“Again, you had about, when I talked to the incident commander, 400-500 people out here,” said IMPD Officer William Young. “It’s just blatant disrespect… blatant disrespect. It’s certainly disturbing. The message is we are going to hold you accountable and responsible if you pick up a firearm and try to hurt someone. It’s all about conflict resolution. We continuously visit that word, conflict resolution and again, it’s certainly disturbing.”
