Concurrent with the latest targeted assassination of police officers occurring in Louisiana, Stephen Loomis ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) - who (purely coincidentally, I'm sure) looks exactly like a giant penis - as head of the Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association, has come out loud and clear in public against the rule of law, the constitution, and due process:
“We are sending a letter to Gov. Kasich requesting assistance from him. He could very easily do some kind of executive order or something — I don’t care if it’s constitutional or not at this point,” Stephen Loomis, president of Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association, told CNN. “They can fight about it after the RNC or they can lift it after the RNC, but I want him to absolutely outlaw open-carry in Cuyahoga County until this RNC is over.”
Loomis also told CNN that law enforcement would be stepping up inspections of anyone who is holstering a weapon in the downtown area.
“We are going to be looking very, very hard at anyone who has an open carry,” he said. “An AR-15, a shotgun, multiple handguns. It’s irresponsible of those folks — especially right now — to be coming downtown with open carry AR’s or anything else. I couldn’t care less if it’s legal or not. We are constitutional law enforcement, we love the Constitution, support it and defend it, but you can’t go into a crowded theater and scream fire. And that’s exactly what they’re doing by bringing those guns down there.”
LinkOhio allows licensed firearm owners to wear holstered firearms in public except in “secure zone” areas around the RNC Convention site at Quicken Loans Arena. Legal firearm owners can walk around the city within the 1.7 square mile regulated “event zone” with any firearm not banned by the state.
Looking at this dispassionately and conservatively, I'd say that gives the CPPA until about sunup local time tomorrow to both
1) Fire Loomis, for cause
2) Rescind and distance themselves from his dictatorial and unconstitutional remarks.
Anyone who lends any support to Loomis should be investigated and prosecuted with him under federal statutes regarding conspiracy and civil rights, including any "extra scrutiny" of citizens found to be studiously obeying the law and presenting no probable cause for any additional "inspections" of their persons or property in Cleveland during the convention period.
As it is, none of that will happen, so any Cleveland cops who subsequently get killed or injured during the sure-to-follow Activist Follies scheduled to drown out the GOP Convention there can die or suffer while wounded happily, knowing that their blood is on the hands of the president of their own CPPA, the spiritual heir of Reichsfuhrer Himmler, Stalin, Castro, and Pol Pot. In word, if not deed.
Well played, shitbag.
Cleveland's Finest should sleep well, knowing what an unabashed kleine Nazi dictator they've elected to represent their interests. And yet they'll still probably sit there and wonder why everyday people are starting to root for the gunmen...
The rank and file ought to pray that citizens can tell the difference between cops on the beat, and their jackassical mouthpiece.
I just want to know why, O Why? such stacked piles of shit as Loomis never get capped in any one of the far-too-numerous shooting rampages by the Special Snowflakes. If only to leave open the question of the existence of a benevolent deity in the universe, if not pour encourager les autres.
In fairness, at least for his part, Gov. Kasich took about 0.2 seconds to issue a release in response to this idiocy, to the effect that the governor of Ohio is not empowered to arbitrarily suspend US or Ohio state law purely for the convenience of police union goobers with room temperature IQs, or the at-least 51% of their union members who voted them into their position. Which, whatever his other virtues and flaws, puts Kasich above the midline in understanding the Constitution and his official powers, in comparison to the governors of the other 49 states. Or at any rate, smart enough not to openly hoist a swastika flag over Ohio.
I could be wrong though: Loomis may simply be bucking for a job over at the US DOJ or the FBI. Shrillary's going to need a lot of gauleiters if she wins.
