WBFO Brief July 15, 2021
On the WBFO Brief today, we hear several stories about policing in Buffalo. You’ll hear about a community push-back against gun violence, learn that the Buffalo Police are wearing some extra-large nametags with their badge numbers now, and you’ll hear concerns that national incidents of white supremacists infiltrating into police forces nationwide could be an issue in Buffalo.
Also today, Albany correspondent Karen DeWitt reports on a meeting with NYC Mayoral candidate Eric Adams talking about gun violence; Ontario correspondent Dan Karpenchuk looks at the province’s debate over use of an electronic “vaccine passport”; and hear, quite literally, about how a Rochester church is dealing with loitering.
PS - You’ll want to hear the podcast tomorrow, for a special Theater Talk announcement from Peter Hall and Anthony Chase.
