Stop-and-Frisk Violates Constitutional Rights of Minority Citizens: Judge

Stop-and-frisk was slammed by a federal judge, who ruled on Aug. 12 that the New York City Police Department’s tactics violated the constitutional rights of minority residents of the city. The judge’s decision would later be stalled by a higher judicial panel, but the city’s Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio said he would take steps to reform the program. (Photo: Allison Joyce/Getty Images)
