Most of the 11 people who told the Journal Sentinel they were attacked or witnessed the attacks on their friends said that police did not take their complaints seriously. They each said police responded to the scene quickly and tended to the injured, but officers did not take statements from them and told them to leave the area.
Boldfaced emphasis added by me.
The Police Commissioner and the Chief of Police should be fired and stripped of their pensions. All the responding officers who refused to take statements should be fired and stripped of their pensions.
No more of this bullshit.
