Tuesday proved a big day for large speeches and proclamations from two leaders in particular. As for the guy actually leading, his name is Stephen Loomis. He is the President of the Cleveland Police Patrolman’s Association, and he is more than a little irate at Cleveland Brown’s running back Isaiah Crowell, for posting an image of a police officer having his throat slit on social media.
However, Loomis is more than just angry. He also has a plan for Crowell. In comments made to TMZ, Loomis spelled out what he expects Crowell to do:
“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 told TMZ. If Crowell doesn’t, there will be consequences.”
What might those consequences be?
“I will pull Cleveland officers, sheriffs, state troopers out of First Energy Stadium this season if he doesn’t make it right,” Loomis said. “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.”
Cleveland became home to a champion in major sports for the first time in over 50 years this summer. If Mr. Loomis sticks to his guns and follows through with his challenge to Crowell, I think they’ll have another.
