Police Chief Offended By Local Newspaper Column

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON - Chief McClelland says, "we all know fried chicken, watermelons, those type things can have sometimes on minorities and particularly African Americans...I can tell you this Isiah it's insensitive at best and I'm shocked that the Houston Chronicle would allow those type of remarks."

HOUSTON CHRONICLE EXECUTIVE EDITOR JEFF COHEN TELLS FOX 26 THEIR CRITICISM OF CHIEF MCLELLAND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HIS RACE.  

COHEN SAYS THE BIGGER ISSUE IS THE THOUSANDS OF CRIMINAL CASES WITH LEADS THAT HAVEN'T BEEN INVESTIGATED BY HPD BACK IN 2013.  

HE ALSO SAYS THERE SHOULD BE AN INDEPENDENT THIRD PARTY BROUGHT IN TO REVIEW HPD'S BALLOONING BILLION DOLLAR ANNUAL BUDGET.
