New York City Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. Proposes Crackdown on Crime by Costumed Characters by Registering/Licensing Them
With all the crime going on in NYC, this is what Libs are focusing on, eh?
Liberals never learn, NY City Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. thinks that licensing and registering costumed characters will prevent individuals from abusive behavior. HUH? Vallone’s knee-jerk ridiculous legislation is a result of the latest incident where a man wearing a Cookie monster costume allegedly shoved a 2-1/2 year old boy. However, Vallone stated this incident has just been the tip of the iceberg of costume character crimes. He stated, “We’ve had an anti-Semitic Elmo. We’ve had a groping Mario. And now we have a shoving monster,” And I might be old, but I don’t remember ‘Sesame Street’ being R-rated.” So let’s get this correct, registering people in costumes will prevent the crimes, assaults from occurring, really? Don’t individuals wear costumes to hide themselves from recognition when committing crimes? Is this the same reason why over-regulating local/state governments make kids selling lemonade buy a license as well, they are preventing crimes from occurring? This is just one more example of a liberal trying to make it look like they are doing something and really just trying to get a buck out of it.
The following story is brought to you by the letter “C” for crap and the number 100 for the licensing fee
New York City Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. introduced legislation Tuesday that would either ban or introduce tight regulations on costumed characters in New York City.
The proposal comes in the wake of several incidents involving the costumed characters in Times Square. Most recently, a man dressed as Cookie Monster from “Sesame Street” was arrested this past Sunday after allegedly shoving a 2 1/2-year-old boy.
Vallone told CBSNewYork.com that he had introduced two separate bills to combat the problems with costumed characters.
One bill would require registration, as well as a permission slip proving that the character involved has been licensed, for anyone appearing as a costumed character. The other bill would go farther to ban costumed characters outright.
Who honestly thinks that licensing some fool wearing a Cookie monster outfit is going to prevent them from committing a crime? Hey Libs, how many times do you need to be told, Costumes don’t commit crimes, people do.
