Joe Biden has officially signed his controversial executive order, Stop & Sniff. The new executive order is inspired from Bloomberg’s ‘Stop & Frisk’ order that ran rampart in New York City.
‘Stop & Sniff’ essentially allows police to stop anyone without probable cause and get a good sniff on them. The sniff is suppose to help officers indicate any potential illegal substances on citizens.
Activists are calling this new executive order racist because cops are primarily sniffing people of color. Police aren’t sniffing white people as they are black and brown citizens.
Congressional democrats and republicans have mixed opinion on Joe Biden’s Stop & Sniff executive order. It’s unclear if Congress will take action to attempt to remove or improve the new law enforcement policy.
