    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.

    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".

    Stupid -- though I guess that makes it easy. "Suspect was wearing a black hoodie and jeans." Stop EVERYBODY in a black hoodie & jeans...

    Wasn't someone complaining about NYPD doing too many stop and frisks before? :

    PC has gotten totally ridiculous. Nowadays anything you do is going to cause somebody to be butt hurt and they are going to whine like a 3 year old. (No offense intended to any particular 3 year old or 3 year olds as a group).

    Yep. I have a case pending now where the kid's gonna essentially get off and just do community service for some weed because there's an argument about whether I had grounds to stop them. H'mm... Car parked on the side of the street, late at night, not in front of any houses and on the opposite side of the street from the houses... Nothing suspicious there.
