Reports due on stop-and-frisk and duck boat crash, steel arrives for Philly Live! center

    Good morning, Feeders, and happy Summer Solstice! Today marks the longest day of the year, so we’ve naturally got plenty of news for you, including results of the report on last summer’s duck boat crash, and the outcome of a stop-and-frisk lawsuit the ACLU has filed against the Philadelphia Police.


    Susan Phillips will cover for us the result of the stop-and-frisk suit. Filed late last year, the suit claims the police department used racial profiling to conduct the random searches.

    Susan and Tom will team up to bring us word from the final safety report on the Ride the Ducks crash. We’ll hear from the NTSB and the victims’ families’ lawyers.

    How much progress has been made on Philly Live? Well, the steel for the giant entertainment complex is coming in as construction plans move forward. Peter Crimmins will see what the latest plans entail.

    Philadelphia’s pools open tomorrow, and there may be something in the water you should be aware of. Carolyn Beeler will tell us exactly why swim diapers are so important.

    Carolyn will also check out a lawsuit against the Philadelphia School District filed by parents of autistic children. We’ll examine the district’s policies and what’s behind the suit.

    We’ll have more photos coming soon, but NewsWorks photographer Bas Slabbers has shared his top five with us. Get right into the thick of things with these five shots.
