He addresses the controversial police policy, Stop and Frisk.  "I've been thrown against a car a few times. But I've learned my lesson and am a good boy now," said Alessio. "The police are doing a good job protecting the city against terrorists and keeping crime down, I hope Ray Kelly stays around."

Alfredo Palaez, 44 at Ps 52 John C Thompson on Staten Island on his way to vote in the New York City mayoral election.  He addresses the police policy of Stop and Frisk.  "Too much preemptive striking is not a good thing. The good thing about how things are done in the states is that there's a way to change things through voting. Twelve years of the same ideas means it's time for something new."
