In a 387-349 vote, the Cleveland Police Patrolman's Association voted former president Jeff Follmer back into the presidency this week. Steve Loomis will return to his detective work in the Third District.

It's an instance of history repeating itself at CPPA, as Follmer beat Loomis in a 2011 vote. Then, in 2014, Loomis beat Follmer.

This week, Follmer beat Loomis again.

We summarized Follmer's 2014 departure, which was marked by the shooting death of Tamir Rice and a Follmerish rant against former Browns WR Andrew Hawkins. “It’s pretty pathetic when athletes think they know the law," he said at the time, referencing Hawkins' shirt, which read "Justice for Tamir Rice and John Crawford III."

A statement from Steve Loomis on the results is below.
