bagsearchThe city is paying $25k to settle a racial profiling lawsuit brought against the NYPD by a southeast Asian man who claims he was racially targeted for stops and searches. Since police began inspecting subway riders in 2005, Jangir Sultan was searched 21 times at various stations. The NYPD claims he was randomly selected for search, but Sultan’s lawyers say the odds of that are 1 in 165 million, four times better than the chances of winning the lottery. |NYP|
