I really do hate to intrude, but yesterday I hopped onto KeeganNYC’s account to see what might be goin’ on in Bill Bratton Land, and found a staggering number of hideous stories; the first seven are his, and I’m not bringin’ all of them by any means.
Thank you, Shaun King for writing this one up, and adding more fuel to the fire.

‘Prosecutor challenges legal analysis of Brelo verdict’
“Legal experts tell WKYC Channel 3 that, even if granted the decision of Judge John O’Donnell is final and can not be overturned, Brelo, 31, can not be retried.
Those experts add, the goal of the 31-page appeal is to challenge the legal rational the judge used for part of the decision and to assure he does not use the same rational in future cases.”

A reprise from 2014 (cleveland.com)
“CLEVELAND, Ohio — Nine non-African American Cleveland police officers accused the police department of racial discrimination in the aftermath of the deadly Nov. 29, 2012 chase in a federal lawsuit filed late Friday.
The officers – eight white officers and one Hispanic – claim the department has a history of treating non-black officers who shoot black residents “more harshly” than black officers involved in shootings, according to the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court Northern District of Ohio Friday.
The suit was filed on the eve of the two-year anniversary of the deadly chase, when 13 officers fired 137 shots at a Chevrolet Malibu driven by Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams.” Poor, poor, po-pos.
Yesterday’s Phoenix Mosque Protests; the opposition rally was far larger; good on them. Folks in the Twittersphere are wondering if the National Guard was on standby for a hate rally posing as ‘Freedom of Speech’.
Tell it, bro.
