    Philadelphia City Council has announced a date for a public meeting to address the ongoing friction between residents and police officers.

    Dec. 7 has been chosen as the day for the two to come together and air their frustrations, resulting in what will hopefully be a mutual respect.

    The meeting comes on the heels of several citywide complaints of aggressive policing and a recent ACLU suit targeting stop-and-frisk.

    An Fraternal Order of Police union offical told CBS3 the FOP will participate in the hearing, provided it’s not a “witch hunt” against the police.
