Cincinnati Briefly Honors Man Who Killed Officer

Wochit Headline News - Friday, 19 May 2017
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. The proclamation designated June 1 as "Tre Day" in honor of Trepierre Hummons, who 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 said a proclamation would recognize work done by a foundation, set up following his son's death, to address mental illness. Cranley's office receives proclamation requests from Cincinnati residents every week, but many are vetted by his press office and the mayor doesn't see them all.
