DA Candidate Snyder Supports Stop and Frisk, Would Investigate Abuses

Thursday, September 10, 2009

Manhattan District Attorney candidate Leslie Crocker Snyder says if elected she would NOT stop the NYPD's controversial stop and frisk policy. However, she says, her office would examine all cases of alleged bias.

CROCKER SNYDER: You can't stop the police from doing their job. The problem with stop and frisk is that it's been done unfairly in many instances. Stop and frisk is an important crime prevention tool if done properly.

Snyder spoke on the Brian Lehrer show, as did her opponents, Cyrus Vance and Richard Aborn. The winner in Tuesday's election will replace DA Robert Morgenthau, who's retiring after 35 years in office.
