Stop And Frisk And Sleepless Night

Last night I did not sleep well thinking about Stop and Frisk. I am white and I was trying to understand how I would feel if I was black and lived in a part of the country where Stop and Frisk was enforced. I failed. I could not remove all of the history and experiences that I had as a white man from my thought process.

After about thirty minutes I took a different approach and tried to assume a world where everyone was of the same race, national origin and social/economic background. This helped my thought process. If, in this fantasy world, there was a certain section of a nation or city that had an extremely high crime rate that was resulting in robberies, assaults and killings what would you want to do?
