US judge orders monitor for New York police over controversial stop-and-search policy

US judge orders monitor for New York police

NEW YORK (AP) -- A U.S. judge has appointed a monitor to oversee the New York Police Department's controversial stop-and-search policy after people said they were targeted because of their race.

The judge ruled Monday in the case of four men with that complaint.

Police have made about 5 million stops over the past decade, mostly of black and Hispanic men.

City lawyers have argued the police department does a good job monitoring itself.

The practice has led to protests and warnings that it is creating resentment and anger.
