Former New York Governor George Pataki took a shot at Chicago’s police department today on a cable TV talk show.  He was defending the New York City police department’s now former “stop and frisk” policy on Morning Joe.

A federal judge ruled that policy unconstitutional.   Pataki said the policy protected minorities and people in low-income areas unlike the way police protect minorities in Chicago.

Chicago police superintendent Garry McCarthy responded at a news conference today saying the crime rate is down here and his officers respect the rights of suspects.
