Chris Christie: Bring Back Stop-And-Frisk! (VIDEO)

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said he does not feel safe in New York City and he would bring back the highly contested stop-and-frisk policy in “about five minutes” in an interview with MSNBC’s Morning Joe.

“Stop-and-frisk would be back in about five minutes,” Christie said. “We would empower the police and not undercut them. If police officers step over the line, they deserve to be taken care and prosecuted, but this guy, this Mayor presumes guilt on the part of the police officer before anything happens.”

When asked by Morning Joe host Mike Brzezinski if “everything was going right with stop-and-frisk,” the New Jersey politician brushed off the question.

“It’s not the safest summer in some time if you’re a murder victim in this city,” Christie said.
