What a loss on so many levels.

On Saturday, a Cleveland cop who shot 49 rounds into the car of an unarmed black couple in 2012 was acquitted of manslaughter.

For those who don't remember the horrifying details, the cop in question, along with two other officers, used what prosecutors deemed as "excessive force" when trying to apprehend an unarmed black couple in a car chase.

Once the car came to a stop, officer Michael Brelo climbed up onto the hood of the couple's car and fired 15 fatal shots, bringing his total amount of shots to 49.

Brelo's defense tried to argue that the officer thought he had been shot at and that's why he acted aggressively.

So, what do YOU think of the acquittal verdict?
