The practice of "Stop and Frisk" by NYPD was challenged in a trial which ended on May 20, 2013.  The verdict is in!  This show will air and I will discuss the verdict hopefully with returning "Stop and Frisk" victim, colleague, musician, educator and friend Dean Bowman.  Dean travels alot and hopefully I can grab him while he's in town this week.

On the show which aired June 16, 2013, Dean related his terrifying experience of being handcuffed and taken to a pyschiatric ward by NYPD, without provocation. Luckily, he was released within hours and ultimately filed a lawsuit, the outcome of which he will discuss on this show.  We will also examine the judge's verdict from the "Stop and Frisk" trial. The Justice Department is now examining the possibility of monitoring the program.  

If you want to share your experience or have an opinion please tune in and call 858-769-4917.
