SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco's mayor has abandoned a police stop and frisk proposal designed to get weapons off the streets.
There was an outcry after Mayor Ed Lee told the San Francisco Chronicle (http://bit.ly/NZAeZi ) in June that he was considering stop and frisk, which involves officers stopping and searching suspicious people for weapons.
Stop and frisk is popular in New York City, but critics liken it to racial profiling.
The mayor now says he will instead rely on targeted police enforcement, crime-tracking software and increased involvement by ministers to combat the gun violence.
Lee is announcing details of his alternative plan on Tuesday at Bayview's Calvary Hill Community Church.
