Upset march in Cleveland

Springfield, OH

#23 Dec 4, 2012
I hear that Blacks in Cleveland are upset about this shooting and are calling for a federal investigation just like Trayvon Martin. We'll have to see if the Ghetto / Marxist / Media complex runs with this story since the two were confirmed criminals. There was a march were Blacks counted all the way to 137 for each shot fired at the two scum bag criminals.

This is the latest from Cleveland. The Blacks are upset and want Obama to get involved.

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson said today that his administration would support police officers involved in the shooting deaths of two people Thursday night, provided they were within what he called "the box" -- department rules regarding pursuit and use of deadly force.

"But if they go outside of the box, there will be consequences," Jackson said in a news conference early this afternoon.

Jackson also asked the community to have patience as the city works with investigators from the city of East Cleveland, the FBI and the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Thirteen Cleveland police officers fired 137 bullets Thursday at a car after a high speed chase, killing a Cleveland man and woman in East Cleveland.

Cleveland Police Chief Michael McGrath confirmed today that 12 of the 13 police officers involved in the shooting were white and one was Hispanic. The family of Marisa Williams, a black woman killed in the shooting, has suggested that the shooting was racially motivated.

East Cleveland police are leading the investigation into the chase and shooting and detectives are expected to begin interviewing the 13 officers today.

The attorney for Timothy Russell, the man killed in the shooting, has also scheduled a news conference for this afternoon in Cleveland.

What does the mayor mean by the box" -- department rules regarding pursuit and use of deadly force.

It was a 100 mph high speed chase where the suspects rammed police cars twice. Does this not automatically allow the use of deadly force?

I smell a lawsuit coming from the Black relatives looking to collect cash from the City of Cleveland.

God help us, our country has gone insane.

Despite the obligatory and laughable claims of their relatives, these two scum bags got exactly what they deserved, and the city of Cleveland is just a little bit safer today as a result.
Easy sometimes to go back and reconstruct a justification. Clearly neither of these persons looks angelic and clearly they were fleeing the police.

But there are some critical questions that the police must answer as well, such as what they knew or believed about these two and on what basis.

Once you overlook an unnecessary use of force because the victims look like they deserved it based on a past history, it becomes very easy to justify such uses of force in all encounters.
