An August 23 NY Post editorial lambasts NYC Council members as well as mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio for siding against Mayor Bloomberg and in favor of keeping a closer eye on the NYPD and its notorious stop-and-frisk program. As Media Matters for America notes, “in its zeal to defend the stop-and-frisk program, the Post forgot to mention a recent decision by District Court Judge Shira Scheindlin which found the New York Police Department's implementation of stop-and-frisk unconstitutional and ordered an independent monitor to oversee the NYPD going forward.”
Hopefully this report will remind the Post to correct its oversight and better inform its readers.
