Police Assault Detroit City Clerk Candidate; Libertarian Party of Michigan Chair Seeks Disciplinary Action for Officers
(Lansing, MI) — As Chair of the Libertarian Party of Michigan and a concerned citizen, I am shocked and angered by the treatment of the candidate for Detroit City Clerk, Scott Boman.
He was acting completely within his rights as a taxpayer, citizen and political candidate. He was not trespassing, as he was outside the legal boundary of a polling station.
I have many questions, but primarily: was it the fact he was taking photographs? Or was it the object of his photographs that was cause for concern?
The conduct of the Wayne County Community College District Security Police Authority was abusive, unprofessional and not within the high standards the department sets for itself.
The Libertarian Party is dedicated to preserving the civil liberties of all citizens, and exposing government waste, fraud and abuse when we see it.
We will not be intimidated by those who choose to misuse their authority. We will be filing a formal complaint, and expect the people involved in the abusive treatment of Mr. Boman to face disciplinary action.
Chair, Libertarian Party of Michigan
