a “Featured Villain” post but it’s NOT. I have some questions and am curious what other #HEROES think about this issue. Personally, I think when people are under pressure they are forced to behave in survival mode instead of the moral mode they would otherwise impose. It’s a shame but I know we can do better.
