CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-CLEVELAND, Ohio- A 17-year-old Cleveland teen was shot and killed Sunday, Feb 19 on the playground of Andrew J. Rickoff Elementary School on the city's largely Black east side, just two streets over and less than a half a mile from where murdered 14-year-old teen Alianna DeFreeze went missing last month.


Both victims were Black.


Devin Price (pictured), 17, died Sunday night at University Hospitals after being shot at about 6:15 pm that day at the school at 3500 East 147th Street near Kinsman Avenue in the Kinsman-Mount Pleasant neighborhood.


Police said Sunday that Price was shot in the stomach and that they have no suspects, the 15th homicide this year, according to the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office.

 

Alianna's body was discovered by police three weeks ago in an abandoned home at the the 9400 block of Fullmer Avenue


She was last seen Jan 26 at the 3400 block of East 149th Street
when she was getting off a Regional Transit Authority bus headed to school, less than six blocks from A. J. Rickoff school.


Sex offender Christopher Whitaker, 44 and of South Euclid, is in custody on a $three million bond in DeFreeze's death and has pleaded not guilty to several charges,  including kidnapping and aggravated murder.


Homicides are on the rise in the majority Black major American city, which is led by three-term Black Mayor Frank Jackson, who, this year, is seeking reelection to an unprecedented fourth term


Cleveland recorded 168 homicides in 2016, the deadliest year in decades, and up 13 percent from 2015, though neighboring suburbs also saw increases, mainly due, like Cleveland, to heroin and opiate overdoses on the rise.


Both Price and DeFreeze, who was allegedly bludgeon to death, were murdered in Ward 2, which is represented by city councilman Zack Reed, a vocal critic of the mayor and a possible mayoral contender for the non-partisan race with a June 29 deadline for submitting nominating petitions.


In addition to Jackson, other high profile contenders that have announced they will run for mayor include Ward 10 Councilman Jeff Johnson, former East Cleveland Mayor Eric Brewer, and Edwins restaurant CEO Brandon Chrostowski, who is White but is gaining momentum among blacks for his hiring of ex-offenders that he says deserve a "second chance."


All 17 city council seats are also up for grabs this year with a Sept 12 non-partisan primary for both mayor and city council and a Nov 7 general election for the two top vote- getters.

CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-CLEVELAND, Ohio-Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael O'Malley, who took office in January after ousting former county prosecutor Tim McGinty in an election last year following out cries against McGinty for his protection of cops that kill Black people and his combativeness and racist demeanor, has fired three assistant county prosecutors who ignored an avalanche of juvenile rape cases under McGinty, also a former longtime common pleas judge.

 

Cuyahoga County, which includes the largely Black major American city of Cleveland, is the largest of 88 counties statewide and is roughly 29 percent Black.

 

Over 70 rape cases dating back to 2014 and during McGinty's first and only four-year term were ignored,  O'Malley said yesterday.

 

Whether the statute of limitations has run on some of the cases is unknown as is the extent to which the prosecutor's office will reopen any of the cases.

 

O'Malley said that assistant county prosecutors, three of whom resigned this week at the news of their upcoming firings, did not track the cases and, thus, no charges in the rape cases at issue were ever filed.

 

Meanwhile, McGinty, who is White, worked overtime in prosecuting Black people and others, some illegally and some his political enemies.

 

Community activists and women and children's advocates are outraged.

 

Kathy Wray Coleman, who leads the Cleveland-based Imperial Women Coalition and has led rallies as to Cleveland police murders of Black people and violence against women from the Imperial Avenue Murders by serial killer Anthony Sowell to the rape and kidnapping victims of Seymour Avenue, said McGinty is nothing but a fraud and a vicious and deceitful man, and that the Black community and many women are glad he is gone from office.

 

"Tim McGinty is a racist and sexist fraud who maliciously prosecuted Black people while protecting police from prosecution who erroneously killed Black people and while covering up the rape of our children for his friends and political allies," said Coleman."We call for a comprehensive investigation by the Ohio Attorney General and subsequent criminal charges against Mr. McGinty and others involved,"

 

O'Malley says some of the culprits whose rape cases were ignored had confessed, that the alleged rape victims are as young as three-years-old, and that some 1,900 cases have been arbitrarily classified by the McGinty team as inactive.

 

In short, the new county prosecutor, a Democrat like McGinty and also a former Cleveland city councilman and Parma safety director,  called the controversial activity horrific at best.

 

Former assistant county prosecutor Duane Deskins, now Chief of Prevention and Opportunity for Youth and Young Adults for the city of Cleveland and a member of Mayor Frank Jackson's cabinet, was the head man in charge at the time under McGinty, and the chief of the juvenile division.

 

Deskins has said that his team of assistant county prosecutors did great and "aggressive work."

CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-CLEVELAND, Ohio-Family members, friends, community activists and even strangers came out Saturday afternoon for memorial services for  murdered 14-year-old Clevelander Alianna DeFreeze (pictured).


"There were quite a few community activists there and the services were excellent," said Ada Averyhart, 83, a community activist from the Cleveland based grassroots groups the Carl Stokes Brigade and the Imperial Women Coalition. "The singing was excellent."

 

Activist Art McKoy of Black on Black Crime Inc was in attendance ans said that the killer does not deserve a trial in spite of a constitutional guarantee for such if chosen.

 

"Whoever did this should get the death penalty straight out with no trial."


The  Black girl, whose body was discovered by police two weeks ago in a vacant home at the the 9400 block of Fullmer Avenue on Cleveland's majority Black east side, was last seen Jan 26 at the 3400 block of East 149th Street when she was getting off the RTA bus headed to school.


Hundreds turned out Saturday to say farewell to the teen.

 

Cleveland Ward 2 Councilman Zack Reed was the only elected official there, and rightfully so since the abandoned home where Alianna's body was found sits in his ward.

 

Cleveland Heights is a neighboring middle-class suburb of Cleveland and is roughly 45 percent Black.


Police escorted Alianna’s body from Lucas Funeral Home in Garfield Heights to Imani Temple Ministries in Cleveland Heights for the memorial.


Christopher Whitaker of South Euclid, Ohio, a convicted sex offender who served time in prison for sexual battery, among other convictions, has been charged with aggravated murder in Alianna's death, among other crimes, and is being held on a $3 million bond.


He has pleaded not guilty to the gruesome crime.


Police say that DNA links Whitaker to the crime, but cannot put him with the girl at any point to date, other than allegedly through DNA evidence.


Her family says she did not know him.

CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-CLEVELAND, Ohio-One man was shot dead and four injured after a shooting in a car early Wednesday morning in East  Cleveland out side of Club Dew Drop at the corner of Ivanhoe and Euclid Avenues, a high crime area.


Police were called to the bar shortly after 12 am Wednesday morning with neighbors reporting they allegedly hear some 30 gunshots.


All five of the shooting victims are Black and police say they have no suspects but are questioning witnesses, including a woman they stopped who was driving a red camaro.


Of the four who were injured three were flown to a nearby hospital by helicopter and are in critical condition.


"The motive either at this point is gang related or there was an immediate altercation that happened in the parking lot," a spokesman for the East Cleveland Police Department said.


The Cuyahoga County medical examiners office has not released the identity of the victims though police are searching for three suspects, Marvin Christopher Bryant, 19; DeAundre Smith, 19; and Tony Ricks, 21.


All three are Black.


East Cleveland is an impoverished suburb of Cleveland. It is roughly 99 percent Black and has a population of some 17, 000 people.

Congresswoman Marcia Fudge introduces bipartisan food bill designed to futher ease fears of restaurants, retailers, and manufactures that donate food to the needy....Fudge leads Ohio's largely Black 11th congressional district, which includes Cleveland

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Reps. Marcia L. Fudge (OH-11), a Warrenville Heights Democrat who represents Ohio's largely Black 11th congressional district, which includes the city of Cleveland, Dan Newhouse (WA-4), Chellie Pingree (ME-1) and James P. McGovern (MA-2) on Tuesday introduced The Food Donation Act of 2017.

 

The bill, which needs approval by congress to become law, clarifies and enhances coverage underThe Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act (Emerson Act), which promotes food donation by protecting food donors and food recovery organizations.

 

In essence, it extends protections to manufactures, retailers and restaurants that want to donate food to the needed but worry about liability issues.

 

Cleveland has a ppverty rate of roughly 40 percent, U.S. Census reports reveal, and ranks 11th nationwide among cities with 65,000 or more residents.

 

Neraby Detroit, also a largely Black major American city, exceeds Cleveland with a poverty rate of 42 percent.

 

The statewide poverty rate in Ohio is 16 percent,  while the national poverty rate is at 14 percent.

 

“Food insecurity is an urgent problem in our nation, but there are businesses and organizations trying to help.” said Congresswoman Fudge, who has a host of constituents that live below the poverty line. “The Food Donation Act supports them by increasing liability protections and creating new ways to donate while eliminating food waste."

 

Fudge said that the "bill goes a long way in helping to feed families in need.”

 

Rep Newhouse agrees.

 

“The law should never discourage people from taking action to help their neighbor,” said Congressman Newhouse. “The Food Donation Act will provide clarity and protections to farmers, retailers, and non-profits seeking in good faith to assist the hungry."

 

The federal lawmakers say their proposed reforms will reduce waste and save perfectly good food that could be used to help people.

 

"Fifty million Americans don’t have enough to eat, but I am hopeful that innovative donation models can get more healthy, safe food to hungry people. said Congresswoman Pingree. "This legislation takes common-sense and overdue steps to address food insecurity. By easing liability fears, businesses will be able to donate more food that is safe and perfectly good to eat.”


Congressman McGovern, a ranking member on the House Agriculture Nutrition Subcommittee said “America is the richest country in the world, but 40 percent of the food we produce goes uneaten. "

 

"This is astounding," said McGovern, a Republican like Newhouse among the Democrats of Fudge and Pingree. "We must work harder to stop this waste and make sure this perfectly good food is put to good use by helping to feed the millions of American families who struggle with hunger every year,"

 

McGovern said that "I’m proud to join my friends Marcia Fudge, Chellie Pingree, and Dan Newhouse in this bipartisan effort to update and strengthen the Emerson Good Samaritan Act, and look forward to working with my colleagues on the Agriculture Committee to make further progress on reducing food waste during consideration of the 2018 Farm Bill.”

 

Nationwide, food insecurity, or the percentage of households who are uncertain they are able acquire enough food,  is 13.7 percent.  At 16.1 percent, Ohio ranks 6th in food insecurity. As a Member of the House Committee on Agriculture Nutrition Subcommittee, Congresswoman Fudge is committed to alleviating food insecurity and increasing access to fresh, affordable, healthy foods.
