CITY COUNCILMAN OPPOSES BRATTON AS NYPD COMMISSIONER

I just interviewed NY City Councilman Charles Barron for 1010 WINS. He opposes Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio's re-appointment of Bill Bratton as NYPD commissioner because Bratton was the architect of Stop and Frisk, a policy de Blasio promised during the campaign to end. Barron believes they'll still stop and frisk minorities but they'll call it something different and then present statistics that show that the practice has ended.
