We continue our coverage on the story of Emily Good – a Rochester, New York woman arrested after recording police making a traffic stop. More accusations of unfair arrests are coming out, including one from a local lawmaker. Willie Lightfoot is a Monroe County Legislator, a Rochester firefighter, and a businessman. He spoke with CNN's Don Lemon about police relations in his community.
Keep up the good work Emily. I wish more people cared about citizens' rights
These officers are trying to do their job. Someone getting in their face, distracting them, trying to talk to the person being charged, IS disorderly conduct. LET the officer do their job and stay out of their way.
That's great, distract them by filming and being a nuisence and then the person being charged harms the officers. Wouldn't you feel like an idiot then? Being distracted when lives are at risk is dangerous. And you are foolish to be a part of that.
Police have one of the hardest jobs in North America, with the highest stess levels. Constantly having to look out for the community and their own lives. Policemen are killed every day, leaving behind families to grieve. My spouse is a police officer and we are so tired of the judgement and complaints. Regardless, he has still been a very understanding and compassionate officer and has been there for people at the worst moments of their lives.
Let them come to your job and follow you around and film you, I guarentee you will be distracted.
