Posted on 06/19/2013 6:57:32 PM PDT by Hojczyk
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.
The bills sponsor, Jumaane Williams (D-Brooklyn), and Speaker Christine Quinn are

“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.
Another Great idea.
I don’t live in NY BTW HA-HA.
When they pass a law like this the lawyers follow up to add the details, for instance, pointing out that “hoodie” was being used as a euphemism, or was percentage wise discriminatory or something.
And if the criminal was running around naked...?
After all Anthony Weiner does live there. It could happen.
Baggy pants? see post 22.
When one of their own is killed the cops will all know the description and the perp will be incinerated. No need for a public description or a trial.
I am so glad we have FR to document all this insanity. Some day historians will read about this politically correct behavior and wonder what kind of drugs we were on or if lead poisoned our drinking water supply.
Jumaaane Williams, the bill’s sponsor, is obviously a developmentally challenged human being.
Should such short-bus riders actually be on City Councils?
I believe in inclusion, but this???
One adam 12...One adam 12....Suspects were last seen at 112th and Broadway wearing t-shirts and baggy pants...
One adam 12, WFT!!!...the suspect are all around us!
Yet another reason Anthony Weiner is superior to the alternatives for NYC mayor.
All I can say is, you Yankee vermin STAY THE F OUT OF TEXAS.
We don’t want your crap.
Big Brother don't want no details about those who commit crimes.
Our current police state shaping up beyond the one imagined by Orwell.
Good God...and these are the stoopid NY folks that end up moving to Florida and bleeping it up
Howard Stern used to ask people to describe themselves by
saying, “who do you look like that’s famous”. Witnesses could use that method to describe bad guys.
NY DemoRATS are stupid Twits!
Shake down grandma and little sis at the airport, monitor grandpas phone records in Hogjaw Kansas, bug the cell phones of Aunt Betty and Uncle Joe...Leave the borders wide open...
But lets keep those criminals gangsters identities secret, who are gang raping the 70 year old widow and shooting the 20 year old greedymart clerk to death.
In the Fifth Element, Corbin Dallas (Bruce Willis) is being sought by police. The police go to his front door, and through it they ask him if he’s human. He responds with, “No, “I’m a meat popsicle.” With that they are placated. It helped that someone moved his nameplate next door, where the guy got belligerent and they thought he was Dallas.
I wonder if that would be okay with the Lefties.
Ya look at the “Most Wanted” in places like Chicago, LA, NY, St. Louis and Dallas and 95 percent of those are foreigners, black and or Hispanic...
No wonder these Communist don’t want anyone to describe the criminals.
Yet, they will support jug-ear's administration allowing the recording of every word of every call of every "U.S. Person" 24-7-365.
Yeah, THAT'S ok...
I honestly hate that it has come to this, but I’m afraid some of these States in our Union will have to burn to the ground before people snap out of it.
New York, and New York City in particular, may have to see hundreds of thousands of deaths that point directly at those in power before it gets through their thick skulls.
This is evil.
It’s the government at every level and those in it pushing all this government insanity...Not your private sector neighbors or those in the next state. Ya think the good people in NY don’t think this is just more government lunacy?
Um, probably not. Could make one-legged crooks feel bad.
Drunk anthropoid wearing a hoodie.
No, I don't.
They don't REALLY, get how insane it is. If they did, they would vote these people out of office.
But they don't. They keep re-electing them.
I think some people in Wisconsin and Michigan finally woke up, they changed parties and direction. But New Yorkers? Nope.
Out of 51 members of the New York City Council, 46 of them are Democrats. How many of them will vote for this insanity and not face a serious challenger in the next election?
That's why I think that the people of New York City don't "get it".
Suspect is a human being wearing a red hoodie.
When only Amish are suspects, noone will suspect the Amish.
LOL, and I didn’t mention someone on crutches or in wheelchairs and then there are those on dialyzes machines
or those traveling abroad. The mentally handicapped, can I say that? The height challenged. The deaf, dumb (can you still say that?) and blind. People who stutter, who have turrets, ADHAD and the plain stupid. I apologize to all those I left out.
“be on the lookout for a suspicious looking person.”
Well if the rapist was smart, he would wear no clothes.
Thus, no description.
I think it is discriminatory that they still would allow the police to use height and weight.
They should just tell the police to be on the lookout for a human being. That should narrow the search down enough.
And when they do line ups, they should prohibit the police from showing the faces to the victims. They should only be able to identify them by their sense of smell.
Can we identify them by voting history, or is that a given?
Idiocy on steroids.
