i’d love to know how chief brackney’s repeated assurances that they couldn’t and wouldn’t be searching everyone who went downtown turned into checkpoints with mandatory bag searches.
charlottesville police chief brackney at a community engagement forum on july 26th:

and chief brackney again at another community engagement event just days before this past weekend, on august 8:

what we saw this weekend, though, was a massive restricted area downtown, with only two entry points. these manned checkpoints REQUIRED a "consensual" search of any bag. refusal to be searched meant you could not enter downtown charlottesville's public pedestrian mall.
perhaps i'll also get a chance to express my profound disappointment in @CvilleCityHall for choosing to ignore good sense & pleas from the public NOT to participate in the doxxing of folks arrested over the weekend.
they not only put out their usual press release, they TWEETED THE MUGSHOTS. i wrote to city communications director brian wheeler on thursday and BEGGED HIM not to do this. he chose to respond to other questions i asked in that message, but did not acknowledge that request.
