    Teen's iPod Exposes Violence And Racial Profiling In NYPD's "Stop & Frisk" Interrogations.

    "What am I getting arrested for?" said Alvin, a 17-year old New Yorker. "For being a fucking mutt", the NYPD officer can be clearly heard saying on the recording from Alvin?s iPod, the only known audio from the 1,800 "Stop & Frisk" interrogations New York Police do each day.

    The video features anonymous interviews with veteran NYPD officers. They detail how police captains said "we're gonna go out there, and we're gonna violate some rights", and that officers won't be promoted if they don't perform controversial stop & frisks.

    But the video hinges on the secret recording Alvin started just before his street-side interrogation began. When Alvin asked why he was stopped the officer said "for being a fucking mutt", referring to Alvin's apparently mixed heritage and skin color.

    One officer later yells at Alvin, "Dude I am gonna break your fucking arm and then I'm gonna punch you in the fucking face."

    The aggression from the officers could not have been simply recounted and conveyed later. Distant video from a bystander's full-sized camcorder likely wouldn't have captured the audio so clearly, if at all.

    It was the fact that Alvin was recording the encounter himself on his mobile device that brings the NYPD's practices into focus.

    Where I come from, Racial profiling is not that big an issue but high handedness of people in authority is a great menace...I guess it is the same everywhere else in the world...

    I'll tell you how this will play out.

    1. The person (or persons) who recorded this audio will be harassed and threatened with prosecution for so called wiretapping.

    2. The police will come out with a statement that says that they will doing a internal investigation on the issue and the officers involved with either be put on administrative duty or paid administrative leave.

    3.The city will wait for the news to die to about this incident and then they will state that their findings did not violate the persons rights.

    4. If a few months or so they will get busted again.

    5. Repeat 1-4
