Stop and Frisk, New York Style…   This mural, painted on a wall in East New York, Brooklyn, depicts the NYPDs Stop and Frisk policies, in which minorities are targeted at a extremely high rate to be stop, frisked, and harassed by police at a far higher rate than caucasians.        This street art is a sad yet powerful commentary on our time.
