New York City is facing a new class action lawsuit over the NYPD's use of quotas to get officers to issues summonses and stop-and-frisk people, and the suit reportedly cites some of the quotations which appeared in the Village Voice's NYPD Tapes series. The series, which features secret tapes made by a former cop, shows that precinct supervisors order their officers to hit quotas for tickets and stop-and-frisks, and threaten them with disciplinary action if they don't comply.
