NYPD accused of racial profiling in stop-and-frisk report

The New York City Police Department is accused of racial profiling in connection with its stop-and-frisk procedures, according to a report by the Center for Constitutional Rights

The group says it analyzed the department?s own data and found patterns of racial profiling. The report says black and Latino people are more likely to be stopped by police than whites. They are also more likely to be arrested and have force used on them.

Previous studies have noted the racial mix-up of those stopped is similar to that of those living in the area.

The NYPD says the center is an advocacy group paid to prepare the study and therefore was prevented from being objective.
