Bafri: Can a repressive police state rein in crime? Answer: Yes, of course. Does our Constitution allow unreasonable search and seizure,i.e.,without Probable Cause? Answer: No, absolutely not. Donald Trump intends to turn every "inner city" into a 4th Amendment Free Zone, a stop and frisk Gestapo police state, in the name of "we have to protect our inner cities." Apparently, he has no concept of the 4th Amendment prohibition against "unreasonable search and seizure," except where it come to the malls of America and schools in general that need protection from lone gun men. If he advocated, let alone implemented, stop and frisk at malls and schools across the land as he does for minority communities, the backlash would send him scurrying back to Trump Tower without time to stop or frisk.
