Under the current New York City administration, men and women regardless of age are being stopped, questioned, and searched at alarming rates. In 2011 for example, 85% of the 700,000 stops involved Blacks and Latino/as. The rationale, according to New York City's mayor, police commissioner, select public policy analysts, and some leaders in Black and Latino/a communities, is that these practices make communities safer and lower the crime rate. Whether you agree, disagree, or are somewhere in the middle, join in on what will prove to be a provocative discussion.
