2 Officers Fired Over Owensby Investigation
Unfortunately this is not over. Both of the officers can still appeal the decision, and the family of Mr. Owensby is still calling for Federal Prosecution. This case was from the beginning a total mess. There was no other choice but to fire these two police officers. This will not satisfy any of the activists who have been pushing this issue. The response to this act will be at best mixed. They will approve of the firings, but will want more. The problem is that the city can't really do any more. The level of spin will be interesting to observe. I imagine a bit of tough talk will come from the mouths of the CJC and the CBUF, but nothing will come from their hollow words. WCPO's version and the AP version.
