Stop & Frisk Controversy

Posted: Updated:
Newark, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Chaser Bill takes a look at the controversy behind stop-and-frisk policies.  Many people feel that this gives police the ammo to randomly stop and search minorities. Statistics released by the city of Newark back up these claims proving that African Americans and Latinos are stopped more than their Caucasian counterparts. 

So, Bill wanted to get a first-hand look at how this procedure is done and met up with a police officer who demonstrated how a stop and frisk encounter goes down. He also spoke to someone form the NJ Civil Liberties Union about how Newark's release of this information can help prove who is being frisked, and why and if this procedure is being abused in the community.
