Basking in the viral glory bestowed upon one of its officers this week, the Rochester Police Department resorted to petty retaliatory and intimidation tactics against citizens attending a community meeting Thursday afternoon.
The citizens were attending a meeting to discuss the arrest of Emily Good, the 28-year-old woman who was jailed for videotaping cops from her front yard, when they realized cops were outside issuing tickets for having parked more than 12 inches from the curb.
The above video shows cops using a little purple ruler to prove their case.
Cops claimed they were responding to citizens who had complained about the cars being parked more than a foot from the curb!
The citizens who had been ticketed were attending a community meeting to discuss police accountability and to plan support for Good, whose video became a viral sensation after it was uploaded this week.
