INTRO 650 IS ALL WRONG - CIVIL LIBERTIES WILL BE GONE

A bill in New York City
Means that if you test the air,
You can be stopped by any cop,
Asking why you're sampling there.
If they don't like your answer,
They will have the discretion
To charge you with a brand new crime,
Illegal detector possession.

After 9/11,
The Feds and City lied.
They said the air was safe to breathe,
Some got sick and others died.
Independent testers
Were called to test anew.
No permits kept them from their task,
And they found a toxic brew.
* * * *
Communities of color
Have soaring asthma rates.
Detectors help them track bad air,
While the City procrastinates.
Too many bus garages,
Power plants, waste transfer stations.
We need to freely test the air
To fight these installations.
* * * *
Say that you oppose the bill.
