Why would you be out and about without your ID? I don't get the purpose of that. Presumably, one would need said ID in order to use the credit card he stupidly thought the cops would take as a form of identification.

Did the subway platform have a cabaret license? You're not allowed to dance in New York City unless the place has a cabaret license.

They filed a federal lawsuit. They'll get an offer of $15k to settle.

Dancing on the subway platform could actually be pretty profitable if you don't mind getting thrown to the ground and a day in jail.

You dont need ID to use a credit card. WTF are you talking about.

Anyone want to defend cops now? Anyone? Anyone want to point out how the few "bad apples" spoil the reputation of the rest?

fark them. fark anybody wearing a gun and a badge. Evil is as evil does. Maybe you're nice to kittens and puppies in your off hours. You're participating willingly in an evil system, which makes YOU evil.

Common sense?

But don't worry liberals. Single-payer healthcare couldn't possibly lead to that kind of abuse of power by non-badge wearing functionaries.

So dancing with yourself is okay, then?

When I worked at a shiatty retail job and took credit cards it was strongly impressed on us that we do not ever ask for ID as a condition of accepting a card. It was against our merchant agreements to do so.

In this case, the small print has very little to do with reality. Fact is, if the back of the card is not signed, the transaction is not officially authorized by the card holder. None of my credit cards are signed, and no one has stopped a transaction because of it. I could dispute literally all of my transactions because I have not authorized any of them. I have been asked for my ID a total of two times, but only to verify the name on the card.

From the article: the credit card had the dentist's picture and signature.

What additional ID would she need to use the credit card? "Oh, well, I see this card has your picture and signature on it, but I need to see another piece of plastic with your picture and signature to verify that you carry two pieces of plastic for no reason."

/how did you read that sentence about the credit card and the cops, but manage to miss those nine words?
//probably the same way you missed that the dentist is female

I thought you Americans weren't required to carry I.D. because it was all "George Washington didn't, so..."

But what CC has a photo?

Also, dancing isn't hurting anyone and they appear a lot younger than 55.

Why would they need ID? They're not driving. You don't need ID to get on the subway or use a credit card. Unless they were picking up tickets at will-call, there's absolutely no reason they should be carrying ID.

This. My card has SEE I.D. printed in the signature box. I'm rarely asked for my ID.

what do you expect from the type that are willing to linger in the subway late at night with guns? you think these people are the creme of society? lots of scumbags have badges.

This is correct. It's also required that credit cards be signed by the cardholder. If someone has written "see ID" in the signature panel, the merchant is supposed to require them to sign their card before it is accepted.

Also this. But then again, if someone hands you an unsigned card, anyone could sign it and the signature would match.

Just checked my cards. Apparently I signed and wrote SEE ID on them. Double whammy! But I'm still rarely asked for ID.

I hope they win.

And cities need to start firing cops like this. They aren't doing their job and you can't afford to keep paying for them in court.

Why?

I've been making purchases with credit cards for twenty years and have never been asked to provide ID.
 
2012-07-08 03:19:06 PM  
Common sense should apply to citizens and cops.Did the dancing couple appear under the influence or endangering themselves or other people? If not, police could have suggested they stay back from the platform edge and just watch them until a train arrived. A badge does not mean LEOs are always right. It appears from the article that things went ballistic after the couple tried to video the incident.

As a general way of life, memorize your SSN and your state driver's license numbers. Cops can run those to get information on you. If you forget your ID sometimes those numbers can make things easier for evryone.

My CSB:
Working in a retail job, a customer hands me a credit card with their pic on the back right next to their "See ID" signature. When I ask to see an ID they get all mad and tell me that they don't need to give me an ID because their picture is on the back. Well duh, it's right next to the part that says "See ID"; I can see that. Why write it on the card if you don't want people to ask? Their answer: I wrote that before they put my picture on the card.
I'll let that sink in.

You're about 53 years too late, sorry.
