Blind and unable to do their job is what NYPD union officials say a new bill proposed by the city council would do to cops if it prevents them from using race, age, gender and more as identifying characteristics for law enforcement action, according to the Post.
The Post reported NYPD Captains Endowment Association President Roy Richter, who is the officer pictured in the “How effective is a police officer with a blindfold on?”-ad, saying these “are very important descriptive terms to let officers know who to look for.”
Introduction 800 of the Community Safety Act would prohibit “bias-based profiling.” Bias-based profiling in the bill is defined as “a member of the force of the police department or other law enforcement officer that relies on actual or perceived race, [ethnicity, religion or] national origin, color, creed, age, alienage or citizenship status, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or housing status as the determinative factor in initiating law enforcement action against an individual, rather than an individual’s behavior or other information or circumstances that links a person or persons [of a particular race, ethnicity, religion national origin] to suspected unlawful activity.” (emphasis added)
Because profiling is bad or something! More idiocy from the Left
