In yet another spot on piece of hard, investigative journalism done under the Onion flag, the nation’s finest news source pokes fun at New York City’s controversial Stop and Frisk policy.
‘Stop and Frisk’ is a system NYC cops have been using to search random people on the street without a warrant or any real cause- sadly most of the subjects of stop and frisk have been minorities, and civil rights groups have claimed racial profiling is behind the move. NYC’s former Mayor Bloomberg championed the policy, but the incumbent Mayor Bill de Blasio ran on shutting the program down.
“Stop and Kiss” is a joke on the program in which officers not only search citizens, they also give them a small (sometimes large) peck on the lips. The Onion handles it well, keeping it weird, but not offensive. Have a look below:
