New York Protesters March In Silence To Oppose Stop-And-Frisk Policy
Tens of thousands of people stretched 20 blocks.
Protesters, united in their belief that the NYPD’s program unfairly targets blacks and Latinos from poor neighborhoods, carried signs reading “Frisk the Bankers” and “Stop Racial Profiling.”
“Stop-and-frisk is the most massive local racial profiling program in the country,” said NAACP President Todd Jealous. “All children, of every color, should feel protected by our police, not threatened, harassed or intimidated.”
