Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren releases statement regarding increasing crime
After an increase in violent crimes over the weekend, Mayor Lovely Warren released the follow statement.
"All weekend the parties, the fights and shindigs. Each one trying to out do the other. For what? For your grandparent, parent or child to contract the virus. You must like what people say about our community. Calling us fools and spewing hateful rhetoric and other names. It breaks my heart to constantly hear...lock them up, throw tear gas on them, treat them like animals...put them in cages.Social Media fame is so important that you would risk exposing your family to a virus that could possibly kill them. Our children deserve to see adults in this community acting better. The trauma their experiencing today will be with them for life. I’m not asking you to act better for me. I’m asking you to do better for our children. We will reap, what we sow."
