For No Good Reason_Chino
Description: Chino, of Flatbush, says that for almost two decades she would get stopped. ďIíve experienced stop and frisk so many times, I canít really pinpoint a number. My experiences date all the way back to the early 90ís. Not that the NYPD has any much of correctness around LGBT politics now, but it wasnít even on the map for the NYPD back in the 90ís. I would get stopped by male officers, who would frisk me, put me up against the wall...pat me down and then figure out later that I was biologically female. Then they would proceed to call in another female officer to do a more thorough search of my body...For me, what I do with that anger is to channel it in the most productive way possible, which is doing campaigns and organizing around stopping stop-and-frisk.Ē
