STEVE LOOMIS, PRESIDENT OF CLEVELAND POLICE PATROLMEN’S ASSOCIATION: The president of the Untied States validated a false narrative and the nonsense that Black Lives Matter and the Media are pressing out there to the public — He validated with his very divisive statements And now we see an escalation.
This has got to end.
We need some leadership in this country to come forward and put an end to this.
I don’t care if it’s clergy or who it is but somebody has to step up and put an end to this. It’s false narrative and people politicizing the false narrative that we have a President of the United States and the governor of Minnesota making a statement less than one day after the police involved shootings.
Those police involved shootings are what absolutely has triggered in rash of senseless murders of law enforcement officers across the country. It is reprehensible.
The president has blood on his hands and it will not be able to come washed off…
How the hell did we ever become the bad guys in this country? I can not imagine how we got here. It is the irresponsible reporting of the media and irresponsible statements from people who are credible – like the president, like celebrities.July 18, 2016 at 10:54 am #21650VitalogyParticipant
Talk about inciting violence!
Loomis is the guy with blood on his hands, not Obama. All one needs to do is look at the last 2 years of behavior by the Cleveland police.
And, this type of rhetoric is even more dangerous considering Cleveland is hosing the RNC this week.
How did cops become the bad guys? Guys like Loomis is how.July 18, 2016 at 12:10 pm #21655AmusParticipant
Me thinks Mr. Loomis is enjoying his 15 minutes of fame.
This guy is a piece of “work” for lack of a more apt description.
Anyone who has ever wondered whether ‘tone deafness’ is a real thing need look no further than the police union’s leadership. Reflecting in a few breaths all that is wrong with Cleveland’s police division, Steve Loomis managed to (1) blame the victim, (2) equate a mother losing her 12-year-old child with officers facing public scrutiny for killing that child, and (3) demand money from the victim’s family. Loomis’s comments suggest that his union still doesn’t comprehend that Cleveland’s police division needs a complete cultural transformation: from not hiring incompetents, to better training, to vastly greater accountability. If Loomis’s attitude truly reflects rank-and-file officers’ attitudes, then we Clevelanders are all still in deep trouble.
