Bellaire, Ohio:

The village has hired Timothy Loehmann, a former Cleveland police officer who fatally shot 12-year-old Tamir Rice four years ago, as one of two new part-time officers with its police department.

The other part-time officer is Eric Smith, Bethesda’s still-suspended police chief who remains under investigation by the Ohio Attorney General’s office for allegedly misusing a statewide computer system for law enforcement.

Here’s more about Eric Smith, by the way. Not much more, though — he allegedly used the database “for his own purposes,” but what those purposes were is a mystery.

I wasn’t planning to go there anyway, which is a good thing, because Bellaire (pop. 4,278) seems to go out of its way to hire disgraced cops from the rest of Ohio.
