WATCH: Secret Recording Exposes the NYPD's Discriminatory Stop-and-Frisk Policy

This is an interesting video. You should watch it. NYC sergeants and commanders pressure officers to write more tickets. One of the easiest way to reach that quota is through a controversial stop-and-frisk procedure, where officers "hunt" black and Latino young men for being black and Latino. One of those individuals who was continually stopped is Alvin. During one of those stops In Harlem, the 17-year-old secretly recorded two plainclothes officers who are overheard saying they stopped him because he looked "suspicious" and was going to be arrested for "being a f--king mutt."
