Holding the Police Accountable

How does discriminatory policing affect us?

  • Esther in New York, NY said: Two plain clothes officers were cuffing a teenage boy on the train platform when I arrived. He was face down. They searched his pockets and backpack and I heard them asking each other if they had seen him holding a knife. They didn't find one. One of the officers saw people watching and put on his badge. They asked the boy to roll over onto his back, and he did and then stood up, and they led him away.

  • Jacob in Brooklyn, NY said: While riding the B69 bus a few weeks ago, I overheard three African-American teens discuss the fact that they took the bus and subway even for short trips, to avoid being stopped and frisked. That so many kids fear the overreach of our city's police force should alarm all of us.

  • Edward in Brooklyn, NY said: I am African-American and a senior citizen and I have also been stopped. The reason I was given was that the police officer was having trouble seeing if my seat belt was on. Go figure?
