New York's Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is considering whether to release a report on the NYPD's stop-and-frisk practices. A source at Schneiderman's office tells the Daily News that there is a "working group" that is reviewing public data, including the racial breakdown of those who are stopped. Documents obtained by the paper also show that Schneiderman has met twice in the last several months with his staff to discuss stop-and-frisk. "They're still very early in the process," the source said.

During his campaign, Schneiderman promised to review the program and stop "unjustified stop-and-frisk practices." More than 86% of the record 684,330 people stopped and frisked by the NYPD in 2011 were black or Latino, and 41% of the total were black or Latino men aged 14-24. 88% of the stops did not result in a summons or any charges.

A report issued by the AG's office would pit Schneiderman against Ray Kelly, Mayor Bloomberg, and presumably Senator Charles Schumer, who has supported the NYPD's tactics in the past and today called Kelly, "One of the very finest law enforcement people in America, not only today but in America's history." We contacted Schniederman's office to confirm whether a report is being considered and have not yet received a response.

Schneiderman's office has also created a bureau to investigate questionable convictions. The Conviction Review Bureau will have one assistant AG at the helm, and will have the power to use investigators and other attorneys to analyze cases where there are doubts surrounding a conviction.
