Former Cleveland cop Timothy Loehmann withdrew his application for a job in a Pennsylvania borough.
Former Cleveland officer Timothy Loehmann was named the lone cop in a borough of roughly 700 people.
Timothy Loehmann was not indicted for the shooting but was fired from the Cleveland department for lying about his poor job history as an officer.
Electing a president whom Colin Powell calls "an international pariah" might please those who like nothing better than "sticking it" to friends and enemies alike. Shall America model itself on Trump by being pathologically thin-skinned, stiffing our creditors, and evading responsibility? With such a leader, who needs enemies?
But no word on whether the cops he represents need similar training.
This difference, of how our society perceives black and white children is what makes the juxtaposition of Couch and Rice particularly compelling. The individuals within the cogs of the criminal justice system examining the liability of Officers Loehmann and Garmback in the death of Tamir Rice absolved them of responsibility in Rice's tragic death.
Tamir Rice was not on trial, but he might as well have been.
