Transforming Rochester Podcast 6 - Rochester's Point System

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

This week Alex and Dave talk about the recent shooting outside the Rochester bar, Bug Jar.  The incident did not happen inside the bar and it was the Bug Jar who called the police, yet they were punished by the City of Rochester.  The City's point system continues to inhibit business owners from calling police for things going on around their businesses that they have nothing to do with.  Between the point system, racial profiling and "stop and frisk", it's no wonder we continue to have violent incidents around the city.  We discuss alternatives to the point system and current procedures.  Don't forget to sign the petition to get rid of the point system:  http://www.change.org/petitions/repeal-the-points-system-that-killed-deavoughn-hernandez-ruffin
