    If one of the police at the Norfolk City Council Meeting followed Danbus and arrested him, then we are in a whole different ball game. I am not saying that was what happened. I am saying maybe we have photographic evidence that can help Danbus. We won't know until we see the pictures, identify the individuals and compare the names to the name on the summons. Post pictures of the police at the City Council Meeting in this thread.

    Duty rooster? Leave your dirty puns out of this, and tell him to get a duty ROSTER instead.

    I suspect that our cameras were all aimed forward. The LEOs were in the rear and to the sides.

    What we may very well want is any video footage taken by the 5 cameras recording the event. At least one of them was operated by a free lance professional (don't know his name) and he panned around the room + there was one in the corner behind council.

    Anybody have any ideas on how to get copies on these?

    Here is a collection from Va-Alerts.
    At least one of them #2, shows the audience and some LEOs :celebrate
    I don't have time to check them all now - have at it!

    One LEO may not be on any tapes as he was at the extreme left of the room - near Skidmark and I - but if called upon I could ID him in a heart beat - WM about 6' w/dk curly hair.

    Good they got the message about the park but this does not seem to, in and of itself, to refer to the building - wish that it did.

    Come on now, be nice. I didn't give my definition of a pro(fessional) vs an amatuer. The pro gets paid for his mistakes. Opps !

    No, but if someone could get me a picture (or at least the wording) of the little sign below the big brown sign, I might have a bomb shell for you.

    If you plan to stop by there, send me a PM first, I need to know if something ELSE is there, either.

    I'd do it, but I'm not making an 8-hour round trip to take one picture.

    Seriously, I'd forgotten how long it takes to drive there from Harrisonburg. I'm just glad someone was paying me to go down there. :celebrate

    OK, on video 1 at 8:20 when Philip is speaking and asks for everybody to stand up, there is a police officer just to the right of the clock that we can see momentarily. He could be a possible match to the police officer on the busting Danbus video, (possible, not probable.) Does anybody have the ability to enhance or improve the image?

    Three other uniformed police officers are in the meeting. None are close to the officer in the busting Danbus video.

    The officer to the right of the clock is definitely not the same one who arrested Dan.
    Paul and I are sitting directly beside the officer - he was not 3 ft. away from me the entire time. No match.

    Sorry - wish he were.

    Thanks Grapeshot. None of the other 3 uniformed officers is close to the one that was captured on video busting Danbus. My only other thought is that the city attorney originally said that the arresting officer was black. Did he lie, or was there also a black officer at Waterside? There was a black uniformed officer at the city council meeting. Long shot, but worth thinking about.

    The officer in the video at Dan's arrest appears very caucasian to me. He also appears to have Sgt's strips on his sleeve.

    It should be possible to find out what this (arresting) officers duty assignment was - was he truly "off duty" - was he properly working approved security if off duty? Working off duty requires specifically prior approved paper work, I believe.

    I think more importantly a FOIA request for any radio traffic to and from him during the time frame before and after the arrest might be very enlightening. I could never be made to believe that there was not any radio traffic about this.

    Maybe the 'plan' was to have a black officer arrest Dan. But he might have been stuck in traffic.

    Maybe the city attorney didn't know at the time of the interview that the boots on the ground had to go to plan 'b'.
