It’s impossible to ignore what appears to be large racial disparity in the New York police department’s stop-and-frisk practices.

A New York Daily News headline, “Stop and frisk outcry: 87% of those stopped by police in Bronx are not arrested,” confirmed what a number of New York civil rights violation lawyers already suspect.

“Looking at the statistics, racial profiling and racial bias appear to be primary factors when officers decide who gets stopped,” said New York civil rights violation lawyer David Perecman, founder of The Perecman Firm, one of New York’s civil rights violation law firms. “It’s impossible to ignore what appears to be large racial disparity in the New York police department’s stop-and-frisk practices.”

New York civil rights violation lawyers understand new police data from the New York Police Department disturbingly reveal that more than 90 percent of those stopped and frisked in the Bronx were Black or Hispanic males.

Apparently, the data also reveal that the police department is on track to break last year's record-breaking stop and frisk stats. In 2010, the NYPD stopped and questioned a record 601,055 individuals. In the first six months of 2011, the police used the tactic 362,150 times.

Serious concerns of some New York civil rights violation lawyers over the stop-and-frisk practices include racial profiling, illegal stops and privacy rights.

Racial profiling and other civil rights violations in New York require legal representation from experienced New York civil rights violation lawyers. The lawyers at The Perecman Firm are committed to protecting civil rights and have years of experience handling civil rights violation claims.
