The Early Word: Councilman Says NYPD Lawsuits Could 'Bankrupt' City

Queens pol blasts law ending police practice of stop-and-frisk.

1. Queens Councilman Peter Vallone, Jr., chair of the Public Safety committee, came out against a bill ending stop-and-frisk, according to the New York Post. Vallone said that the bill, which is currently making its way through the City Council, would cost taxpayers millions of dollars in lawsuits brought by people at the receiving end of the controversial police practice. “This is the most dangerous and irresponsible bill ever to be considered by the City Council,” Vallone said. “It would bankrupt the city.”
