San Francisco: Public Defender Jeff Adachi opposes Mayor Ed Lee's stop-and-frisk policing

San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi


KPFA Evening News, 07.28.2012 

San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi told KPFA why he adamantly opposes San Francisco Mayor Ed Lees plan to implement Stop-and-Frisk policing, which will give officers the right to stop and search people they deem suspicious. Stop-and-Frisk has proven tantamount to racial profiling, and, Adachi says that Mayor Ed Lee, as an Asian American implementing a policy that targets Black and Latino Americans, will risk heightening racial tension.
