Here is look into the notorious stop and frisk program of NYC. There were close to 700,000 stop and frisks in the year 2011 alone and over 203,000 in the first quarter of 2012. The below video is a recording of one ‘250’ (stop and frisk). It has commentary from different police officers who are hounded daily to perform these unconstitutional searches daily or face reprimands. While the department “technically” doesn’t have a quota, secret recordings of departmental meetings shows there is a set number of stops and arrests that must be met. The consequences of not meeting your quota can range from desk duty to being put in a notoriously dangerous sector midnight shift alone. The second video also touches upon the little known practice of manipulating crime statistics. Felonies are turned to misdemeanors so people in office can claim crime is down. One of the whistleblowers was involuntarily committed to a psychiatric ward after Internal Affairs would not act and he claimed he would go public.
