purely unselfconscious overseer-union not-see goon self-destructs on national teevee...,


sbnation |  Cleveland Browns wide receiver Andrew Hawkins took the field Sunday in a shirt reading "Justice for Tamir Rice and John Crawford III" in a gesture to bring light to officer-involved shootings in Ohio that have happened in the last three months. Now Cleveland Police Patrolman Union President Jeff Follmer is demanding an apology from the Browns for Hawkins' actions on Sunday. 

Follmer released a statement to NewsNet5 in Cleveland, directly asking for the organization to address the issue and referencing the police role in security at FirstEnergy Stadium.
"It's pretty pathetic when athletes think they know the law. They should stick to what they know best on the field. The Cleveland Police protect and serve the Browns stadium and the Browns organization owes us an apology."
The statement comes two weeks after police in St. Louis demanded an apology from the Rams after a group of receivers took part in a "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" gesture referencing the shooting of Michael Brown during their introductions against the Oakland Raiders in Week 13.
Police in St. Louis claimed the organization apologized to them following that incident, which the team quickly denied. The Browns did not apologize for the shirt worn by Hawkins and supported the receiver in a statement given to NewsChannel 5 in Cleveland:
We have great respect for the Cleveland Police Department and the work that they do to protect and serve our city. We also respect our players' rights to project their support and bring awareness to issues that are important to them if done so in a responsible manner.

BD would bet the frequency of young black kids in Cleveland, waving around a toy gun with the Orange_Toy_Indicator removed, and scare-ing the sht out of civilized folks, is way down from what it was before this shooting.....

Your head is stuck so far up your cancerous asshole that even Dick Cheney and his torturers couldn't help you get it out.

BigDonOne said...

BD stands by his totally-correct statement. All of these heavily-protested killings resulted from typical senseless irresponsible behavior found in FTO-deficient DNA-challenged iq75 environments.....

All of these heavily-protested killings resulted from typical senseless irresponsible behavior found in FTO-deficient DNA-challenged iq75 environments.....That describes these police just about perfectly.

lol, my man..., that's all you have to do - have a little patience and a little faith. Once you understand the nature of a thing, then you can depend on it to show itself.

What once was not-seen, is being slowly and surely brought out into the light of day for everyone to see. Not-see's can't survive in the light. Even those not descended to the reptilian level of my poster-child are left spouting regrettable and pathetic foolishness Your inability to look at an issue in the entire context and explore all of its nuances...,

BigDonOne said...

Viewed in the broadest entire context, y'all would be first to call-in the cops 911 if yours/family's security were seriously violated (assault, burglary, fraud, theft, vandalism, etc.). BD does not think you would ignore the violation simply because some low-life scumbag perp might get "unjustly" killled inadvertently by responding officers. Rather, you would want official action....

I've never contacted police, fire, emergency medical, or any other type of "first responder" for anything in my entire life. The only time I've ever sought out a public servant for assistance, was when I reached out to the office of Sen. Bob Dole of Kansas for very high-level regulatory oversight assistance.



As far as petty criminal monkey business goes, I'm a big personal believer in retribution, which as you might imagine, is something that has be handled personally.

Head stuck in ass? i doubt it. Not with that Orange Toy Indicator blocking the way.

@JK ...Here's a real stuck in iq75 ass item for you ---> http://www.komonews.com/news/local/Nordstrom-fires-worker-over-police-killings-Facebook-post-285996291.html

"Nordstrom department store has fired an African-American sales associate who made a statement about killing police on his Facebook page."

So, does your orange thing light up for the holidays?

ken said...

Such irony to take a phrase out of context from a discussion where you demand some sort of justice for uncomfortable methods of gathering intelligence to thwart things like the killing of 145 children just in the news today.

CNu said...

lol, this should be good.

1. What do internecine conflicts among Pakistani muslims have to do with us? (the army of the islamic republic of pakistan vs. the pakistani taliban)

2. Which part of Islamic Republic of Pakistan civil war applies to you?

3. We live in a "nation of laws" under the "rule of law". If U.S. citizens are flagrantly violating these laws, in fact, violating laws that Ronald Reagan himself championed http://scienceblogs.com/dispatches/2009/04/27/reagans-convention-against-tor/ that has direct bearing on us.

I don't trust any of the lying, thieving, warsocialist morons who perpetrated prison-rape culture from the highest levels of U.S. authority. I've shown that these same individuals were intimately involved in Iran-Contra, that they have a lengthy career history of acts and actions that have a direct bearing on my quality of life as a U.S. citizen under the rule of U.S. law.

So help us all out Ken, where exactly again is the irony?

ken said...

The irony was you taking my phrase from a totally different discussion out of context which talked about entire context. That was all. as for your other, the Taliban which protected the Alqaeda and takes on the same practices were captured in our prisons and are those we fight still today. We have in the past used intelligence to stop a terror attempts not just in the USA but around the world.

CNu said...

some sort of justice for uncomfortable methods of gathering intelligence...,

lol, you'd be easier to understand if you spit out that mouthful of lying marbles. Grown folks busy talking about complicated topics with limited time on our hands - and here you come muddying the discursive waters with out-and-out burra-shit!

I'm talking about TORTURE done in direct contradistinction to two specific sets of laws, the first enacted by none other than YT Jeebus hisself! http://youtu.be/jRNCpD3xhsY

Now, when you decide to rejoin the fact-based community and start speaking plain english about torture, law, and illegal political hijinks, instead of nuance, context, and a whole mouthful of lying marbles I've never heard you resort to previously, you're welcome to your spot at the grown folks discussion table.

using intelligence to stop terror attempts not just in the USA ta loco.....,lol.
