The comment comes as the New York Police Department has been taken to court over its controversial 'stop-and-frisk' policy, which rights groups say specifically targets minorities.
A civil case is to begin on Monday in Manhattan, where more than a hundred witnesses are expected to testify regarding the NYPD practice of stopping, questioning and frisking people. Blacks and Hispanic men are the main targets.
"When we say stop, question and frisk, we're not talking about a brief inconvenience on the way to work or school," said lead attorney Darius Charney of the Center for Constitutional Rights. "We're talking about a frightening, humiliating experience that has happened to many folks."
Press TV has conducted an interview with senior analyst with Foreign Policy in Focus, Ian Williams, to further discuss the issue. Source
