    NY Senate Passes Law That Makes It A Felony TO 'Annoy' A Cop

    The New York State Senate passed a bill today that “creates the crime of aggravated harassment of a police or peace officer. The bill (S.2402), sponsored by Senator Joe Griffo (R-C-I, Rome) would make it a felony to harass, annoy, or threaten a police officer while on duty.

    Now the HUGE question is, what constitutes 'annoying'

    I really think NY will be the first 'test case' for an all out police state

    That will have a tough time holding up in higher courts as what determines one's level of annoyance? All NY'ers annoy me, and I wish it were a crime, but it isn't. Obscenity went thru the same battle as what's obscene to one isn't obscene to another. Then again, some things might be worth a little jail time.

    Senator Griffo stated. “My bill would make it a crime to take any type of physical action to try to intimidate a police officer.
    So, now it will be even more illegal to attack a police officer??

    Does the man even own a dictionary? Or would he know how to use it if he had one? Tough questions, I know, but they had to be asked.

    The act, according to the document in the Blaze, requires physical contact.

    What remains to be seen, if it's enacted, is whether a NY officer, in the discharge of his duties, pushes into you, are you guilty of the crime?

    I've got no reason to touch a cop in the discharge of his job....

    Yeah, I got tapatalk, too. So what?
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    So if I tell them I do not consent to searching my vehicle and that annoys the officer, I am guilty of a felon? Of course they would be able to search the vehicle as part of the arrest then. Yeah, great law.

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    So you and a cop reach for the last doughnut and bump hands, do you go to jail?

    My apologies to the LEO's here, had to do it...

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
