“Suspect is a human being wearing a red hoodie.”

Hmmmmmm.

Not touching that one!

So if Miss Swan became a NYC police officer, she couldn’t even say “he look-a like a man”

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

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”.

Surprise, surprise.

That's why I think that the people of New York City don't "get it".

I don't really care.
Do you?

Yes, I do really care. These are people. They have loved ones and families. What is happening to them is evil.

I’m not Venezuelan either, but I care about the evil that is happening to those people.

I’m not Iranian, but I care about the evil happening in Iran.

Compassion is not weakness, despising evil is not a waste of effort, and my fellow man is endowed with certain inalienable rights.

Officer I understand that it would be improper to identify the race, gender or age of the suspect but I can describe what he was wearing.

The suspect was wearing plaid boxer shorts. I knew that because the suspect's pants were riding below the cheeks of the suspect's ass. The suspect was wearing 200 dollar Jordans. The suspect had three tear drop tattoos descending from his left eye. The suspect had jailhouse tattoos on his fingers with a letter on each finger spelling a name that I was unfamiliar with. The suspect was wearing some kind of bright shiny metal orthodontia in his mouth. The suspect was wearing a baseball hat with a price tag on it.

Well wait a minute here, what about your state?

Should we consider burning down Missouri since many in your major cities are clearly leftist perverted deviates?

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?

If government workers were ever polled, I bet you'd find they were 90% democrats. Your typical front line bureaucrat is one who could not make it in the private sector.

First, I didn't say that WE should burn New York to the ground, just that there would have to be places that DO burn to the ground before people wake up. St. Louis is one of those places.

St. Louis obviously is not proposing anything as insane as not allow a suspects description to be added to a BOLO, but they probably aren't too far behind in their stupidity.

I don't live in St. Louis, I live in Springfield. The people who live in St. Louis don't get it. If they understood the stupidity, they would vote those people out of office.

St. Louis will be one of the cities that burns itself down.

It’s sad. I don’t see any of the big cities getting out of it, and States that follow their big city leads will go right down with them. My parents live in a small, conservative town in southern Illinois, but Chicago is dragging the whole State down. I’m begging them to move either to Southwest Missouri or back to Texas where we lived in the 70s, but they don’t see the danger yet.

I’m hoping they see it before it’s too late.

It's not a matter of states following big city leads...Cities are where the corrupt seats of government are..Where the big bucks are...the government Unions, government insiders, the wealthy well connected, etc...

Government...Government....Government...

In fact it's government who winked and nodded and aided and abetted as tens of millions entered illegally...Compromising and undermining our history and electoral process.

See the big pic?

Do you not see the big picture?

Until the voters in those places wake up and remove that government, it will continue to degrade.

Government is in power because the people put it in power. If the people won’t change their government, the government won’t change.

People in those big cities can’t see what is happening to them. If they could see it, they would change their government. But they aren’t.

Ergo, thousands and thousands and thousands of people will have to literally die before others who live there figure it out. The cities will have to burn before change comes.

BTW, in places like CA they tried to stop it...They voted for and passed prop 187 overwhelmingly way back in 1994..

Then the feds, working in concert with their state government co-conspirators burned the ballots and declared the free election illegal....

The results of that can now been seen from Las Vegas to North Carolina and in your back yard!

THE VOTERS are the ones who keep re-electing the politicians.

If THE VOTERS won’t vote for other people, then THE VOTERS will suffer the consequences.

There is NO GOVERNMENT without THE VOTERS.

Our Fascist government won't leave this evidence behind. Read "1984" by George Orwell. Or read about Stalin in Russia (they used to remove images of out of favor bureaucrats from pictures). Or read "The Forgotten Man" to see how much of FDR's fiscal insanity was never made public.

They can't ever have any evidence around about how insane their policies were, because it discredits their religion of socialism.

“A rep for Quinn said she sent the proposals to a floor vote because a MAJORITY of council members SUPPORTED it and Public Safety Committee chair Peter Vallone Jr. — an opponent — refused to let it out of committee.”

“Williams and fellow Brooklyn Democrat Brad Lander, a co-sponsor of the proposal, say it would only expand the city’s existing racial-profiling law by adding other demographic groups that should be protected, such as the homeless and gay people.”

Here in my state they got rid of the death penalty and gave felons the vote regardless of the crime they were convicted of.

In fact the second (felony votes) a few freepers here liked that idea feeling sympathy with the criminals, although that was a few years back probably 2009.

Now with the fuss over voter ID laws that wouldnt go well here anymore.

If they passed this, within a month the papers would be filled with stories about black teenage boys being questioned for crimes committed by elderly Asian women. If anything, having a description for the assailant protects innocent people who belong to groups that commit a disproportionate number of crimes, since instead of being a suspect for every crime he would be a suspect for a much smaller number of crimes.

RE :”Liberalism: Calling evil good and good evil since its inception.”

If you believe that guns and soda and smokes and booze all kills people, but other people don't kill people (except maybe those greedy owners who sell them) then this law makes perfect sense.

You know that air-BB guns are illegal in NYC?
