LAST DAYS OF THE NYC MAYORAL CAMPAIGN
Bill deBlasio, the progressive public advocate, telling supporters at a rally on City Hall steps that under Mayor Bloomberg, New York has been a tale of two cities, that gentrification has left many long-time New Yorkers behind. Joe Lhota, former deputy mayor and ex-MTA boss, says while campaigning in Queens that it's that type of rhetoric that divides the city. DeBlasio arguing that stop and frisk is racially discriminating. Lhota agreeing that no officer should racially profile, but countering that stop and frisk is an effective crime fighting tactic and one should not conclude that every time a cop stops someone to frisk for a weapon he or she is racially profiling.
