NYPD Commissioner defends “Stop and Frisk”..says Black Americans are “Understopped”

Nightline noted that 84 percent of those stopped are “young men of color.” Bloomberg, however, argued that the number of black and Latino men stopped should be compared to the descriptions of suspects — not to the number of black and Latino men in the population. 

“About 70 to 75 percent of the people described as committing violent crimes — assault, robbery, shootings, grand larceny — are described as being African-American,” Kelly said. “The percentage of people who are stopped is 53 percent African-American. So really, African Americans are being understopped in relation to the percentage of people being described as being the perpetrators of violent crime,” Kelly argued. The “reality is that crime happens in communities of color. They are being disproportionately victimized.”
