New York City Police Department officers frisked over 600,000 people last year.

New York City is at the center of the police state.

New York City Police Department officials say that last year, police officers officially recorded more than 684,000 stop-and-frisks — a 14 percent increase from the year before, according to NY 1.

“Innocent New Yorkers who on 600,000 separate occasions this past year were stopped, frisked and maybe thrown up against the wall. Barely six percent of these terrorizing encounters resulted in arrest,” said Donna Lieberman of the New York Civil Liberties Union.

According to the NYPD, blacks were 53 percent of the stop subjects, Hispanics were 34 percent, and whites made up 9 percent of those stopped.

In a statement, NYPD Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne said: “Stops save lives. Over the past 10 years, there were 5,430 murders in New York City, compared to 11,058 in the decade before Mayor Bloomberg took office. That’s a remarkable achievement—5,628 lives saved—attributable to proactive policing strategies that included stops.”

According to the statement, the NYPD confiscated 819 guns as a result of their liberal frisking policies.
