NYPD Now Made Up Of Lonely Buxom Blondes

lady-cop

Attention suspected gang members! That attractive stranger-lady trying to friend you on Facebook might be interested in you for reasons that go beyond your sexy profile pic and “single” relationship status.

According to reports by The Village Voice, The New York Daily News, and The New York TImes, the NYPD is turning to social media based tactics after “stop and frisk” was ripped away from them due to its unfortunate unconstitutionality. Specifically, they’re using Facebook and Twitter to spy on young men they suspect of being in gangs. Even more specifically, they’re making up fake profiles for comely young women in the hopes that their quarries will respect their friend requests, letting them into their salacious world of crime. Does anyone else smell catfish?

Long known as an untrustworthy keeper of our personal information, Facebook wouldn’t exactly surprise anyone if it came to light that they gave the cops permission to do this, but it seems from the non-response that they gave the Village Voice that it’s at least possible that the NYPD is doing this without Facebook’s knowledge (then again, if this is anything like PRISM, Facebook is legally barred from talking about it):

“We have nothing to share on this specific case. However, more generally on background it is a violation of our policies [see section 4: https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms] to use a fake name or operate under a false identity, and we encourage people to report anyone they think is doing this, either through the report links we provide on the site or through the contact forms in our Help Center.”

Well, I know what I’ll be doing with my Friday night. False profile reporting party at my house!

And maybe I’m just feeling emo today, but is there anything worse than finding out that, in addition to being charged with a crime—during which the burden of proof is now on you to show this type of surveillance to be unconstitutional—that big booty-ed ray of sunshine in your (allegedly) sad gangbanging life is actually a 50-year-old Irish-American police officer from Queens named Harvey McCallister? That fucking blows.

Then again, if this operation is anywhere as smooth as the one the Boston cops did to try to bust area DIY shows by posing as fans and asking people “what time is the punk rock concert?”, NYC-area youth have nothing to fear.

    Speaking for Harvey McCallister I have to say, how dare you call him out like that!!!

  • Dude

    My ex had an outfit just like that.

    • President Broke Obummer

      I wish I had an ex who had an outfit like that….

    • Dude

      I would be more than happy to let you have her. The uniform is free as well. There might be a few small maintenance fees and handling charges.

    • President Broke Obummer

      That’s funny….I’m thinking the fees and handling charges go on for as long as you own the vehicle, right?

    • Dude

      You know Pres..you seem like a nice guy, so I’ll wave all the charges and turn her over for free. At any rate she’ll drain your bank account faster than I ever could. Good Luck.

    If you are stupid enough to use social media, a public forum, you deserve what you get. How can it be illegal for the NYPD to catch and prosecute gang members?

    • Jimsatwit

      Says the guy using some form of social media to comment,

  • Real man

    Uh, this girl is ugly!

    • Janedear

      I would hardly call her “ugly”. More like, YOU are UTTERLY SPOILED by seeing constant air brushed pictures. Most of the models you see look about as cute as her (without all the airbrushing).
      Oh, and she is cute.

  • Kevin Davitt

    that’s actually not a bad idea.

  • PJ72

    She doesn’t look very buxom to me.

  • Janedear

    So, it is a BAD THING to try and catch gang bangers now.
    So bad, that an entire news article is dedicated to giving scum the “heads up”.
    Got it.

    Right is wrong, and wrong is right, today.

    I don’t recognize my country any more.
