An open letter to Cincinnati’s Fraternal Order of Police regarding Mayoral candidate Dr. Brad Wenstrup’s proposed secret monitoring program of Cincinnati Police.
To Whom It May Concern:
Recently, I had the opportunity to record Dr. Brad Wenstrup speaking to the Cincinnati NAACP about his mayoral campaign. You can see the video here: http://tinyurl.com/l3ntt3
At about 14 minutes and 20 seconds into the questions (you can jump ahead on the video file if you wait for the whole thing to load after hitting the play button), Wenstrup makes the following claim in response to a question: “I’m pro-police-community relations, because I don’t believe the relations there are fair or just ... I’m in favor of a situation like New York did, where police are monitored by undercover people to see how they’re treating people.”
What position does the FOP take on such a program? Should the Cincinnati police department have outside; undercover agents monitor how your officers treat people?
Thanks, and I look forward to your reply.
