Cleveland police were none too pleased when Browns receiver Andrew Hawkins appeared wearing a “Justice for Tamir Rice and John Crawford” T-shirt. The back of it read “The Real Battle for Ohio” to go with Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Police union president Jeff Follmer said Hawkins’ T-shirt was “pathetic” and demanded an apology from the Browns. “He’s disrespecting the police on a job that we had to do and make a split-second decision,” said Follmer. The Browns politely refused Follmer’s request. The team released a statement: “We have great respect for the Cleveland Police Department and the work that they do to protect and serve our city. We also respect our players’ rights to project their support and bring awareness to issues that are important to them if done so in a responsible manner.” The 12-year-old was killed by Cleveland cop Timothy Loehmann while holding a fake gun. Crawford, 22, was killed in Beavercreek, Ohio, in August by police while holding a toy rifle.
