A Visual Guide to ‘Stop and Frisk’
The New York City’s controversial “stop and frisk” program is the subject of a new visualization in Brooklyn-focused news site BKLYNR. “All the Stops,” which breaks down suspects by race, nature of the investigation and outcome, paints a stark picture of the program; in 2012, 53% of people stopped were black, and only 0.5% of those stops resulted in an arrest. The visualization was created by BKLYNR co-founder Thomas Rhiel from an open database that is populated by the reports officers fill out following every stop.
