NPPA Protests Ferguson Police Tactics, Disrespect For Constitutional Rights

NPPA’s legal counsel Mickey H. Osterreicher wrote, “In any free country the balance between providing police protection with integrity and over-zealous enforcement is delicate. It is one thing for officers to act when there is reasonable suspicion; it is quite another to abuse that discretion by chilling free speech and creating a climate of fear and distrust under the pretext of safety and security.”
