A new case has brought the NYPD’s controversial stop-and-frisk policy to trial this week, one that Hussein Rashid says unfairly hurts minorities. Police have reportedly made about 5 million stops during the past decade, mostly of black and Hispanic men. “The stop-and-frisk result in minimal leads, are highly invasive, disrespectful and disturbing to communities in which they operate,” Rashid said. “Combine this with the NYPD surveillance of Muslim-American communities and you see an agency that is continually arrogating rights for itself that should not be part of a healthy democratic society.” On Tuesday, New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn backed legislation that would introduce more oversight of the NYPD.
