CLEVELAND - As this picture shows police had their hands full Wednesday when around a million people filled the streets of downtown to celebrate the Cavaliers NBA championship.
"For what it is worth, I could not be prouder of the men an women of the Cleveland Police Department from our CPPA members to the bosses on the street with them. Together they quickly adapted and overcame seemingly insurmountable odds and every obstacle thrown at them today." Said Police Union President Steve Loomis.
Police helped reunite more than a dozen lost children with their parents. Many at the parade were impressed with the kindness officers showed the children.
Pastor Rev. Dr Kregg Burris told FOX 8 he captured a moment of an officer's kindness. Pastor Burris told us in his email, "I waited next to the area where people were taken who passed out or lost children. This police officer took great care of this baby while the mother and family were being taken care of by the medical team. Just thought you might appreciate it."
"When faced with potentially deadly trouble they responded professionally, proudly, and passionately. They did not hesitate to run towards the gunfire of a coward and towards the juvenile female victim he shot. The officers applied potentially life saving tourniquets to the young victim's legs while other officers rushed into harm's way to protect yet more innocent civilians from more senseless juvenile gun violence," Loomis said
