Breaking Down Stop-and-Frisk

While the number of stop-and-frisk interrogations and arrests made by New York City Police Department (NYPD) has declined in 2012, civil rights advocates argue the controversial practice continues to disproportionally target minorities, an argument that appears to be supported by NYPD data showing that Blacks represented more than half of those searched in 2011 alone.
