NYPD scolds tourist for wearing distracting short skirt

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?”

As politicians and the mainstream media continue to insist that America is divided and at each other's throats, Dr. Ben Carson has a different message. He joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to discuss his time in the Trump administration and how we move forward and heal America. Overall, he says, we must realize "Americans are NOT each other's enemies."

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.
