A new group in Harrisonburg is taking on the task of watching the watchers. Today they held their kick off meeting at Broad St Mennonite Church.Members say that the group was formed in response to reports of police harassment particular in Weed and Seed Communities. There was also guest speaker from a Cop Watch chapter in DC. "It is a strategy not a solution but definitely if people assert their rights towards that power structure it will work," says Mark Bowen. The group expects to begin patrolling the streets in the very near future.
