Following the death of Eric Garner during an arrest for selling loose cigarettes, WNYC took a look at the NYPD's policing in minority communities. They found the death of Eric Garner is not necessarily an anomaly. Rather, it is the cost of a crime reduction strategy that prioritizes the aggressive policing of low-level offenses in a department that spends a lot of energy looking for crime trends but has shown little interest in rooting out brutal cops.
