NYCLU Releases 'Stop and Frisk Watch' App

The New York Civil Liberties Union has released the "Stop and Frisk Watch" app for Android phones that lets users record and report police activity to the group.

Members of the group said the app would counter "abusive, discriminatory policing." The app was released Wednesday.

"The NYPD's own data shows that the overwhelming majority of people subjected to stop-and-frisk are black or Latino, and innocent of any wrongdoing," said Donna Lieberman, executive director of the NYCLU. "Our app will allow people to go beyond the data to document how each unjustified stop further corrodes trust between communities and law enforcement."

Stop and Frisk Watch is available in English and Spanish and works only in New York City. The group plans to release an iPhone version later this summer.

The app also has a "listen" feature that alerts the user when people in their vicinity are being stopped by the police. When other app users in the area trigger Stop and Frisk Watch, the user receives a message reporting where the police stop is happening.

Watch a video demonstrating the use of the app here.

Leave it to the liberals. Finding new ways to keep hugging the thugs.

I would like to make an "app" that records all of the wrongdoing the ACLU and their Liberal followers do, but my phone's memory would fill up too quikly and I'm not sure there is a server big enough to handle it. Sad, perhaps if the ACLU is so upset with the policing in this great country of ours, they should spend their money on providing departments with greater training budgets instead of suing departments taking want money they do have away. Keep doing what you're doing. The liberals are falling fast. The best protest they can come up with is to "occupy" what once was a beautiful park and throw poop. At the end of the day, it's their hand that is dirty, not ours.

ACLU is the Al-caeda of spineless wonders! Useless and pathetic.

Jim Van Gorder @ 6/12/2012 8:25 AM

Does this app also show the reason for the initial stop or only the "acting" of the of the aggreived parties after they have been harrassed unjustifiably by racist police officers? (heavy sarcasim)
