Cleveland deadly police chase, November 2012 Cleveland deadly police chase, November 2012

There have been a number of protests in wake of the deadly Cleveland police chase and shooting. Now, Reporter Ed Gallek has learned of a rally for the police.

Community organizers are planning an event for this Sunday, February 10, from 5-6 p.m. in front of Cleveland's Second District Headquarters on Fulton just off of I-71.

Organizers are encouraging people to bring signs in support of the police. Organizers say it will be a rally calling for peace and prayers for the officers involved, as well as for the families of those involved, including the suspects' families.

Last November, Timothy Russell, 43, and Malissa Williams, 30, died when officers fired 137 bullets into their car after a high-speed chase last November. The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner revealed Williams was shot 24 times and Russell was shot 23 times. Both had cocaine in their systems, and Russell was drunk.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine's investigation came down hard, criticizing the leadership of the Cleveland Police Department. It revealed a systemic failure within the Cleveland Police Department. Both a command and communications failure.
