End the "Stop and Frisk"!

Too many people are being harassed and bothered because you're suspicious! Too many resources and your tax paying money is being wasted on the stops. With over violent high and mighty Police officers stepping over the line of their duty. Police have a job of SERVING and PROTECTING. Not threatening the hand that feeds. This issue needs to be resolved, it is against the law in New York to give a quota to the officers, but the Department is sugar coating it, calling it by other names. This needs to end. If everyone could watch this video and help get this issue fixed, i'm sure many of the New Yorkers could live their lives safer and in a more peaceful manner. Not having to look over their shoulder, dreading an officer is following them. Threatening them!
