    Why they Kneel

    Never Forget.

    Ohio police officer fired; video showed officer beating driver after traffic stop

    A police officer in a Cleveland suburb seen on video repeatedly punching a black motorist during a traffic stop in August has been fired.

    City of Euclid Mayor Kirsten Holzheimer Gail announced Officer Michael Amiott's termination, citing police department rules violations and "additional complaints."
    "After a review, I found Amiott to have violated additional departmental rules, including Conduct Unbecoming and Courtesy, calling into serious question his suitability as a Euclid police officer," Gail said in a statement.
    Euclid Police Chief Scott Meyer first issued Amiott, who is white, the longest possible suspension of 15 days after the dash cam footage came to light. Gail extended that suspension another 30 days before ultimately terminating Amiott on October 13.
    The mayor and police department declined to comment further.

    The cop was suspended and then fired. They kneel to protest cops that get away with it as well as their general hatred of America.

    The firing is a good start, now how about some assault charges?

    My Pastors are not political in any way, but our young Pastor showed the 2 Football players kneeling to pray. I understand why they do that. It is not meant as an insult to the flag.

    Seeing him discuss why they were kneeling gave me a very different perspective. This is a passive resistance to injustice.

    Note here Idiocrat! After reading your article the Attorney General in Ohio is Mike DeWine and that so and so is running for Governor of Ohio! I hope that article shows up in every Ad run against him.

    Mike is a weasel,always was one,and always will be. Sherrod Brown knocked him out of the Senate,he ran for AG, now Governor.

    He publicized a few Drug clinics, but never solved the most horrendous mass murder,ever in Southern Ohio. Simply dropped it,after the publicity died down.

    Ah, I do remember seeing that in the news.
    Me thinks that maybe local officials were participants in their cockfighting ring.

    Drugs. DeWine is always right there when Drugs are mentioned. Thus,the clinic in my home town. Of course the Opoid epidemic is so bad in this state it lost the novelty for DeWine.

    Whoever takes the Gov's seat...I hope that one of the areas of focus is the increasing crime in Cleveland. Euclid, mentioned in the article is a inner ring suburb of Cleveland and used to be a affluent city back in the day. Today, it is a cesspool. It is getting pretty bad in Cleveland and many are deciding if it is worth it to work, live, visit or invest in businesses there. Depending on what stat you look at, it is either #9 or # 5 of the most violent cities in the Country. Even the revitalized Cleveland communities are seeing spikes in crime. I have a coworker who bought a house in Euclid, 10 years ago for over 100K. She is trying to sell it and it is only worth about 30K so she is stuck with it. She has to drive her kids to a charter school 25 miles away from her home because the schools are so bad...even the Catholic schools. Another friend of mine, who is from Palestine, owns several businesses in Cleveland and is looking to close them all due to safety and theft and will reopen them in the suburbs. The last robbery of one of her husbands stores, it took 24 hours for the cops to come out and make a report. He literally had to stay with his business, in the middle of the night, until they showed up. Car jacking at gun point is increasing...with several over one weekend recently. I see the same thing happening in Cleveland like I did in Detroit when I lived and worked there. Like all cities, when the tax base declines, the city cannot afford LE and will rot to the ground. The Mayor of Cleveland has basically watched this happen since he has been in office. So the criteria for my next vote for Gov. will be a intensive plan to work on crime in Cleveland.
