Finding a Home in the Stop-and-Frisk Regime

NYPD’s stop-and-frisk program has been hailed as both a model of policing and a prime example of the evils associated with racial profiling. While its reform continues in New York City, police departments across the country are replicating its procedures, which  targets of the practice describe as “humiliating,” “intimidating,” and “violating.” This article identifies and analyzes the alienation resultant from stop-and-frisk policies through the concept of the home. The home is mobilized as a framework to analyze the harm that stop-and-frisk produces, as it destabilizes the secure foundation upon which the liberated subject is constructed.
