Black & Latino police officers sue to end the NYPD's race-based quota system
On this edition of Your Call, we discuss Crime + Punishment, a new documentary that chronicles the struggles of the NYPD officers who exposed race-based arrest quotas.
In 2010, arrest quotas were banned in New York State, but a group of 12 black and Latino New York City police officers say years later, the quotas – and the injustice – continue. The NYPD 12 filed a class-action lawsuit in federal court to end harmful policing practices that target communities of color. How are these officers changing the system?
