For the second try, YouTube dispensed with the physical world entirely and announced the winners ahead of time and instead used Monday's "awards" day to premiere new videos.

Chicago police use stop-and-frisk excessively: ACLU report

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/24/2015 - 06:30
By Fiona Ortiz CHICAGO (Reuters) - The Chicago Police Department defended its policing tactics on Monday after the American Civil Liberties Union reported what it said were excessive stop-and-frisk searches compared with other U.S. cities. The ACLU said that its study of a four-month period last year showed "that African Americans are disproportionately subjected to stops when compared to their white counterparts. Black Chicagoans were subjected to 72 percent of all stops, yet constitute just 32 percent of the city's population." The ACLU issued the report at a time of increased scrutiny of policing practices and nationwide protests over the shooting and chokehold deaths of unarmed African American men. When Chicago police stop someone on the street but don't make an arrest, they fill out a contact card about the person and the reason for the stop.
