    Stop and Frisk Still Alive!

    in News

    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. 
      On Thursday November 14, 2013, at 6:00 PM eastern time, our guest will be Erie Josey from the organization 100 Blacks In Law Enforcement Who Care.  Join us for this most stimulating and informative discussion about a very important issue.

    Stop and Frisk, Stopped?

    in Lifestyle

    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.”
    Is stop-and-frisk a necessary legitimate police policy, or an unconstitutional racial profiling tactic.
