Protesters march outside Shirey home

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        About a dozen protesters marched outside the home of Cincinnati's city manager on Sunday.

        It's the second time in five months that members of Cincinnati Black United Front Special Forces have rallied in front of John Shirey's Hyde Park house over what they describe as police misconduct.

        The group, angry about the police-shooting death of an unarmed black man this month, called for Mr. Shirey's resignation.

        Spokesman William Kirkland said the city manager should be held responsible for actions by city employees. Mr. Shirey, who was at home during the protest, did not address the protesters.
