The City of New York is moving to pull the reigns on the NYPDs controversial stop-and-frisk policies. Recently-elected Mayor Bill de Blasio has announced that the city and the plaintiffs in the original case brought against stop-and-frisk have agreed to have a court-appointed monitor keep tabs on the police department for three years. In the ruling, judge Shira Scheindlin concluded that the police department was indeed going after black and Hispanic New Yorkers on baseless suspicions, and she called for a monitor to help the city rectify faults in the program. Then-Mayor Michael Bloomberg repeatedly defended the program, and he moved to have the ruling overturned under appeal.
