NYPD head attacks ruling on police stops

Says minority communities will be harmed

NEW YORK — Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly assailed a federal judge’s finding of racial discrimination and demand for changes to his department’s stop-and-frisk practice, telling a Sunday news show that minority communities will be ‘‘the losers’’ if the ruling is not overturned.

During interviews on three shows, Kelly also raised questions about the judge’s call to try outfitting officers with tiny video cameras. Throughout, he faulted the judge’s reasoning and defended the New York Police Department’s use of stop-and-frisk as legal and life-saving.
