U.S. District Court Judge Shira Scheindlin ordered a monitor to focus on stop-and-frisk, a policy she declared that the department has used in a manner that violated the rights of hundreds of thousands of black and Hispanic men. The city is appealing the ruling. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)
