Reforming Police Encounters started this petition to Rochester City Council and

On Friday 1/29/21, Rochester Police again dominated world headlines. After the inhuman murder of Daniel Prude in March of last year, and even after Mayor Lovely Warren fired the former Police Chief, RPD was caught on bodycam footage terrorizing an already victimized 9yr old black girl. The released footage can be seen at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d99ijzUljik

In the video, officers can be seen pepper spraying the victim in an attempt to gain compliance. Officers can also be seen treating the young girl with no care whatsoever, throwing her into the snow and rolling her around in it.

In august, after DELAYING THE RELEASE OF DANIEL PRUDES MURDER INFORMATION, mayor Warren fired the Police Chief and appointed an interim, stating there is a "pervasive problem" among the police force.

RPD also failed to utilize the newly created crisis response resources created specifically for these types of scenarios.

With this knowledge, and with so much on the line - We are demanding the immediate disbanding of ALL RPD PATROL OFFICERS and reforming the teams from scratch.

This level of domestic terrorism can no longer be tolerated, and Unions can no longer viably use anti-intellectualism and lies to bolster and appropriate rogue elements within police forces. We are also asking that the State investigate the Rochester Police Locust Club for terrorist or corrupt activities immediately.
