How to use frisk in a sentence?

  1. Former NYPD Commissioner Howard Safir:

    As criminals see the police restrained by new laws, policy and regulations that restrict tactics like stop and frisk or broken windows, they no longer fear the police and certainty of arrest, while in the past, they would not carry their weapons because of fear of arrest, they now do, and therefore the opportunity for armed confrontations with police significantly increases.

  2. Bernie Sanders:

    Mr. Bloomberg had policies in New York City of stop-and-frisk that went after African American and Latino people in an outrageous way, i dont think theres any chance of the senator beating President Trump.

  3. Mayor Bloomberg:

    The way you should get the guns out of the kids hands is to throw them up against the wall and frisk them, the way he feels about people is so demeaning. The policy may have been stop and frisk, but the philosophy was to castigate and denigrate people of color, and its a disgrace.

  4. American Civil Liberties Union:

    Stop and frisk is disproportionately concentrated in the black community.

  5. Elizabeth Warren:

    When Mayor Buttigieg says that Mayor Buttigieg apologized, listen very closely to the apology, the language Mayor Buttigieg used is about stop and frisk. It's about how it turned out. No, this isn't about how it turned out. This is about what it was designed to do to begin with.
