‘Bully’ of Bellaire: The Ohio Police Chief Who Just Hired Tamir Rice’s Killer

The police chief of Bellaire, Ohio, has been reprimanded for cursing out a civilian. He’s been accused of kicking in doors to enforce imaginary property codes. And he’s been the target of an online petition calling for his resignation over “bullying” behavior.

And now the village’s top cop, Richard “Dick” Flanagan, is under fire again–this time for the mind-boggling decision to hire the officer who shot and killed 12-year-old Tamir Rice four years ago and who was then fired from the Cleveland police force for failing to disclose that his previous employer found him unfit for service.
