Well, if Cleveland wins the Republican Presidential Convention, the CPD better get its ducks in a row or the whole nation will see.
BTW, Love's attorney should take out an ad and offer a modest reward for more video footage of this event. I bet half the crowd were using their cells to tape it.
This traffic stop occurred near a stream of pedestrians and other cars, many of whom might have been intoxicated. Officer Montague had a crowd control problem as well as a traffic stop on his hands, which he could not avoid except by allowing Love to make (an illegal?) turn. Better training, procedures, staffing levels, etc. should be developed so that no other CPD officers and Cleveland drivers are put in this position.
Hopefully, Love will maker a full recovery and if he can prove the facts he alleges in his lawsuit, he will be compensated -- as he should be. I kept thinking, if that had been me driving, could I have avoided being shot by doing something different?
I'm not sure -- and we should not accept that risk for our city.
Holy Toledo. This puts an underground garage beneath the Stupid Building.
I think what Kelly Blazek did was unkind and unprofessional and I said so above. But the threats to harm her, allegations that she was involved in a young woman's suicide and directions to her cell phone number are WAY OVER THE TOP. Each and every one of you who wrote such things have done the EXACT SAME THING you complain of -- overreacting and being unnecessarily cruel.
Geeze Louise, what an ass! This language is out of line for any established professional, but one whose career is jobs placement should be immune from errors of this kind.
If this woman actually thought it was detrimental to include the young job seeker in her Yahoo Group or LinkedIn profile, there were plenty of gracious ways to say that and many other positive things she could have said to help. "I'm sorry, I do not work with people in your circumstances, but I can recommend this (book, resource, etc.) that others in your situation have found very helpful."
Anyone who demeans an unemployed job seeker to inflate their own ego is cruel, and not someone I would care to do business with.
BTW, nice to see a young person returning to Cleveland, and my suggestion is, build a network of local people. Get involved in politics, or your church, or a volunteer organization and when you find people you like who are working, buy one a cup of coffee once or twice a week and ask for their advice.
I hope the young job seeker has great success in finding work and enjoys living here.
Sorry, but shoveling does not get you the right to claims "dibs" on a parking space.
