VIDEO: Hilarious Onion Spoof, 'Stop and Kiss,' Goes Viral

Human Rights

On the day when Mayor-elect Bill deBlasio announced his police commissioner will be Bill Bratton, (former commish under Giuliani, and former L.A. police head), The Onion's "kiss" goodbye to Bloomberg/Kelley's favorite policing technique, Stop and Frisk, has gone viral. As might be expected, the satirical website takes a satirical view, spoofing it as 'Stop and Kiss.'

It's simultaneously funny and disturbing.
