THE STORY OF KEVIN
In August 2013, Federal Judge Shira A. Scheindlin ruled, in a 195-page report, that the New York City Police Department resorted to a “policy of indirect racial profiling” as it increased the number of stops in minority communities. In reporting on the judge’s decision, New York Times noted:
But the stops were not the end of the problem, Judge Scheindlin found. After officers stopped people, they often conducted frisks for weapons, or searched the subjects’ pockets for contraband, like drugs, without any legal grounds for doing so.
