CLEVELAND, OH – American Negro D’Shane Wilcox was shot to death in the line of duty on E. 138th Street on November 18, 2018. He was a sanitation worker keeping the city’s streets clean so roaches, rodents, flies and other vermin would not enter our homes. Anyone who understands the efffects of piled up trash knows filth kills. Sanitation workers are heroes.
Cleveland Mayor frank Jackson offered this heroic father of two children’s family “condolesences” and not a fucking dime was spent to cover the cost of his funeral. Wilcox’s killer has still not been found.
Wilcox’s cop city co-workers didn’t go “all hands on deck” with their fellow worker’s killing. Williams wasn’t on the news calling him a “hero” and crying like a little bitch about how he sacrificed himself to save us all from the diseases that comes from unemptied trash cans. There are no “hero” stories from this town’s media crying for his killer to be found. A $2500 reward was offered. So far no takers.
So the “standard” for solving city worker homicides is the way Wilcox’s murder was treated. Just like everybody else’s. Less than 50 percent solve rate. No big deal.
Russian American James Skernivitz like Wilcox worked for the city of Cleveland. He was shot to death on September 3 with an American man he kidnapped into committing a crime who was already under indictment for theft. The crime the city worker wanted the man, Scott Dingess, to commit involved the purchase of drugs. The man’s American family now has a valid civil rights claim for the lawbreaking that led to their loved one’s death at the taxpayer’s expense.
By September 4 the lawbreaking city worker Skernivitz’s killer was caught as his fellow Cleveland city workers, the majority with ancestry to Eastern European nations, exceeded the authority of the public jobs they held to “station and transfer” themselves into an American Negro lynch mob overtime opportunity during a budget-draining pandemic. They then stationed and transferred themselves, using city equipment and at overtime expense, to obstruct the official business of the majority American Negro populated taxpayers to bury him. To this town’s Russian-owned media, their ancestral countryman is a state-hero.
Two city workers shot and killed in the line of duty on the job ; and two completely different responses from the same elected and appointed public officials and media. One employee was an American Negro whose enslaved ancestor built this nation. The other is a Russia American whose last name doesn’t show up on my Ellis Island records search; and whose surname is not native to this land.
The style of policing an American Negro mayor and police chief allows law enforcement officers to use that results in the kidnapping of American citizens off the streets to use in the execution of a crime is foreign to this nation. So is the authority of public employees to appropriate public funds on their own to enrich themselves at the taxpayer’s expense under the “guise” of solving a homicide.
There are two questions to ask when it comes to how one group of civil servants is allowed to confiscate public funds to catch their class of worker’s killer. Are all civil service workers employed with the municipal corporation authorized by law to appropriate public funds to discharge duties that exceed the level of service provided to other civil service workers and citizens? Can the city’s sanitation workers, through their union leadership, appropriate overtime to catch a killer without legislative authorization?
The duties of municipal police officers are found in Section 737.11 of the Ohio Revised Code. It’s a straightforward general law that instructs them to “obey” first before they enforce “all” federal, state and local criminal laws and orders of the court.
Chapter 37-194 of Cleveland’s Charter sets forth in similar language as Section 705.28 of the Revised Code of Ohio that all employees of the city shall take an oath of office prior to entering the office and discharging its duties. The oath pursuant to the state’s general law instructs them to obey the U.S. and Ohio constitutions. Every right and provision of the U.S. Constitution applies equally to all citizens; so this rogue 4th and 14th amendment violating searching, stopping and snatching of people off the streets ain’t fucking American at all.
Skernivitz was not discharging the duties of a municipal law enforcement officer when he was using a kidnapped man to commit a crime. Council should be seeking to indemnify itself of his “individual” and not “official” conduct as an employee who was not discharging the duties identified in R.C. 737.11 for municipal police officers. There’s 9.87(B)(2) of Ohio’s revised code that explains the duty to protect taxpayers through indemnification under the following conditions”
When the officer or employee acts manifestly outside the scope of the officer’s or employee’s employment or official responsibilities, with malicious purpose, in bad faith, or in a wanton or reckless manner, as determined by the employer of the officer or employee or by the attorney general.
Civilian municipal law enforcement officers have stuck themselves with the story that Dingess was operating as an informant. The use of a citizen in the capacity of an informant is authorized and “limited” by federal and state laws no record will show Skernivitz, his co-workers, Williams, Jackson or any city prosecuting attorney obeyed.
Sternivitz was assigned to the U.S. Department of Justice’s Operation Legend task force on September 2, 2020. The federal law required vetting process that leads to his voluntary signature on a form cannot be achieved within 24 hours and during an 8-hour shift. Any act an employee engaged in that did not comply with the duties of the job or laws is “outside the scope of the officer or employee’s employment or official responsibilities.” Criminally, under R.C. 2921.44(E) it’s called “dereliction of duty.”
Pursuant to 18 U.S. C. 241 and 242, Cleveland law enforcement officers engaged in a “color of law” violation of Dingess’ rights and are now in a conspiracy with the story of his being an informant to conceal their crimes by coloring him as “hero.” Skernivitz was not wearing a police uniform and was sitting in a private vehicle.
The three teenagers cops are trying to paint as assassins saw two white men sitting behind a building. One possessed a weapon. The same criminals who kidnapped Dingess, and who appropriated overtime “theft in office” for themselves without legislative authorization to catch Skernivitz’s killer, now manipulate public opinion. City council, not any employee, controls the city’s money through legislative enactment. Council did not appropriate overtime money to catch “one” nonn-resident employee of the city’s killer.
The truth to what happened on W. 65th and Storer could be as simple as three American Negro teenagers decided to buy some weed in a city where under 200 grams is not criminal; and they encountered a Russian American criminal who pulled out his gun and they defended themselves. Had Skernivitz been operating within the law and worn the uniform he was assigned to his civil servant class of worker, and operated out of the marked public safety vehicle council appropriated money to pay for his use, the teens would have kept it moving.
This cop appropriation of public funds should anger every Cleveland taxpayer. The standard for solving homicides is set by the way Jackson, council, Williams and the state treated Wilcox. Condolesences. No funeral assistance. No extra overtime to catch a city worker’s killer. No reappropriation of municipal resources for public displays on municipal streets. No American flag flown at half mast by the state’s Irish American governor.
It cost roughly $30 million for the state of Pennsylvania’s 1000 cop, 48-day, overtime driven manhunt to catch Russian American Eric Matthew Frein in 2014 when he shot state police officer and American Bryon K. Dickson II to death and seriously wounded state police officer and American Alex Douglass. The disparate treatment of police homicides versus everyone else’s is made more compelling because had Dingess been alone there’d be no story.
There’s one section Cleveland officials rampantly ignore that provides strict guidance on the “legal” number of hours a city employee can work. Chapter 37-196 instructs the following:
Except in case of extraordinary emergencies, not to exceed eight hours shall constitute a day’s work and not to exceed forty-eight hours a week’s work, for any City employee of the City of Cleveland in the classified service thereof, and for any workmen engaged in any public work carried on or aided by the Municipality whether done by contract or otherwise. The Council shall by ordinance, provide for the enforcement of the provisions of this section. (Effective November 9, 1931)
Based on the official acts Jackson, Williams and other employees engage in for every other homicide the death of an American citizen is not an “extraordinary emergency.” So every classified employee is lawfully restricted to no more than 8 hours per day under a section of Cleveland’s charter that was on the books when every collective bargaining agreement in the city was enacted.
Anything that conflicts with the charter is unlawful. Frank doesn’t have the legal authority to negotiate language outside the charter. The instructions in the charter’s language to council is clear.
The Council shall by ordinance, provide for the enforcement of the provisions of this section.
So any overtime provision in any collective bargaining agreement that conflicts with this language, even if council approved it, is voided. A homicide based on past practices is not an “extraordinary emergency” that would create an overtime opportunity for police officers.
Instead of playing politics with the police union council should be investigating the overtime used to catch Sternivitz’s killers. They should compare the deployment of police to Sternivitz’s killer to that of every other city worker killed in the line of duty by checking the assignments and payroll records of the police during the time of the crime.
The questions to Calvin are simple. Under what statutory authority were police stationed and transfered to receive overtime to catch Sternivitz’s killer? Under what statutory authority were police stationed and transfered to attend his funeral?
To chief Angelo Cavillo. Under what statutory authority in R.C. 737.09 are you authorized to station and transfer firefighters and equipment, and obstruct the fire department’s official business, to participate in Sternivitz’s funeral? Did the fire department provide firefighters and equipment for D’Shane Wilcox’s funeral?
Both officials should be directed to submit the cost of these “overtime generating” exercises to the council for examination. If either official has exceeded the authority of their public offices, and that includes the mayor, council should recapture the funds and file criminal charges.
Pursuant to R.C. 733.34, the mayor shall supervise the conduct of all officers and employees of the municipal corporation; and that’s in his official “law enforcement officer” capacity as the city’s “chief conservator of the peace.”
