For New York City, stop-and-frisk is having a long-awaited moment of sunshine. While the practice has been a topic of discussion in the city over the last decade, the issues that plague its execution came to the fore recently with the decision by a Manhattan judge to declare it unconstitutional.
Now, opponents of the practice are trying their best to capitalize on their newly-found forward momentum with a dose of viral marketing.
Animal New York is producing "Stop Frisking" sticker kits that would be activists wanting to engage in civil disobedience via city signage can pick up for free.
"We can’t advocate that you go out and slap them on public property, because that would be unlawful–much like stop and frisk–but if you do, a local stop sign would be a great place to start," Animal wrote on Tuesday.
What do you think? Are the sticker kits a harmless way to stand against stop-and-frisk? Or just another kind of graffiti in an already message-saturated city. Let us know in the comments.
