+ - Subject to a "stop and frisk"? There's an app for that.->

Submitted by lightbox32
lightbox32 (1903946) writes "The New York Civil Liberties Union released a free smartphone application on Wednesday that allows people to record videos of and report police “stop and frisk” activity, a practice widely denounced by civil rights groups as mostly targeting minorities and almost never resulting in arrests.
The app was thoroughly criticized by the New York Police Department, which said that the tool might prove useful for criminals."
