Illegal Searches and Arrests Common in NYC?

Category: News | Posted on Tue, June, 12th 2012 by THCFinder

Much has been made recently – and for good reason – about the incredible amount of arrests that are made in New York City for simple marijuana possession. Beyond that, the vast majority of the arrests are of minority suspects.

 

While marijuana possession is only a “violation” in NYC, having marijuana in public view is a misdemeanor. And many cops have resorted to illegal searches to bring marijuana out into public view, where it becomes a crime.

 

And while politicians are rightly discussing a reduction in the penalty for marijuana possession in public view, should we not also be worried about these illegal searches? The two videos below bring this issue front and center.

 

Shouldn’t we be bothered by the image of a bunch of cops flooding into a random area and arresting minorities? Isn’t that in fact the height of tyranny, and evidence of how far we have fallen in this country?

 

Shouldn’t we be sickened that these things are commonplace? And marijuana is the tool by which this “public view” racism is carried out. Once marijuana is legalized, will it solve the problem of illegal searches? Or will another “substance” be substituted and utilized by law enforcement?
