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.

Lesson: don’t PO the NYC cops, or we’ll shoot. Oh wait; we do that anyway.

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.
