I was thinking why in the world would Sam Malone get an endorsement for City Council from the FOP? Could they have been confused as to why they recognized him?
If you are wondering what I am talking about and don't remember things that happened 8 years ago, here's my blog post on Malone's arrest for beating his son with a belt. I'm wondering how many FOP members actually knew this. If they did and don't care, then I wonder how many of them also beat their kids with belts. Then I wonder why people are not more concerned with Cincinnati Police brutality more often.
Also, No, Republicans, I don't care that Malone was 'acquitted.' He admitted to beating his son with a belt, so what ever technicality exists, if Malone did this to anyone other than his son, and didn't appear in front of a Republican Judge, he would have been found guilty of assault.
The fact that the police union endorsed him is an insult to victims of crime everywhere.
