Stop and Frisk

Report: Whites Frisked by NYC Police More Likely to Have Guns, Drugs Than Minorities

And yet Bloomberg says even more minorities should be searched

|

White New Yorkers make up a small minority of stop-and-frisks. 84 percent were black or Latino residents. Minorities deemed suspicious by police, the likelihood that stopping an African American would find a weapon was half the likelihood of finding one on a white person.

The likelihood a stop of an African American New Yorker that yielded a weapon was half that of white New Yorkers stopped. The NYPD uncovered a weapon in one out every 49 stops of white New Yorkers. The Department took 71 stops of Latinos and 93 stops of African Americans to find a weapon.
