Former Second Ward supervisor Ed Cross then rose to "piggyback" what Mussmann had said, saying he too had opposed the creation of the shared services response team. Fourth Ward alderman John Rosenthal commented that federal programs encouraged local law enforcement agencies to buy militaristic gear.
Council president Tom DePietro advised Mussmann and Cross to bring their concerns to the Police Committee meeting. Kamal Johnson, who chairs the Police Committee, commented, "For the community to be heard, they have to show up." Johnson, who represents the First Ward, on the other side of town, said he too had been on State Street when the raid was being carried out.
The next Police Committee meeting is scheduled to take place on Monday, June 25, at 6 p.m. in City Hall.
