A Broken Promise in Texas: Race, the Death Penalty and the Duane Buck Case
Monday, August 12, 2013
By:Hardball with Chris Mattews
Sherrilyn Ifill appeared on Hardball with Gov. Pataki. They discussed A.G. Holder's speech on sentencing reform, as well as the landmark Stop-and-Frisk ruling which declared the NYPD's tactics violate rights.
"The reality is that crime began to go down in New York in the 1990s, when David Dinkins was mayor, before we implemented Stop-and-Frisk. And all over the country, crime has been going down. We're at these astonishingly low rates of crime and the question is, can we now begin to correct some of the excesses like Stop-and-Frisk?"
