CHICAGO (RebelPundit) - Chicago Police Sergeant Herbert Brown, Jr., told red-light camera protesters they needed a permit to put ‘slanderous’ messages on their signs and compared the protesters to “gang members” this past Saturday.
The officer was dispatched to a protest against the city’s controversial red light/speed cameras on Chicago’s South Side and according to one protester, Sergeant Brown arrived in “belligerent” fashion to “take charge” of the demonstration. A YouTube video posted of the exchange shows Brown telling the demonstrators they are “just as bad” as “gang members.”
Scott Davis, candidate for Alderman in the 44th ward and staunch opponent of the city’s red light/speed camera program, told RebelPundit that Brown changed his harsh tune once he realized he was being recorded—but that didn’t stop him from continuing to harass the protesters, and at one point threaten to arrest to Davis.
