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.
