New York Dems want to pass a bill that would limit a description of a suspect to identify suspects essentially by the clothes they wear only. Truly mind-numbing stupidity.
NYPost reports the following:
Cops might as well wear blindfolds if the City Council passes a bill that would let them use little more than the color of a suspects clothing in descriptions or risk being sued for profiling, according to this provocative new ad (pictured) from the NYPD captains union.
The ad asks, How effective is a police officer with a blindfold on?
And the answer is not very, says the NYPD Captains Endowment Association, which is fighting the measure, claiming it would handcuff cops and send crime rates soaring.
Union President Roy Richter who is seen in the ad wearing a blindfold in Times Square told The Post the bill is dangerous because it will ban cops from identifying a suspects age, gender, color or disability.
When we have wanted suspects and patterns of crimes, those are very important descriptive terms to let officers know who to look for.
The ad warns that if cops transmit a description of a suspect that goes beyond the color of his or her clothing, they could be sued for racial profiling if the proposal becomes law.
The ad will appear in tomorrows Post, in addition to the unions Web site, Twitter and Facebook and provides links to contacts for City Council members to sway their vote on the measure.

“Suspect is a human being wearing a red hoodie.”
Sounds like a winner for the mafia.
How about sexual orientation?
“The suspect fled the scene of the ... ummm... bath house for perfectly normal men to meet other perfectly normal men”
There is an easy way around this. Just say 6 foot 180 lb. Leroy Maboomba just held up a liquor store.
You can find their real name later.
Better yet.: Suspect is almost a human being wearing a red hoodie.
Wait till one of their own is killed. They will demand, “who did this?”
The police will say, “something with two legs.”
Nope, can’t say “human”, that’s a race.
“The suspect, a being wearing a hoodie...” Nope, that’ll be banned next - shades of Trayvon and all of that.
how bout if they said suspect wearing pants around ankles and a hoodie... the profiling too???
As the U.S. government dumps millions more Muslims and illegals into our towns and states....
Ya just knew this was coming.
Werewolf of London, his hair was perfect!
No dis on werewolf’s anywhere.
“It was described by witnesses as a human”
Perhaps NY police can still describe suspects by the illegal firearms that they may be carrying.
Everyone will soon enough only be identified by their DNA sequence anyways.
No big deal.
Oh...the suspect was wearing a white T-shirt and baggy pants....
The streets are crawling with t-shirts and baggy pants!!
More government insanity...Those in government truly want to destroy the U.S.
