Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Cleveland Police Suspend 63 Officers Over Deadly Chase
Cleveland’s police chief says 63 officers have been suspended for breaking rules during a deadly chase last November.
Chief Michael McGrath says the suspensions announced Tuesday are the result of disciplinary hearings. The officers were involved in the 23-minute chase that wove through a neighborhood before ending in gunfire. Officers fired 137 shots, and the fleeing driver and passenger were killed.
McGrath says the longest suspension handed down was 10 days. One officer who broke rules during the chase was disciplined but not suspended.
The hearings didn’t include officers involved in the shooting. Those will come after prosecutors finish reviewing what happened.
Police have already announced punishments for 12 supervisors stemming from the chase. One sergeant was fired. A captain and lieutenant were demoted, and nine sergeants were suspended.
