    Police got to be allowed to stop and frisk without a warrant if there is reason to believe that some one is carrying a concealed weapon or contraband.That is the only way we are going to stop some of these crimes ,especially gun related.The AG needs to be a bit more proactive before we are all under siege ,living like the people in Syria, and Iraq.

    @Bobo TheClown!!! If you do that, they will NOT win one of those cases as they will all be deemed unconstitutional, which they will be, the police were fired at from a Car, then they should have riddled that car with Bullets, case Closed and they would have been returning fire.
    They should bring Back Sgt.RAP Brown from Retirement.

    Anyone who shoots at the Police, should be Shot Dead on the Spot. there is Nothing Illegal about that. returning fire in self defence.
