Sowell is unparalleled at tearing apart the false economics involved. But unquestioned is, "What business is it of any third party to interpose itself between two willing, contractual parties?" Shouldn't two parties be free to make a financial deal? But a newpaper thinks it's unfair? So? Expose those banks guilty of usury, or warn the poorer parties involved with articles. Or open a competing bank with cheap interest rates! But don't jump to government controls which hand powers over to a few and take away freedom of choice? That should be a last and desperate resort!! Nothing is more insidieous than stripping away middle-class freedoms in the name of compassion for the poor. History shows Governments never return power, and that power corrupts. The graves of hundreds of millions of victims testify against abusive governments, bureaucrats claiming to need to control others to implement their version of justice.

You miss the point. Sowell wants this asked of liberals who buy off on these kinds of emotionally charged BS. In other words, use their own technique against them. And note, Mr. Sowell doesnt like stop and search, he's simply stating that between only those choices, he'd rather be safe and have other young blacks safe.
