Data: Stop-and-frisk opinions racially divided

THE BRONX - Opinions on the NYPD's controversial stop-and-frisk program are largely divided along racial lines, according to a new poll.

The Quinnipiac University data also found that 51 percent of New Yorkers disapprove of the tactic, while 43 percent support it.

When broken down by race, 56 percent of supporters are white and the majority of opponents are black or Hispanic.

Last week, Bronx clergy members called for a federal investigation into the procedure.
