Police Target Stop-Stop-and-Frisk Activists
- New York 07/05/2012 by Andrea Sears (WBAI)
Two activists involved in the Stop Stop and Frisk movement have found themselves being targeted by the NYPD. Aside from participating in demonstrations, Christina Gonzalez and Matthew Swaye have been videotaping police engaged in stop and frisk encounters in their neighborhood and posting the videos on line.
Last week, while attending a community meeting at the Thirtieth Precinct in Harlem, Christina says she saw what looked like a wanted poster, with their pictures under a headline that reads “30th Precinct Professional Agitators”.
