The Vera Center on Youth Justice's recent report, Coming of Age with Stop and Frisk, was cited in a CBS News Crimesider article examining New York State Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman's findings that 0.1 percent of stops result in an arrest for a violent crime. The article also quotes NYPD Deputy Commissioner John J. McCarthy, who defends the practice and questions the AG's report.
