137 Shots in Cleveland
Shocking story out of Cleveland today, as controversy rages over a car chase that ended with 13 local cops firing a total of 137 bullets into a car--media likening it to the end of "Bonnie and Clyde"--killing the two inside. Police had claimed it all started with shots fired from the car at police, but no weapons were discovered in the car. Also: the two dead are black and 12 of 13 cops are white. See Plain Dealer story here raising all sorts of questions. Roldo Bartimole's commentary.
