I supported Issue 65, South Euclid's safety forces levy – and I shudder to think what might have happened if there had been fewer officers available over the weekend. But I do not want our cops put in harm's way when it's avoidable, and I want to live in a community where citizens have a reasonable assurance of safety. I also demand, as a citizen, that our police department be permitted to post information without censorship by city officials. It disgusts me that the South Euclid Police Department, for whatever reason, deleted their post about the events Saturday night.
Above is a screen grab of a post made by a South Euclid police officer which appeared on the department's facebook page, then was deleted. Thankfully, a citizen saved this picture before the post was yanked.
