Thousands of people held a silent march in New York City on Sunday to protest the New York City Police Department's controversial "stop-and-frisk" policies. The warrantless search initiative has drawn accusations of being unconstitutional and while mostly targeting people of color, overwhelmingly black and Latino men. We hear from several voices at the march: Reverend Al Sharpton; Donna Lieberman of the New York Civil Liberties Union; Benjamin Jealous of the NAACP; and New York City residents who have endured dozens of "stop-and-frisk" searches.
