Police Harass Community Members Attending Meeting in Support of Emily Good
Several people received tickets alleging they had parked more than 12 inches from the curb. The fine was marked as $35. Throughout the evening the police continued to circle the streets surrounding the Flying Squirrel.


This was obviously not simply someone calling to complain about the cars being parked to far from the curb, this was deliberate. Police do not come out to write tickets because of a complaint, then continue to remain on scene like this. People need to be removed from office over this stunt.

Isn't there a system in place that allows members of the public to get copies of such records? If there was a public complaint I'd love to see it.

For someone who loved to write out a long line of devil advocate questions for me to answer,that ended with"see where I`m going with this?" you sure are definite now aren`t ya.

see where I`m going with this?


Yup- properly chastised. In my defense I am basing this on training and experience though

Yeah this cop tried to make out she commited an offense as well.


And in doing so screwed aforementioned canine.

How could you make it happen and be honest about it? to me it would be about 50/50 so I`m game.

I`m not short of a dollar.


Damned if I know

That might depend on the state, I can check my area online and get a nice list with maps of all calls and responses. I am sure its most likely public record, but you may have to go to the clerk of the court, and pay a fee to get that information.

Edit to add;
Now I think about it, I am sure that calls for service are public record because they are used to generate crime statistics used by news agencies. Its simply a matter of finding out how to get the info.

About every department I worked for recorded calls incoming and outgoing.

Not sure about Rochester and what local/state laws say about consent. NC was one party so we were good to go with it and it was a HUGE blessing to have.

I would have to park farther then that away from a curb so my ex-wifes grandmother would have room to stand and stabilise herself with her cane.

If drivers cannot park within 12 inches of the curb, then they should NOT be driving in the first place


That is not fair, what about drivers that find it hard to see the curb like the blind ones... What about them eh!

In a city of over 200,000 people, you knew every PITA on sight?

Just to be fair Kitilani, SFA437 didn`t state that he worked in that particular town that I know of.

But thanks for getting the population of Rochester.

What would that be about 15-20 police officers?

To how many community activists? 40-100?

The lady with the camera was in the dark while the offending officer was busy hand cuffing the innocent guy.

I`m still firm on the bet that he didn`t know of her until after the arrest.

Still If you can figure out a way to know,I`m in.

Oh, I know that. But unless the town he worked in is of the same population size, his comparison about how a Rochester cop should know people because he knew people makes no sense and I am sure he meant to make sense.

Wether he knew the lady or not, this thread is about the very real action of police retaliation by this entire police force. It doesn't matter if she called him an f'in pig or anything else.

Edit: if this was done for reasons of spite due to that earlier incident that occurred there, then I do not agree with it. But if it was done purely for the sake of penalizing horrible parking jobs, than I am all for it.

A darn monkey can park a car within 12 inches of a curb for crying out loud...

I can think of better things the police could be doing instead of using a ruler to measure how far a car has parked away from a curb. Like, oh I dunno, CATCHING REAL CROOKS?!?!?!?!?


If I was those policemen I would be resigning from shear boredom, let alone being stymied in my job capacity as police officer.

It does not matter if people are "idiots" for parking 12.5 inches vs 12 inches from the curb - and anyone making that argument in defense of this should be ashamed. This is clearly police intimidation. This type of thing went on in the black community for decades but now it is happening to everyone because we are all equal in the sight of law enforcement - we are all seen "sub-human" slaves.

It was not too long ago I felt that when the country collapsed that we could rely upon our soldiers and our police to restore the balance but in the past few years I've come to realize that was a bit too optimistic. It is becoming more and more difficult to tell the difference between our police and military and those of the communist and fascist nations that murdered millions because they were following orders.

That is all I can think of in this case - they are consciously choosing to intimidate citizens so how far could they go before they crossed the line in their own minds? I sort of feel sorry for them though because when the nation falls they are going to be on the front lines and vastly outnumbered and given all of these cases which have been pounded in to the public view only a small percentage will come to their defense.

I guess we are seeing exactly how “fairly and fully” Police Chief Sheppard’s investigation into this incident is going to be conducted…



Oh, poo, here, I'll give you the results as seen in my blue crystal ball:

"After a complete and thorough investigation of the officer in question by his peers meeting in secret, we have determined that the officer acted entirely within the law and the policies of the department"

I say way to go for the cops and I'll tell you why. I work for a lawncare company so I have have to drive through neighborhoods all day. You have knucleheads that cant park so instead of risking scratching up their $2k rims, they park about 2 feet off the curb. When you have this going on on both sides of the road, you just made the street into a one-lane. Not only does this congest the area but increases accidents. I'm sure the police would much rather write tickets then write up accident reports. As far as retaliation, we really don't know. Are they doing this in other neighborhoods? Has someone been complaining about the street being crowded? Going back to the video, she said or did something that told the officer that she was trying make the police look bad. Most cops won't care if they were recorded because it protects them as well from false accusations. When you have someone obviously anti-police, they know that they aren't recording to make sure everything goes the way its suppose to, they are targeting them.

Why are you going off topic about another thread, this is not about what happened the night the woman was arrested, this is about the very OBVIOUS retaliation by the police force in order to defend and protect the "brotherhood".

There is a very real problem with actual violent crime in Rochester, and its no wonder when the ones they trust to "clean up" the streets are in fact engaged in this type of activity
