BarkingUnicorn: Profedius: Identifying the characteristics of a suspect in not racial profilingNo, but the characteristics constitute a profile. Stopping someone solely because he fits a profile is what this bill aims to end. It also encompasses gender, age, and other types of profiles, not just racial profiles.The cops will have to work like this:"Be on the lookout for a black male, approximately 20 to 25 years old, wearing... if you see a person fitting this description AND he is doing something that arouses reasonable, specific, articulable suspicion, you may stop him."The "reasonable suspicion" part is what NYPD has been ignoring.
