STAND UP FOR JUSTICE, & NOT JUST US: Nassau County Legislators, Democrat, Independent, and Republican do not override Nassau County Executive Laura Curran's veto of the unconstitutional racist, classist, and sexist Police sue protesters Bill 187-21. Stand up for justice, and not the racist good old boys system of just us. Nassau County, New York, is multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, and multi-lingual, and protesters have constitutional first amendment rights that must be legally protected. This legal truth was affirmed and confirmed by New York State Attorney General Letitia James regarding the unconstitutionality of the racist, classist, and sexist Police sue protesters Bill 187-21.

FIRE RYDER FOR RACIST REMARKS: Nassau County County Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder must resign over his racist comments regarding Black and Brown children. If Ryder fails to resign. Nassau County Executive Laura Curran must fire Commissioner Ryder for his racist remarks. If County Executive Curran fails to fire Commissioner Ryder over his racist comments. Then no respectable Nassau County resident should vote for a County Executive who fails to remove a Police Commissioner who promotes racism. We need highly substantive Police reform in Nassau County, N.Y., NOW. The Police reform must start with the removal of Police Commissioner Ryder for rogue and racist Nassau County Police Officers to be held totally accountable for their terroristic injustices against Akbar Rogers.
