Talk about a blind justice system. The latest New York City Council push is for police to shut their eyes to a suspect’s gender, race, age and disability, out of concern that such descriptions constitute unfair profiling.
The New York Post reported that police unions are rallying in opposition, putting out a public relations campaign that includes a uniformed and blindfold-wearing officer with the caption: “How effective is a police officer with a blindfold on?”

Sorry, the link somehow ended up in the title if someone would care to fix it.

The union is warning that under this proposal, police would be able only to issue alerts for wanted suspects based on the color of clothing — or else face the risk of a profiling lawsuit, the Post reported. And the bill is headed toward fast-track vote. The Post reported that bill’s sponsor, Democratic Council Member Jumaane D. Williams, and Speaker Christine Quinn have agreed to bypass the committee process and bring it up to the full council for a vote.

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg’s office said the measure could lead to a flurry of lawsuits from suspects who claim they were illegally profiled, the Post reported.


Why does this not surprise me? :no:

It boggles the mind doesn't it? First the news started trying to leave out descriptions of perps and now New York expects cops not to give accurate descriptions of suspects to each other? :rolleyes:

Just because it is a mystery to YOU doesn't make it unexplained.

Since when did the word "profiling" become a bad thing in the context of law enforcement?

All I can say about the direction western society is taking is God help us... we are quickly losing the sense to survive.  It's rather bizarre to watch.

This is the most absurd thing I've ever heard. Not even gender?!?! Jesus. Be on the look out for a person with clothes on. My god, now everyone is a suspect. It's a perfect excuse to spy on everybody because with this kind of idiotic law enforcement you'd have to.

Did anybody check TheOnion to see if this really came from there. If not, we are becoming a world according to the onion.
