Cleveland Police Union Bullies Browns & Crowell into Apology
See black people? You don’t have to march and protest with cardboard signs to get people to do what you want. When you hold true power you simply tell them “do xy or z is going to happen.”
That is exactly what the Cleveland Police union did to Browns running back Isiah Crowell.
They’re basically bullying the Cleveland Browns for an apology and money from Crowell:
Stephen Loomis, the president of Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association, calls Crowell’s gesture a “store-bought apology.” In comments to TMZ, Loomis also described Crowell’s post as being as “offensive as putting a picture of historical African-American men being hung from a tree in the 60s.”
Loomis has a specific suggestion for what Crowell needs to do next.
“He needs to go to Dallas, help the families who lost their loved ones last week, write them a check, look them in the eyes and give a heartfelt apology,” Loomis told TMZ. If Crowell doesn’t, there will be consequences.
“I will pull Cleveland officers, sheriffs, state troopers out of First Energy Stadium this season if he doesn’t make it right,” Loomis said. “You’re a grown-ass man, and you claim you were too emotional to know it was wrong? Think we’ll accept your apology? Kiss my ass.”
Crowell has since coughed up the money. No words on if he’s going to Dallas.
I thought we were all against bullying?
I thought extortion was illegal?
I see the rules only apply unless… never mind, nothing to see here.
