In 1968 the Supreme Court ruled that police in the U.S. may momentarily detain and search a person who they suspect is committing a crime. On August 12, 2013 a U.S. District Court Judge ruled that the New York City Police Department's stop and frisk policy was unconstitutional. In 2011 684,000 people were stopped and frisked in New York City with the wide majority of these individuals being Latino or African-American. Of every eight people stopped, one was accused of a crime.  See recent stop and frisk news
