LIU ON STOP AND FRISK RULING
NEW YORK, N.Y. – City Comptroller John C. Liu stated the following today on Judge Shira A. Scheindlin’s ruling on the New York Police Department’s use of stop and frisk:
“Today’s ruling by Judge Scheindlin declaring that police have overstepped their authority highlights the enormous flaws in the NYPD’s ‘stop and frisk’ tactic, which has served to undermine trust between communities and law enforcement. The judge’s call for reforms must be heeded, and – longer term – the tactic should be abolished. It’s time to put an end to stop and frisk once and for all.”
