Stop And Frisk: Where NYC's Mayoral Candidates Stand (INFOGRAPHIC)

INFOGRAPHIC: The Stop-And-Frisk Election

Every New York City mayoral candidate has had to answer one question: What would you do about stop and frisk?


On one end of the spectrum, Democrat John Liu said he would abolish the police tactic altogether. On the other end, Republican candidate Joe Lhota--echoing the position of Mayor Michael Bloomberg and NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly--said reforms to stop and frisk would make the city more dangerous.

As the stop-and-frisk debate brings up big questions--about security, liberty, gun control, racial profiling, and police accountability-- it shines light on each candidate's vision for the city.
