CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
The Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association calls the firings of six Cleveland officers “politically motivated.”
Six Cleveland police officers were fired Tuesday. The firings come as a result of the administrative discipline hearings for the 13 Cleveland police officers involved in the deadly November 2012 police chase and shooting.
The officers fired were Officer Michael Brelo, Officer Wilfredo Diaz, Det. Christopher Ereg, Officer Michael Farley, Det. Erin O’Donnell and Officer Brian Sabolik.
The police union president Steve Loomis says the union will fight the punishment from beginning to end.
“It was a tragic situation, but we responded to the felonies being committed,” says Loomis.
