"We're entitled to at least hope that cops will consider their time and effort valuable, and accordingly exercise discretion and have some priorities. A guy pissing off his steps has his stuff out and is making a nasty public mess; a guy smoking a joint on his steps is risking the hammer of the unfortunate and failed drug war. *That's* tempting fate. A beer on the stoop -- not even walking down the street and talking loudly, but sitting and making not a peep -- simply isn't the same kind of cop-bait activity. Particularly if you're a white 49 year old guy typing on a Blackberry in Prospect Heights." [Brooklyn Stoop Drinkers]
