Yesterday, The Onion released this “story” about the NYPD’s Stop and Kiss program. It is an obvious parody of the Stop and Frisk controversy in New York City.
Not everyone understood the joke: these people took to twitter with outrage, because they thought it was real. It’s a must-read in ridiculousness from Gothamist.
Of course they would think it’s real. They don’t have time to stop-and-think.
