lightbox32 (1903946) writes "The New York Civil Liberties Union released a free smartphone application on Wednesday that allows people to record videos of and report police “stop and frisk” activity, a practice widely denounced by civil rights groups as mostly targeting minorities and almost never resulting in arrests.
