Bill would make annoying a cop a crime.


ALBANY, N.Y. (WIVB) - A bill currently making its way through the State Legislature would make it a crime to annoy a police officer, a move that could have far reaching consequences.

The State Senate passed the bill Wednesday that makes it felony to "harass, annoy, or threaten a police officer while on duty." The bill was sponsored by local Senators Pat Gallivan, George Maziarz and Michael Ranzenhofer, as well as Senator Joe Griffo (R) of Rome.

Anyone found guilty under the bill, should it become law, could face up to four years in prison.

The Bill says "aggravated harassment" but the definition can be found here:


S 240.33 AGGRAVATED HARASSMENT OF A POLICE OFFICER OR PEACE OFFICER. A PERSON IS GUILTY OF AGGRAVATED HARASSMENT OF A POLICE OFFICER OR PEACE OFFICER WHEN, WITH THE INTENT TO HARASS, ANNOY, THREATEN OR ALARM

Speechless. Really. I'm at a loss.

Bloomberg with his "stop and frisk" and now the state legislature with this.

Recently, there has been a state sovereignty movement and mention of states like Texas discussing succession or legally leaving the Unites States.

Conversely, would there be a way to force NY out of the U.S? Maybe build a wall around the entire state and turn into a prison?

Start a White House petition?

Its completely arbitrary.

As it is, they can assault anyone they want and claim "resisting arrest".

Now you can be arrested for "annoying" a cop? The word "insane" does not adequately describe NY law makers. Maniacal maybe?

Wow thats is insane...here in the UK the law was changed so it is not an offence to swear at a cop call him/her names etc as long as you do it in a manner that is not threatening.
Police serve us the people both sides of the pond and some coppers forget this.
I hope this bill doesn't pass because I planned to go all Huggy bear on a Police when I next visit NYC.

10th amendment gone awry!


Too bad they don’t allow laws against stuff that annoys New Yorkers.

I didn't loose anything there and I sure as hell won't visit.A job might force me to BRIEFLY to pass through but nothing more same with the other three stooges California,Detroit and Chicago.
Colorado will have an adjustment underway as we remove prog socialists from state postions.

Hey some of us don't want to be trapped in this hell forsaken state!


This just takes my breath away that the lawmakers are so full of themselves they'll introduce something like this.

Well if the president was to get kidnapped there we could send Kurt Russell to save him...


So if I was to tell a cop that I didn't want to sign a ticket (which is my right because signing a ticket is admission to guilt) , and he decides that annoys him I could spend 4 years in prison?

How dose that not break constitutional rights?

You have freedom of speech?? I thought we did, too.

…in theory

NO HUGGY BEAR!! The NYPD will spray anybody these days!



You might get away with it being from another country....provided you're not holding a 32oz soft drink or wearing an NRA shirt.

It annoys me when people chew with their mouths open.

I am sure that it would annoy some cops too.

So a person could be convicted of a felony if they chewed with their mouth open.

Our country is really going to hell quickly.

32oz drink? they ban that also? thats only 1.5 pints...
confused, is that any drink?
even beer?

This will likely cover videotaping police, or talking to them while an arrest (or a beating) is in progress. NY police are probably laughing into their donuts and coffee today.

I wonder if Gov. Cuomo will sign this if it passes. He wants very much to run for president in '16 (to uphold the family non-tradition), and signing this will put him on the side of the control-freaks while not signing it could make him look like a hero of the people. And the courts, hard to imagine this will pass through the courts without being overturned, but who knows.

NO!!!

I think if it's beer, marijuana, meth or coc aine then 32oz is totally legal! It has to be something they don't profit from for it to be a crime!

Just avoid the soft drinks because those corporations aren't headquartered in NY so NY has no stake in the profits!

I am quite sure that is the hidden intent of this bill. As I remember I do believe either a DCA or the USSC recentlt ruled that video taping of a cop was in fact legal. I will have to do some searching on that but I am sure this is just a sneaky attempt to circumvent the courts ruling.

Hello police state!

It is sugary drinks, salt and saturated fats that Mayor Bloomberg has been on the warpath about.

Never mind the heroin that is still for sale on the street corners.... he's worried about the health of New Yorker.

Same thing!

Look, you can’t cheat the system here, man!! You can’t buy 2 16oz drinks and think you’re going to get over on the NYPD!! They’re a vigilant bunch! Bastards will have drones tracking your every move!!

You think you’re slick over there in UK with your million camera system. We have remote control airplanes with cameras, brother!! You can’t hide from Big Brother!!


What a world we live in, huh?

They'll pull a card from the ATF deck and call it "constructive possession."

And now If you look at a cop the wrong way you get 4 years in prison....madness.
Does a cop get more bucks in their paycheck for putting people away? I hope not.


One last question what are the penalties for having a 32oz cup O pop?

In all honesty, I think there are many cops nationwide who would use a “don’t look at me wrong” law inappropriately. When you give people power they’ll use it to it’s fullest extent.

However, I don’t think this law will be around long before its challenged and overturned in the court system (our Constitution trumps unconstitutional laws).

This is a display of the 10th amendment gone awry. Some state legislators get drunk on power and have a God complex. They’ll be put in their place soon enough by the courts and the citizens………I hope!
