Off-Topic: Donald Trump says he would implement nationwide stop and frisk 
policy, forgets controversial tactic was ruled unconstitutional in 2013

        The NYPD reformed their use of the controversial practice
        after Manhattan Federal Court Judge Shira Scheindlin ruled in
        2013 that the city's stop controversial program was
        unconstitutional.  "This is a form of racial profiling," she
        wrote and ordered a monitor to oversee reforms.  In fact, stop
        and frisk was disproportionately used against
        African-Americans and Latinos. According to the New York Civil
        Liberties Union, 83% of the people stopped under the practice
        in 2015 were black or Latino. Since 2002, when the NYCLU
        started keeping records, that number never fell below 80%.

The correct term is "Internet" NOT "internet" -- please don't 
fall into the trap of using the latter. It's just plain wrong!
