Gravity Knife ban has led to thousands of unconstitutional and downright illegal arrests.
NEW YORK CITY – William Urrego was walking through the Port Authority on his way to work when a police officer stopped him in the bus terminal.
The officer asked for the knife clipped to his pocket, then handcuffed him, arrested him and took him to the precinct, he said.
“It’s needed to unpack everything that comes in bulk,” said Mr. Urrego, 36 years old, of the red-handled folding knife he used to open boxes in a New Jersey warehouse. His case is scheduled to be dismissed.
This is just one of thousands of similar stories since New York City’s knife ban.
