But then Wolf asked Cardenas if he supported police stop-and-frisk tactics to fight crime, which have been quite successful in deterring crime in cities such as New York. Stephanie Neely, Chicago's Treasurer, favors it.
But I kid you not--Cardenas expressed ignorance in regards to stop-and-frisk. "Stop-and-frisk--I don't know what that means," he replied. Listen for it at the 5:20 mark. However, the alderman quickly figured it out. Perhaps Wolf caught Cardenas at a bad time, but sheesh....this man is an alderman?
Yet he's a typical Democrat--he knows how to pick the pockets of taxpayers.
