Rapid Response Alert - Euclid, OH

MOBB United for Social Change Continues to Demand Reforms in the Euclid, OH PD After Beating of Peaceful Protester


On August 12, 2017, police dashcam video showed officer Michael Amiott beating Richard Hubbard III in Euclid, OH. While this case is a travesty of justice on its own merits, it is part of a larger pattern of misconduct and violence by Euclid police officers. Hubbard is the third incident of police brutality by Euclid PD just since March of this year. One of these incidents resulted in a fatal shooting by Euclid police officers.

By failing to hold officers accountable, failing to properly train officers and failure to engage in necessary reforms of its processes, the Euclid police department has created an environment of mistrust and terror in the community they are supposed to serve and protect. To combat the fear created by the PD, peaceful protesters have been demanding reforms of the Euclid police department. In response, Euclid officers beat a protester, Damien Parker, while issuing a warrant for his arrest. The Euclid police department and Euclid city officials are failing their community. They are not responding to requests for transparency or for reforms of their policing practices.

MOBB United for Social Change stands with the community of Euclid, OH to demand change in the Euclid PD.

  1. Investigation
  2. Mandatory Implicit Bias and De-escalation Training for all LEOs
  3. Euclid PD continues to demonstrate a need for a Civilian Review Board
