THE BRONX - Dozens of Bronx mothers took to the streets to protest the NYPD?s controversial stop-and-frisk policy.

They say police harassment and misconduct has been going on for too long.

"We want the policy to be changed," said Lisa Ortega, a Bronx resident. "It?s a policy that?s not protecting children. It?s making them feel unsafe."

A booklet stating what someone should do if they are stopped by an officer was handed out during today?s protest.

A recent New York Civil Liberties Union report says that blacks and Latinos are disproportionately stopped and frisked by the NYPD.
