In response to the police “strong condemnation” of protesters for not allowing “food trucks to enter the CGO as “inhumane”, OCLP notes the condemnation follows the police refusal to allow protesters to assist in delivering food. This is highly unhelpful to establishing mutual trust.
Protesters have pointed to repeated deception by police, giving them the feeling the police are “crying wolf”. OCLP believes the people are discerning, and hope police management do not make things difficult for frontline police officers.
