Promises Kept: deBlasio To Drop Bloomberg's Stop and Frisk Appeal

De Blasio Moves to End Stop-and-Frisk Lawsuit
Mayor Bill de Blasio today made good on a campaign promise, laying out a deal to end the city's appeal of a federal court ruling that deemed the NYPD's implementation of stop-and-frisk unconstitutional. Under the deal, the city will accept Judge Shira Scheindlin's assessment that the the Bloomberg administration engaged in racial profiling and move to settle case.
Farewell to the Ray Kelly era of casual contempt for constitutional rights.
