Names in Stop and Frisk Database Illegal Says Group
(Washington Post) — The New York Civil Liberties Union says a database with the names and addresses of hundreds of thousands of people stopped, questioned and frisked by police is illegal.
The NYCLU says state law requires records relating to a summons or an arrest be sealed unless the person is convicted or pleads guilty to a crime. It sued the New York Police Department on Wednesday in state Supreme Court in Manhattan on behalf of people stopped. It wants their personal information sealed.
