The ADL has confirmed that Richmond police department members have made this trip. The easiest way to search for these pertinent documents is to do a search for e-mails coming from, in particular is a popular one. I am appealing this decision on the grounds that the ADL has listed the Richmond police department has sent high ranking officers to this event.
