NYC Police Stop-and-Frisk Policies Face Racial Bias Trial

Mar 18, 2013 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: www.bloomberg.com

Four New York men who were questioned or patted down by police are seeking a halt to a city "stop and frisk" policy that they say unlawfully targets people on the basis of race.

David Floyd, Lalit Clarkson, Deon Dennis and David Ourlicht, four black men who claimed they were stopped and questioned or frisked by New York police without reasonable suspicion, are set to begin trial today in Manhattan federal court of their claim that officers routinely violate the rights of black and Latino New Yorkers.

That sounds like a bs story to me. If the police did not have reasonable suspicion to stop the individuals the article should have said what the people stopped and frisked were doing when it occurred. What were the mopes doing.

Police should not be allowed to frisk anyone who happens to be around for no reason.
That's a job for the TSA!

I love how all those in the gallery say things like if you don't want to be stopped and frisked don't do anything wrong. Everybody else's poop stinks but their own.

Then you have the interloping so called conservative RepublicanTS signing off on policies like this out of political expediency.

But you must remember in NYC, the nanny state headquarters you have a huge immigrant/new citizen population along with a 20%ish literacy rate among high school graduates. So the population signs off on stuff like this out of ignorance. Big city living urban NYC style almost demands a nanny state take care of them. Their political views will be limited just by their urban education and lifestyle.

You also have clearly defined economic classes including those of higher income who are desperate to keep what they have away from the criminal population. But that doesn't mean the rest of the non criminal population should suffer for anyone's security fears.
