Cincinnati Briefly Honors Man Who Killed Officer



Posted May 19, 2017 10:20 AM CDT
(Newser) – The mayor of Cincinnati has tearfully apologized to city police after his office unwittingly approved a proclamation honoring a man who killed an officer in an ambush. Mayor John Cranley delivered his apology Thursday at the police union hall, saying the proclamation was stamped by a new staffer. He said he also called the officer's widow to apologize, per the AP. "This was a huge mistake," said Cranley. "It's not done intentionally. It's human error, but the buck stops with me." The proclamation designated June 1, 2017, as "Tre Day" in honor of Trepierre Hummons. Investigators say Hummons was hoping for "suicide by cop" when he killed Officer Sonny Kim in June 2015 before being gunned down by another officer.

The mayor's office received the request for the proclamation from Ronald Hummons for his son Tre's birthday. It did not provide the son's full name, Cranley said. It said a proclamation would recognize work done by a foundation, set up following his son's death, to address mental illness. "I love our police department," Cranley said. "I would never do anything to hurt them." The proclamation has since been retracted. Cranley's office receives proclamation requests from Cincinnati residents every week. Many are vetted by his press office and the mayor doesn't see them all.
