Nicholas Peart is one of the plaintiffs in the federal class action lawsuit against the New York Police Departments policy of stop-and-frisk, where officers use their power to roam the streets and stop, search and question people they believe may be connected to crime. Their allegation is that the application of this method is racially biased and unconstitutional.
