If you’re black or Latino in Rochester, NY and you’re arrested for for even something as small as a violation, the Rochester, NY Police Deoartment will waste no time in releasing your mugshot, and Rochester, NY mainstream news media outlets will waste no time in plastering your mugshot all over the internet.
But if you’re a white man, say a white msn accused of intentionally driving a 4,000 pound Cadillac onto the front yard of a home and hitting and killing an innocent 3-year old boy, injuring his aunt, then fleeing the scene and hitting a vehicle injuring several people, before being captured and arrested, the Rochester, NY Police Department will protect you, and not release your mugshot.
That’s exactly what happened on Rochester, NY after Frank Casatta was arrested 5 days ago, after a fatal hit and run in which he intentionally hit and killed 3-year old Amir Palett
on Lyell Avenue in Rochester, NY.
It’s been almost a week since Casatta was arrested and the Rochester, NY Police Department has refused to release his mugshot.
Word on the street is Casatta has relatives in the Rochester, NY Police Department.
If Frank Casatta was black or Latino, his mugshot would have been released faster than you can say white privilege.
