As you probably know, Cleveland police chief Calvin Williams was interviewed for a segment on 60 Minutes that aired last night. 

WIlliams says yes, there are bad officers on the street, and it's his job to weed them out. He says he's sad that a 12-year-old boy lost his life at the hands of an officer. He says the department is investigating and evaluating how it hires officers. But, Williams remained steadfast in his denial, echoed by Frank Jackson, that there are systemic issues at hand.

Bill Whitaker: The report found a pattern of excessive use of force. You disagree with that?

Calvin Williams: Yes, I do.

Bill Whitaker: The report found that it was systemic within the division. You disagree with that?

Calvin Williams: Yes, I do.
