Stop and Frisk

on Trial

 

The New York City Police Department's policy called "stop, question, and frisk" is on trial in Federal Court.

 

Floyd v. City of New York is the second of three class-action cases before Judge Shira Scheindlin.

 

Commentary by L&PG's Executive Director

Gloria J. Browne-Marshall:

"They can stop, question, and frisk anyone. A police sergeant said “they might live there but we own the block.” His voice was taped in secret. However the war on Blacks and Latinos is no secret.

Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama believe DOMA is unconstitutional.

HIV/AIDS Awareness should be a daily concern.
Get tested. Say NO - to unprotected sex.

Women are infected most often through

heterosexual relationships. African-American women account for over 70% of new HIV cases. Consider the 'female condom.'

The Law and Policy Group, Inc. advocates testing on demand within correctional institutions and prior to release from correctional institutions.
