    NEW YORK (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department notified New York City officials on Wednesday that it plans to ask a federal judge for oversight of the city's police department if she determines its controversial stop-and-frisk policy is unconstitutional, according to a news report.

    The New York Daily News report comes after the conclusion of a 10-week federal civil trial on the practice by New York City police of stopping people they suspect of unlawful activity and frisking those they suspect are carrying weapons.

    U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin is expected to rule in the coming weeks.

    WFT is the DOJ just NOW looking into this ; what? they were not aware of this before?

    I think a judge will do their job for them. Dorks.
