This is WRONG!

This is racial profiling, loss of freedom of association and who knows how many other freedoms. I'm so astounded, I can't think straight. It reads like a police state novel--we think they look like gang members, so we have the right to stop them in the streets to question them in the hopes they might be doing something illegal? No specific warrant? I don't think so! Yes, their heart is in the right place, and I understand fully that gang violence is devastating--we see some of the effects of it here--but loss of freedom to one population means loss of freedom to us all. This is NOT right!
