• Hot Summer GOP Convention Coming Up After Appalling DOJ Report on Cleveland PD

    So summer is going to be lit in Cleveland.

    This July the GOP (Gasping Old Party) is going to hold its nominating convention in Cleveland, Ohio. Given the way things are headed, this may turn out to be a contested convention, where everyone but Donald Trump tries to make sure Donald Trump is not the Republican nominee. Trump, in a classy move, has suggested if he is not anointed there will be riots.

    And who will be in charge of security for all that rock and roll? The Cleveland Police Department.

    Yeah, that Cleveland Police Department.

    After the Clevo Devo PD gunned down child Tamir Rice in cold blood, the Department of Justice (DOJ) got out of its wheelchair and investigated the thuggery that passes for law enforcement in northern Ohio. As you read through some of their findings below, just allow yourself to imagine how that sh*t will work out with the sh*t Trump is talking about. Short answer: it’ll be a real poop storm.

    Here goes:

    — The DOJ found Cleveland police officers shooting at people who presented neither serious nor imminent threats. In a 2013 incident, a sergeant fired at a victim fleeing a home where he was being held against his will by armed suspects.

    — The report found officers striking suspects even after they had been handcuffed.

    — And using their tasers inappropriately.

    — Officers deployed unreasonable force against people with mental illness (careful Trump supporters, that means you)

    — Officers deployed unreasonable force against people needing medical care.

    Hah, hah. These stories don’t even touch on the DOJ’s other grave conclusion: the Cleveland Police Department and prosecutor’s office failed do much about such misconduct after it occurred.

    A long, hot summer ahead for people who just want to watch things burn.

      Bauer- I’d like to believe in a comeuppance for Shrillary but
      it seems BOTH parties have agreed in private she will be the next POTUS. Things like that happen regularly. The ruling elite loves to put on a show of “progress” to hoodwink the masses. Halfrican (the only notable term a sleaze like Limbaugh ever uttered) and now a woman. Next? A hermaphrodite? Why not? Men and women could agree for once.

      “BOTH parties?” There can be only one…

      See my note on the article Peter wrote about the pledge of allegiance:

      “I pledge allegiance to the WAR PARTY for which it stands. In control since 1963.
