Stigma: Stop and Frisk in New York City from Yale Visual Law Project on Vimeo.

Synopsis The law permits police officers to stop and frisk people based on “reasonable suspicion.” Do “Stop and Frisk” police practices cause racial profiling, or deter crime? “Stigma” explores the dynamic between the community and the police through the eyes of three people who grew up on the streets of New York City.
