The crowded neighborhoods of the West Bronx come alive at night.
Residents, young and old, cluster around door stoops. Teenagers fill
playground basketball courts. Police officers from the nearby 44th and
46th Precincts patrol the streets, from time to time stopping and
frisking young men, mostly black and Latino. And when they do,
statistics show, they use physical force far more often than the police
do anywhere else in the city.
