Monday night on All In with Chris Hayes: New York City’s stop-and-frisk policy has sparked a national discussion about security, justice and racial profiling. New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly and Mayor Michael Bloomberg have been on a media blitz defending the controversial program from critics who support a federal judge’s decision that the practice is unconstitutional. Mayor Bloomberg wrote an op-ed in Monday’s Washington Post defending stop-and-frisk, while Democratic front-runner for mayor Bill de Blasio doubled down on his opposition to the program in a new ad released Monday. Kelly and Bloomberg also touted their security credentials in a press conference Monday afternoon, where they announced the largest seizure of illegal guns in the city’s history. Ben Jealous, President and CEO of the NAACP, will join the conversation about what the stop-and-frisk program means for people of color.
Plus: Chris Christie is walking a fine line trying to appease both conservative and more liberal voters. In a classic Friday evening news dump, the New Jersey governor announced his decision to veto a ban he had previously called for on two specific semi-automatic weapons, undoubtedly pleasing potential 2016 GOP primary voters. Monday morning, Christie then signed a bill banning gay conversion therapy for minors in New Jersey, earning him accolades from the gay rights community. New Jersey State Senator Barbara Buono, Christie’s Democratic opponent for governor of New Jersey, will join Chris Hayes to talk about Governor Christie’s bait-and-switch.
Also Monday, the CIA announced they did orchestrate the military coup that overthrew Iran’s Mohammad Mossadegh in 1953. Chris Hayes will discuss what this revelation tells us about the recent history of the region and about the CIA’s tactics with journalist, author and commentator Hooman Majd.
Later, Chris Hayes will talk with Ezra Klein, Editor of Wonkblog, Washington Post columnist and MSNBC contributor, about the continuing battle within the Republican party over Obamacare. Establishment Republicans like House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell are facing off against the right-wing faction of their party which wants to attack the health care law by any means available. The conservative advocacy group Heritage Action jumped in the debate Monday with their announcement of a $500,000 anti-Obamacare ad buy, while Senators Ted Cruz and Rand Paul continue to argue for defunding the Affordable Care Act.
