In New York today, activists opposed to the police department’s controversial Stop and Frisk policy will be in court. They’re facing charges of disorderly conduct during a demonstration protesting the practice. This follows a recent acquittal and the dropping of charges against other activists, and a public opinion poll showing more than half of all New Yorkers oppose Stop and Frisk. But residents didn’t always feel this way. As FSRN’s Jaisal Noor reports, it took a long campaign from activists to help shift public opinion.
