For No Good Reason_Alfredo
Description: Alfredo, of East New York, Brooklyn, says he has been stopped and frisked for the majority of his life. ďI donít even know, I never counted, itís definitely more times than I can count, I can remember. [Its been the] majority of my life. The beginning of me being stopped and frisked, illegally arrested, was at the age of 14. Since then its been a constant thing in my life. ď He says the police give multiple reasons why they are stopping him. ďI look like someone who just committed a crime. I fit the description of a suspect that just did something or that someone reported. I happen to be coming from a high crime activity area so they want to make sure that I donít have anything. Iíve heard all the excuses in the book.Ē He feels that stop-and-frisk "is targeting low-income communities of color, people who arenít aware clearly of what their rights are because of lack of education and services and programs...These policies and practices donít make it any better.Ē
