Mayor Bloomberg vetoed two major police reform bills, banning discriminatory profiling and creating independent oversight of the NYPD. They both passed the City Council with the 34 votes we need to overcome the veto; we just need all 34 Council Members to again vote for the Community Safety Act.
In his time as mayor, Bloomberg has increased the number of “Stop-and-Frisks” 600%. Stop-and-Frisk and other “broken windows” policing aggressively targets low-income communities of color, young people, homeless people, LGBT people, people with disabilities, and immigrants. We all need safe communities -- for our kids, our parents, our friends, and our loved ones. But violating people’s fundamental civil rights will not make us safer.
