A bill making its way through the New York state legislature would make it a crime to annoy a police officer by subjecting them to physical contact.

The New York State Senate on Wednesday passed the bill that would make it a felony to "harass, annoy, threaten or alarm" an on-duty police officer, WIVB.com reported.

Our very existence annoys them.

Catch all law to arrest anyone, anywhere, anytime.

Especially pesky people with cameras who film them doing things they don’t want others to see.

Some animals are more equal than others - so are the dogs they raised.

From another thread:

“We are now living in a mix of 1938 Germany and 1962 Russia.”

Just a tad-bit worrisome. Now it’s (going to be) “law”.

Get an inflatable dog they can shoot, first, before they get to the family's dog.

Stop and Frisk must be very annoying to NY police Officers.
Those poor Officers are constantly being annoyed by pedestrians
minding their own business.

Taking the already egregious “interfering with a police officer” to a whole new level.

So take a picture with your phone of a police officer in the right circumstance and you are a felon. If there is a situation when an officer has to make physical contact with you, you become a felon.

It’s all left up to the officer and whether he or she is having a bad day.

This step one in an attempt to outlaw videoing police actions. That’s what this bill is all about.

Garbage legislation like this just serves to further isolate the police from the community that they are supposed to serve.

This stuff isn’t funny at all. This is basically a right to charge anyone with a felony just for being close to a cop.

These cops should thank their lucky stars they don’t have to work in the state of Indiana.

I left NJ-NYC 25yrs ago. IMO, all Conservatives should vacate the place.

They’ll be deleting all photos/movies from phones, electronically, soon enough some kind of a “magic wand” (like “Men In Black”).

A misdemeanor is more reasonable. I can see how that makes sense, some people go out of there way to give cops grief.

I think they could make this a law but the cops should agree to wear badge cameras at all times.

They are already doing this in some places and it is very effective in dissuading people from harassing cops and from keeping cops from abusing their authority.

The law should be that you can not run away from a police officer on pain of being shot.

Can’t outrun a 9mm or .40cal, provided they can even shoot straight.

If they [cops will let me alone, I will be more than happy never to come near one of them again.

So after a hard day’s work of donuts and dog-shooting, an off duty NY cop could arrest his nagging wife... or mother-in-law?

“annoy and alarm” are completely vague and beyond subjective... I would think threaten and harass had already been no,no’s.

I can see the Rep's point that wrote this Bill. Right now the 'urban yutes' have a free rein (See; Chi, NYC, LA, Philly, any 'Big City').

If Coppers lay a hand on them during their little 'wilding episodes' (Riots!), the Cop's hung out to dry and looking at personal lawsuits. Not to mention a poop-storm of feigned outrage from the leftist MSM, all the Store-Front Revruns, and the Pols and PD Chiefs that cower to them.
(The NYPD should have been bustin' skulls during that OWS bs, but couldn't.)

But the way its written??? I'ts 'a bit' of an overreach.

That is when I fled NY, a state where I was born and raised and loved - at least the upstate part of it.

The job situation and taxes were bad then and that is what drove us out. Now they are much worse. Plus the Cuomo Crime Family still runs the joint.

The majority of upstaters are as conservative as anybody anywhere else but they are outnumbered and oppressed by the teeming Liberal masses and their criminal Liberal (but, I repeat myself) politicians from downstate.

Politically speaking, I would imagine that long Island, New York City, and Buffalo set the tone.

Harass, threaten, alarm, I can see, but annoy? Hell, I get annoyed at all kinds of piddly little things!

A, yes; the FLEEING FELON statute. Make fleeing a felony and shoot 'em if they run. That would surely shorten a lot of episodes of COPS!

CA, PA, IL etc have the same problem, and the lib-dems are a virus disease spreading to other states, unchecked. They ruined and destroyed the big cities, education, gov’t, almost everywhere. TX is even going blue near the bottom, if you look at 2004-08-12 GE (county) maps.

Agreed, but it’ll be used against all of us, now. IMO, criminal “urban yutes’ should be... No, I better not say it.

Betcha $5 that neither NYC cop hits the OWS target, but 7-9 bystanders are shot. Quick, hide the dogs!

Great graphic!
