Cleveland Removes Proverbial Foot from Collective Mouth

Mayor Frank Jackson

Mayor Frank Jackson this morning, apologized for blaming Tamir Rice for his own murder. He began by apologizing¬† for the insensitivity of the language used. I think he should be apologizing to the Rice family for killing their 12 year old son. The city of Cleveland, according to the Justice department, has been engaging in a pattern of brutality and excessive force for at least 10 years. If the DOJ says 10 years, it’s probably more like since it’s inception.

I have been living here in Cleveland for 15 years, and I can tell you that it’s been that way since I got here. If the Mayor and the city were truly sorry, they would stop trying to cover up and excuse every single act of police abuse they find out about. Every time they shoot someone, they claim the were justified. A pattern we see emerging from every department with a fatal shooting under it’s belt. Las Vegas PD has NEVER had an unjustified shooting. Think about that. In the history of the Las Vegas police department, which dates back to the 1800s. So in 200 years, the Las Vegas police never made a mistake when killing someone? It is impossible. The law of averages would have to catch up to them at some point, right?

Well Frank good luck with the backpedaling. I know it hurts your pride! Just like Chief Williams. The chief stated on 60 minutes that he is a fighter and he doesn’t give up on things once he starts them! Like when his policies aren’t working, he just keeps going with them cause he’s no quitter! Wake up Cleveland!!
