Cleveland Police: ‘Isaiah Crowell Better Donate Money or We’ll Pull Cops Out of First Energy Stadium’
Cleveland Browns running back Isaiah Crowell has caused all types of problems after he took to Instagram last week and posted a photo of a guy in a mask slashing the neck of a police officer. He quickly deleted it, but it didn’t matter because the damage was already done.
Crowell has since apologized, but according to TMZ, that apology is not enough for local Cleveland police.
“But Stephen Loomis, President of Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association, thinks the “store-bought apology” isn’t enough. “He 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.”
Loomis says Crowell’s post was as “offensive as putting a picture of historical African-American men being hung from a tree in the 60s.” He adds that if Crowell doesn’t go to Dallas and make a donation, “I will pull Cleveland officers, sheriffs, state troopers out of First Energy Stadium this season if he doesn’t make it right.”
As for Crowell admitting he was wrong and acted out of rage — Loomis says, “You’re a grown ass man, and you claim you were too emotional to know it was wrong? Think we’ll accept your apology? Kiss my ass.”
Strong words from the president, who is not impressed that Crowell met with the police chief, he’s demanding the Browns or the NFL drop the hammer on Crowell.
