New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg took the airwaves on Friday to blast a Manhattan federal judge who ruled that the city's controversial stop-and-frisk practices were unconstitutional, according to the New York Post. Public safety "is now in the hands of some woman who does not have the expertise to do it," he told listeners during his weekly radio show.

"What does she know about policing? Absolutely zero," Bloomberg declared on his weekly radio show in a stinging rebuke to Manhattan federal Judge Shira Scheindlin.

"Your safety and the safety of your kids is now in the hands of some woman who does not have the expertise to do it."

Scheindlin infuriated the mayor this week by ruling that the controversial practice violated the Constitution and employed "indirect racial profiling."

She said the policy disproportionately impacts minorities and ordered a federal monitor to oversee its overhaul.
