What: With nearly 700,000 stops in 2011, communities are outraged with the New York City Police Department's discriminatory practice of Stop and Frisk. Last year, 94% of stops led to no arrest, 86% were black or Latino and 99% concluded with no weapon found.
Community groups of the coalition, Communities United for Police Reform, have been talking to thousands of voters in the district prior to Tuesday's primary election urging them to vote and have collected over 1,000 pledges from voters that will vote on Tuesday.
