The Hunted: End NYPD Stop and Frisk

Originally found via The Nation.

Watch and SHARE.  This video exposes racial discrimination and racial profiling that is part of New York city's Stop and Frisk program.   A program that even reaches past the streets into the apartment buildings. The abuses of power, harassment and violence perpetrated by the NYPD are also discussed by police officers themselves who say that the pressure to perform these searches as frequently as possible is fuelled by their superiors and the threat of disciplinary action.

At the top, Mayor Bloomberg and the Commissioner continue to support the program.
