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.

And despite this, a video with officers point blank admitting they get heat for NOT complying with this policy, people will still come here and rant that it's the officers that are the problem, not the system, not the higher ups. It's a top down problem, not a bottom up problem.
