Quoted: Kal Penn Tweets In Support Of Stop And Frisk (Seriously.)

Pretty much our reaction, too.

Actor and former Obama administration aide Kal Penn surprised most of his Twitter followers Tuesday when he strongly defended New York City’s Stop and Frisk policy. Earlier this week, a federal judge ruled that the policy violated the constitutional rights of the city’s minority populations and called for a federal monitor to oversee reforms.

Penn’s views also put him at odds with Attorney General Eric Holder, who filed a brief in support of the case against the NYPD.
