Browns threatened by Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association
Last week, Isaiah Crowell posted a disturbing and graphic image of a police officer with his neck sliced open by figure with his face covered. As a result the Browns may have to alter security plans for home games during the upcoming season.
The now deleted post, not surprisingly, generated a great deal of backlash directed towards the Cleveland running back. Some want the organization to release the player, something the Browns have indicated they have no plans of doing at this time. While it looks as though Crowell will be at FirstEnergy Stadium this fall, the head of Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association has threatened to pull officers from home games.
Stephen Loomis was understandably not pleased with Crowell’s post on social media and isn’t buying his apology. “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. “I will pull Cleveland officers, sheriffs, state troopers out of First Energy Stadium this season if he doesn’t make it right,” he continued.
Loomis wasn’t done. He also declared Crowell’s apology has not been and will not be accepted. “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.”
Crowell is preparing to enter this third season with the Browns. While the franchise has responded by stating its intention to keep him on the roster, it did express disappointment in the 23-year-old and there’s always the possibility of the Browns changing their stance, which is worth following in the coming days and weeks.
