#1 ...The CPD is tough, loyal, and faithful unto death of the people and city it serves.

They can also be remarkably unpleasant people when annoyed. With everything else on their plate right now, Mr Crowell's actions could not have gone over well at all.

#2 Just apologize? I seem to remember a team owner who was forced to sell after, a much milder, faux pas.

#5 Crowell was thrown out of the U. of Georgia after a serious scrape with the law. He attended a lesser school and was not drafted. He was picked up as a free agent by the (hopeless and hapless) Cleveland Browns.

#6 Don't "threaten" to pull police protection,just do it. Now. Then see what Crowell & the Browns do, & adjust accordingly.

#8 From cleveland.com today:
"If that man needs to make this right, he needs to make a grand gesture," Loomis [head of CLE police union] said.

He called for Crowell to apologize in person to the family of police officers killed in Dallas and donate to their families.

If Crowell does not do that, then Loomis called on the Browns organization or the NFL to sanction Crowell.

If none of that happens, Loomis said he will resort to rallying his officers to refuse to work security for the Browns by adopting an "official union policy" not to work security for the team.

"If the Browns don't think I can get this done, I've got some swamp land in Florida to sell them," Loomis said.

The Browns on late Monday issued a statement of their own, calling a written apology for Crowell's post "insufficient."

"We have spoken to Isaiah regarding his extremely disturbing and unacceptable social media decision,'' the Browns said. "It was completely inappropriate and we have made him aware of our high level of disappointment. Isaiah has apologized but also knows that just an apology is insufficient and that he must take steps to make a positive difference after a very negative and impactful post.''

#9 This calls for cruel and unusual punishment: make him sign an extension with the Browns.
