This is a get-your-boots-on-ping, it’s pretty deep at the MPD.
Thanks, amm.

The law allows MPD personnel to make arrests only when there is probable cause to do so. The MPD cannot arrest every peaceful demonstrator for the sake of a few rowdy participants. There has not, and will never be a directive from Chief Cathy Lanier or a member of her command staff to do nothing when the law is being broken."

Well, if that's the case, then what's wrong with those police officers? Isn't assaulting a police officer a crime? Isn't vandalizing a crime? I'm thinking the police officers received a directive, otherwise I'm sure there were more laws broken than just those two that folks could have been arrested for.
