Topic: NYPD new stop and frisk policy
New York Amsterdam News:
New York Daily News
New York Times
Wall Street Journal
The NYPD’s stop-and-frisk practices raise serious concerns over racial profiling, illegal stops and privacy rights. The Department’s own reports on its stop-and-frisk activity confirm what many people in communities of color across the city have long known: The police are stopping hundreds of thousands of law abiding New Yorkers every year, and the vast majority are black and Latino.
An analysis by the NYCLU revealed that innocent New Yorkers have been subjected to police stops and street interrogations more than 4 million times since 2002, and that black and Latino communities continue to be the overwhelming target of these tactics. Nearly nine out of 10 stopped-and-frisked New Yorkers have been completely innocent, according to the NYPD’s own reports.
A hero has come forth who may help force the racism and demeaning practice of "Stop and Frisk" in New York City to cease.
Just another civil rights injustice that has been embraced by the city. However, the court case has revealed the unsurprising news that black and Latinos are indeed TARGETED and that there is the use of QUOTAS. We salute Police Officer Pedro Serrano for his courage for standing up to the "Blue Goliath".
Let's get down and dirty on the topic and the court case, that ended May 20th will a decision still pending. It hits home for many, including a friend of mine who is an artiste, and class act. He will tell us about his disturbing encounter with some members of the NYPD...
Tonight join CWT4R co-host, Ina, Michelle and Terry and we discuss the STOP and FRISK Project in New York and the VIOLENCE IN CHICAGO. Today more children are being killed, African American and Latino youth are being hand cuffed and their life which is supposed to be just beginning comes to a complete stop. Parents are crying themselves to sleep either because their child is dead or their child is the reason another family will never get to hold theirs ever again. Are we putting our children in situations that mark them for either jail or the grave? Joining us as LeMagie Tapia a volunteer that works in this grassroots effort to educate our youth and keep them safe and alive. LeMagie will talk about how in the Bronx they are teaching young people about their rights when they are profiled, Stopped and Frisked by members of law enforcement. LeMaige is involved in the New York STOP and FRISK Project that guide youth by educating them on when they are stopped by the police to not make a bad situation worst then it has to become by knowing their rights. We will then focus on the center of attention by the media regarding violence, Chicago. Joining us tonight is Dawn Valenti, a Crisis Responder at Chicago’s Citizens for Change and Executive Director of United for a CAUSE. In 2008, United For A Cause (UFAC) was formed an organization aimed at helps women and children that have been victimized by violent crimes. Also welcome Stephanie Brown mother of Darius Brown a 13 year old shot & killed in 2011 while playing an innocent game of basketball on the south side of Chicago. Conversations and crying is being heard all over the country. Tonight a parent will be heard and now we need to LISTEN and people need to become INVOLVED.
For so long is has been silence. NOW, SILENCE IS NOT AN OPTION!
STOP AND FRISK AND A SOUTH SUDAN UPDATE
Join in the conversation as we discuss the controversial policy STOP AND FRISK.

Upon taking office, Bill de Blasio announced the appointment of notorious Bill Bratton (zero tolerance advocate) as police commissioner.
Clarence Canty, Jr., of New York, will discuss the origin and impact of STOP & Frisk.

Tonight's special guest is Dr. Pamela Pine, PhD, MPH, founder and CEO of "Stop the Silence: Stop Child Sexual Abuse, Inc.", a non-profit, charitable 501(c)3 organization, with a Mission to expose and stop child sexual abuse and help survivors heal worldwide. Their goals are: 1) to promote healing of victims and survivors; and 2) to celebrate the lives of those healed. Through their work, "Stop The Silence" aims to address the relationships between CSA and the broader issues of overall family and community violence, and violence within and between communities. Their focus underlines the importance of a shift in focus on positive development within our social complexes (e.g., the relationships between men, women, adults and children, cultural groups) to support peaceful - and to hinder violence-prone - relationships. "Stop the Silence" is also known for its annual "Race to Stop the Silence" event held in Washington DC each April and for its partnerships with such organizations as the annual International Violence and Trauma (IVAT) convention in San Diego and "The Lamplighters Movement."
In this episode of Independence Nation, Keith A. Pitts, MSE will tackle the issue of more police brutality. New York City police officers are under investigation this week after a bystander used a smartphone to capture a particularly rough arrest of a Brooklyn woman five months pregnant.
The video shows the arrest of Sandra Amezquita, a Colombian immigrant and mother of four, who fell belly first onto the pavement as officers wrestled her to the ground and cuffed her hands behind her back. The incident occurred during an early morning melee Saturday in Sunset Park – a neighborhood sometimes called Brooklyn’s “Little Latin America,” since more than half its residents are Latino.
Other news: cop asks man for license, and shoots him when he goes to get it and much more.

Tonight's special guest is Laura M Parks from Chandler, Arizona, child abuse and DV survivor - author of several books including, "Under the Broken Halo," "A Promise to God: The Story of Pastor Cam Iverson" and "Alias 'The Rose': Though the petal may fall.....She shall never be forgotten." Being brutally raped by her older brother, molested regularly and beaten by her father, emotionally abused by her mother, and molested by other family members, led her down a very destructive path. "By my teen years I didn't know which way was up and dreamed of either dying or running away." She says. "I married men like my father, domineering, abusive, and controlling. Between marriages I hung out with bikers in dimly lit bars engaging in activities that were less than appropriate for a mother of young children. I made some bad decisions and the cycle of abuse continued in my children." One morning in February of 2009 she woke up and said "enough is enough." She decided to start living instead of just existing. "I had faith that I could finally become a whole person and started making arrangements to move on with my life," she says. "The day I left my third husband, he was waving a gun in my face threatening to blow a hole in anyone that came on "his" property. Even though I was terrified and shaking, I refused to back down from him. I packed my stuff, got in my car, and drove away from the nightmare." Laura concludes, "I listened to my voice inside, prayed every day, stayed strong and never looked back. My mission is to inspire others to become survivors and stop considering themselves victims. If I did it, so can you." As Laura says, "We don't have to stay victims, we can all become survivors."

Tonight's special guest is Mike Tikkanen from Minnesota, Founder of KARA (Kids at Risk Action) at InvisibleChildren.org. Kids At Risk Action is partnering with Minnesota Public Television to demonstrate why it is in our community's interest to stop the repeated failures throughout our child protection system and make children healthy. Brandon Stahl’s reporting on the tortured death of four year old Eric Dean after 14 ignored reports of child abuse by mandated reporters caused Governor Dayton to remark on the colossal failure of child protection and order a review of Minnesota’s child welfare system. Mike hopes changes will be made to the reporting, recording, and accountability as to how counties manage reports of child abuse and some effort will be made to change the dismal fact that Minnesota screens out 70% of child abuse calls and ranks 47th among the states in providing resources to children in child protection. 29% of children are sent back to the abusive conditions they were rescued from, and the average child is placed in four different foster homes. Mike asks, "Please support KARA’s effort to create the change to reach the tipping point to save children from the toxic homes and dysfunctional lives that hurt our schools, make our streets unsafe, and fill our prisons." Mike is passionate about improving the treatment of abused and neglected children and has formed his non-profit, Kid’s At Risk Action (KARA), to bring public awareness to children’s rights and form action groups to improve public policy towards at-risk children.
