The New York Police Department’s “stop and frisk” tactic, under which millions of mostly black and Hispanic people have been questioned by police over the past decade, has violated constitutional rights, a federal judge ruled Monday.
The judge, Shira Scheindlin of Manhattan federal court, ordered an independent monitor to oversee the program. She pointedly did not order an end to the tactic.
Scheindlin stressed that she was not halting the “stop and frisk” practice, only trying to make sure that it was carried out in a way that protects the liberties and rights of New Yorkers.
She appointed an outside lawyer to study the program and report back to the court, and to issue public reports every six months.

Placed in a foster home to protect her from them, Alexandria was brutally killed.
