    "People were stopped and not arrested more than 250,000 times by Chicago police officers from May 2014 to August 2014 — a rate much higher than New York City’s police department at the height of its use of stop-and-frisk in 2011, according to a new report by the ACLU of Illinois.

    The report,released Monday, said Chicago overuses the highly criticized practice — which, much like New York’s, disproportionately targets black people and other minorities.
    The review found that black people were stopped at a much higher rate.

    According to the report, African-Americans were subject to 72% of all stops yet account for just 32% of Chicago’s population.” *
