Is New York City's "Stop-And-Frisk" Policy in Need of Reform?
105 people voted
In 2011, the police stopped and questioned New Yorkers 684,330 times; 87 percent of those stopped were black or Latino. Critics believe the practice is a form of racial profiling and the NYCLU has filed a class-action lawsuit against the city and police department. Proponents such as Mayor Michael Bloomberg note a decrease in crime, specifically gun-related crimes, as a measure of success. Where do you stand on the issue?
