Publicly, NYPD officials say there are none. But most cops you ask tell you different- privately.

Arrests, summons, tickets, and you are supposed to stop and frisk a certain amount of people. According to the complaint- black and Latino males 14 to 21

They say it's in order to make sure the police are doing their job. Everyone else knows it's bs

And it's been done for decades here. For people in other states who don't understand why there is so much anger toward police in NYC, this is the prime example of why. Imagine walking home from work or school and being stopped constantly for the hell of it.

And then Republicans will say that African Americans need to change their culture, because it's clearly their fault that the police arrest them. I mean, police don't do things wrong!

Someone on here said that to me. If I dress different I won't get stopped.

I live in a mostly black neighborhood on NYC. One day I walked past the police station. All the officers were out eating lunch. And guess what I noticed? EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. WAS. WHITE.

One of the things Sanders has said on criminal justice is pretty good: the police need to look like the people they're serving.

I like that a lot. One thing I completely agree with Sanders on is criminal justice reform.

@Doc- I don't even care what they look like, I'd rather them be from here. At least they'd have a better understanding of the city and its people.

Wasn't the fella that was attacked by the police and they choked him to death a part of the issue of quotas? I may be wrong, but I kinda remember that a quota was mentioned in the few days after the man died. A cigarette actually killed that time.

That was a terrible thing to happen. I was stunned when the news aired the video. So sad.
