New York City’s new mayor delivered Thursday on his promise to reform “stop-and-frisk” police tactics, requesting to drop an appeal filed by former Mayor Michael Bloomberg of a federal judge’s order to reform the practice, which critics say discriminates against black and Hispanic men.
"This will be one city where everyone rises together, where everyone’s rights are protected," said Mayor Bill de Blasio.
He said the city agreed to the appointment of a monitor for three years to oversee the creation of reforms aimed at ending discrimination. The monitor will oversee a process in which those communities most affected by the stop-and-frisk tactics will provide input on the reforms.
"I can’t wait to get started," said Vincent Warren, executive director of the Center for Constitutional Rights, which has represented plaintiffs in the lawsuits.
