VIDEO: Cleveland Police Union Defends 'Perfect Chase'

The head of a Cleveland police union is defending a recent police chase that involved 62 cars.

"When you go 25 minutes in a car chase and no other police cars or police officers got hurt, and no citizens driving through major intersections got hurt, I think that's the perfect chase," Detective Jeffrey Follmer, president of the Cleveland Police Patrolman's Association, stated Thursday morning.

Follmer appeared on WCPN Radio less than 24 hours after first calling the November 29 police pursuit "the perfect chase," during a news conference. The CPPA and the Fraternal Order of Police both defended police actions during the chase, which ended with the shooting deaths of the two people being pursued.

This was the perfect and proportional chase only if you were trying to secure a bridge on the Rhine 68 years ago.
