- The American Civil Liberties Union claims Milwaukee police target black and Latino residents with a stop and frisk program.
A lawsuit is being filed in federal court on behalf of six black and Latino plaintiffs.
They claim they've been stopped without a clear explanation for why they were detained.
The lawsuit alleges the stop-and-frisk program is citywide... but that it is concentrated in areas largely populated by minorities.
The ACLU has challenged police in Boston and Chicago over similar racial-profiling concerns.
New York halted its stop-and-frisk policy in 2014 after a federal judge ruled it unconstitutional.
