CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
In a letter posted on the city of Cleveland’s Facebook page Wednesday, Mayor Frank Jackson says the city has planned and is prepared for any reactions after the verdict of the CPD Officer Michael Brelo is read.
Brelo is charged with voluntary manslaughter in the deaths of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams after the deadly police chase and shooting on Nov. 29, 2012. Both were unarmed when they were killed. His trial is expected to wrap up by the end of the week.
LETTER FROM MAYOR FRANK JACKSON:
Dear Community Leader:
In the wake of the tragic events that unfolded in Baltimore, and bearing in mind the series of police-related matters and legal proceedings currently in process here in Cleveland, I am writing to let you know that the City of Cleveland has been planning and is prepared to address upcoming developments.
As I am sure you are aware, it is likely that the trial of Officer Michael Brelo will conclude within the next few days. Other high-profile cases are still pending, as well as continued negotiations with the Department of Justice.
