Prosecutor Timothy McGinty says he's run into a blue wall of silence.
Before Officer Michael Brelo's trial began, 16 Cleveland police officers declined to meet with prosecutors to review their testimony about the officer's shooting of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams.
Once the case reached a courtroom, seven officers exercised their 5th Amendment rights and refused to testify about Brelo, who prosecutors say leaped onto the hood of Russell's car after a lengthy pursuit and fired 15 rounds from his pistol, killing both occupants.
The officers' lack of cooperation led McGinty to ask the court to treat them as hostile witnesses. In court documents, he likened their silence to the actions of an "organized crime syndicate."
McGinty declined to comment on the pending case, but in court documents his office has lambasted the officers and the police union.
"This unprecedented failure to cooperate with investigators then and now is relevant and direct evidence that some of these Cleveland police officers subpoenaed to testify refuse to do their duty and are adverse to the best interests of the city," prosecutors wrote.

Ep. 20 Occupy: Space
According to Planetary Society, "In 200,000 years of human existence, people have walked on the Moon only in the last 44." One comment asks, "66 years after the 1st powered flight, man landed on the moon 44 years later what's the goal for humans in space?" And another notes"Or, sadly, in the narrow range from 44 to 41 years ago." Census data says median age for 2010 was 37.2 years of age, so about half the people in the country aren't old enough to have seen any moonwalks.
