Stopped-and-Frisked and telling his story
In this video, 16-year old Alvin was stopped-and-frisked in Harlem “for being a f**king mutt”, according to his recording of the 2011 event. He was stopped by police twice in the same day for a random search, and recorded the second search on his cellphone, TheNation.com reports.
“The tape brings to light what so many New Yorkers have experienced in the shadows at the hands of the NYPD,” says Ben Jealous, President of the NAACP. “It is time for Mayor Bloomberg to come to grips with the scale of the damage his policies have inflicted on our children and their families. No child should have to grow up fearing both the cops and the robbers.”
