Stop Mass Incarceration & NYPD's Stop and Frisk
Tonight at 8:00 pm est, I am joined by members of the organization Stop Mass Incarceration. The Stop Mass Incarceration Network is building a movement to stop the injustice of mass incarceration and police brutality; and the racially biased policies and practices of the police, the courts and the U.S. legal system; and to support the rights of prisoners and the formerly incarcerated.
ManI Tafari is a criminal lawyer and attended St.Lawrence University where he participated in the Mens Prison Program (where college students shared life experiences with incarcarated brothers). In law school he participated in clinics geared at protecting the legal rights of indigent immigrant clients. Tafari currently works on Rikers Island where he represents New York Parolees in violation proceedings. He sees stop and frisk as initiating a slow death on the Black and Brown population of NYC.
