Cleveland has been under the gun for police pursuits. The latest being one where a 13 yo girl, walking to a library was killed when the vehicle being pursued struck and killed the young lady.
The usual uproar from “concerned citizens” was to end all pursuits…”it’s the cops fault.”
The chief bristled at the demand. Saying the culprit(s) were the 2 jr. gangsters who committed a violent felony.
Not so fast said Cleveland Chief Calvin Williams. The car being chased was “jacked” by 2 15 yo armed punks. Officers on patrol saw the car and, of course, the driver refused to pull over. The end result being the death on an innocent person.
“Do we want to give criminals free rein to do anything they want? We will review our pursuit policy and regulate chases. We must not let these criminals run wild without consequences.”
Right you are Chief Williams.
STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP, WEAR YOUR VEST AND TURN ON YOUR CAMERA!
