Chicago police, ACLU reach deal on police 'stop and frisk' policy

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 08/08/2015 - 00:37
The Chicago Police Department agreed on Friday to outside monitoring of "stop-and-frisk" searches by its officers following a report that found they checked a disproportionate number of blacks and made more stops than their peers in other cities. The second-largest U.S. police department will begin keeping more data about the stops, including the race, ethnicity and gender of those stopped, the reasons for stops and their outcomes. The data will be shared with the American Civil Liberties Union and with a former U.S. magistrate judge, who will issue public reports twice a year on the department's use of the stop-and-frisk tactic and assess whether the police force is complying with U.S. law.

Heather Padgett feeds her daughters Kinsley and Kiley at her home in CincinnatiBy Mary Wisniewski CINCINNATI (Reuters) - Bubbly and athletic, Heather Padgett, raised in a loving family in the Cincinnati suburbs, would not fit the stereotype of a heroin addict. Until she got clean last August, she was part of what the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has called a heroin epidemic - a 100 percent rise in heroin addiction among Americans between 2002 and 2013. The sharp rise in heroin addiction, coupled with the risks of newborns developing withdrawal symptoms after they are sent home, has led a group of Cincinnati hospitals to try what they say is the first program of its kind in the United States: testing all mothers, or their infants, for opiates regardless of background, not just those who seem high-risk.
