A chaotic scene unfolded this past weekend in Democrat-controlled Rochester, New York, when officers tried to control and arrest an armed wanted man resisting arrest as about a dozen bystanders yelled at officers, hurled insults, and rejected warnings to back away from the incident. In the video, taken and posted online by a bystander (view below), officers can be heard yelling at bystanders to back up, noting that the male suspect they are battling to the ground, who was wanted for multiple felonies, has a gun. As officers use force to restrain the suspect to the ground, bystanders continuously walk toward the scuffle and yell at officers for “choking” the man and hurl other insults, like, “s*** my d***,” and “y’all a piece of s***.” One or more of the bystanders also tell a black officer, “you’re black,” as he tries to backup the bystanders. One group, though, is offering officers support. The Rochester Police Locust Club issued a statement slamming the rush to demonize officers and emphasized the risk these men and women on the force persistently face, particularly in Rochester.
