Cleveland Police Union Doesn't Think Shooting of Unarmed Residents Reflects Poorly on Department

The head of the police union disagrees with the police chief.


 The head of the Cleveland police union said today that he is unnerved that city Police Chief Michael McGrath said that Thursday's fatal shooting of two unarmed people reflects poorly on the department.

"I don't understand where the bad guys aren't still bad, and now it's the police officers," Jeffery Follmer, president of the Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association, said during a news conference at the CPPA hall Saturday afternoon.
