Rochester, NY Mayor Lovely Warren
By Davy V.
As Rochester, NY Police Chief, James Sheppard gave free range to rogue, corrupt cops who racially profiled, abused and violated citizens' civil rights.
Especially African-Americans and Latinos.
Rochester Police Chief James Sheppard was known for his heavy handed police tactics, with no regard for citizens' constitutional rights.
In a 2012 press conference Chief Sheppard announced the Rochester, NY Police Department's "Zero Tolerance" policy.
"If you're riding a bike and it doesn't have a bell, we're gonna stop you, if it doesn't have lights, we're gonna stop you."
As Rochester, NY Police Chief, James Sheppard not only believed in racial profiling, he encouraged it.
Chief Sheppard believed and supported stop and frisk.
As Rochester Police Chief, James Sheppard lacked leadership.
He lacked transparency.
