New York Civil Liberties Union urges Brooklyn residents to report police bag searches

After the second terrorist attack on London?s transportation systems, New York police are conducting random bag searches on subways, a security measure the New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU) questions.

The group wants Brooklyn residents subject to these searches to report their encounters. The NYCLU says the information it collects will help it challenge the legality of this practice.

Despite the union?s efforts, many Brooklyn residents say these privacy breaches are worth better protection.
