NYPD Makes It Easier For Cops To Kick Your Ass

Posted: June 30, 2011 by Keith Stone in crime and punishment, the police

With a little paperwork, the NYPD is now making it easier for its cops to use force to control troublemakers. The Finest have started using a new stop and frisk form with an area to explain why force was needed. Such reasons include “suspect flight” or “defense self.” Luckily, there’s also a checkbox for “other” for officers who “just wanted to act like a big man” or “compensated for my low self esteem and alcohol problem.” The New York Civil Liberty Union decried the new measure as a way to justify wrongfully stopping minorities, but if this helps the police to check out a shady looking guy in a turban who’s talking to himself, I’m all for it. At least there isn’t a checkbox that says “black.”
