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.
Not touching that one!
So if Miss Swan became a NYC police officer, she couldn’t even say “he look-a like a man”
Way more instantly recognizable.
“Dispatch, we’re in pursuit of a full featured humanoid — over.”
FOTFLMAO. No you cannot say any of that. Not bald either.
This is not only conceptually idiotic, but it reflects a poor understanding of the terminology.
Profiling is done before-the-fact, not after. In other words, profiling would be along the lines of “This type of person may be likely to commit a crime.” That’s a far different thing from “This type of person committed a crime.”
Baltimore City has been using a number designation for race for decades.
1 = Asian
2 = Black
3 = Caucasian
Most description broadcasts are for “a number two male”.
I don't really care.
...I don't live anywhere near New York...
“Number two” is often used to describe something else...
I am extremely convinced a Democrat has a short-circuit somewhere in their brain. They simply cannot be that ridiculous after a little thought.
