After Video of Rochester, NY officer Lucas Krull Beating a Pregnant Woman Goes Viral, Are Rochester, NY Cops Trying to Send a Message by Having a Black Monkey Hanging from a Cruiser?


By Davy V.

You will read this here first, as no other sources, especially Rochester, NY’s Corporate-America run, mainstream news media will  probably not touch this!

An interesting, and disturbing photo has surfaced showing a black, stuffed monkey, or orangutan of some sort, hanging from a Rochester, NY Police cruiser’s mirror.

A man walking saw this and took the photo you see on the right.

This comes on the heels where Rochester, NY Police officer was caught on video driving a pregnant woman into a wooden porch railing post, then punches her in the head with a closed fist, and throws her to the ground.

Disturbing comments throught the internet, especially on YouTube, are referring to the woman

who was punched, 21-year old Brenda Haradaway, as a “monkey”, other comments go as far as saying that police should have tasered all the “porch monkeys”.

Which is why it’s not only very interesting, but extremely disturbing that Rochester Police officers are driving around with a black monkey hanging from their car.

I wonder what Chief Sheppard will have to say about this.
