The mother of slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin on Sunday criticized the way the New York Police Department enforces its controversial stop-and-frisk practices.

"You can't give people the authority, whether it's a civilian or police officers, the right to stop somebody just because of the color of their skin," Sybrina Fulton said on NBC's "Meet the Press."
