Stop and frisk policy
The NYPD “stop and frisk” policy is set to face its biggest legal challenge this week, with a federal civil rights trial on whether the tactic unfairly targets minorities.
NAACP President Benjamin Jealous denounced the NYPD’s stop-and-frisk policy in a sermon Sunday, and announced a second wave of activism against the policy.
It’s called “Operation: Clean Halls,” but critics said the trespassing stops by the NYPD are anything but clean.
Now, every time force is used during a so-called stop and frisk in New York, the officer will have to check a box stating the reason.
It happens dozens of times a day all around the city — police stop and frisk someone they think is acting suspiciously. But a Brooklyn man said he wasn’t doing anything wrong when he was stopped and frisked in front of his own house recently.
