'I Was Wrong': Bloomberg Apologizes For Controversial Stop-And-Frisk Policy. LOL, a desperate and politically dead Bloomberg admits he was wrong on “Stop and Frisk”. What a jerk. He attacked the Courts when a judge told him he was violating the Constitution. I can’t stand phony hypocrites like Bloomberg. He is lying. He made a political decision to sacrifice the rights of Blacks and Hispanics back then to appease is more conservatove White supporters and he now wants our support for his ill advised presidential run. He really thinks we are fools. Go back to hanging out with your golfing buddy Donald Trump.
