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.
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.
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?
St. Louis County Council Passes LGBT Equality Ordinance
Why didn't you not vote these people out of office?
What's up with that Mr. Boethius?
I honestly hate that it has come to this, but Im afraid some of these States in our Union will have to burn to the ground
St. Louis County Council Passes LGBT Equality Ordinance
Suspect is a human being wearing a red hoodie.
Human?!?!?! That’s speciest. The description should simply be “life form.”
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.
Liberals keep their minds so OPEN their brains fall out!!!!
Watch out for falling, small brains. . .
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.
I don’t care what they are, as government has become the big problem in America.
Government and those in it are nearly the cause of all issues threatening our freedoms and decline, morally, economically and from a national security standpoint
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.
I don't live in St. Louis, I live in Springfield. The people who live in St. Louis don't get it.
Ok but astrological sign is not included in the ban. Yay!
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.
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.
politically incorrect == totalitarianism
Isn't it offensive to label them "Suspects"?
And you blame ma and pa in St. Louis?
It's like biggov flooding the country with hundreds of billions in counterfeit currency....Oh wait..
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.
The people may have voted for prop 187, but they also re-elected the politicians that ignored that vote.
All goes back to THE VOTERS.
Every crook will now carry a change of clothes.
Savvy suspect reverses his hoodie to the inside gray lining and casually walks past the po po.
Right...assumed suspect. Better? ;o)
They can't ever have any evidence around about how insane their policies were, because it discredits their religion of socialism.
Forget it Jake, it’s New York City.
Why not simply legalize crime? That will fix everything.
Hey, you’re getting the hang of this. You should apply for the dispatcher job. That was real clever.
Another Great idea.
I dont live in NY BTW HA-HA.
This won’t be limited to NY.
What happens when they ask for a composite sketch. Can the artist ask whether it was male or female?... black, brown, white, yellow?...young or middle age or old?
The DEMS are truly “off the friggin wall” on every subject. PC has rotted their brains.
Yet, it is important to answer those questions for every other purpose. Why is this one so important?
'Police are seeking the public's help in identifying a burglary suspect today. As you can see from the pixilated surveillance image, the suspect is described as being human, appears to about 5 foot 7 and was described by witnesses as possibly smelling like a popular deodorant soap.'
It won’t stop with just the cops. It will be expanded to include victims of crimes. They too will only be able to describe the perpetrator by the clothing they were wearing.
“The bills sponsor, JUMAANE Williams (D-Brooklyn), and Speaker Christine Quinn”
“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 citys existing racial-profiling law by adding other demographic groups that should be protected, such as the homeless and gay people.”
Looks like it’s going to be a done deal.
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.
Liberalism: Calling evil good and good evil since its inception.
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.
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?
Composite sketches will have to be eliminated.
