Safir: Appeals court decision to remove stop-and-frisk judge will keep New Yorkers safe

Reason prevails on stop-and-frisk.

The 2nd Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals issued a stay of Federal Judge Shira Scheindlin’s decision on stop-and-frisk and took the extraordinary step of removing her from the case.

This is not only a huge victory for Mayor Bloomberg and NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly, but most importantly a victory for the citizens of New York City.
