CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-Cleveland, Ohio- The mother of slain police victim Daniel Ficker, who was shot and killed by Cleveland police at his Parma, Ohio home on July 4 in 2011 and whose family settled a 2.25 million excessive force and wrongful death lawsuit with the city two weeks ago, will appear at 4:30 pm today, Sunday, Jan. 15, 2017, at Radio One Studio at 6665 Carnegie Avenue in Cleveland. (Editor's note: Read on below for information as to a press conference by community activists at 4:30 pm in front of Radio One today to address the Cleveland police killing of Ficker, 12-year-old Tamir Rice, and others police killing victims)

 

Bernadette Rolen, Ficker's mother, will appear live on the Art McKoy University Show of Common Sense at 5 pm on Jan 15 in the Radio One studio to talk about what she says was the police murder of her unarmed son, and will be flanked by activists at a 4:30 pm press conference in front of Radio One.  The weekly program runs from 5pm-7pm on Sunday's (Call Art McKoy of of Black on Black Crime Inc. at 216-253-4070 or Kathy Wray Coleman of the Imperial Women Coalition at 216-659-0473 for more information. McKoy, earlier today, told Coleman, also editor--in-chief at Cleveland Urban News.Com, Ohio's most read digital Black newspaper, that activists and community members concerned about Cleveland police killings are invited to attend the press conference today.").

 

"I will be there for the radio program," Rolen told Coleman, a Cleveland activist who leads the Imperial Women Coalition and  has led rallies with McKoy for justice for Ficker, who was White, and others erroneously killed by Cleveland police over the last six years, including 12-year-old Tamir Rice, Tanisha Anderson, Malissa Williams, Timothy Russell, rapper Kenneth Smith, and Brandon Jones."

 

"And thank you for your support over these five and a half years," said Rolen to Coleman"

 

Activists will also address Cleveland police murders in general at today's press conference, including Tamir Rice, who was gunned down by Cleveland police and made national news last week after his mother, Samaria Rice, and Rice attorney Subodh Chandra, lambasted the city of Cleveland, Mayor Frank Jackson and Police Chief Calvin Williams for announcing internal discipline of police that does pot include punishment for excessive use of force.

 

A $6 million settlement in the Tamir Rice case from the city has been had, though the Rice family, led by Samira  Rice and Attorney Chandra, say that that is not enough and on Friday called the upcoming police discipline disrespectful and "disappointing and disheartening."

 

Samaria Rice wants the police officers involved in her son's killing, Timothy Loehmann, who pulled the trigger, and his partner Frank Garmback, to be criminally charged, something both escaped via impropriety by since ousted and former Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty.

 

Ficker was 27-years-old at his death where police claim without any evidence that he stole uncovered jewel at a party in Cleveland on July 3, 2011, the day before they crossed jurisdictional lines and beat him up and killed the father of two.

 

Officer Matt Craska did the shooting and was accompanied by officer David Mindek, both of whom have since left the force without any internal discipline or criminal prosecution, the latter also with the support of ousted former county prosecutor Tim McGinty, who is White and a former longtime common pleas judge. CLICK HERE TO READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE ON THE DANIEL FICKER CASE AND THE AFFILIATED LAWSUIT SETTLEMENT AT CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM, OHIO'S LEADER IN BLACK DIGITAL NEWS

 

Rice, who was Black, was killed by Loehmann, who is White, after Loehmann and and officer Garmback, who is also White, zoomed in on on the kid at  the Cudell Recreation Center on the city's largely White west side, aggressive actions that followed a 9-1-1 call of a child carrying a likely toy gun, a toy gun  in fact.

 

Among the discipline announced last week by the city of the two Rice cops is discipline for pulling up on the child in a police car allegedly without the requisite caution, and for Loehman having killed Tamir in under two seconds.

 

The Cleveland Police Patromen's Association, led by its president Steve Loomis, support the police officers involved in both the Rice and Ficker killings, as well as all other police involved in questional police killings, most of them involving dead Black people.
