New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly on Sunday defended the city's controversial "stop and frisk" law that was recently rejected by a federal judge.
The law has allowed officers to detain, question
and potentially search pedestrians if they have a "reasonable suspicion" they have committed or are about to commit a crime. A federal judge last week ruled the law unconstitutional, saying it is a "form of racial profiling."
"The judge, in this case, has indicted an entire police department, almost 36,000 police officers -- for racial profiling -- based on what we believe is very flimsy information, flimsy evidence," Kelly said on CBS' "Face The Nation."
New York City is appealing the judge's ruling.
