Former NBA player and current Warrensville Heights Mayor Brad Sellers said the players are sick and tired of being sick and tired.
"This is not an indictment of police because I got a number of officers here. Everybody is not a bad person. Right. You got some bad apples in the group and it just happens to be in this group it goes nationwide. So if you multiply that by the 50 states and all the communities in each of these states, guess you've got a lot of bad apples out here," Sellers said.
