One of the Rochester Police officers involved in the pepper spraying of a 9 year old girl last week has been identified as Adam Bradstreet. We were able to identify him because in the video below at about 5:30 a fellow officer asked "Bradstreet what's her name?" We then searched the police officer database at Open Oversight for RPD officers with the last name Bradstreet and found a single entry for an Adam K. Bradstreet (badge number IBM#2622). Then we verified that he is in fact a current RPD officer by looking him up on GovSalaries where we learned that last year he made $86,716 as a patrol officer for the city of Rochester (https://govsalaries.com/bradstreet-adam-90970535). We also ran his name through the paid background check service that we usually use and found one public record for a 32 year old male named Adam Kenneth Bradstreet with an address in the nearby city of Webster, New York.
The above image of Bradstreet includes a small social media profile picture that we recovered from Google's cache. It showed up in a Google images search with a link to a PeekYou page about people named Adam Bradstreet, but the live page does not contain the image. We did however see another picture of a cop linking to an Instagram profile (https://www.instagram.com/a._savage_369/) which has since been deleted. It is common practice for officers to remove their social media pages after high profile incidents such as this one. We believe that the image came from that profile. We know that the picture is of Bradsteet because the last half of his last name is visible on his nametag, he is obviously wearing a RPD uniform, and he looks strikingly similar to one of the officers in the video below.
In the video below you can see that Bradstreet played a somewhat less serious role in the assault. He appears to be standing next to officer Hannah Schneeberger (https://copblaster.com/blast/34415/hannah-schneeberger-idd-as-rochester-officer-pepper-spraying-child) most of the time. He does not appear to pepper spray or even touch the victim at all, but we still believe that he shares some of the blame for the pepper spraying because he was standing right next to Schneeberger when she threatened the child at about 4:40 by saying "this is your last chance or pepper spray is going in your eyeballs." We fault Officer Bradstreet for failing to intervene when Schneeberger threatened the girl while standing right next to him. Police officers have a lawful duty to intervene when they witness a fellow officer use excessive force or otherwise behave inappropriately. Even when the girl was pepper sprayed he did nothing. He had the opportunity to stop Schneeberger when she threatened the child. A competent officer would have pulled her aside or stepped in front of her and told her that it is not ok to threaten children.
UPDATE: The photo of Bradstreet has been changed due to new body camera footage released in which someone can be heard calling Bradstreet over the radio. That body cam had an ID number ending in AB2622 so it turns out the person that posted comments saying we had the wrong image for Bradstreet was right. Everything else was correct and the today the mainstream media verified that by printing Bradstreet's name after the RPD released it.
