Last week, U.S. District Court Judge Shira Scheindlin ruled there that stop-and-frisk was unconstitutional in New York. Finding that city police intentionally discriminated against blacks and Hispanics when using stop-and-frisk.

DPD Assistant Chief, Erik Ewing released this statement:

This is not racial profiling, just officers doing good constitutional police work.
