Being Non-White in NYC isn’t safe…

The Hunted and the Hated: An Inside Look at the NYPD’s Stop-and-Frisk Policy

  1. I saw a show on NatGeo about this policy a couple of weeks ago and how the NYPD is jacking up a lot of ‘people of color’ doing it. The program interviewed some public defenders and Legal Aid folks, who are dead certain that this policy is illegal and are trying to get it shut down. I’m surprised that the ACLU hasn’t chimed in on this – or, if they have, I missed that.

    Of course, it was pointed out that the NYPD does not do this in the affluent sections of the city and in those areas where whites rule the roost. The program mentioned that they did try it once… and the community leaders raised so much hell that the cops never did it again.

  2. I watched this video and I’m not surprised. The cops have been acting like this for YEARS! Now it’s become legal for cops to racial profile and railroad Blacks/Hispanics. I can’t believe this is not getting more media attention. Wait, I do know why its not getting any media attention.
