Stop, Frisk and Seize / by Maria Hinojosa | September 20, 2013

Stop, Frisk and Seize
LISTEN TO THE ENTIRE SHOW

Imagine being pulled over in a “driving-while-brown” situation and then having your car seized by the police—without even being charged with a crime.  Maria Hinojosa discusses how this is happening across the country with The New Yorker magazine staff writer Sarah Stillman. Sarah wrote a feature article for the magazine titled “Taken” where she investigates this pattern of civil forfeitures.
