    I am sorry for telling the police to be proactive and prevent crime from happening and especially sorry for telling the police to do this where the highest rates of crimes happen (Black Communities).

    This Country, This America , needs someone to tackle the Problems at a Highest and Sensitive levels, for the sake of a better community, and for the sake in Justice and Equality of all people of all Colors and not just a few and most definitely not just for his own selfish Quid pro quo agendas . And if the one thing that didn't work out, like Stop-and-frisk. Then This Country , This America needs that same person with enough gut and self assurance to admit his or her Wrong doing and not blaming others. God Bless America.

    Hey Bloomberg, as an African American woman and mother of a son, I would be glad to vote for you just as soon as you implement stop and frisk in a well-to-do white neighborhood. I'm going to need you to get on that the election is right around the corner thank you.
    Oh Bloomberg, next time you apologized try not to sound so fake and condescending.!

    America you progressive ,socialist globalist, white liberal, democratics y'all do understand that apologies for crimes against fellow citizens backed up by African American bonded gatekeeper socialist leadership is a fading formula for harvest mining
    "Black Vote "and that more and more independent Black Americans no longer see democratics as viable political representation.
    Republicans politicans have no apologies because they never say or do anything.

    I wonder if Bloomberg has any idea of the number of Blacks and Latinos that were killed by racist cops using the stop-and-frisk policy as a weapon. And although the policy may have been rescinded, the killings continue. Yet until now there hasn't been one word from Bloomberg denouncing police abuse. It has taken a run for the presidency to get him to see the error of his ways. Seems he thinks people of color are fools. The last thing America needs is another bigot in the oval office.

    IF WE WANT LESS GUN CRIMES, STOP AND FRISK IS THE ANSWER FOR SLOWING THAT CRIME. WE NEED STOP AND FRISK, PEOPLE WHO INDULGE IN GUN CRIMES SHOULD BE THE ONLY ONES WHO WOULD BE OPPOSED TO STOP AND FRISK

    The utter hypocrisy of Bloomberg! He didn't just advocate/practice Stop and Frisk, he had Judge Shira A. Scheindlin removed from the case, by stealth!

    It's kinda funny how after all these years you were out that you just came to the realization that you were wrong, Could it be because you are running for President and looking for black votes? Kinda sneaky of you sir, I hope also everyone will remember how you got your big friends to change the Term limits until after you got out, what will you change the term limits for the President if you win to ,A (20) years dictatorship? People be afraid, be very afraid.

    "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated..."- 4th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Bloomberg will violate your rights, then say he's sorry. The hypocrisy of the Democratic Party knows no bounds.
