My Commentary: Repulsive…

In the article, Bloomberg states, “While I’m sitting there waiting for [the minister] to introduce me, he said to his congregation, ‘You know, if every one of you stopped and frisked your kid before they went out at night, the mayor wouldn’t have to do it,’” Mr. Bloomberg said. “And so I knew I was going to be OK with that audience.”
