SORT BY Relevancy
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...
Have you ever been pulled over by police and made to get out of the car? Have you ever been "patted down" for weapons, in other words, frisked? Have you ever been ordered to pull down your pants and spread the cheeks of your posterior? Unwanted touching is sexual assault, and yet police have been allowed to inflict this kind of abuse on citizens with no consequences. Refusal to submit can lead to further abuse, arrest, even killing. Citizens in Chicago are fighting back, with a lawsuit against the police for racially motivated "stop and frisk" procedures in which there is no probable cause for being stopped and no reports even filed of the incidents. In the city of Baltimore the people are rioting int he streets and across the nation, victims of police brutality are boiling over when officials refuse to punish acts of violence and assault committed by police officers. Right thinking people are coming together to remove bullies with a badge from positions of authority. Join with those who are standing up, speaking out and fighting back and will not stop until the practice of police abuse of citizens ends.

Federal Judge Shira Scheindlin recently ruled that the ‘stop-and-frisk’ practices of the New York Police Department violated the Constitutional Rights of tens of thousand of New Yorkers.
Still, according to published reports, New York’s Mayor Bloomberg said, “This is a very dangerous decision made by a judge who I think does not understand how policing works.”

According to published reports, the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled that Judge Scheindlin violated the judiciary’s code of conduct by compromising the appearance of impartiality surrounding the so-called “stop and frisk” litigation. The new ruling effectively postpones numerous changes that Judge Scheindlin had initially ordered for the New York City Police Department.

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.
