Is it always a racial problem when a black man gets arrested for domestic violence? The victim was also black. Is it proper to assault women?
Look at the video there is no need for words.


To Daily Voice - THIS IS HORRIBLE REPORTING as your facts are not correct! Further, I think this is time to demand a more diverse reporting staff as you do not represent New Rochelle!
