This is an interesting story, from my local bird cage liner, that just about perfectly outlines the complete mess that my hometown of Cleveland has become. After Cleveland Police responded to reports of a shooting in the Flats, a CPD cruiser was stolen. The original text of the article was edited by the Plain Dealer’s Sarah Jane Tribble, but before it was an astute commentator made the following point on the article.

the PD writes: “decided to make the otherwise routine stop more interesting…”

We’ve hit the apex in gun violence.

It’s now regarded as routine by the fourth estate… 

The fact that a man stole a police car, is not the notable point of this story. The fact that violent crime is now a normal thing in the city of Cleveland is.

Thank you Cuyahoga county democrats, Cleveland is now officially the wild wild west, under your watch.
