The Blaze posted a story this morning about a girl who was pulled over by a NYPD officer for wearing a skirt that was too short. Stu decided to launchhis own investigation to determine whether or not the police overstepped their bounds or if it was a valid and justifiable action.
A Dutch tourist says that during a visit in early May, she was questioned by a New York City police officer after he saw her riding her bike in Lower Manhattan while donning a short skirt. According to her, he said her outfit was “dangerous” because she was distracting drivers.
“He said it’s very disturbing, and it‘s distracting the cars and it’s dangerous,” Rijcken told the New York Daily News. “I thought he was joking around but he got angry and asked me for ID.”
Rijcken, 31, was not given a ticket, but she was reprimanded. Unfortunately, she also didn‘t get the officer’s name. Because of that, the NYPD says it can’t really look in to her story.
“She's sitting on a bike. And the way she's sitting on a bike, remember she's he not just standing there in this outfit. She's riding a bike in this outfit. That skirt's blowing straight up. As she drives down the street, she's wearing nothing, effectively nothing on her bottom half. Look at the way, it's just dangling off the back of the seat. That thing's just blowing up with any motion,” Stu said as part of his investigation.
“We don't know the undergarment situation here, which may have been minimal or none under here.”
“See, right now she's got cheeks on seat right now. And as soon as she starts in motion, the thing's blowing up and everything's out there. The whole package is out there. This is almost Weinergate part two.”
Because she’s from out of the country, Stu believes the bike must be rented.
“She's sitting on a rented bike cheek to seat. I mean, this whole thing is falling apart. You're talking about disease. Who knows what you're spreading around when you're sitting there cheek to seat. This whole thing's blowing up. The whole thing's going down here! The whole system's getting turned upside down! Cheek to seat on a rented bike? Who does that?”
