Mayor Rescinds $2,500 Police Bill Issued to Teen Over Black Lives Matter Protest

by

The mayor of Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey issued an 18 year old a bill for $2,500 for a Black Lives Matter protest held in July. The young lady secured the necessary paperwork for the protest. It was attended by about 30 people and held next to a police station. She was later issued a bill from the mayor citing overtime for the officers used for the protest. After a national outcry, the bill has been rescinded but she never received an apology from the mayor. She said,┬áhe sort of imposed a police presence on the protest. He said, ‘now that you’ve alerted me that this is going on, I’m going to have to send the police to you.’ So it wasn’t something that I specifically requested. Should the mayor publicly apologize?
