Protesters continue legal battle for stop and frisk policy
New York City's police department is fighting a legal battle for its Stop and Frisk policy. Last year 685,724 individuals were searched and of those frisked 88 percent were innocent. Civil rights leaders say that the policy is targeting minorities and isn't preventing crime, but claim the policy itself is a crime. NYPD alleges this policy has helped remove dozens of guns from the streets. Carl Dix, co-founder of the Revolutionary Communist Pary, and Dr. Cornel West, author activist and professor, sound off on the controversial policy.
