New York City's Right to Know Act requires cops to record people's explicit consent to warrantless stop-and-frisks

    New York City's Right to Know Act requires cops to record people's explicit consent to warrantless stop-and-frisks

    You could write books about the evils of "broken windows" policing and its handmaiden, stop-and-frisk searches (this is a rather good one, in fact), and few places have been more prolific in the racist pursuit of this policy than New York City, where walking-while-brown is a one-way ticket to being stopped, searched, even stripped, all without a warrant or any particularized suspicion. The NYPD's legal justification for these searches is to claim that their victims "consented" to being searched, and voluntarily unlocked their devices to let the cops trawl through their address books, personal messages, browsing history and other sensitive, personal information. The City Council’s passage of the measures comes in spite of fear-mongering and falsehoods promoted by police unions.
