Connections: Members of Rochester City Council discuss protests following Daniel Prude's death

Rochester City Council sent a letter to the mayor Thursday asking that protesters be allowed to peacefully demonstrate following the death of Daniel Prude. Thursday night, Rochester police fired many rounds of pepper balls, and a New York Times reporter described RPD as behaving more aggressively than police in other cities where protests have taken place.

We talk to members of Council about their oversight powers and what they expect to happen next. Our guests:
