VIDEO: NYPD Cop's Stop-and-Frisk Stop
An NYPD officer told a 16-year-old student he stopped him because he was "a f**king mutt" in audio captured by the teen and included in a report from The Nation criticizing the agency's stop-and-frisk policy.
The officer also threatend the teen, identified as Alvin, with repeated violence, including saying he would "break your f**king arm off right now." The profanity laced clip also includes the officers telling Alvin the stopped him because he kept looking back at them. The officers also threaten Alvin with arrest.
The report questions the NYPD's use of stop-and-frisks and comes as the City Council begins considering whether to establish an Inspector General to oversee the department. Mayor Bloomberg opposes the move, saying it would "politicize control of the police department."
The Nation video, made by Ross Tuttle, also includes interviews with anonymous NYPD veterans who say the department promotes unnecessary stop-and-frisks on a routine basis.

Well if a cop doesn't know a mutt when he meets him then I don't know who does. Seriously this "gotcha" baiting by the question authority minority doesn't do a thing for closing the cop, black divide. The majority of blacks living in minority areas are anti cop and more racist than the white population.

Maybe, if you get stopped ALL THE TIME by the police because you look suspicious you may want to change your look. The look of a scumbag, gang banger, thug, drug dealer etc...........Sounds like it's your problem to deal with. I also think your attitude and demeanor has a lot to do with the police officers responses. I also agree with John Wrights comments above.
