In the video below you can watch these Rochester Police officers pepper spray a 9 year old girl as she begs for her father. The girl was in the back of a patrol car with her hands cuffed behind her back. Pepper spraying an adult, let alone a child, while they are handcuffed in the back of a patrol car is excessive force. The City of Rochester was quick to suspend these officers pending the outcome of an investigation, but they did not release their names. We want to know who they are. We know that if enough people see their faces that eventually someone will recognize them. If you live in the Rochester area take a good look at the facial screenshot collage on this page. If you know who any of these officers are, there is a comment section on this page below this article, please use it to post everything you know about these people.

The Rochester Police Department does not appear to be justifying this at all. Interim Police Chief Cynthia Herriott-Sullivan said, "I'm not going to stand here and tell you that for a 9-year-old to be pepper-sprayed is OK. It's not," and Rochester Executive Deputy Chief Andre Anderson said, "I'm not making any excuses for what transpired," If the RPD has already taken the position that pepper spraying a defenseless child is wrong then why are they protecting these child abusers from public scrutiny? Why not release their names just like they would any regular citizen that gets caught on camera abusing a child? A regular citizen would be in jail with their mugshot all over the news if caught on camera doing what these officers did.

Everyone that has seen the video, including New York Attorney General Letitia James whose office is looking at this case, agree that nothing about it is ok. Again, if you know the names of the suspended Rochester Police officers please post them in comments section below.

UPDATE: Their names are Hannah Schneeberger, Alexander Lombard, Adam Bradstreet, Chad Brady, Ethan Paszko, Dakota Vanbrederode, and John Soures, but we still don't know every name.

The RPD released the names of Hannah Schneeberger, Alexander Lombard, Adam Bradstreet, and Chad Brady to the mainstream media today. We already named the first three, but the press was not interested because they don't print names of cops unless the police release their names.

We agree that Lombard is the sprayer https://copblaster.com/blast/34418/rochester-officer-alexander-lombard-idd-pepper-spraying-little-girl

1312 - Nice freeze frame of Lombard's nametag, I couldn't make it out at first until I paused the video at the exact same time and saw what you saw. Alexander Lombard is the only current RPD officer named Lombard.

I mistook him for John Soures because Soures can be seen wearing an identical RPD beanie later on and he too has facial hair as well as other striking similarities to Lombard. I will have to update Soures' profile to make sure he is no longer blamed for Lombard's conduct at that point of the incident.

Here some frames with his face or tag:


The most important one is AL-6 since it shows most of his name-tag. According to OpenOversight.com no other cop has a name even close to that.

AL-6 is actually a frame of Adam Bradstreet's body came mid-fall. A careful frame-by-frame analysis revealed that great shot of his name-tag

Thanks for the great work you have been doing here. I think I got one more: https://openoversight.com/officer/33092 - Alexander Lombard

He is the second cop whose body cam footage has been released and I am pretty sure it was him who deployed the pepper-spray! Why? Watching https://youtu.be/ku41-899CHo?t=346 (should start at around 5:46). At 5:50 we hear what is most likely the cop attached to the camera (nobody else stands anywhere near that camera) say "Just spray her, just spray her at this point", then at 5:58 (after he moves into the car, with spray in hand) the same voice says "here" and a spray sound is audible (faintly). Finally at 6:02 (after getting out of the car) same voice says "I got her, I got her".

Last night we identified the woman in the video. You can learn more about her at https://copblaster.com/blast/34415/hannah-schneeberger-idd-as-rochester-officer-pepper-spraying-child

Good news, we have identified the officer in the bottom of the photo as Adam Bradstreet. More on him later.

We also identified officer John Soures, learn about him here https://copblaster.com/blast/34414/rochester-police-officer-john-soures-idd-at-pepper-spraying-of-child

The total number of officers suspended is three but they still will not release any names.
