CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
The Cleveland branch of NAACP wants police union president Steve Loomis to step down from the Cleveland Community Police Commission.
The recently-formed commission is made up up of ten civilian representatives and one representative each from the Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association, the Fraternal Order of Police and the Black Shield.
The letter claims Loomis has a “conflict of interest” at best and cites comments the police union president made during a news conference after officers were disciplined for a deadly chase.
“However, your comments of late regarding the conduct of officers involved in the out of control, unauthorized, 2012 police chase which resulted in the deaths of an unarmed couple, are both reprehensible and at odds with your oath as a member of the Cleveland Community Police Commission.”
