Cleveland Brown’s Isaiah Crowell has made his bed and he may have to lay in it, if Stephen Loomis, President of Cleveland’s Police Patrolmen Association, has anything to do with it.
A day after the five Dallas officers were killed, Crowell took to social media and posted a photo of a cop getting his throat slashed by a masked man. He deleted it and later apologized but according to Loomis, it isn’t enough.
According to TMZ, Loomis is so upset that he is threatening to pull Cleveland officers, sheriffs and state troopers out of First Energy Stadium for the upcoming season if he doesn’t make things right. He says that Crowell needs to “go to Dallas, help the families who lost their loved ones last week, write them a check, look them in the eyes and give a heartfelt apology.”
Crowell stated previously that he acted out of rage because of the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile that had just happened days before but Loomis isn’t buying it saying “You’re a grown ass man” and that Crowell can “kiss his ass.” Loomis also compared his post to it being as offensive as a picture of “historical African American men being hung from a tree in the 60’s.”
That was quite the comparison and one could argue that the “historical” photo Loomis is referring to, is what is currently happening now, they just aren’t using rope.
