It’s about tactics

The only time we can recall a Scarsdale police officer being accused of using excessive force it involved a middle-aged white guy, a resident, collecting beetles near the Heathcote Bypass back in 2002. Police drew guns on him and made him lie on the ground, handcuffed. The guy sued, but lost.

Our senator, Andrea Stewart-Cousins, who was just re-elected leader of the Senate Democratic Conference, sent out a very diplomatically worded press release on legislation she sponsored.
