    Sad.

    Officers just say "I thought I saw a gun" and "I feared for my life" and get away with murder.

    FUQ

    But when the smoky haze -- caused by rapid fire of nearly 140 bullets in less than 30 seconds -- dissipated, it soon became clear that more than a dozen officers had been firing at one another across a middle school parking lot in East Cleveland.

    Odds are that will not be happening in this case.

    It remains to be seen how far and how deep the disciplining goes. From the AG's report it looks like shift supervisors are going to be included.

    Although perhaps not a perfect example of a fuster-cluck, this will do. The saying is "Hours of boredom interspersed with seconds of excitement." Nothing in there about minutes of carnival rides for everybody.

    The real issue.

    Follmer (The head union-thug) also criticized the city's administration and its investigation into the Nov. 29 incident, saying he was "disappointed by the premature judgment of the panel to appease the public without knowing the facts." Follmer said officers involved in the incident have been told they will be suspended, demoted or will lose their jobs.


    "We have officers right now second-guessing because they don't believe they're being supported by this administration," he said.

    Just days after the shooting, Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association President Jeffery Follmer criticized McGrath for commenting on the situation and defended the actions of the officers involved.


    "I don't understand where the bad guys aren't still bad, and now it's the police officers," Follmer said during a news conference on Dec. 1.


    "The officers involved are experienced and professional police officers," Follmer said. "For anyone who was not there to judge them without knowing all the facts, or to blame anyone else but the two occupants of that car for their own death, is ignorant and self serving.

    "Our officers did a great job."
    The police officers BECOME "the bad guys" when they stop following the law and department regulations. Period.

    Careful that might be considered a Rule #6 violation.... We can't make truthful statements about government officials if that statement puts them in a negative light.
    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.
