Saturday will mark 10 years since a major ruling against the NYPD and its stop-and-frisk policy.
The federal ruling, from Aug. 12, 2013, determined that officers had violated the rights of hundreds of thousands of minority residents. The policy, a signature of Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s administration, previously allowed officers to detain, question and search civilians.
In 2013, it was ruled the policy was unconstitutional and disproportionally targeted Black and Latino men.
Dean Meminger is joined by court-appointed community liaison Germain Thompson to discuss how stop-and-frisk is impacting New Yorkers today.
