The Hypocrisy of the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority

So apparently it’s not a crime for a Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority to tell a member of the public that they’re going to break their fucking face, but it is a crime for a member of the public to yell at an NFTA cop while on a public street during a anti-war protest. And if you do such a thing, you’ll be chased down by NFTA police, assaulted with pepper spray, and unlawfully arrested for practicing your First Amendment rights.

From BuffaloNews.com:

NFTA spokesman Doug Hartmayer said that neither Brodsky nor Russo would be disciplined. 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.
