The woman who made headlines when she was arrested for videotaping Rochester police at a traffic stop is hoping to be the top cop in Monroe County.
The Green Party has endorsed Emily Good for Monroe County Sheriff. She announced her candidacy at a news conference Tuesday morning.
She says too many people are put behind bars for the wrong reasons and it’s a drain on the system. Something she hopes to change. “I'm running because the rate of incarceration in this country is too damn high. There are people in that building that need to be released and they need us to fix the broken policies."
We tried to speak with Good after the news conference but she says she won't be answering any questions from the media.
