NEW YORK (AP) — New York City mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio (dih BLAH'-zee-oh) faces political and legal dilemmas now that a judge's ruling against the police stop-and-frisk tactic has been blocked.
The judge's summertime rebuke of the stop-and-frisk policy was a ringing affirmation of one of the Democrat's major campaign themes.
The judge said police discriminate against minorities in stopping and questioning people when they have reasonable suspicion a crime is about to occur or has occurred. She ordered changes.
But an appeals court said Thursday the judge's ruling would be on hold pending the outcome of an appeal by the city.
If de Blasio wins, he must decide whether to drop the appeal or settle another way.
Republican nominee Joe Lhota (LOH'-tuh) says a de Blasio victory would handcuff law enforcement and return the city to its crime-filled past.
