Attempting to stop the NYPD's "Stop and Frisk" policies became an animating principle of Occupy Wall Street in 2011 through 2013.

lyrics

STOP AND FRISK
Words and Music by Stephen C. Baldwin, performed by Stephen C. Baldwin

First they’re going to stop and frisk
Then they’re going to strip and search
They’re going to send you to Guantanamo
And you’ll disappear from the earth

They’re going to stop and frisk
Then they’re going to strip and search
They’re going to send you to Guantanamo
And you’ll disappear from the earth

NDAA, you’ve taken our rights away
Everybody here be careful -- what you say

(solo)

It ain’t because the government’s being malicious
It’s only because everybody here – you look suspicious

So they’re going to stop and frisk
Then they’re going to strip and search
They’re going to send you to Guantanamo
It’s the very last place that you want to go
So you’d better get used to the risk
They’re going to stop and frisk.
