Mayor John Cranley apologized to the Fraternal Order of Police Thursday night after his office issued a proclamation honoring the man who ambushed and killed Cincinnati Police Officer Sonny Kim. "This was a huge mistake," Cranley said, pausing to wipe tears from his eyes. "At the end of the day, the buck stops with me and there is no excuse. I am sorry, and it won't happen again." Officer Sonny Kim, who died June 19, 2015. According to a retraction issued by the city, a new employee at Cranley's office was the one who stamped the proclamation that June 1, 2017, would become "Tre Day" in honor of Trepierre Hummons. The proclamation depicted Hummons as a person whose life "will be a life remembered through the Trepierre Foundation's efforts to impact mental illness in kids and young adults." That's not how Cincinnati police officers remember him.
