Friedman Asks the Question
In the interview yesterday on @Issue, Mayor William Hallenbeck said, on the subject of the City Hall break-in, "My question to the police department: Is the investigation ongoing?" Tonight at the end of a special Common Council Police Committee meeting, convened to discuss the Hudson Police Department's request for a new patrol car, Alderman John Friedman (Third Ward) asked that very question of Chief Ellis Richardson and Commissioner Gary Graziano. Graziano was the one who responded, saying that he had "personally contacted the DA's office to ask the same questions." He reported that the DA's office promised to get back to him in a couple of days. Among the questions Graziano said he had for the DA's office: "What evidence becomes whose possession?"
