large groups and solve problems for people at one time, thus reducing the need to go out and rob and steal to obtain necessities. Furthermore, working with local police to determine what is causing the violence within the community, and why they feel the need to stop and frisk certain individuals or what not, we can get a better understanding and be able to relay that information back to our clients. We also need to know the rights of our clients and find the available resources to prevent violence (Hoefer, 2012).

The problem lies in the families, the teenage pregnancies, the single parent households in the hood. I work there. I see it every day. Sure, there are bad cops out there. Always has been, always will be. I agree with you that social workers should advocate for people. My company does "hit the streets", we are an outreach agency for the homeless as well as others.

Roxanne made a great point when she said there will always be bad cops and good cops but the bad cops are making it hard to rationalize the concept of the "Stop and Frisk". I also agree as social workers we have to push though a lot of undecided truths to make our voice heard and make a strong point for our clients and their communities.
