Ray Kelly defends New York’s controversial ‘stop and frisk’ law

Last week a federal judge ruled New York’s controversial ‘stop and frisk’ law unconstitutional, saying it is a “form of racial profiling.” “The judge, in this case, has indicted an entire police department, almost 36,000 police officers — for racial profiling.

New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly on Sunday defended the city’s controversial “stop and frisk” law that was recently rejected by a federal judge. Kelly expressed his view on the judges ruling and said based on what we believe is very flimsy information, flimsy evidence on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

In addition, a U.S. judge has appointed a monitor to oversee the city’s police department’s stop-and-search policy, saying it intentionally discriminates based on race and has violated the rights of tens of thousands of people.

New York City is appealing the judge’s ruling. The formal notice of appeal, filed in federal court last week in Manhattan, began what could be a lengthy legal battle over U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin’s decision that appoint a federal monitor to oversee sweeping reforms to the New York City Police Department’s tactics.
