NFTA Director Kimberley Minkel defended Brodsky’s spraying of Buckley as “a use [of force] within our guidelines.” She called Brodsky’s actions in the bus terminal episode “a closed case. … We look at each event independently.”

Nothing but the finest heroes at the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority.
