NY bill to limit BOLO descriptions
NYPD unions blast City Council proposals to limit crime suspects descriptions - NYPOST.com
A NYC bill says that police officers can only use suspect's clothing descriptions for BOLOs, and police cannot not mention age, rage, gender or disability of the actual suspect or they may be sued for racial profiling. :WTF:
This asinine proposal is set to bypass the Public Safety committee and go straight to a vote. Apparently New Yorkers didn't learn after backlash from the expedited NY SAFE act. Perhaps the city council will get the message after more innocent people complain about being stopped/frisked when the only description for an armed robbery suspect will be "white t-shirt and blue jeans".
