Stings in New York Picture
In Harlem, New York there is a lot of crime going on from burglary to prostitution. There is so much crime that the NYPD are coming up with new ways to stop it. In this picture there a food shop owned by immigrants that was shut down by the police because of stings.One of the ways are stings on companies that they believe are threats to the community. The problem is that these searches are warrantless which is illegal and they are being done to mostly immigrants. They feel like their constitutional rights are being violated. I think if the police is going to search for someone’s property they should at least have a warrant and shouldn’t have to resort to stings or warrantless searches.
One reason that these stings should stop is because they are illegal. Usually when the police have to search something they would need a warrant to proceed with that search. If that is not done then they cannot do anything to that property. Just because the cops are undercover doesn’t mean the law doesn’t exist. If a cop needs a warrant to search a property then a civilian definitely needs one. Also the police are collecting fines from civilians. They have collected thousands of dollars from stings. The police shouldn’t be profiting from shutting down peoples businesses.
There are people who think that stings are good for New York. They think Stings are essential to stopping crime. There is also an act in New York called the Nuisance abatement Act, this acts gets rid of businesses or buildings that the police believe are threats to the community. Also considering the amount of time the police have been doing it, it wouldn’t make sense to stop doing all of a sudden.
Stings started back in the 1950’s to stop prostitution in Harlem. The police were having trouble finding criminals so they came up with a new way to stop crime. Stings are when the police go undercover to catch criminals. For example there was a man whose laundry mat was shut down because of suspicion of crimes that the owner didn’t commit. Now he doesn’t have a business for something he didn’t do, which isn’t fair to him at all.
I think the police should come up with a new way to stop crime, without breaking the law or effecting people’s lives. When stings die down the police will gain more trust from citizens instead of being scared of them or hating them.
