A landmark trial challenging the New York police department’s controversial stop-and-frisk policy began in a lower Manhattan court on Monday.
The class action suit accuses the NYPD of violating the constitutional rights of hundreds of thousands of innocent New Yorkers on a widespread and systemic basis.

NYPD faces class-action lawsuit over controversial stop-and-frisk policy

I'm glad they are challenging this.  It always reminded me of what was going on in Germany before WWII.

I've never heard of this. What exactly is it? They just stop random ppl on the street and frisk them?

Yes, Stellar.
In New York, you can be stopped by the police and be frisked.

Stop-and-Frisk Campaign: About the Issue

The NYPD’s stop-and-frisk practices raise serious concerns over racial profiling, illegal stops and privacy rights. The Department’s own reports on its stop-and-frisk activity confirm what many people in communities of color across the city have long known: The police are stopping hundreds of thousands of law abiding New Yorkers every year, and the vast majority are black and Latino.
An analysis by the NYCLU revealed that innocent New Yorkers have been subjected to police stops and street interrogations more than 4 million times since 2002, and that black and Latino communities continue to be the overwhelming target of these tactics. Nearly nine out of 10 stopped-and-frisked New Yorkers have been completely innocent, according to the NYPD’s own reports.

They DON'T have to have a reason. Seriously.
It really is crazy, and I don't understand why it has taken so long for this law to be challenged. It's COMPLETELY against a person's constitutional rights!

Good thing it is being challenged then.

i live in nyc, never been stopped and frisked. maybe cuz i don't look like crackhead\hoodlum\gangster. cuz that is who they stop,99 out of 100 times, ppl that they arrest daily, cops know their customers.
if you notice it is "civil right activists" like al shapron, and the likes who scream rasicm, they don't question the policy cuz it is ineffective, but hey, cops did conficate few guns during those stops. gunhaters should love that.

the fact is even without such policy cops could stop anyone that want to, they can always find reasonable couse. and judge will believe cops before anyone else. this is just another reason for al shapron and alikes to scream rasicm and claim another way of oppression by white man.

I'm guessing you are white then because they haven't been harassing white people as much.

I don't know why they would assume the cop is the one telling the truth.  Look how many have been caught setting people up.

well yea, the city is dominated by black and hispanic gangs, so it is only logical , they would be the customers.i work with blacks and hispanics, that never been frisked or stopped, they just don't look like ppl that couse problems. it isn't as much about color, but reality of life. believe me there are blacks and hispanics in nyc that never been arrested.

I agree aztek it does probably have more to do with the way they dress or attitude.  But it does seem like it is mostly minorities but who knows the officers might of been a member of a minority group also.  Since I don't live in NY I really can't judge if they are targeting minorities or not.  It still bothers me that they can just do this for no reason.

I would give you a like but I have used up my quota for the day, been on here a lot today.
