Twitter Goes in on DJ Envy for Supporting Stop-and-Frisk
The first presidential debate between Republican and Democratic nominees Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton was held last night, with heated discussion ranging from the economy to foreign policy. On the subject of domestic violence, Trump recommended bringing back Stop and Frisk, a policy carried out by the NYPD in recent years. Discussing the debates this morning, Power 105's The Breakfast Club offered their one-of-a-kind perspective , with DJ Envy agreeing with Trump's proposal.
"They got a lot of guns off the streets," he says in the above clip. "The way that the NYPD was doing it was unconstitutional they didn’t so it the way that it was supposed to be done, that’s why they pulled it from New York...They said if it was done the right way [the effectiveness] probably would be a lot higher."
The show then invited listeners to weigh in on the discussion, with one calling Envy, whose father is a retired police officer, out for his stance. "Yeah I believe stop and frisk works in certain areas," Envy then said. "Especially areas where crime is high you should absolutely positively check and see who’s on the streets. There shouldn’t be kids and people hanging on the corner 1, 2 in the morning doing what they do. If you from the hood, you know what niggas is doin' on the corner at 11 and 12."
Naturally, Twitter has responded to Envy's remarks with harsh criticism. Check out audio of Envy's comments below with a gallery of Twitter's best reactions up top.
