87% OF NYC COP STOP AND FRISKS ARE BLACKS & LATINOS

News One - The NYPD performed 575,304 "stop-and-frisk" patdowns last year — the most since the numbers have been released, the department revealed. While it was an 8 percent jump from 2008, the percentage for each racial demographic stayed about the same. Some 55 percent of those stopped last year were black, 32 percent Hispanic, 10 percent white and 3 percent Asian.
