Here’s What Steve Lysenko Had To Say About The Police:
“Good evening, folks. It’s Steve Lysenko, president of the local chapter of the national association for multicultural education. In an act of protest this evening, we marched west on Court Street. And we didn’t do anything but chant and sing, all the way—halfway across the bridge. At which point we met the Rochester Police Department. And guess what happened? Our peace keepers ended up shooting pepper spray at us for singing and chanting and telling them what a sh*tty-*ss job they were doing. They can f*** right off, America. F*** the police! F*** Rochester Police Department! Thank you.”
Lysenko’s Employer, Spencerport Public Schools, Issued Statements Regarding The Incident:

As we have stated consistently and clearly, Spencerport Central School District stands in solidarity in support of racial equality and systemic change.
Judging by the wording below, namely that the school will be settling any disciplinary decisions in a “confidential” manner, the school district has no intention of firing the assistant principal:
“As we have stated consistently and clearly, Spencerport Central School District stands in solidarity in support of racial equality and systemic change. We remain committed to this change, and want all of our families to know we further stand in solidarity with peaceful protesters. However, when a District employee uses language in public or on social media that does not align with our Code of Conduct or demonstrate appropriate role modeling for students, that is something that we will not condone. These statements by our administrator have caused disruption within our school community. We apologize to our students, parents and community that you had to hear this language from one of our employees. This will be addressed as a confidential, personnel matter.”
