Federal Judge Finds Mayor Bloomberg’s “Stop & Frisk” Policy Violates Our Constitutional Rights

Posted on August 13, 2013

A Manhattan federal court judge, Shira Scheindlin, held yesterday in a written decision that "the city acted with deliberate indifference toward the NYPD's practice of making unconstitutional stops and conducting unconstitutional frisks". "In particular, officers must cease the targeting of young black and Hispanic males for stops based on the appearance of these groups in crime complaints". The judge also concluded that "the city's highest officials have turned a blind eye to the evidence that officers are conducting stops in a racially discriminatory manner". The judge is now requiring oversight by a former NYC corporation counsel attorney and...
