Not the Big Apple, the Big Toilet: Wacky NYC City Council passes new law making public urination and other quality of life crimes LEGAL

This is how Liberals destroy a great city in the name of minority rights. 
Somehow it’s racist to expect people of color to act civilized.  So the NYC City Council says it’s okay to take a piss in the city if the urges hits. 

Inquisitor reports New York City Council passed legislation making some violations like public urination, littering, making excessive noise, and turnstile jumping minor offenses. The new rules create civil penalties instead of criminal ones for “low-level offenses.”

Under a package of eight bills collectively known as the Criminal Justice Reform Act, police now have the option to issue a fine for certain violations instead of making an arrest. The Act is designed to hand out fairer punishments and ease the burden of the courts.

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s office seems to agree. Elizabeth Glazer, director of the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice, says the new rules will allow the city to maintain a high level of public safety, while keeping law enforcement and the courts focused on more serious crime.

“The administration supports creating the option for officers to issue a civil ticket in response to low-level offenses, such as littering. In appropriate low-risk cases, this will bypass criminal court altogether, avoiding the possibility of a warrant for failure to appear or a criminal conviction. The city also supports removing the possibility of jail time for many low-level offenses.”
