Stop-and-Frisk: The High School Senior (Where I Am Going)

Kasiem Walters, a high school senior in Flatbush, Brooklyn, speaks about the countless stop-and-frisk experiences he and his friends have had over the years.  From waiting outside a friend's house on the walk to school, to giving high-fives and being mistaken for selling drugs, Kasiem dreams of a time when he and his community can look around and feel like citizens of New York, not criminals.

This is the first in a 4-part docuseries entitled Where I Am Going.

Where I Am Going is a video series that peeks into the lives of people who've experienced NYPD's Stop-and-Frisk policy.  These short documentaries gives us a glance into the lives of ordinary New Yorkers — a teenager, a mother, a clergyman, and a police officer. We start by sharing a teen's story.

The police policy has impacted their lives and their neighborhoods. These are the stories of people who believe they can achieve many things, but are not always given the hope and empowerment they envision.

This docuseries was produced by Firelight Films and by our faith in a brighter future.
