Cleveland Dem Fudge: Acquittal in police shooting case a ‘stunning setback’

Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) is criticizing a judge’s decision to acquit a Cleveland police officer in a 2012 police shooting case involving an unarmed black couple, calling officers’ actions “extreme, excessive, and unnecessary.”

“The decision of Judge John P. O’Donnell to acquit Officer Michael Brelo is a stunning setback on the road to justice for Timothy Russell, Malissa Williams and the people of Cleveland,” Fudge said in a statement. “The verdict is another chilling reminder of a broken relationship between the Cleveland Police Department and the community it serves. Today we have been told – yet again – our lives have no value.”

Officer Michael Brelo, 31, was found not guilty of voluntary manslaughter and other lesser charges on Saturday in the deaths of Russell and Williams. Brelo was among the officers who fired at Russell and Williams’ car during a chase and later climbed onto the hood of the car and fired at its occupants after the chase ended.

The Department of Justice has announced that it will review the testimony and evidence from Brelo’s trial to determine “what, if any, additional steps are available.”

The Brelo verdict sparked protests that stretched into Saturday night. Several arrests were reported by local media outlets.

That is because white people are civil human beings and these black people are uncivilized and act as savages!!!!!!~!

The spot light on the cops  but why not the people doing wrong.??

The thing is, i want justice for all, yet the left created all these millions of hateful black criminals to use against society/against us, that i hope for more officers to shot these bastards without warning if they're committing criminal acts and endangering others. Get rid of them. That is a cold statement, I know, yet there is no hope for them so why bother putting up with them and supporting them for the next 30-50 years? Take them out of our misery! It's as simple as that. Shot first let the left media ask questions later or go home officers if you're prevented/stopped from doing your job.

1 less parasitic criminal dirt bag liberal='s several freed tax payers.

We do have justice for all. This is the only country where blacks are treated equally.

Society cannot help that more blacks commit crimes than whites, that is their choice. Regardless how poor we were, we were always clean, and stayed within the law! Blaming one's background, education, or the lack of it, is nothing but passing the blame. We are all responsible for ourselves, and we pay the price for the life we choose! The blacks need to get back to tight families, marry, and work...it will change everything, especially if the go back to church and get an education.

SICK: Leprosy On The Rise In Los Angeles 

Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.

California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.

Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.

Medscape reported:

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).

Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.

Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.

Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
