That Could Soon Earn You 4 Years in Jail | TheBlaze.comThe 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.

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?
It could be worse!
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.
