The New York Police Department just updated its guide for nightclub owners on how to spot patrons who might be armed or carrying a bomb.But anyone who’s shown his face in a nightclub lately knows that the NYPD’s list of “suspicious” behaviours would implicate pretty much anyone who spends more than five minutes amid the raging heat and thumping music.
According to the New York Daily News:
The 27-page booklet, titled “Best Practices for Nightlife Establishments,” advises owners to be cautious about nervous customers who are sweating profusely and with “bulging veins in the neck.”
Other helpful tips on how to spot would-be terrorists include being alert to people with “visible wires and tape” protruding from their clothing and “individuals who are obviously disguised,” according to the NYDN.
In addition to the terrorist-catching tips, the NYPD booklet also provides some good ways for club owners to spot another obvious group of patrons–the drunk ones.
From the NYDN:
The booklet also has plenty of tips on how to spot plastered patrons, advising they’re usually the ones with slurred speech and bloodshot eyes who appear “sick, confused, abusive, profane, antagonistic or incoherent.”
