  1. Here we go again. Another young black man’s life taken for no good reason. As NYPD Stop-and-Frisk goes high-tech, it’s time for our young men to protect themselves by not carrying drugs or guns in the streets. It’s a way to protect themselves from trigger-happy police and from their own bad choices.
