Protesters Arrested in Cleveland After Police Acquittal

At least a Dozen people were arrested in Cleveland during protests after an officer was cleared of all charges in the killing of an unarmed black couple.
Michael Brelo was cleared of voluntary manslaughter in the 2012 incident, when he fired 15 shots into their car.
Brelo was one of 13 officers to open fire on Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams during a high-speed car chase. But he was the only one to face charges because he climbed onto the hood of their vehicle and fired directly through the windscreen at the pair who were no longer deemed a threat.
Some 62 police cars were involved in the 22-mile police chase at speeds up to 100 mph
The chase began after police heard what they thought was a gunshot - but turned out to be the sound of the couple's Chevy Malibu backfiring.
