Demonstrators marched in Manhattan on June 17 to protest New York's "stop-and-frisk" program.

A Manhattan Federal Court ruled that police are not allowed to make trespassing stops outside of private residential buildings in the Bronx. The “Clean Halls” program—which is only in the Bronx—has led to people suing the city after alleging harassment outside their own place of residence. In the program, officers are allowed to patrol in and around private residential buildings. There will be a hearing on what other relief should be granted.
