Trump’s Contempt for Fourth Amendment

Kurt Nimmo

Donald Trump has done it again.

He displayed his contempt for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

In Cleveland on Wednesday, he reasserted his support for “stop-and-frisk.”

Earlier in the week he voiced his contempt for Sixth and Eighth amendments.

From Reuters:

U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Wednesday he would consider using “stop-and-frisk” policing methods to cut crime if elected, according to two people who attended a Fox News “town hall” taping at a predominantly African-American church in Cleveland…

At the town hall, Trump praised stop-and-frisk, according to an excerpt of the interview released by Fox News.

He made his statement in response to an audience member’s question about what the New York businessman would do to reduce crime in predominantly black communities across the nation…

Trump said he liked stop-and-frisk because it had worked well during the administration of New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a Republican who served from 1996 to Dec. 31, 2001 who is now a major Trump supporter. The tactic was supported by Giuliani’s successor, Michael Bloomberg.

A federal judge ruled the NYPD tactic is unconstitutional.

The Center for Constitutional Rights remarked on August 12, 2013:

In a landmark decision today, a federal court found the New York City Police Department’s highly controversial stop-and-frisk practices unconstitutional. In her thorough, 198-page ruling, Judge Shira Scheindlin found the NYPD’s practices to violate New Yorkers’ Fourth Amendment rights to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures and also found that the practices were racially discriminatory in violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

It is simply amazing Libertarians have decided to vote for this guy.
