    71 Arrested In Cleveland Protests In Cop's Acquittal In Deaths Of Unarmed Black Motorists

    AP | By Mark Gillispie | Posted: 05/24/2015 12:28 pm EDT
    Excerpts:

    CLEVELAND (AP)-"The streets returned to calm Sunday after police arrested dozens of demonstrators overnight when protests grew increasingly aggressive in the wake of a patrolman's acquittal in the deaths of two unarmed black suspects.
    In total, 71 people were arrested, including several who turned their anger toward bystanders in downtown Cleveland, Police Chief Calvin Williams said."

    "Someone picked up a restaurant sign and hit a patron in the head, and other protesters used pepper spray on passers-by and restaurant patrons sitting at outdoor cafes. But Mayor Frank Jackson thanked the vast majority of protesters who remained peaceful and respectful as they voiced their frustration with Saturday's verdict."

    ......

    "Officer Michael Brelo, 31, faces administrative charges while remaining suspended without pay after he was found not guilty on two counts of voluntary manslaughter, but he no longer faces the prospect of prison. The anxious city now awaits a decision on criminal charges against a white officer in the fatal shooting of a black 12-year-old boy with a pellet gun."

    "Brelo and 12 other officers fired 137 shots at a car with Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams inside it on Nov. 29, 2012. The shooting occurred at the end of a 22-mile chase involving more than 100 Cleveland police officers and 60 cruisers after Russell's Chevy Malibu backfired while speeding past police headquarters. During the chase, an officer reported that he thought he'd seen Williams with a gun. At the end, police mistook police gunfire for shots from Russell's car."

    .......

    IMO: Now that Brelo no longer faces any time in prison for his part in the long chase of two unarmed black citizens, in an old beat-up Chevy Malibu, in which the final grand finale included Brelo standing on the hood of that Chevy pumping 15 shots into the interior of the car. It shows beyond a doubt that justice still cannot be accomplished even with 100 police chasing 2 unarmed black citizens, the chase quickly becomes a "hunt" with a predictable outcome for the 2 unarmed blacks in the beat-up Chevy.

    We have quickly become a bastard generation of war-polluted killers with no sense of personal justice, conscience, or retribution for the things we do. When a policeman makes an arrest, everything becomes classified as to the potential worth of the person's life, and what happens next is motivated by that instant decision we make, as we reach for our guns to kill.

    Many of us are walking through life without knowing a time when our country was at peace, so many of us work at making ourselves warlike, able to kill without having to pay any potential consequences. The best way to achieve this emotional release is to join the police corp and work the 'ghetto' area where you can make instant decisions, a "kill," without suffering any consequences.

    America has become a warring nation where quality of life has been drowned out by the gunshots of policemen out on another "hunt." What we see today is nothing but a fading replica of what life in a Democracy under a Constitution is supposed to be. It is the 'haves' against the 'have-nots'....when will this insanity stop, or are we destined to go tumbling down the road to the bottom?

    ......

    Are you saying that the beat up Chevy was going 120 mph thru a town that was the circumference of 22 miles in length, or that the chase went thru different jurisdictions collecting over 100 police cars and 60 cruisers?

    I live in the Cleveland area and what I find very amusing from the liberal media is not one story that I have read or heard has addressed the issue of WHY they were trying to outrun the cops, or that the driver had a lengthy rap sheet.

    Again, doesn't mean they deserved to die, but wonder what no good they were up to and/or attempting to hide? An innocent person doesn't lead the police on a high speed chase for that long if he or she is innocent.

    Maybe there have been references to this in the reporting, but it can't be much when our airwaves and papers have been filled with this story and I havn't seen that angle reported on at all.

    cars can and are, considered deadly weapons.


    it's a dishonest tactic to suggest that because they didn't have a gun, that they weren't a threat.

    We've seen this narrative play out time and time again.

    Zim killed Trayvon, who was unarmed. Nevermind, Trayvon was actively bouncing Zims head off the concrete when he was shot
    Michael Brown was unarmed when the officer shot him.... Nevermind that he was trying to take the cops gun when he was shot
    now this. Forgive me if I don't just jump right on board that they weren't actively trying to run police over when they shot this thug


    I'm unfamiliar with the case, but had these future astronauts that the police gunned down, using that beat up malibu as a weapon by driving it at officers?

    No mother should fear for the life of her son every time he robs a store.

    I'm wondering if the DOJ has called for the release of those arrested into their custody yet.
    So they can be paid and shipped on the the next riot.

    LOL - these two thugs run through a town like maniacs - endangering the lives of countless innocents, and get killed for it - and the cops are being blamed ?

    Have the far left progressives and black thug community have no shame ?

    Honestly, two less rats in our fair country is a good thing. It's not like these two thugs were going to end up changing their lives and curing cancer. Why should society care when bad people die ?

    When I find out gangbangers and violent criminals are killed, here is my reaction -

    Now I get it. This whole news blitz about killer cops and all of the injustice is a ruse. It's a bone that has been thrown to the media to keep them amused. There are a whole bunch of things going on that we the people would object to if we were offered a clue. Something about the NSA.... Something else about immigration and the whole drug thing.... These are all tufts of the wool that is being pulled over our eyes while real events continue to unfold.

    Well odds are certainly high that these two had drugs in the vehicle, and might have been peddling. Why else were they attempting to evade the police as they were?

    But fear not.....Uncle Al is coming to town this week to organize a march to the Justice Center. With the king of the race baiters in town, I'm sure the black community will get riled up into a frenzy.

    That would be an impossible conclusion if the two unarmed blacks in the Chevy Malibu were driving away from the police.

    Well...golly gee.....I guess the cops would be stupid for maybe getting cars ahead of the chase in an attempt to block them. I'm sure that when these two geniuses saw police cars blocking the road ahead of them, they just stopped and didn't try to bull through the road block.

    Obviously you've never seen a police chase before. This is quote from one of your employer's articles " The police union says the shootings were justified because Russell tried to ram an officer. Some officers also thought the two were armed." LINK

    It all has to do with the quality of life that you can achieve depending solely on the color of your skin.

    From what I can tell from the stories so far, all they were guilty of is allowing their car to backfire in front of police HQ (darn cars) and panicking.

    Wrong! It all has to do with the quality of life young blacks have in relation to the training, racism, and basic morality of the police who arrives on the scene.

    Is that what Huffington Posts tells you? While I'm sure that some cops are racists, I doubt the numbers are as high as some people would like society to believe. Why is it that almost all of these incidences of 'police brutality' usually take place AFTER the suspect breaks the law or resists arrest?
