You may remember Emily Good, the Rochester woman arrested earlier this year for videotaping a traffic stop from her front yard.
When last we visited the story, Goodís neighbors had held a rally for her. Then Rochester police showed up at that rally, and began writing tickets for those attendees who parked more than 12 inches from the curb. The cops even brought rulers.
Monroe County District Attorney Michael Green declined to charge Good, because, well, because she didnít break any law. This has apparently invoked the wrath of the police union. Green isnít running for reelection, but one of his lieutenants running for the job. The police union has endorsed her opponent, and the Good case appears to be a big reason why.
Doorley said she thinks her prosecution of corruption within the Greece Police Department and the decision not to prosecute Emily Good, who was arrested while video recording a police traffic stop, thwarted her chances for law enforcement support.Imagine the unionís reaction if the DAís office had done what it should have done--criminally charge the cops who arrested Good for illegally detaining her.
