Blair's New York Post Article

Leonardo Blair, a reporter for the New York Post, says he was wrongly stopped, searched, and arrested by New York City police. The police say crime in the area is high, and they were just doing their jobs.

Blair is joined by cultural critic Stanley Crouch to discuss implications of "stop and frisk" police tactics.
