Federal judge declares “stop-and-frisk” policies in New York unconstitutional

When you consider the policy resulted in more than 4. 4 million stops  of primarily African American and Latino males  between 2004-2012, the court ruling puts a  major dent in the law-and-order legacy of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

The judge found nearly 88 percent of the stops resulted in no arrest or ticket. Stop-and-frisk was a free pass to stop and harass.
