So now that Buffalo has demonstrated that we can arbitrarily name a street after any hate group we want or frankly anything we want...what is Buffalo going to do when people go out and droves with paint and start renaming all of your signs?
Where is the education committee meeting?
Stop being so quick to protect these rogue untrained unknowlegable racist police! This is two videos of these cops attempting to murder this man with a stick! Fire these cops now! Defund the police! Disband the whole f**king department! Petition for a new collective bargaining agreement with nys to get rid of the union! This must stop! This cannot happen again! https://www.facebook.com/100000853941371/posts/3487801964591567/
I was going to get a park shelter for my family picnic but the lady told me that you are only allowing 25 or less people and no dj I get the dj thing but why only 25 olr less people when the state is 50 or less
I seen this young man today on Kamper Avenue and he was cleaning up the streets and side walks. Came thru later and he was still doing it one house at a time
Dear Buffalo Common Council Police Oversight Committee: I sincerely hope you follow this case and see how soon it will be before Officer DeLong returns to the streets. Sincerely, Diane Elze, Buffalo resident
Dear Buffalo Common Council Police Oversight Committee: Well, now we have had Officer M. DeLong, a member of the Buffalo Police Department, being caught on film calling a federal employee "a cunt," and physically harassing her. Please tell us what you are going to do about this latest egregious action by a member of the Buffalo Police Department. Hopefully, the video of Officer DeLong, as well as the footage of Mr. Quentin Suttles' vicious beating by Buffalo police officers, will go viral around the country as examples of Buffalo's total lack of holding police accountable for their egregious behavior. Sincerely, Diane Elze, Buffalo resident
Dear Buffalo Common Council Police Oversight Committee Members: If you have not watched this footage of the brutal beating of Mr. Quentin Suttles by Buffalo police officers, please watch it. It is difficult and painful to watch. If you have watched it, how is it that you who have the power to take action have done nothing about this that we know of? How is it that you have not demanded of Mayor Brown that he immediately suspend the officers who nearly beat Mr. Suttles to death? Is the life of Mr. Suttles worth less than the life of Mr. Gugino? Sincerely, Diane Elze, Buffalo resident
Buffalo Common Council Police Oversight Committee: https://news.wbfo.org/post/buffalo-police-cover-name-tags-while-guarding-mayor-brown-s-house Please tell us what you are going to do about this. Sincerely, Diane Elze, Buffalo resident.
This is #NateBoyd, new candidate running for Masten District Buffalo Common Council. When this video was brought to my attention, I notified Nate I had evidence and proof that negates everything in this video and was willing to send it to him. He never responded. I then shared the video to my wall as people have been threatening to burn my house down and protest at my address due to the lies in the video. Apparently, not ALL BLACK LIVES matter as the 2 who live in my home are receiving threats because of this misinformation given by Carolette and shared by Mr. Boyd. It wasn't until I shared the video that Mr. Boyd THEN came on my post asking to message him the proof that disproves what this woman is claiming in the video. I sent Mr. Boyd all the proof that this video is being shared around with entirely false information. Mr. Boyd NEVER bothered to look at any of the proof, then just argued with me on another post, and then commented to the interviewee that he knew I did it. How do you know I did it if you didn’t even bother to look at the evidence? I believe Mr. Boyd’s decision to just assume I did this is completely discriminatory and as he refuses to even look at the evidence. Is this the type of Councilman we really want in the City of Buffalo? Someone trying to incite a race war on a victim? What good Councilman would just automatically assume someone did something without getting all the facts and reviewing the evidence? Is an individual not innocent until proven guilty? Why have you already made the decision in your head to disregard the evidence proving tis video is a lie? It’s completely abhorrent what Nate Boyd is doing. This is NOT how a candidate should conduct themselves to the public. He is now KNOWINGLY sharing around false information. Should anything happen to my children or my home due to the fake video being shared by Mr. Boyd, I will hold him personally liable in a Court of Law.
