A public forum exploded in Cleveland last night as controversy continues following a shocking police shooting barrage a few days ago that has been likened to the final bloody scene of the movie Bonnie and Clyde. Itís gained little national attention, for some reason.

A car chase that started in Cleveland ended a few minutes later with thirteen local cops firing a total of 137 bullets into a car killing a man and a woman inside.

2. Keep the heat on the cops, Cleveland. This shit is out of control.

We have a serious problem with police culture in this country. We need effective civilian oversight.

5. This is another legacy of the "war on drugs"

an overarmed, and militaristic police department.
