Tonight, 40 or so people came down to City Hall in Rochester, NY to speak out against the police brutality that occurred last Wednesday at a peace rally and the surveillance and intimidation of protesters afterward. Situations like that can get pretty heated and tense so it was really nice of whoever is in charge of security at these things to provide us with a familiar face to act as a calm, peaceful influence.
Whom did they choose?
Why the same officer who was in the lead, beating people up last Wednesday. How thoughtful of the RPD! Someone should send them flowers...or at least a nice thank you note.
By the way, everyone there did a great job speaking. Let's see if City Council will do the job they were elected to do.
