This is how Title 37 authorized the health director to protect first responders from being infected. No law authorized Governor Richard Michael DeWine to give first responders the names of infected Ohioans.

Ohio’s 1953 laws ordered lawbreaking Acton to place signs on homes of CoVid infected

CLEVELAND, OH – The General Assembly of Ohio enacted 26 laws in 1953 that instructed the state’s director of health and local health boards how to handle epidemics and pandemics.   A keyword search of the Ohio Revised Code for Dr. Amy Acton’s “social distancing” and “shelter in place” terms show no results.  The two terms are made up and exist outside any of the epidemic and pandemic-mitigating instructions lawmakers authorized health directors and health boards to take to save lives.

Title 37 of Ohio’s revised code is where the state’s health and pandemic laws are found and from her actions it’s obvious neither Acton nor Governor Richard Michael DeWine has read them.  If they did the state’s general laws were ignored by the two oath-adminstered elected and appointed public officials.

First responders would know if an Ohioan was infected with CoV if Governor Richard Michael DeWine and Dr. Amy Acton placed placards on their homes as required by law. Giving the names of infected Ohioans to first responders is not an act authorized anywhere in Title 37. It’s just some more shit DeWine and Acton are criminally making up to obstruct the state’s existing laws.

Specifically, Title 3707.08 instructed Acton to quarantine infected Ohioans away from the healthy in dealing with the current pandemic.  The section exists under the heading, “Isolation of persons exposed to communicable disease – placarding of premises.”  It’s also written in plain and unambigous English that needed no interpretation.

“When a person known to have been exposed to a communicable disease declared quarantinable by the board of health of a city or general health district or the department of health is reported within its jurisdiction, the board shall at once restrict such person to his place of residence or other suitable place, prohibit entrance to or exit from such place without the board’s written permission in such manner as to prevent effective contact with individuals not so exposed, and enforce such restrictive measures as are prescribed by the department.

When a person has, or is suspected of having, a communicable disease for which isolation is required by the board or the department, the board shall at once cause such person to be separated from susceptible persons in such places and under such circumstances as will prevent the conveyance of the infectious agents to susceptible persons, prohibit entrance to or exit from such places without the board’s written permission, and enforce such restrictive measures as are prescribed by the department.

When persons have, or are exposed to, a communicable disease for which placarding of premises is required by the board or the department the board shall at once place in a conspicuous position on the premises where such a person is isolated or quarantined a placard having printed on it, in large letters, the name of the disease. No person shall remove, mar, deface, or destroy such placard, which shall remain in place until after the persons restricted have been released from isolation or quarantine.

Physicians attending a person affected with a communicable disease shall use such precautionary measures to prevent its spread as are required by the board or the department.

No person isolated or quarantined by a board shall leave the premises to which he has been restricted without the written permission of such board until released from isolation or quarantine by it in accordance with the rules and regulations of the department.”

Had DeWine instructed Acton to obey R.C. 3707.08 he would have directed her to the other sections of Title 37 which instructed her how to maintain the quarantine medically in their homes and to financially-compensate them for their “individual” losses.  That’s even if their homes had to be demolished to ensure non-transmission. 

There is no law in Title 37 that authorized Acton to cancel an election and close businesses.  Social distancing is a made up term connected to socially distant homeless people.  Acton’s early years with her brother as a child in Mahoning County was with her chronically homeless, mentally ill and abusive mother.  The Columbus Dispatch reported how they once lived in a tent in a Mahoning county park during the winter.  Schizophrenia and delusional thinking are byproducts of a child raised homeless according to reports published on the National Center for Biological Information’s database.

The men who enacted Ohio’s pandemic laws were adults in 1918 when the Spanish Flu killed more than 200,000 inhabitants of the United States of America.  Those like former Cleveland mayor and Ohio Governor Frank Lausche were born in 1888.  Title 3707.08 was signed into law by him in 1953 and it hasn’t changed. 

Neither Acton nor DeWine are authorized in Article 1.18 of Ohio’s constitution to “suspend” the state’s general laws.  Failing to enforce or ignoring them is a “duty-exceeding” criminal act of suspension and identified as “dereliction of duty” pursuant to Section 2921.44(D) of Ohio’s revised code.

As Ohio’s former Attorney General, twice, DeWine even as a currently unlicensed attorney should have instructed Acton to read and master all of Title 37 before she criminally ignored it to order the state’s residents to shelter in place and socially distance.  Ohio laws required DeWine to ensure that Acton quarantined CoV-infected Ohioans to their homes.  Not create a panic to shut down businesses in cities throughout the state that has now killed Ohio’s economy.

What DeWine and Acton appear to be doing is protecting the privacy of a few sick Ohioans with Middle East connections they should have prevented from spreading a virus to others that the World Health Organization (WHO) reported last December as being imported to the U.S. from the Middle East.  It was also imported to China where Central China’s most populated city of Wuhan has been hit hard.

Cuyahoga County’s first infected residents were three Russian Jews who traveled to the Middle East.  The county’s health officials also identified six Russian Jewish Hawken Upper School students of Gates Mills who had traveled to Washington, D.C. to attend a conference of the international American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference on March 1 -3, 2020. There they co-mingled with MERS -nfected Israelis.  There are no federal laws giving any citizen “dual citizenship” with the U.S.

According to the WHO the current coronavirus was transmitted to humans from camels that are indigenous to nations like Israel, Iraq, Iran, India, Pakistan and the Middle Eastern countries in Africa like Egypt.  The U.S. Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, Georgia has confirmed the camel to human connection to MERS or the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome that’s now being spread to Americans who stay within the nation’s borders and never travel outside them. 

People interacting with camels during their foreign travels are transmitting that animal’s viruses to Americans who don’t.  Acton and DeWine’s job was to identify them to Ohioans who were not infected; and to place placards on their homes that came with a warning.  These infected individuals , alone, were required by law to be restricted to their places of residences.

What Acton and county health officials like Cuyahoga’s Terry Allan authorized them to do was “self-quarantine.”  The term “self-quarantine” is another duty-exceeding suspension of the state’s “quarantine” laws as a search shows that it, like social distancing and shelter-in-place, are non-existent and unauthorized by law.

Eric Jonathan Brewer

Cleveland's most influential journalist and East Cleveland's most successful mayor is an East Saint Louis, Illinois native whose father led the city's petition drive in 1969 to elect the first black mayor in 1971. Eric is an old-school investigative reporter whose 40-year body of editorial work has been demonstrably effective. No local journalist is feared or respected more.

Trained in newspaper publishing by the legendary Call & Post Publisher William Otis Walker in 1978 when it was the nation's 5th largest Black-owned publication, Eric has published and edited 13 local, regional and statewide publications across Ohio. Adding to his publishing and reporting resume is Eric's career in government. Eric served as the city's highest paid part-time Special Assistant to ex-Cleveland Mayor Michael R. White. He served as Chief of Staff to ex-East Cleveland Mayor Emmanuel Onunwor; and Chief of Communications to the late George James in his capacity as the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority's first Black executive director. Eric was appointed to serve as a member of the state's Financial Planning & Supervision Commission to guide the East Cleveland school district out of fiscal emergency and $20 million deficit. Former U.S. HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson told Eric in his D.C. office he was the only mayor in the nation simultaneously-managing a municipal block grant program. Eric wrote the city's $2.2 million Neighborhood Stabilization Program grant application. A HUD Inspector General audit of his management of the block grant program resulted in "zero" audit findings.

As a newspaper publisher, Eric has used his insider's detailed knowledge of government and his publications to lead the FBI and state prosecutors to investigations that resulted in criminal prosecutions of well-known elected officials in Ohio; and have helped realign Cleveland's political landscape with the defeat of candidates and issues he's exposed. Eric's stories led to the indictments of the late Governor George Voinovich's brother, Paul Voinovich of the V Group, and four associates. He asked the FBI to investigate the mayor he'd served as chief of staff for public corruption; and testified in three federal trials for the prosecution. He forced former Cuyahoga County Coroner Dr. Elizabeth Balraj to admit her investigations of police killings were fraudulent; and to issue notices to local police that her investigators would control police killing investigations. Eric's current work has resulted in Cuyahoga County Judge John Russo accepting the criminal complaint he guided an activist to file against 24 civil rights-violating police officers in the city he once led for operating without valid peace officer credentials. USA Today reporters picked up on Eric's police credentials reporting from his social media page and made it national.

Eric is the author of of his first book, "Fight Police License Plate Spying," which examines the FBI and local police misuse of the National Crime Information Center criminal records history database. An accomplished trumpet player and singer whose friendship with Duke Fakir of the Four Tops resulted in his singing the show's closing song, "Can't Help Myself": Curtis Sliwa of New York's Guardian Angels counts Eric among his founding chapter leaders from the early 1980's role as an Ohio organizer of over 300 volunteer crime fighters in Cleveland, Columbus and Youngstown, Ohio. For his work as a young man Eric was recognized by Cleveland's Urban League as it's 1983 Young Man of the Year.

Known in Cleveland for his encyclopedic knowledge of government and history, and intimately-connected with the region's players, every local major media outlet in Cleveland has picked up on one of Eric's stories since 1979. There is no mainstream newspaper, television or radio outlet in Cleveland that does not include an interview with Eric Jonathan Brewer in its archives over the past 40 years.
