Episode Summary

Original air date: 7/20/2011 “Stop-Question-Frisk” is a tactic employed by the New York Police Department with the assumption that deterring petty offenses will prevent major crimes.

On this edition of Intersect, St. Francis College Professor of Sociology and Criminal Justice Emily Horowitz, and WNYC Correspondent Alisa Chang join Host Brian Vines for a discussion about Stop-Question-Frisk and Brooklyn.
