Brooklyn family claims in suit that NYPD harassed them as part of effort to keep CompStat crime numbers down

“It is often reported that NYPD keeps crime statistics down by underreporting, downgrading and reclassifying of crimes,” Robert Brown, who represents the family, says in the lawsuit. He filed a notice of claim against the city, the precinct’s executive officer and unnamed cops last year on the family’s behalf.
