New York City Bar Association Wants Code Relaxed

The New York City Bar Association is pushing the city council to ease a police code that defines any gathering of 50 or more people as a “parade” requiring a permit from the police department.
“The police will inevitably engage in a wide degree of selective and discretionary enforcement, which has the very real potential for becoming a means for suppressing particular points of view,” the group’s president, Barry Kamins, warned in the letter to Council Speaker Christine Quinn.
