BRODSKY SEEKS RELEASE OF RICE "STOP-AND-FRISK" RECORDS AND DESTRUCTION OF RECORDS OF INNOCENT PASSERS-BY

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 19, 2010 Contact: Jon Lipshutz; 914-332-4985 White Plains Richard Brodsky, candidate for Attorney General, today asked Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice to release the records on those innocent persons who were photographed and then received public letters pursuant to Nassau County's electronic "stop-and-frisk" program. District Attorney Rice had previously announced that at least 84 innocent passers-by had their license plates photographed and the owners of those cars had received letters from the police noting their presence on the public streets of Nassau County. None of those persons were suspected of illegal or inappropriate activity. Brodsky made his request under New York s Freedom of Information Law. Brodsky also asked DA Rice to explain why she has said that he got his "facts" wrong. The candidates will resume their debates twice tomorrow.
