NYPD Biased Against People Of Colour

Majority in City See Police as Favoring Whites, Poll Finds

A significant majority of New Yorkers say the Police Department favors whites over blacks, according to a new poll by The New York Times. Concern about discrimination comes at a time of intensified scrutiny of the Bloomberg's administration’s possibly illegal practice that directs the NYPD to use "stop and frisk." Last year, the police made nearly 700,000 stops ; about 85 percent of the stops involved blacks or Hispanics. (NYTimes)
