End to “Stop And Frisk” March Takes Place in NYC

A planned “silent march” to protest the NYPD's use of "Stop And Frisk" — a policy many feel disproportionately targets minorities — took place Sunday without incident, and helped to moblize many. The “End Stop And Frisk: Silent March Against Racial Profiling” was helmed primarily by Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, SEIU1999, and the NAACP.

Last year, police using the tactic stopped 685,000 men, mostly Black and Hispanic. Of the staggering number, only 10 percent were found guilty of any crime. Marchers started their walk at 3 p.m. Sunday afternoon, starting in Harlem and walking 30 blocks near Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s home off Fifth Avenue. According to reports, a group of activists broke their silence when passing by the Mayor’s residence.
