What’s Wrong With This Picture?

Speaking of matters a little more close to home I came across this article in the “Newark Star Ledger” from someone that is truly not from Newark (http://www.nj.com/newark/index.ssf/2009/03/letters_to_the_editor_22.html).   It bears mentioning and I am glad to have the privilege of doing so.  It’s about how the Police are “supposed” to serve our community and what is really going on in many neighborhoods is interesting.

I first would like to thank Mr. Cherry for his post.  I must add that Mr. Cherry and his forebears were staunch Newarkers at one time and must have left Newark to it’s own devices after the riots of ’67.  Surely they moved on to a “better” place in the state, thus leaving the “new” inhabitants to fend for themselves.  And with the “white” exodus, which changed the complexion of this major citiy, so has the methods for policing this and many other urban cities.

Let’s take for example New York Cities “Stop-and-Frisk Campaign”:

Below is an analysis by the NYCLU which revealed that innocent New Yorkers have been subjected to police stops and street interrogations more than 4 million times since 2002, and that black and Latino communities continue to be the overwhelming target of these tactics. Nearly nine out of 10 stopped-and-frisked New Yorkers have been completely innocent, according to the NYPD’s own reports:

  • In 2002, New Yorkers were stopped by the police 97,296 times.
    80,176 were totally innocent (82 percent).
  • In 2003, New Yorkers were stopped by the police 160,851 times.
    140,442 were totally innocent (87 percent).
    77,704 were black (54 percent).
    44,581 were Latino (31 percent).
    17,623 were white (12 percent).
    83,499 were aged 14-24 (55 percent).
  • In 2004, New Yorkers were stopped by the police 313,523 times.
    278,933 were totally innocent (89 percent).
    155,033 were black (55 percent).
    89,937 were Latino (32 percent).
    28,913 were white (10 percent).
    152,196 were aged 14-24 (52 percent).
  • In 2005, New Yorkers were stopped by the police 398,191 times.
    352,348 were totally innocent (89 percent).
    196,570 were black (54 percent).
    115,088 were Latino (32 percent).
    40,713 were white (11 percent).
    189,854 were aged 14-24 (51 percent).
  • In 2006, New Yorkers were stopped by the police 506,491 times.
    457,163 were totally innocent (90 percent).
    267,468 were black (53 percent).
    147,862 were Latino (29 percent).
    53,500 were white (11 percent).
    247,691 were aged 14-24 (50 percent).
  • In 2007, New Yorkers were stopped by the police 472,096 times.
    410,936 were totally innocent (87 percent).
    243,766 were black (54 percent).
    141,868 were Latino (31 percent).
    52,887 were white (12 percent).
    223,783 were aged 14-24 (48 percent).
  • In 2008, New Yorkers were stopped by the police 540,302 times.
    474,387 were totally innocent (88 percent).
    275,588 were black (53 percent).
    168,475 were Latino (32 percent).
    57,650 were white (11 percent).
    263,408 were aged 14-24 (49 percent).
  • In 2009, New Yorkers were stopped by the police 581,168 times.
    510,742 were totally innocent (88 percent).
    310,611 were black (55 percent).
    180,055 were Latino (32 percent).
    53,601 were white (10 percent).
    289,602 were aged 14-24 (50 percent).
  • In 2010, New Yorkers were stopped by the police 601,285 times.
    518,849 were totally innocent (86 percent).
    315,083 were black (54 percent).
    189,326 were Latino (33 percent).
    54,810 were white (9 percent).
    295,902 were aged 14-24 (49 percent).
  • In 2011, New Yorkers were stopped by the police 685,724 times.
    605,328 were totally innocent (88 percent).
    350,743 were black (53 percent).
    223,740 were Latino (34 percent).
    61,805 were white (9 percent).
    341,581 were aged 14-24 (51 percent).
  • In the first three months of 2012, New Yorkers were stopped by the police 203,500 times
    181,457 were totally innocent (89 percent).
    108,097 were black (54 percent).
    69,043 were Latino (33 percent).
    18,387 were white (9 percent).

Police stops in suburban areas would have to be huge in proportion to what is going on in urban America, if policing is dispensed failry.  But where are the statitics that would back up the fair dispensation of police policies across New York and it’s environs.  With “Whites” comprising almost 75% of the population and let’s say that 75 percent of New Yorkers are white, then the amount of stops proportionatley sould have yeilded approximately over 556,000 whites being stopped.  This amount is just staying consistent with the nine percent stop ration for whites per their own reporting.

What I have surmised is that the New York City Police are practicing “Network Marketing” techniques that is purely a numbers game.  Those of us in the MLM field need to take a hint from the techniques used by the NYPD because they have increased their stop ratios, while the arrests percentage has only risen marginally.  What kind of growth would your Network Marketing business acheive if it experienced the EXPLOSIVE growth, vis a vis the amount of stops , versus the increased number of arrests New York experiences?  Would a 13 percent increase in lead conversion do wonders for your business?  New Yorkers have a wonderful Network Marketing opportunity in the New York City Police Department.
