In 2011, 685,724 New Yorkers were stopped by the police.
605,328 were totally innocent (88 percent).
350,743 were black (53 percent).
223,740 were Latino (34 percent).
61,805 were white (9 percent).
341,581 were aged 14-24 (51 percent).
Let’s here it for the NYPD! Way to give all cops everywhere a bad name. On behalf of my friends, and specifically my family, who serve in law enforcement—and on behalf of my friends, and specifically my family, who are black and/or Latino [my wife, my in-laws]—I’d just like to thank those officers involved for making things worse for everyone. Well done! ::golf clap:: -CB
