For No Good Reason_Brian
Description: Brian, a Brooklyn native, says he is stopped five to six times a year. “Pertaining what neighborhoods ya in, what ya wearing, how ya walking. It’s not really based on that I fit a description of a robbery, [it’s] based randomly. If in red zones, high crime areas, such as Crown Heights, Brownsville, East New York, [in Brooklyn] have those towers up, sitting above street level, tinted windows, watching the neighborhood. Subjected to frisks that I don’t think are warranted, but based on pure speculation or even most of the time if you are a certain color, you get stopped. One thing leads to another, they open your pockets, and its just not warranted. I feel if I was dressed a certain way I wouldn’t get frisked. Stop you because of your color, what you wearing, if look slightly suspicious.” After a stop, he says he always feels angry,"My whole day is thrown off. Their tactics make me upset. This is what you have to stoop to? To run down on me? To search me to get a collar? I definitely think their tactics are the worst.” (Brian asked for his face to be shielded to protect him from retaliation by the cops for him speaking out.)
