they're randomlypulling over taxi cabs, making the customers get out empty their pockets and show ID, where are you going? where did you come from? We see this stanley utility knife why do you have that? "Im a janitor" do you have ID that shows you are a janitor? They also earlier got a .357 revolver off one guy (not from a cab) which was stolen from the oakland pd. cop empties the cylinder, "you see that? Hollowpoints, they're made to go through police vests" You all can have your broadway and wall street, I'm staying the hell away. "send me to hell or new york city it'd be about the same to me"

Since it's "for the children", I guess I must approve. Anything for perceived safety. [whacko][whacko][whacko][pissed][pissed][piss­ed]

I for one am glad to see ordinary subjects being questioned and detained. May I suggest a nightstick officer ? when will they learn that big brother knows best and just submit to anything they want. [heavy]

Nah...NYC isn't bad at all, tourism is at an all time high over here. Randomly pulling over taxi cabs? Are you telling us the whole story here? I know for a fact that there has been a major problem in NYC with cabbies getting killed recently by their customers...I believe it was a gang-initiation thing. Trust me, the cabbies don't mind when we do taxi checks on them. The customers don't like it? Ride the subway (you'd be surprised at how many undercover cops are working there), or take the bus...it's cheaper too. "hollowpoints made to go through police vests"???, what show is this by the way?

Hey I forgot you were up there, you might even know these guys then. this was on cops the fox show just being played on WB there probably is more to the story but they showed just what I described. the guy pulling the cabs over was plainclothes, kinda thick and I think he had an italian last name that all I can remember. I guess if people KNOW that they are willingly giving up 4th ammendment right when they get in a cab then hmmm....The guy that said hollowpoints were for piercing vests was another plainclothes he looked like a complete scumbag sorta like a beastie boy with a goatee n mange all over his face and greasy black hair.

You just described every plainclothes guy I know!!! If they were all clean cut and goodlooking (like me...yeah right) they would be "made" in a NY minute.

That's why I don't even bother with that, but you'd be surprised. That lowlife scumbag looking character may actually be "on the job", the originality of some of the disguises I've seen never cease to amaze me.
