The mother of Trayvon Martin spoke out Sunday against thestop-and-frisk police practice in New York City, saying neither police nor civilians have the right to stop someone because of their race.
Critics say the stops target blacks and Hispanics who aren’t doing anything wrong. Earlier this week, a judge told New York City that its policy was racial discrimination. The city plans to appeal.
“You can’t give people the authority, whether civilian or police officers the right to just stop somebody because of the color of their skin,” Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
