Mounting Controversy

Civil rights groups, politicians and citizens in the city and country have called for an end to stop-and-frisk programs and say the controversial policy opens the door for racial profiling of minorities. In June, thousands marched through the streets of New York in silent protest. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has defended the policy, saying it saves lives.
