Unlike liberal universities that regularly honor cop killers like Mumia Abu-Jamal and Assata Shakur, this appears to be a mistake. Maybe. That doesn’t make it okay, just slightly less shitty. Cincinnati’s mayor issued a proclamation honoring a man who shot a police officer to death. Sadly, this travesty might have gone unnoticed if it weren’t for an astute police officer.
Cincinnati.com reports that on June 19, 2015 CPD Officer Sonny Kim (right) was responding to a 911 call. The father of 3 wasn’t supposed to be on duty but he had been tapped for overtime. As it turns out, the emergency call was a trap set by Trepierre Hummons (left), who wanted to kill a cop. Hummons shot Kim and the two began to wrestle. Hummons managed to get Kim’s gun and used it in a gun battle with two other cops. Humans was killed and Officer Kim ended up dying from his wounds.
Hummons’ father Ronald made a request to the Mayor’s office and the city council to name a day in honor of his cop-killing son, supposedly to call attention to mental illness. I guess nobody bothered to look into this request and the proclamation was issued declaring June 1 “Tre Day.” Ronald even bragged about it by posting it on Facebook.
Another police officer noticed this offensive proclamation and made a post of his own asking, “Am I the only one who sees something wrong with this?”
With that, Cincinnati’s mayor was forced to hold a press conference to disavow this celebration of a cop-killing piece of shit.
Outraged Cincinnati cops received an apology from the mayor of the Ohio city after his office inadvertently issued a proclamation naming a day in honor of a cop killer.
Mayor John Cranley issued the apology Thursday, saying that the proclamation never should have been approved…
“I am sorry that my office, that we mistakenly issued a proclamation on behalf of a man that killed– murdered– Sonny Kim,” said Cranley.
Cranley went on to say that his communications director approved the proclamation without his knowledge. He also said that the proclamation has been revoked.
Oh, did I mention that Mayor John Cranley is a democrat? Given his political affiliation it’s hard not to think that this wasn’t quite as big of a mistake as he would like us to believe. Maybe this was a communications error or perhaps it was something a liberal politician thought he could get away with.
I honestly find it hard to believe that the Mayor’s office would issue a proclamation without doing any research into it. It’s not like this would have taken a massive investigation; a simple Google search would have revealed that the recipient of the proclamation was a cop killer.
Either way: incompetence or malice, democrats are shitty people. I defy anyone to furnish evidence that a Republican, politician or otherwise, has ever celebrated the life of a person who murdered a police officer. For liberals this is a regular occurrence.
