Trayvon Martin's Mother Criticizes Stop and Frisk: Can't Be Allowed to Stop Someone For Color of Their Skin

Appeared on NBC's "Meet the Press"--little mention of stop and frisk being unconstitutional irrespective of race


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."
