Perfect example as to Rockford Park District trying to hide things from the public. ~ http://rockfordscanner.com/2017/08/pedestrian-hit-by-a-vehicle-officer-asks-rockford-scanner-to-stop-filming-the-scene/
Update: RS fan Michelle D. Strand
“Three subjects were arrested for agg battery and felony mob action”
RPD said at 11:42 this was a “service to another agency” Which means that Rockford Park District has control over the scene and RPD was assisting. Rockford Park District never releases any press releases or any information on anything, especially since the encryption. So it appears there will no longer be any updates on this. If there is, we will post them here.
In the past when there were bodies found, shootings, robberies, etc… Rockford Park District has control over the scenes and RPD assists. And they label it the same thing.
Around 12:15 pm today several people contacted us and said there is a large police scene down at Sinnissippi Park. There are several officers that have the Auburn st bridge bike path, blocked off on both sides of the bridge.
RPD and the park district are encrypted and have yet to release any information.
We will post updates here, if they become available
Note: This is the Sinnissippi Bike Path. We do NOT yet know what happened, due to the lack of transparency and the encryption. And we can only go by what RS fans have told us. So nothing is yet confirmed. We want to thank everyone who sent us photos, information on this event. Keep up the good work with SEE IT, SNAP IT, SEND IT. The more you send us, the more we can keep you informed!
