Norwalk police dispute racial profiling accusation

The blankociated Press | May 31, 2012

NORWALK, Conn.—Norwalk’s police union says known gang members were involved in fights at a city beach on Memorial Day, and are disputing accusations that an officer engaged in racial profiling.

Sgt. Thomas Roncinske, the president of union, tells the Norwalk Hour ( http://bit.ly/KfKZVq) that it was inappropriate for a local minister to turn the incident into a racial issue.

Police closed the beach for a half hour after an officer reported fights and a standoff between “Bloods and Crips.”

The Rev. Nellie Mann, the Norwalk Police chaplain, has asked for a public apology from police, saying most of the kids involved were not gang members, had marched in the city’s Memorial Day parade and were simply wearing the colors of the American flag.
