Stop and frisk trial

De Blasio's settlement proposes the imposition of a federal monitor on the department for the next three years.
The mayor is set to make the announcement at the Brownsville Recreation Center today.
Unlike his previous assignments here and in LA, his task won't be to rein in skyrocketing crime rates, but to maintain the plummeting ones we currently have.
The precipitous decline is part of a pattern that began in 2012. Earlier this year, stops dropped by as much as 53%.
Today's cover of the New York Post promises propaganda so sloppy, one would hope that 1 Police Plaza is cringing.
"We do not find that there was any judicial misconduct or violation of any ethical duty," the judges write.
Shortly after midnight on Saturday, the City's Corporation Counsel asked the Second Circuit court of appeals to toss out Judge Shira Scheindlin's ruling altogether.
Next week the City will ask the Second Circuit to strike down Judge Scheindlin's determination that the NYPD's use of stop and frisk is unconstitutional, according to a Law Department spokesperson.
Ousting Judge Scheindlin was "an affront to the values underlying the Fifth Amendment's guarantee of procedural due process of law," the attorneys claim.
What does this mean for the stop and frisk reforms that Judge Scheindlin ordered? And what will happen if a mayor de Blasio orders the City to stop its appeal?
Judge Shira Scheindlin has created an "Academic Advisory Council" made up of a dozen professors to assist in the institution of the changes.
Judge Shira Scheindlin denied the city's request on the basis that it would undo progress that has been made in reforming stop-and-frisk.
