This video includes a recording of a typical stop and frisk by the NYPD. A 17 year old kid who has been stopped repeatedly asks an officer why they always stop and frisk him, at which point the officers threaten to slap him, to break his arm and to arrest him for being a “mutt.” The officers take the typical “who do you think you’re talking to” line. The video also includes several NYPD officers, testifying under cover, that this is absolutely routine. The NYPD does this 1800 times a day.
