The Cleveland Police Union president says he’s received hundreds of complaint emails and calls from the rank and file members.

He did not ask for a formal count but it was enough to compel a call for Chief Michael McGrath, the chief the last seven years, to resign.

Hours after the 62-car police chase that ended with 137 bullets fired, killing Malissa Williams and Timothy Russell, Police Chief Mike McGrath was visibly dismayed.

“All night long, I was thinking, ‘why, why why did this happen,’ but we will find out why “ McGrath said last November.

It was a response, in the eyes of the rank and file, that seemed to prematurely point the finger at them.

“Take a step back. Wait till all the facts come in. Show a little support to the officers. Show a lot of support to the officers,” CPPA President Jeff Follmer said.

Attorney General Mike DeWine pointing the finger at the command and communication, not the officers, after a two-month investigation, was all the encouragement officers needed to say this.

“Our members no longer have the confidence in our chief’s ability to lead,” Follmer said.
