Cleared After Arrest: Prosecutor Drops Charge Against Emily Good

Emily Good, the 28-year-old community activist who was arrested after recording Rochester Police make a traffic stop, is relieved she's no longer facing a criminal charge. But she's disturbed that the Rochester Police union continues to believe there was nothing wrong with her arrest. Since she was detained, a burglar stole the iPod she used to record her police confrontation. Plus her supporters received multiple parking tickets while they gathered at a meeting. Good and Rochester newspaper columnist, Erica Bryant, spoke with CNN's Don Lemon about the controversy.

    I am absolutely disturbed that the City of Rochester New York is WASTING valuable resources (which are quickly running out). Why isn't Rochester putting its resources towards such silliness, instead of actually crimes that are being committed... Utterly disgusted about this!!

    After watching these so call "Activists" i.e. authority/cop haters harass the Rochester Police on CNN News. It is my opinion that lawmakers should make it clear that interfering with police business is potentially dangerous for the parties involved & the public nearby; but that it should be illegal!

    They wonder why they receive threats when they are basically terrorizing Ms. Good and her supporters.
