Matter of Opinion

Human rights forum

Chief Kirkpatrick is hosting a human rights forum this evening. Will you be attending? If so, what's your main concern?

"Come prepared to voice your opinions on tolerance, diversity, respect and dignity in interactions between police officers and the public," Kirkpatrick wrote in a letter sent to many of the protesters arrested by police that day or who had contacted the department afterward.

"We ask that you follow only one rule: To act within the bounds of civility and respect," Kirkpatrick wrote. "We'll do the same and the meeting will be valuable and rewarding."
