Dear EmailNation Subscriber,

Audio obtained exclusively by The Nation reveals that New York City's police union has cooperated with the NYPD in setting arrest quotas for the department's officers--a practice that has played a direct role in increasing the number of stop-and-frisk encounters since Mayor Michael Bloomberg came to office. Ross Tuttle has more.

All best,
Peter Rothberg, The Nation
