CLEVELAND, OH – Informants are not authorized to commit criminal acts. Period. No police officer has the legal authority to simply kidnap a citizen off the streets and force them to commit life threatening criminal acts like James Skernivitz and the organized crime gang he was involved in are accused of doing that cost American Scott Dingess his life. If dying “in the line of duty” makes one a hero then the only hero is Skernivitz’s American kidnap victim.
I’ve got current and retired sources inside the Cleveland Division of Police sharing information with me about the deaths at W. 65th and Storer on September 3, 2020. My first piece on the laws guiding the use of informant’s was “on point” as some sources described it. Said one, “Cleveland doesn’t have confidential files on informants they’re using like they did Dingess because we didn’t when I worked there.”
There was a lot of initial confusion about the deaths of civilians Skernivitz and Scott Dingess because of the Nick Sabo suicide within hours. Skernivitz was a civilian law enforcement officer employed with the municipal corporation of Cleveland. So was Sabo. The two civilian law enforcement officers had once worked in the same district, but there was nothing connecting the shooting deaths on W. 65th Street to Sabo’s North Ridgeville suicide.
An early story was that Sabo was Skernivitz’s partner and the civilian cops wanted to know why he let him down. It wasn’t true. There is nothing connecting the Skernivitz-Dingess massacre shooting to Sabo’s suicide. Sabo was assigned to the 4th District. The shooting occured in the 2nd District.
The story now is that an 18-year-old teenager and his accomplices were going to “buy a rock” of crack from a seller they intended to rob. [David McDaniel’s mother says he thought he was meeting someone to buy marijuana in a city where under 200 grams is not a criminal offense.] They thought Skernivitz and Dingess were the sellers. The trio of teenagers had no idea Skernivitz was supposed to be attaching a wire to Dingess for the illegal “buy – bust” a team of cops nearby had planned.
A “buy-bust” is a legally unauthorized “overtime-generating” scheme civilian cops engage in to boost their highest three payroll and pension earnings. They kidnap a citizen. Cut them a secret deal no law authorizes them to even offer since their duty is to obey and enforce all criminal laws. They then coerce the citizen into committing a crime for them that carries a risk to their life. That person’s involvement leaves them to the streets and revenge for the set-up. It’s organized crime and not law enforcement. Every drug seller I know has a story about cops taking their cash and letting them go.
What exactly triggered the W. 65th shooting has not yet been shared with me. It wasn’t shared with me if the trio of teens “intended” to do anything more than rob the seller or if the robbery claim is one cops made up and isn’t true. Skernivitz was supposed to be attaching the “wire” when communications were cut off. That’s what a reliable source has shared. McDaniel’s mother saying all they wanted was “weed” throws a different perspective than the one cops are offering.
If Cleveland cops with Skernivitz’s Soviet ethnic backgrounds kidnapped Dingess off the streets to wear a wire while he committed a criminal act for them, they were doing so in violation of the federal criminal laws Section 737.11 of the Revised Code of Ohio instructed them to “obey” first before they ever thought about enforcing them.
They were engaged in a “color of law” conspiracy to violate his constitutional rights pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 241 and 242; and the evasive answers to questions and refusal to release of public records now taking place is the continuation of that conspiracy with the help of the U.S. Attorney General’s office under U.S. Attorney Justin Herdman. U.S. Attorney General William Barr, the Operation Legend director who accepted Skernivitz as a member the day before he kidnapped Dingess, is Herdman’s boss.
There is no “if” Dingess’ was forced to commit a crime for the Cleveland division of police as an informant. Federal law requires there to be a series of documents which leads to one “witnessed” document that identifies his signature as affirming his participation is “voluntary.” That “series of documents” does not exist on any American citizen Cleveland police have “ever” kidnapped, coerced and forced into commiting “life threatening” crimes for them. That’s what I was told by a former detective.
No judge or prosecutor should have ever presented or presided over a case without validating that the cop’s use of an informant during a trial was “authorized by law.” The disgrace is in the “defense” attorneys who argue “case law” instead of the very specific constitutional, federal, state and local laws and administrative regulations, rules, advisories and opinions that guide every elected and appointed official’s conduct. It’s also the ego-maniacal judges who get so caught up in their slew of “statutorily unsupported” opinions they forget the basic rule of “law” is “statutory construction.” No statute. No law. No opinion. An opinion of a law can only be based on the law.
An example of this dereliction to reading is in Judge Karen Nelson-Moore of the 6th Circuit court of appeals opposition to a majority opinion on a federal case involving the NCIC database. She ripped every judge in the nation who had offered a “no reasonable expectation of privacy behind a publicly-displayed license plate” for not reading federal laws that made the information stored behind the number privacy protected. She was blown away that no judge had ever read the U.S. Code and U.S. Code of Federal Regulations clear instructions that their “opinion” of the laws they hadn’t read was wrong. Curve-grading in this nations K-12 schools and universities is a dumbing down bitch.
For every cop operating without valid Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy credentials there’s a judge who presided over an “oathed” trial and didn’t assign his or her bailiff or magistrate to check. None who’s heard a trial attorney Willa Hemmons presided over bothered to learn that she had no contract council had enacted with the city of East Cleveland; and was never administered an oath of office to discharge the duties of that municipal corporation’s director of law. That includes U.S. District Judge James Gwin.
The level of non-reading ignorance in this town is sickening. Had he validated her lack of credentials Gwin could have scheduled U.S. Marshals to arrest her in court for impersonating a law enforcement officer as the “first” offense instead of listening to her ridiculous trial arguments.
And it’s the same for the use of informants. Any judge who has accepted an informant’s testimony without validating that the law enforcement officers who used them did not commit a kidnapping is a co-conspiring official who has failed to defend the kidnapped citizen’s Constitutional rights. Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 4 judges are the officials who a person with knowledge of a felony has a duty to report. Every judge should have been demanding that prosecutors using informants as witnesses produced the confidential informant’s file that is required in federal laws to learn if their participation was vetted and voluntary.
If Cleveland municipal court and Cuyahoga county court of common pleas and appeals judges are letting felony crimes occur against citizens in their courts, and are refusing to report them for prosecution, then no American citizen’s rights are being protected in a criminal justice system that can only be viewed in its most insidious, fascist and Soviet-Communist inspired light.
Nothing about a government of local public officials who allowed Dingess to be kidnapped by “law enforcement officers” and used to death to commit crimes is American. The fact the media is going along with the portrayal of Dingess’ armed kidnapper as a hero illuminates the effect of non-reading journalists who repeat only what they’re “told.”
Williams should know R.C. 737.11 by now, but only if he’s been reading what I’ve written about his rampant violations of the state general law over the past 6 years. It’s not a requirement of the Ohio Peace Officer Training Council that municipal police officers be taught their statutory duties.
Williams’ presiding over so much police misconduct shows he’s been ignoring the “obedience” of all criminal laws parts of it in discharging the duties of a police chief in R.C. 737.06.. If you don’t read you can’t lead … Calvin. You, too, Frank. Keep reading. Class is in session. This is to all you “curve-graded” mayoral wannabes, too.
737.11 General duties of police and fire departments. The police force of a municipal corporation shall preserve the peace, protect persons and property, and obey and enforce all ordinances of the legislative authority of the municipal corporation, all criminal laws of the state and the United States, all court orders issued and consent agreements approved pursuant to sections 2919.26 and 3113.31 of the Revised Code, all protection orders issued pursuant to section 2903.213 or 2903.214 of the Revised Code, and protection orders issued by courts of another state, as defined in section 2919.27 of the Revised Code. The fire department shall protect the lives and property of the people in case of fire. Both the police and fire departments shall perform any other duties that are provided by ordinance. The police and fire departments in every city shall be maintained under the civil service system.
A chief or officer of a police force of a municipal corporation may participate, as the director of an organized crime task force established under section 177.02 of the Revised Code or as a member of the investigatory staff of such a task force, in an investigation of organized criminal activity in any county or counties in this state under sections 177.01 to 177.03 of the Revised Code.
Federal criminal laws govern the use of American citizens as informants and none of the “official” acts Skernivitz and the undercover Cleveland detectives working under Jackson as Cleveland’s chief law enforcement officer [R.C. 2901.01(A)(11)(c)], and Williams as the chief of police [R.C. 737.06], obeyed them in their interactions with Dingess.
The governing federal laws are sections 509, 510 and 533 in Title 28 of the United States Code. Instructions for use of informants are identified in the U.S. DOJ manual headlined “THE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S GUIDELINES REGARDING THE USE OF CONFIDENTIAL INFORMANTS.” It was authorized under John Ashcroft as President George W. Bush’s U.S. Attorney General in 2003.
In order to conduct the “organized crime” investigation Cleveland cops were engaged in required a complaint in writing to the Ohio Attorney General pursuant to R.C. 737.11. The language of the law is in plain English and gives police the authority to conduct “organized crime” investigations instead of “undercover investigations.”
It gives the “chief” or a “cop” the authority for investigations with “official oversight.” Not this kidnapping shit Skernivitz did. The use of the term “undercover investigation” is one cops made up to avoid obeying R.C. 737.11’s instructions to conduct only “organized crime” investigations in the manne authorized by law.
This is answer to a retired police officer’s “then what are we supposed to do?” question. The real answer is “read and master the laws” that spells out the duties of law enforcement officers and follow the plain English language written instructions.
The use of the word “may” means it is an instruction from either a federal, state or local “legislative authority” giving the official the “option” of discharging a duty that is not mandatory. It means U.S. Secretary of HUD Alphonso Jackson, a brilliant American Negro, shared the nuances of this insight with me during the meeting he invited me to in his office.
Brother Jackson told me I was the only mayor in the nation simultaneously and successfully managing a community development department. Zero audit findings after a HUD Inspector General special audit. Reading … Calvin. You, too, Frank and council. It’s fundamental.
“A chief or officer of a police force of a municipal corporation may participate, as the director of an organized crime task force established under section 177.02 of the Revised Code or as a member of the investigatory staff of such a task force, in an investigation of organized criminal activity in any county or counties in this state under sections 177.01 to 177.03 of the Revised Code.”
R.C. 177.01 establishes an “organized crime commission” that’s supposed to guide every “organized crime” investigation like the one Cleveland cops conducted. But R.C. 177.02, I know Cleveland cops didn’t follow, requires them to “write” out the nature of the complaint and forward it to the Organized Crime Comission to determine if an investigation should be conducted; and how it will be conducted. Williams or the cop who authored the complaint can serve as the organized crime and not “undercover drug buy” task force’s “director.”
We should have followed R.C. 177.01 to 177.03 with the organized crime investigation of the sale of narcotics out of the Superfly Barbershop when I ordered it. My father had been a long time customer and witnessed transactions. So had other members of my family. I told Dad not to go back and ordered Ralph Spotts to start an investigation.
Once I realized our statutory mistake I expressed my thoughts to Almeta; but my term was nearly over. I don’t recall how then prosecuting attorney William Mason kicked Art McKoy out of the prosecution, but the absence of a complaint filed with the state attorney general’s organized crime commission should have been the disqualifier.
I had shared with Almeta before I left that she should correct what we’d done wrong. I didn’t agree with Art letting drugs be sold out of his place; but I wasn’t violating his constitutional rights to prove it. Both our American Negro ancestors suffered from that sick mayor, cop, prosecutor, judge “conspiracy against our people” bullshit in this nation. I wasn’t perpetuating it. It ain’t how I roll.
Authority from the “organized crime commission” was needed before the Superfly investigation could proceed. I felt reversing my actions rather than moving forward would mitigate what I knew was a violation of Art’s constitutional rights. I didn’t give a fuck about the “stolen pictures” he helped thief Gary Norton disseminate.
“177.02 Complaint that alleges that organized criminal activity has occurred in county. (A) Any person may file with the organized crime investigations commission a complaint that alleges that organized criminal activity has occurred in a county. A person who files a complaint under this division also may file with the commission information relative to the complaint. (B) Upon the filing of a complaint under division (A) of this section or upon its own initiative, the commission may establish an organized crime task force to investigate organized criminal activity in a single county or in two or more counties if it determines, based upon the complaint filed and the information relative to it or based upon any information that it may have received, that there is reason to believe that organized criminal activity has occurred and continues to occur in that county or in each of those counties. The commission shall not establish an organized crime task force to investigate organized criminal activity in any single county unless it makes the determination required under this division relative to that county and shall not establish an organized crime task force to investigate organized criminal activity in two or more counties unless it makes the determination required under this division relative to each of those counties. The commission, at any time, may terminate an organized crime task force it has established under this section.”
As a former Special Assistant to former Cleveland Mayor Michael R. White, and as East Cleveland’s mayor and director of public safety, and as ex-East Cleveland Mayor Emmanuel Onunwor’s chief of staff, I know the “inside” stories and disciplinary records of police paint a different portrait about their so-called “courage” that isn’t covered in the media.
Cops are not the heroes they portray themselves as when bullets are flying. All that “soldier” and militlary rank bullshit don’t mean nothing.. That they’re cops and we’re civilians shit goes out the door when the bullets are flying. They thought I was crazy leading 300 volunteer Guardian Angels into the state’s worst neighborhoods without weapons. The only “hero” on W. 65th Street was the unarmed and kidnapped Dingess who was obeying his captor’s unlawful demands on his constitutional rights and freedoms as an American citizen.
Cops are civilians when the bullets are flying. “I got to get home to my family. This ain’t nothing but a job.” Soldiers can’t walk way. Soldiers also don’t have unions, get overtime and go on strike. I’ve seen cops cry in my office like little bitches. Oops. Sorry Calvin. I forget you’re a crybaby. I couldn’t imagine the generals leading us in Thailand crying like he does all over the news every time a “hero soldier” died.
The bottom line is that cops wait until the shooting is over and then they show up. In this case the story (I’m hearing) is that Sternivitz’s team didn’t hear the shooting. Even “that” story has to be investigated because now the cops on his team look like derelict cowards if they actually waited until the shooting was over. Was there an “equipment malfunction” that didn’t record it? That suggests, then, some cop on the team didn’t check.
“Williams’ problem now as a former CPPA member the union protected when he commited crimes is that he’s trying to match “the city’s” perspective to the one “the union” offered instead of simply releasing the public records that identify the truth. He’s conspiring with other law enforcement officers to conceal the “color of law” violation of Dingess’ constitutional rights.
These acts violate both 18 U.S.C. 241 and 242 and Jackson and Williams were warned about this conduct in the U.S. DOJ’s civil review of the “criminal acts” they led police officers to commit when Williams served as Jackson’s deputy chief of operation. 600 incident reports contain evidence of Williams leading and allowing Sternivitz and other KGB-inspired cops to trample all over the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights and all criminal laws.
It’s the same shit Williams did with the Target employee who conducted a chase into East Cleveland in his personal vehicle that resulted in Tamia Chapman being hit by the American Negro he was unlawfully chasing. That fucking idiot’s another “hero.” Right Calvin. But only if he dies.
Keep in mind that CPPA president Jeffrey Folmer shows up at every cop incident and gets the story of what “really” took place before Jackson and Williams. Then “he” obstructs the city’s official perspective with his own to reporters waiting for “something.”
Folmer did this in East Cleveland at the Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams “slaughter” site when he obstructed that city’s criminal investigation with that city’s Fraternal Order of Police president, Scott Gardner, by separating the shooters and not allowing them to be questioned. Cleveland police, not East Cleveland police, unlawfully controlled the crime scene in the city they invaded and committed murder.
Gardner at the time and now was discharging a law enforcement officer’s duties with no valid Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy credentials. The Ohio Attorney General’s investigation features two interviews with Cleveland cop James Hummel that were different when he asked that Folmer not be present for his second one.
The irony that none of the Attorney General’s employees validated the credentials of the cops they conducted the investigation with although his office knew and had alerted them in writing had expired. Gardner had been ordered by then Ohio Attorney Richard Michael DeWine not to discharge a law enforcement officer’s duties while he was obstructing the investigation into Tim and Malissa’s police executions. All the cops on the Christian kill squad were Catholic.
It’s why I suspended Gardner, twice, for running his mouth to the media. He was a patrol officer like Folmer. Speaking for the municipal corporation is way above his rank and the union president’s only goal when cops are derelict in the performance of official duties or commit crimes is to obstruct the mayor’s authority.
I was the city’s chief law enforcement officer as mayor in East Cleveland. No one spoke for that official but me. Ain’t no funky-azz patrol officer I can hire, fire, promote, demote, assign, terminate and prosecute speaking for the city like he’s my equal. The mayor has legislative writing authority. Police don’t and I’m creative.
Me and Folmer would play a lot different. He’d learn his fucking place. I see from the outside where the city’s law director could prosecute his azz for all kinds of theft in office and obstruction with the laws already on the books. It was my Cleveland Challenger information that got Bob Beck looked at by Franklin County’s prosecutor while on the police and fire pension board. Folmer’s even more careless.
I’ve watched an interview with Dingess’ family and confirmed from at least published reports they had no knowledge he’d been kidnapped by a Cleveland police officer whose Russian last name is associated with exactly the type of Soviet Communist ideology that snatches citizens like their loved one off the streets. I’m going there.
Sternivitz’s surname is Russian. There’s no record of his family immigrating here in U.S. Ellis Island records. The surname “Sternivitz” doesn’t exist in my Ellis Island records search. Councilman Kevin Conwell told me the city doesn’t validate the citizenship of its workforce.
Cleveland Mayor Carl Stokes and I shot pool and we talked. [NOTE: My game’s still tight.] Carl shared some of his thoughts about the Eastern Europeans from Communist Soviet and Nazi nations dominating the public safety workforce and leadership.
The CPPA was founded the year Carl was elected mayor in 1968. Russian Solomon Isadore Neuhaus bought the Plain Dealer the year before in 1967. Neither wanted an American Negro “chief law enforcement officer” of the municipal corporation preventing them from executing their crimes against the citizens of this city. All this “Eastern European” background is in his book, “Promises of Power,” if anyone cares to read it.
For those of us who knew him this shit was “lived.” Today the way Carl understood then what was taking place is in better hindsight focus. The reasons for the Hough and Glenville riots were legitimate. Look at all the “Christian” American Negro men from “this” community who have recently been released from prison for crimes they were kidnapped off the streets and thrown into prison by conspiring Eastern European Catholic and Russian officials who knew they were innocent.
The “taoseach” or prime minister of Ireland during World War 11 collaborated with Adolf Hitler’s Nazi’s. The purpose of the collaboration was the Irish Catholics didn’t like the part of my DNA that comes from the Protestant side of Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
This is how confusing the politics of Cleveland becomes when the Eastern European descendants of Communists, Nazis and fascists killing each other over there don’t leave that shit where they left it. It’s why there’s a “consciousness” within Cleveland cops whose ancestors are from these nations that think they can kidnap citizens like Dingess off the streets and use them to commit crimes.
Carl took office in 1967. The fleeing Soviet World War II war criminals who had arrived here around 20 years earlier from 1945 and 1947 were still “ratlining” their way into the city and into jobs under assumed names. Some found their way into law enforcement. American Negroes were being hanged in jails during the 1960’s and 70’s in Soviet and Catholic-controlled cities like Cleveland Heights, Euclid, Richmond Heights, Garfield Heights and others. These are the cops who influenced and contaminated Williams’ thinking.
Williams led the 4th District when a Cleveland cop found George Sledge’s drivers license inside the public building and decided to use it to rent cars for an “undercover” drug investigation from Enterprise. While driving the vehicle in Sledge’s name the cop criminal received red light camera citations that went to Sledge.
At that time the city was impounding vehicles for the tickets so his was taken. Think of all Sledge had to go through to learn what “really” took place under his name at the hands of “law enforcement officers” who were really operating as criminals under Williams’ direct supervision. Williams gave the cop a written reprimand for his crimes. Sledge ended up facing criminal charges.
This Soviet-style policing isn’t going on everywhere across the nation in towns led by Christian politicians whose Protestant chiefs and cops are culturally taught from this nation’s biblical perspective “Thou shalt not kill.” American Negroes are being killed by cops in the south but the brutality of policing is not even close to what’s taking place in cities with larger Soviet and Catholic populations.
The descendants of these same individuals today, individuals like Irish Catholic prosecuting attorney Michael O’Malley, now allow 24 individuals without Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy credentials to operate in East Cleveland and other cities across this county today. O’Malley and the Irish Catholic and Soviet judges controlling the county courts know the arrests are illegal without credentials, but they’re still moving the cases these law enforcement officer impersonators are submitting forward. Yes O’Malley’s pushing an innocence project to free wrongly-convicted American citizens while he’s still wrongly-convicting American citizens. The majority of who are Christian.
The basic duties of municipal law enforcement officers is not taught by the Superintendent of the Ohio Highway Patrol or required in any Ohio Peace Officer Training Council curriculum that establishes standards for awarding peace officer credentials to city cops like the late Skernivitz.
I showed R.C. 737.11 to Jackson last year in his office on my cell phone and he read it for the first time after leading the city as its chief law enforcement officer since January 1, 2006. It’s the same day I was sworn in to do the same job in East Cleveland. Jackson said Calvin didn’t know it.
No patriotic citizen of a nation our ancestors built should accept this foreign-inspired un-American filth in a local government our vote controls. There shouldn’t be a local official standing in next year’s municipal elections for their longstanding tolerance of this “Democratic Party” evil.
Dingess was kidnapped into committing crimes by individuals impersonating law enforcement officers as they disobeyed some criminal laws to enforce others of their choosing. The instructions of R.C. 737.11 is that law enforcement officers of municipal corporations have no authority to choose which criminal laws they disobey as their mandatory duty is to obey them all.
I’m going to remind you cops, again, not to search for my name with your terminal ID number or any others on the NCIC, LEADS and CRIS databases. it’s less than $20 for me to get that information from the FBI and the Highway Patrol. That’s in a series of federal laws I know that you don’t.
What you need to know is R.C. 2913.04(C) and (D) under the heading, “Unauthorized use of property – computer, cable, or telecommunication property,” and the 5th degree felony penalities.
You should also know that any negotiated plea from any felony to a misdemeanor comes with an automatic Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy revocation for life. R.C. 2929.43. “Procedure for accepting peace officer’s guilty plea to felony or after conviction; negotiated misdemeanor pleas.”
Don’t fuck with me.
