I am just stunned.


The New York State Senate on Wednesday passed the bill that would make it a felony to "harass, annoy, threaten or alarm" an on-duty police officer.


www.foxnews.com...

If this passes the New York State Assembly...people will literally be liable to up to 4 years in jail, for simply annoying a Police Officer.

What exactly does that mean anyway?

What the @#$ is going on in America?

Definition of "annoy" -

Verb
Irritate (someone); make (someone) a little angry: "your cheerfulness annoyed me"; "rock music loud enough to annoy".


Apparently, they were very crafty slipping the word "annoy" in there. This one word alone will open a floodgate of Police abuse of Power in the future.
