In New York, a new lawsuit accuses the New York Police Department of intentionally profiling and harassing people who live on the streets. The suit was filed by the ACLU and the group Picture the Homeless. It says the NYPD is engaging in discriminatory policing by targeting people who live on the streets with so-called “move along” orders, in which officers tell people sitting or standing on the sidewalk to go somewhere else, even though they have broken no laws.
