Stop and Frisk – The situation in which a police officer who is suspicious of an individual detains the person and runs his hands lightly over the suspect’s outer garments to determine if the person is carrying a concealed weapon.
Does the above definition accurately describe your Stop & Frisk encounter?
I am no stranger to the controversial “Stop & Frisk” policy that plagued New York City’s minority population during the Bloomberg/Kelly era. I’ve been stopped countless times over what the NYPD called “probable cause” or “suspicious behavior”. Here’s a video that I got wind of a while back, but now I have a platform with AEMNYC to display it the way I want to. This young man was stopped several times by the NYPD and he recorded one of the encounters. When he asked the officers why he was being stopped & arrested, the reason, as one of the officers describes it, was “For being a fucking mutt, you know that?!“. Please take the time out to watch, listen & learn about the unconstitutional policy Former Mayor Mike Bloomberg & Police Commissioner Ray Kelly enforced so adamantly.
Bloomberg & Kelly = President Rose & The Game Maker.
NYPD = Panem Gov’t.
87% of Minorities stopped under Stop & Frisk + NYC Streets = The Hunger Games Arena.
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. (Source)
