CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM- Cleveland activist and journalist Kathy Wray Coleman (pictured), among others, will give testimony before a community panel of the Cleveland Truth Commission on Poverty, Colemans slated to testify on poverty, police brutality, prosecutorial and judicial malfeasance, the heroin and opiate epidemic, racism, sexism and other matters relative to the legal system in Cuyahoga County at 10 am on Sat, Oct 14, 2017 at the Franklin Circle Christian Church in Cleveland, 1688 Fulton Road on the city's west side.

Comprised primarily of activists and anti-poberty advocates the truth commission is not an official venue, but it has clout, and influence.


Hundreds are expected to attend, organizers said Wednesday.


The public forum, which is scheduled to conclude at 4 pm, will include five -minute testimonals from individuals on poverty as it relates to the judicial system, health care, housing, education, and the environment, and is hosted by  greater Cleveland activist groups that are listed further on in this article.

 

"We invite the community to this powerful public event on poverty and the obstacles poor people face on a regular basis," said Don Bryant, a community activist who leads the greater Cleveland Immigrant Support Network, and a key organizer of the forum.


Others will testify on various issues, including a Black woman whose son was killed in prison.


Coleman is a former 14-year public school biology teacher who leads the Cleveland based -Imperial Women Coalition and who trained as a journalist at the Call and Post Newspaper in Cleveland for 17 years before becoming the editor at ClevelandUrbanNews.Com and the KathyWrayColemanOnlineNewsBlog.Com , Ohio's most read digital Black newspaper and Black blog. She has an undergraduate degree in biology, two master's degrees, and was all but dissertation with a straight A record at the University of Akron in its doctoral program. She was arbitrarily arrested at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland last July in what she says is retaliation for her activism and writings and for leading community activists in a protest at the RNC on Public Square that day against police killings of Black people and violence against women .


She was charged with misdemeanor resisting arrest and has pleaded not guilty and wants a trial  by jury, though the speedy trial time has expired, data show, and her attorney in the case, Scott Hurley, refuses to move to dismiss the case, allegedly saying he is angry because she will not agree to be quiet on public corruption matters, all while refusing to withdraw from the case.


The case is before Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Charles Patton, a former city councilman, whom she says is stalking her and was handpicked to harass her by outgoing chief judge Ronald Adrine, after judges Michelle Earley, Lauren Moore and Pinkey Carr all withdrew as judges in the case, allegedly because they were asked to fix the case for City Hall, and others.


She said that Attorney Hurley, who is White, is an assistant public defender who operates for the establishment and the prosecution indirectly, and is indicative of how indigent counsel work against the best interest of poor people and Black people.  He has repeatedly threatened her, she says, and has had secret exparte meetings with Judge Patton in alleged violation of the Ohio Lawyer's Professional Code of Responsibility.


Following her arrest at the RNC last year, she was jailed for three months in the Cuyahoga County Jail without bond, after her bond was paid where she said she did an extensive investigation on issues ranging from ineffective assistance of counsel to poor people, to fraudulent and fixed indictments on criminal charges against innocent Black people, excessive bonds, law enforcement abuse, racism, sexism,  judicial corruption, the heroin and opiate epidemic, and prosecutorial malfeasance.


"Poor people, women, Blacks and others are at risk by a legal system in our county of Cuyahoga, in municipal, common pleas and other courts, and in our country that is broken across the continuum and is a detriment to the survival of the Black community," said Coleman. "No justice. No peace."

 

Cuyahoga County includes Cleveland and is roughly 29 percent Black. It is the second largest county in Ohio, and a Democratic stronghold.


Coleman says she has been under attack for years for her activism and writings, the most recent threats being that she will be illegally arrested and jailed unless she agrees not  to lead the annual anniversary rally of the Imperial Murders of 11 Black women on Imperial Avenue by serial killer Anthony Sowell, which is scheduled for 3 pm on Oct 29 at 12205 in front of where Sowell's home once stood.

Coleman said the Imperial Avenue Murders rally, which she has led for the past seven years, all but one year, will go forward with or without her leadership, though she will be there if not jailed per the initiative of corrupt Cleveland City Hall officials, racist cops, judges like Judge Charles Patton, and other scumbag politicians, both Black and White alike, who have wno scruples.
