@CrakrJak,
Agree with you almost 100%. I can understand him feeling it was an issue of "profiling" since the cop ONLY checked out the one black guy when, according to the article, other folks were out shovelling, too.

CaptKangaroo "Am I wrong to think that if a police officer... has committed a crime?"

The police officer didn't commit a crime here. Asking a few questions is not harassment or profiling.

Secondly, would you really want a policeman to just pass by 2 Russian looking men working on a pressure cooker, in a garage, for fear of being charged with "profiling"?

I'm not disturbed by the out-of-jurisdiction part.

Me neither! I`d bet the farm that both towns have "helping out" agreements which lets cops, ambulance and fire crews "cross the line" to give aid.

What else is the cop supposed to do? A report of a "black man shoveling snow" and he should... IGNORE a black man? Because that`s racist?

Of course the "no panhandling" law is pretty stupid to start with, but necessary in these times. It must have been a really slow day to get dispatched to enforce it though...

I'm not disturbed by the out-of-jurisdiction part. Police would say, and I have to agree, that if they see a crime or suspicious activity while they`re outside their jurisdiction, they are still cops, but they`re probably supposed to at least try to contact the local authorities if there`s no emergency. What I do find disturbing is, what if it WAS someone just trying to earn a few extra bucks? What was the cop going to do about that? Actually, come to think if it, maybe he was just looking for someone to do HIS driveway?
