Wow! It can't get any more blatant than this.
A whistleblower living in the Bronx, NYC has finally revealed to the courts that he was directed by NYPD to specifically target young black men between the ages of 14 and 21.
In an audio that was secretly taped, Deputy Inspector Chris McCormack orders Officer Pedro Serrano to stop and frisk black men in this age group because they are supposedly "more prone to crime".
Inspector McCormack can clearly be heard telling Serrano over and over "I have no problem telling you this. Male blacks [...] 14 to 21" The stop and frisk law allows police officers to search anyone's outer garments if he/she appears suspicious.

Officer Serrano, who testified in favor of the young men, has been ostracized by fellow officers and has received poor work evaluations since then. Black listing much?
We appreciate officer Serrano for taking a stand against discrimination! It is so sad that this is still a problem in 2013.
Do you think the "Stop and Frisk" law should stay?
