    Stop "Stop and Frisk" - Protest in Jamaica, Queens, NYC (Third Rally) - YouTube‏

    Powerful. Powerful. I was so absorbed in this video; then suddenly up popped a woman I know! About 2 mins in, white woman with long dark hair -- Elaine Brower, lifelong peace activist (and, ironically, married to a retired NYC cop -- yes, life is full of contradictions).

    700,000 stop-and-frisks in NYC in 2011. That's over 1,900 a day. And, surprise surprise, more than 85% of them are of black and Hispanic people. Further surprise, 92% of those people are completely innocent. (I would say they're all innocent until proven guilty, but I digress.)

    Great speakers here.

    And one member of that other 15% is our own Affection, who I believe is suing them as result of his "Stop & Frisk" encounter.
