Mayor Bloomberg Against the Idea of Federal Monitor

Thursday, June 13, 2013

Mayor Michael Bloomberg says the possible appointment of a federal monitor for the city's controversial stop-and-frisk policy could result in higher crime rates.

The U.S. Department of Justice filed papers Wednesday saying that if a federal judge ruled the NYPD's practices unconstitutional, then the DOJ would strongly endorse the use of a monitor to oversee changes at the department.

The mayor, however, said that the police department needs a clear line of authority. "No military organization or paramilitary runs where you have confusion in the command structure. You just cannot have that. Lives are on the line," he said in a question-and-answer session with reporters.

The Department of Justice would not say whether it thought the NYPD's use of stop-and-frisk was unconstitutional, but a current federal court case is evaluating the question.
