An editorial coming out Wednesday in the Call & Post, a weekly Cleveland black newspaper, calls for the jobs of Safety Director Michael McGrath, Mayoral Assistant Marty Flask and possibly even Mayor Frank Jackson.
“After watching the video recording that shows the killing of Tamir Rice at Cudell Park, the community as a collective was both saddened and outraged,” it says.
It calls for the resignation of McGrath and Flask, adding, “It has also been recognized that if Mayor Frank Jackson insists on supporting this blatantly racist, brutal and unconstitutional treatment of black people at the hands of the Cleveland Police Department, then he too will have to follow suit.”
The newspaper calls Jackson “a nice, decent man” but says “now is not the time to play nice.”
