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.

By Kathy Wray Coleman, editor-in-chief


CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-CLEVELAND, Ohio-Ohio 11th Congressional District Congresswoman Marcia L. Fudge, a Warrensville Heights Democrat whose largely Black congressional district includes the city of Cleveland and several of its eastern suburbs, on Friday released a statement to Cleveland Urban News.Com on the tragic murder of 14-year-old Alianna DeFreeze of Cleveland.


"I send my sincere condolences to the family of Alianna DeFreeze," said Fudge, who is Black. "The loss of a child is extremely difficult, especially when details surrounding her death are so uncertain."

 

The  Black girl, whose body was discovered Sunday evening by police in a vacant home at the the 9400 block of Fullmer Avenue on the city's majority Black east side, was last seen at the 3400 block of East 149th Street last Thursday morning as she was getting off the RTA bus headed to school.


The teen never arrived at school last Thursday, and her family, notified some 10 hours later, subsequently filed a missing person's report.


Her body was identified by the Cuyahoga County medical examiner's office through dental records.

 

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, among other crimes, and was arraigned Saturday morning and held on a $3 million bond.


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.


And though Whitaker has pleaded not guilty, Cleveland police Chief Calvin Williams, who is Black, and the mainstream media, have publicly deemed him guilty, an ignorant effort, say sources, to minimize the unrest relative to the gruesome killing, and several other unsolved murders of Black females in Cleveland since 2012.


Some community members, led by longtime greater Cleveland activist Art McKoy, even held a vigil Saturday afternoon to compliment police for bringing Whitaker, who is Black, "to justice."


And this is though Whitaker was just arraigned on Saturday and, by no means, has been brought to justice.

 

Rep. Fudge, also a former Warrensville Heights mayor and a prior national president of the Black sorority Delta Sigma Theta Inc,  is a licensed attorney, and it shows.


She said Friday, though indirectly, that people should not hastily jump to conclusions about Whitaker's innocence or guilt and that she prays for closure.


And while she did not name police specifically, the federal lawmaker did thank those working to solve the case.


She called for peace in the largely Black major American city where Black on Black crime has escalated in recent years, as has erroneous police murders of Black people, including 12-year-old Tamir Rice, Malissa Williams, Timothy Russell, Brandon Jones, Tanisha Anderson and rapper Kenneth Smith.


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.


"As a community we must do all we can to work together for the safety and security of our children," said Fudge. "I thank those working to solve unanswered questions surrounding Alianna's death, and pray for peace, closure and healing."

 

Alianna is the fifth female found dead since 2012 on the city's east side near East 93rd and Kinsman Avenue that has caught the attention of the community and the media, some four women ranging in ages from 20 to 43-year-old, three Black and one White, whose remains were discovered in various places, at least one in abandoned home, within a two-mile radius beginning at East 93rd Street and Bessemer Avenue and transcending to Harvard Avenue.


Police have no leads relative to the murders of the four East 93rd Street women, namely Jasmine Trotter, 20, Ashley Leszyeski, 21 and White, Jamella Hasan, 37, and Christine Malone 43, who left behind eight grown children.


Local community activists and Cleveland Ward 2 Councilman Zack Reed say a possible serial killer is on the loose as to the unsolved cases of the aforementioned.


If so, it would bring the number of greater Cleveland serial killers in recent years to three, behind Anthony Sowell, who murdered 11 women and raped three other Black women at his since demolished home on Imperial Avenue on the city's east side, and East Cleveland serial killer Michael Madison, who murdered three Black women whose bodies were uncovered in the impoverished Black Cleveland suburb in 2013, four years after the remains of the Imperial Avenue women were pulled from Sowell's home by police.


At a well-attended rally for DeFreeze in Cleveland Wednesday Imperial Women Coalition leader Kathy Wray Coleman, who led the rally in front of the abandoned home where DeFreeze's body was found with activist Khalid Samad of Peace in the Hood, said too many Black women and children are getting murdered in Cleveland and that White women and children who are murdered or raped get far more attention than poor Black women and children, especially from the mainstream media.


Coleman also called for city officials to fully implement the 27 recommendations derived by a three-member mayor appointed committee in conjunction with the Imperial Avenue Murders.


An aunt of DeFreeze spoke at the rally, and said her family is "broken."


Other speakers include east side Cleveland Councilpersons Phyllis Cleveland, Zack Reed, and Jeff Johnson, a candidate for mayor this year who hopes to unseat current three-term Mayor Frank Jackson, Angelique Malone, the daughter of Cleveland East 93rd Street murder victim Christine Malone, and Dannita Carmichael, the daughter of Tonia Carmichael, 52 and one of serial killer Sowell's 11 Black murder victims.


Carmichael lambasted Mayor Jackson and members of Cleveland city council, namely Zack Reed and Ken Johnson, who leads the ward where Sowell did his massacre, saying nothing has changed since her mother was murdered and that police are acting like business as usual, a speech laced with expletives.


Community members supported Carmichael, and said after wards that they understand her pain and are glad that "Black women have become more empowered to speak out on Black women getting murdered in Cleveland and very little being done about it."


As she spoke to the media on Wednesday at the rally, Carmichael stood with family members of several of Sowell's other victims, including  victim Janice Webb's sister, Joanne Moore, also an outspoken critic of Cleveland police, who arrested Sowell in 2008 on a rape complaint to police but released him to later kill the last six of his 11 victims.


Sowell, now 57, was arrested again in 2009 following another police report of rape.

 

This time police, who ignored missing persons reports filed by some of the Imperial Avenue families, took the complaint seriously.


The serial killer, who was convicted by a county jury of his peers in 2011, lost an appeal of his convictions and death sentence last year at the Ohio Supreme Court level and is now seeking relief via federal appeals venues.


While some lawsuits filed by the Imperial Avenue families remain pending in federal district court, others have been dismissed by judges like Federal District Judge Donald Nugent, a former county common pleas judge, and a Democrat who has political ties that some say sometimes influence his judicial decisions, some of them reversed on appeal to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati.

CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-CLEVELAND, Ohio - Protesters will meet today, Feb 3, 2017, at Market Square at Lorain Avenue and  West 25th Street on Cleveland's west side at 4 p.m. and at 4:30 pm will march to City Hall in response to President Trump's temporary travel ban of seven predominantly Muslin countries, which has been deemed by critics as racist, unconstitutional, and religiously insensitive.

Event organizers and sponsors include Cleveland Jobs with Justice, DreamActivist Ohio, Greater Cleveland Immigrant Support Network, CAIR, Peace in the Hood, Interreligious Task Force on Central America and Colombia, Lorain Ohio Immigrant Rights Association, Ohio's Voice and Refugee Services Collaborative.

Debbie Kline of Jobs with Justice told Cleveland Urban News.Com, Ohio's most read digital Black newspaper, that Trump, who says his selective approach is necessary for safety, is irrational at best.


"We are marching because we need to protect the vulnerable and the undocumented immigrants that are the target of Donald Trump," said Kiline, who is White. "The president, to me, is racist and dangerous."

Over a thousand people are expected to attend, according to the Facebook post put up by organizers. For more information, click here.

The march will follow national protests that have arisen over the controversial ban and the president's rhetoric against the Muslim community and other immigrant groups.
