CLEVELAND, URBAN NEWS.COM-Cleveland Ohio-Yesterday marked the second-year anniversary of the Cleveland police killing of Tanisha Anderson, a schizophrenic woman slammed to the pavement in front of the family home on the city's east side the night of Nov 12, 2014, and another Black statistic as to routine police killings of unarmed Black people.


Police officer Scott Aldridge, the cop who allegedly slammed Anderson to the sidewalk, and officer Bryan Meyers had arrested and handcuffed Anderson, 37-years-old at the time of her death, and were allegedly placing her in the back of the patrol car when the tragic incident occurred.


The Cuyahoga County medical examiner has ruled the killing a homicide.


An excessive force and wrongful death lawsuit is pending in federal district court and the office of the Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine is investigating the case for potential criminal charges against the two police officers.


DeWine assumed authority over the criminal investigation following a conflict of interest as to outgoing county prosecutor Tim McGinty, who is often pro-cop and anti-Black, data show. (Editor's note: Kathy Wray Coleman has allegedly been harassed by racist and corrupt White cops in jurisdictions across Cuyahoga County, corrupt judges and prosecutors, and others for her longtime community activism and writings as to women's rights, the theft of homes of Cuyahoga County residents by judges and others, racism and sexism in general, and erroneous police killings of unarmed Black people and others).


The city of Cleveland, a defendant in the lawsuit as are the  affiliated cops, among others, has denied any wrong doing in response to the complaint, though an expert hired by Anderson's family relative to  the civil lawsuit has said in his report that police did, in fact, use excessive force.


The expert, Lou Reiter, a retired deputy chief with the Los Angeles Police Department, said in part that the actions of officers officers Aldridge and Meyers, both still on the job, were "unreasonable and excessive for the circumstances."


Rallies and vigils have been ongoing in support of justice for Anderson and her family, but none were tentatively scheduled for this year.


The initial rally at the home, held on Nov. 22, 2014, 10 days after police killed her, was organized by Cleveland activist Kathy Wray Coleman of the Imperial Women Coalition, with Cleveland NAACP members, other local activists, family members and friends also attending.


"Too many women are getting raped and murdered in Cleveland and elsewhere, and now this," Coleman said at the vigil held in 2014 in front of the Anderson family home. (Editor's note: Kathy Wray Coleman is has alleged been harassed by White police officers in jurisdictions across Cuyahoga County, corrupt judges and prosecutors, and others for her longtime community activism and writings as to women's rights and erroneous police killings of unarmed Black people and others).


"We will get justice," said Joell Anderson, now 42, Tanisha's brother who witnessed the police killing and was a key spokesman at the vigil two years ago.


State Rep Bill Patmon (D-10), a Cleveland Democrat and former city councilman whom Coleman asked to speak, offered condolences at the 2014 gathering to the family and said during his speech that something has to be done about the violence in Cleveland, and that police are no exception.


Activist Bill Swain said that police killings against the Black community are getting out of hand in Cleveland and that Tanisha Anderson is "another statistic."


Other speakers at the vigil include Tanisha Anderson's daughter, aunt and uncles, her sister-in-law, and mother, and activists Dick Perry, now an executive committee member of the Cleveland Chapter NAACP,  and the Rev Pamela Pinkney -Butts.


Other activists there include Don Bryant, Marva Patterson, Genevieve Mitchell, William Clarence Marshall, Black on Black Crime President Al Porter, and Ernest Smith, who leads the East Cleveland activist group the Oppressed People's Nation.


"She was the best person in the world, nobody could match her" said Tanisha Anderson's then 16-year-old daughter and only child Mauvian Green.


According to the family in a previous statement to Cleveland Urban News.Com, Ohio's most read digital Black newspaper, an ambulance was called to the family home on Nov.  12 because Anderson, who was not violent but has a history of mental health problems, was not herself, and was acting out.

Instead, Cleveland police arrested Anderson, even though they had no warrant and no court order to do so.


When Anderson verbally objected to what the family claims was an unlawful arrest, she was allegedly slammed to the sidewalk by police.


Police say Anderson resisted arrest, a claim her attorneys deny.


An ambulance took at least 20 minutes or more to arrive at the scene, the family said.


Reports say the EMS finally arrived at approximately 11:41 pm.

CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-CLEVELAND, Ohio- In a stunning upset that negated national polls and media predictions that favored his opponent, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump won the presidency Tuesday night over Hillary Clinton, the nominee for the Democratic Party.

Clinton did not give a concession speech Tuesday and instead spoke publicly for the first time since her devastating loss on Wednesday morning.

She reportedly called Trump late Tuesday night to congratulate him, a short but cordial call that followed a drooling and viciously aggressive campaign from both sides.

Polls had Clinton winning anywhere from three percentage points to as much as 12 points.

It was a close race.

Flanked by his wife Melania, the new First Lady of the United States, and other family members, Trump told supporters during his victory speech at election headquarters in Manhattan that he will work to bridge the partisan divide.

"I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be president for all Americans, and this is so important to me," said Trump.

The president-elect promised to "work together and unify our great country."

It was a nasty and bitter campaign that will be remembered for its divisiveness, which was highlighted by Clinton's email controversy and Trump's disdain for Muslims, Mexicans, and the immigration community, not to mention his confrontations with women.

Some 12 women accused him of misconduct ranging from unwanted advances to outright groping them, which he dismissed as politically motivated and disingenuous.

At press time Trump, 70, garnered  289 of the 270 electoral votes needed to clinch the presidency to Clinton's 218, and at 6 am EST Wednesday morning he was winning the popular vote too, with a raiser thin 307- vote lead. (Editor's note: Clinton ultimately won the popular vote but still lost the election because Trump persevered and  out did her by winning the electoral college. She said Wednesday during a post election speech where she thanked her family, friends, campaign workers and other supporters that she would not contest the election, and she urged the country to unite behind Trump).

And Trump was instrumental in beating Clinton, 69,  in key battleground states, including North Carolina, Iowa, Florida and Ohio, a win with 52 percent of the vote that brought 18 electoral votes, and that set the stage for Clinton's ultimate defeat.

No Republican of remembrance has lost Ohio and won the presidency, and the last Democrat to do so was John F. Kennedy in 1965.

Unlike his predecessor nominees of Mitt Romney and Arizona Sen John McCain, both of whom lost to Obama, Trump campaigned heavily in the Buckeye state, and he courted the Black vote, to some degree.

He effectively won the support of a few Black suburban preachers in the delegate rich  majority Black 11th congressional district, which includes Cleveland, and that of the Call and Post, a weekly Black newspaper with distributions in the Ohio cities of Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati that is owned and published by international boxing promoter Don King.

A Republican who backed Obama in 2008 and for reelection in 2012, King knew Trump through boxing ventures at Trump's Las Vegas hotels, and he readily endorsed him.

Led by Clinton ally Rep. Marcia L. Fudge, one of two Blacks in Congress from Ohio, Trump did lose in the 11th congressional district and in its Cuyahoga County, which is 29 percent Black.

But he drew on lower middle and working class Whites in the state, White men in general, and voters who had tired of Washington politics, and the status quo.

On the campaign trail, Trump promised to end Obamacare, a federal law, and said he would address terrorism, and would push a Supreme Court justice with a conservative thrust to replace Antonin Scalia.

Among a host of other initiatives, he pledged  to strengthen immigration laws, expand educational choice, and revise NAFTA.

Clinton, a two time loser who lost the Democratic nomination to Obama in 2008 and to Trump on Tuesday, would not criticize Obamacare other than to say it needs critiquing, a posture which may have been her undoing.

And she embraced Obama's policies, and said she would continue his legacy.

She said that if she were elected she would choose a liberal Supreme Court justice. She promoted Planned Parenthood, is pro- choice, and unlike Trump, wanted a tax hike on the rich and a tax break for poor and middle class Americans.

Her policies simply did not gel with voters, not enough, in fact, to elevate her to the presidency as the first woman who would have held the prestigious and powerful post.

Gerald Henley,  a former Cleveland School Board member and Trump supporter, told Cleveland Urban News.Com that voters are smarter than they get credit for,  and can glean through a biased and slanted mainstream media that mistreated Trump and "has crippled this country's communication process."

Henley said that Trump "was not your average nickle and dime politician and he appealed to people, Black White, Hispanic and other, that want systemic change in Washington."

Likely the most startling political upset in U.S. history, Trump said weeks before his unprecedented win that mainstream media outlets were corrupt in predicting his demise and that had he lost it would have been the result of a "rigged election."

Blacks and the Muslim and Hispanic communities as a whole are not Trump's friends, even if some were Luke-warm to Clinton, some Blacks still reeling from former president Bill Clinton's crime bill that has disproportionately impacted Black America.

Hispanics were not as hostile as expected, Trump matching Mitt Romney in overall voter support from an ethic group that he repeatedly insulted.

Blacks that rallied to President Obama, a two-term president and the nations' first Black president, simply did not rally to Clinton, some even voting for Trump.

Black voters in general came through for the former first lady and former U.S. senator representing New York.

But enthusiasm was moderate at best, data show, Clinton under-performing among Blacks at roughly six points less that Obama.

Clinton, some said, took the Black community for granted, and should have campaigned more heavily in urban communities.

She did, however, win minority women and college educated White women as predicted.

In comparison, working class White women chose Trump in large numbers, as did a large percentage of poor White women, political pundits said.

Early voting was a factor with roughly 47 million people voting early nationwide and some 8.5 million in Ohio alone.

By Kathy Wray Coleman, editor-in-chief

 

Editor's note: All of the following have essentially won unofficially, though Hillary Clinton lost Ohio and the presidency to Donald Trump and Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas Judge John O'Donnell is trailing state appellate court judge Pat Fischer for a seat on the Ohio Supreme Court by some 24, 000 votes His lost is in part, a by-product of his fallout with the Black community and Black elected officials for acquitting a since fired White Cleveland cop of manslaughter charges that gunned down two unarmed Blacks in 2012.

 

 

CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-CLEVELAND, Ohio-With some 98 percent of the vote counted, unofficial Nov 8 election night results of the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections in close races and some others being closely watched reveal that Hillary Clinton is beating Donald Trump for president in the heavily Democratic county, the largest of Ohio's 88 counties. She, however, is losing Ohio, and the presidency.

 

Republican Matt Dolan is winning for state representative in District 24 over Democrat Emily Hagan and Republican Dave Greenspan, a Cuyahoga County Councilman, is winning for state representative over Tommy Greene in District 16.

 

Democrat state representatives Kent Smith, Janine Boyd and Stephanie Howse are also winning and Meryl Tolbert Johnson, a retired Cleveland schools teacher, is winning heavily for the State Board of Education.

 

Democratic Common Pleas Judge John O'Donnell is winning over Republican state appeals Court Judge Pat Fischer in his home county for a seat on the Ohio Supreme Court but is trailing statewide.

 

For other hotly contested races for some open seats on the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas, which hears felony and other cases, Democrat Sherrie Miday is beating sitting Republican Common Pleas Judge Matthew and sitting Republican Common Pleas Judge Joan Synenberg is beating Andrea Nelson Moore, who is Black and backed by 11th Congressional District Congresswoman Marcia L. Fudge, a Clinton ally who is Black like More and  is winning reelection with ease.

 

Democrat Tonya Jones, who will be the lone Black on the court, is winning over Republican Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Janet Rath Colaluca for a Domestic Relations Court in Cuyahoga County as are sitting Democratic judge Diane Palos over Donna Coury and sitting Democratic judge Frankie Goldberg over Republican John Mayer,

 

The Cleveland schools tax levy renewal is winning with widespread support while the city income tax increase, the first request to voters since 1981, is barely winning.

CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM, CLEVELAND, Ohio- The investigation relative to a  Black man jailed in the Cuyahoga County Jail in Cleveland, Ohio following a traffic stop arrest who was found dead in his cell last month is ongoing, authorities said yesterday, (Editor's note: Community activists had picketed the county jail at least three times since August of 2016 to call attention to illegal jail activity, including the alleged abuse of inmates, the holding of inmates even after bail bonds were paid, malicious prosecutions spearheaded by outgoing county prosecutor Tim McGinty, and the mass incarceration of Black people).


Jail officers reportedly found Kalvin O. Berry, 39,  dead or unresponsive in his cell on Monday morning, Oct. 17, a city spokesperson said.


He was subsequently rushed to nearby Lutheran Hospital and was pronounced dead at 10:30 pm the same day, according to the county medical examiner.


Cleveland Municipal Court records reveal that Berry was arrested at 2:25 am on Superior Avenue at East 85th Street on Oct. 17 after police stopped him in his 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier for allegedly speeding.


A police ticket says Berry driver's license  expired in 2015 and that he allegedly drove away from the traffic stop.


In spite of a city policy enacted relative to police killings of unarmed Blacks that car chases should only occur if a felony is suspected, police chased Berry's car anyway. He was ultimately charged with reckless operation, driving on a suspended license and fleeing and alluding, all misdemeanors.


Why Berry, who had a lengthy criminal history, his latest a conviction in 2015 for felony domestic violence, was jailed in the county rather than the Cleveland jail, given that he faced only misdemeanor charges, is unclear.


(Editor's note: The city policy that limits police chases to suspected felony behavior was put in place following the 2012 Cleveland police killings of unarmed Blacks Malissa Williams and Timothy Russell that followed a high speed car chase from downtown Cleveland to neighboring East Cleveland. The two victims were gunned down by 13 non-Black Cleveland cops who were slinging 137 bullets. Only one police officer at issue was indicted, former officer Michael Brelo, and he was acquitted of manslaughter charges in 2015 by Common Pleas Judge John O'Donnell, now a Democratic candidate for the Ohio Supreme Court. O'Donnell, data show, has stolen a wealth of homes from Cuyahoga County residents for JPMorgan Chase Bank and other banks and mortgage companies via illegal foreclosures and sheriff's sales, common pleas court records reveal)


The Black community of greater Cleveland, including a wealth of Black elected officials, the Call and Post Newspaper, and the Black Women's Political Action Committee, has shunned O'Donnell for an endorsement for the state's high court, some of its members, most of them Democrats, going so far as to endorse his opponent, GOP Ohio Supreme Court candidate Pat Fisher, a state appellate court judge.
