NYPD not killing enough citizens that the DA has a task force looking for twitter users who make fun of them?

BATMANATEE: Saying stupid shiat in public has consequences.


Except that this is a known, bona fide parody account. If NYPD was demanding tape of Stephen Colbert claiming on his show that he'd done it as "part of their investigation," I'd like to think you'd have sense enough to say that at best NYPD was being stupid and at worst it is a chilling reaction to protected speech.

This isn't some guy making a joke with the stewardess about having a bomb on a plane. It's a known parody account and NYPD, in their desperation to hang someone for PD's failure, is stepping way the hell over the crazytown line.

You'd think we would be done here.

They are probably spending more money and resources investigating this prank than they are the Eric Garner case.

I think we're going to need to waterboard you to find out who perpetrated the changing of the flags.  Please reply with your street address, and we'll be right over.  Sincerely, NYPD

Of course, now they're going to have to arrest Chester Higgins, Jr., of the NYT for taking a picture of a bridge. The idiot even put his name on the photo.

So, maybe I jumped the gun a bit and missed the fact that the Twit was well known.

Admitting you're wrong and being polite about it?

That's even more offensive than your original offense!

The prosecutor's office clearly has far too much manpower on its hands.
