CLEVELAND, OH – Michael O’Malley in his official capacity as Cuyahoga County’s prosecuting attorney has been copied, like his predecessors Timothy McGinty and William D. Mason, on “cease” letters the current and former Ohio Attorney Generals have forwarded to the office alerting them of felony crimes cops are committing by making arrests with expired Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy (OPOTA) credentials. What he hasn’t done is deliver the “cease” letters to criminal defendants as “exculpatory evidence.” Instead, O’Malley and the county’s judges are criminally-involved in a real time conspiracy to deprive thousands of American citizens in Cuyahoga County of their constitutional rights.
Every law enforcement officer in Ohio knows their certifications expire on December 31 of each year. 15 days before the expiration date they’re supposed to receive 24 hours of professional continuing education training when state funds are available to pay for it. No funds. No required training. Within 30 days after the training they’re supposed to send the validated list of who was trained by a certified instructor to the state attorney general’s OPOTA office. The state then reimburses the police department for its training. A current contract trainer, a former mayor, has no OPOTA training.
The General Assembly of Ohio passed Senate Bill 281 in 2006 giving Ohio’s attorney general the duty to supervise a peace officer training commission, appoint members to a training council, establish rules to manage training and to ensure that all of the state’s police officers are trained. The main purpose of the legislation was to provide funding for police training. DeWine took $64 million out of the police training budget and used it to test rape kits. It was a “campaign promise” this anarchist Communist believed circumvented the state’s general law.
All of the duties DeWine was mandated to ensure were obeyed are spelled out under the “duties” of Ohio’s attorney general found in R.C. 109. The specific section for training begins with R.C. 109.79. The extension request “duty” is spelled out in plain English in R.C. 109.803. The only extension is under Section (2) of 109.803.
An appointing authority may submit a written request to the peace officer training commission that requests for a calendar year because of emergency circumstances an extension of the time within which one or more of its appointed peace officers or troopers must complete the required minimum number of hours of continuing professional training set by the commission, as described in division (A)(1) of this section. A request made under this division shall set forth the name of each of the appointing authority’s peace officers or troopers for whom an extension is requested, identify the emergency circumstances related to that peace officer or trooper, include documentation of those emergency circumstances, and set forth the date on which the request is submitted to the commission. A request shall be made under this division not later than the fifteenth day of December in the calendar year for which the extension is requested.
The “appointing authority” is the mayor of a municipal corporation. Period. No police chief anywhere in Ohio has the authority to “appoint” a police officer by administering an oath of office to them. Only the mayor who as the chief law enforcement officer of the municipal corporation, unless its managed by a city manager, can hire, promote, demote and terminate cops. Under civil service laws the mayor has exclusive disciplinary authority. Not the chief of police. Pursuant to R.C. 737.06 police chiefs can “station and transfer municipal law enforcement officers under the rules of the safety director.” Police chiefs have no rule or regulation writing authority. So all the “departmental rules” across Ohio in the names of police chiefs are not authorized by law. A police chief can’t sign “any” contracts, including the NCIC / LEADS participation agreement they’ve been signing with the Ohio Highway Patrol. That legal authority, again, is a “right” of the mayor’s “office.”
Every OPOTA cease letter coming out of the Attorney General’s office, that’s addressed to a “chief of police,” obstructs mayors in Ohio, who are appointing authorities, from knowing the cops under them are committing crimes. I served as East Cleveland, Ohio’s mayor from January 1, 2006 through December 31, 2009 when Richard Cordray served as the state’s attorney general. I never received a “cease” letter from him and I did not know, at the time, the letters existed.
Without the annual training they are to immediately stop discharging a law enforcement officer’s duties on January 1st of each year and resign. The net effect of not taking the training is to voluntarily-resign. They had 15 days before December 31st to ask the mayor to write to the director of OPOTA for an extension; and to explain the extenuating circumstance that prevented them from receiving it. The request from the “apppointing authority” is the “only” way a police officer can continue past January 1st of each year without OPOTA credentials. The extension from the director is in writing. No written extension and no later excuse of the law enforcement officer impersonator matters. They were clearly instructed to stop on January 1st of each year.
OAC: 2-18-06(A) spells these plain English instructions to every cop in Ohio.
“Pursuant to division (B) of section 109.803 of the Revised Code, any peace officer or trooper who, in any calendar year, fails to comply with the continuing professional training requirements set forth in paragraphs 109:2-18-01 to 109:2-18-07 of the Administrative Code shall cease carrying a firearm and shall cease performing the functions of a peace officer or trooper until such time as evidence of compliance is filed with the executive director. This rule does not apply to peace officers or troopers for whom an extension of time has been granted by the executive director.”
If they’ve failed to receive 24 hours of “annual” state mandated training within 15 days before December 31st, they are to “cease discharging the duties of law enforcement officers and wearing a weapon” on January 1st. By the time O’Malley receives “cease” letters from the state’s attorney general the law enforcement officer whose OPOTA credentials expired on December 31st has “knowingly” continued making arrests and wearing a weapon. O’Malley should have validated the lack of credentials and brought charges against them as he knows they’re engaging in multiple felony crimes.
Ohio’s attorney generals have not been sending the “cease” letters to the mayors and presidents of council to whom the correspondence belongs as officers of the municipal corporation. Instead the letters are addressed to police chiefs – who then conceal the information from mayors and councils – while creating legal liabilities for taxpayers by leaving themselves and the uncertified cops working. The county prosecutor is copied. None of the judges. Cleveland councilman Kevin Conwell recently told EJBNEWS that chief of police Calvin Williams has never shared any information about an uncertified police officer with council.
There are 9 state general laws between sections 109.74 and 109.748 that spelled out to DeWine and Yost the specific and mandated annual training law enforcement officers across Ohio have no other choice but to receive. Failure to obey the state’s general traing and cease laws is a “suspension” of the laws and violates Article 1.18 of Ohio’s constitution; and no official has the authority to suspend any law by failing to obey and enforce it once a “duty” is imposed on a public office.
There are approximately 900 police departments in Ohio. Chasing Justice founder Mariah Crenshaw recently emailed all 900 to learn if the law enforcement officers they employ are OPOTA certified. The email sent an earthquake of activity towards Attorney General David Yost who inherited the mess Governor Richard Michael DeWine left of the office after 8 recklessly-incompetent and criminally-derelict years. About 200 email returned with addresses to defunct police departments.
The Cleveland Municipal School District’s “police” have never been authorized or trained by OPOTA to discharge law enforcement officer duties. Every arrest of a juvenile they’ve made under the criminal superintendent, Eric Gordon, is a savagely-malicious violation of their constitutional rights.
DeWine operated with the woman he appointed to lead the department, Mary Davis, on an “honor system” that ignored the instructions in Ohio’s revised and administrative codes to train and validate cop training like he did the 26 pandemic mitigating laws during the common cold and flu season. This ignorant, non-reading fool put “preachers’ on a commission that sets standards for training police. Only a cop can train another cop under this idiot’s rules. Not a judge nor a prosecutor who know “laws.” I’m a former and that shit is fucking ridiculous.
Crenshaw said the only training many police got under DeWine was on how to shoot and kill Ohioans; even through the windows of moving cars. The U.S. Department of Justice warned Cleveland in its 2002 federal investigation that shooting at moving cars was evidence that the shooter’s life was not in danger. Frederick Crawford’s killer outside Dayton was not certified. Neither was Luke Stewart’s in Euclid. Both were private citizens impersonating law enforcement officers DeWine criminally-failed to ensure were certified.
Even when DeWine’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation investigators called themselves investigating Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams’ 137 bullet slaughter in East Cleveland, both Scott Gardner and Jeffrey Folmer were impersonating law enforcement officers. Steve Loomis was impersonating a law enforcement officer when he wore a Cleveland police union to endorse President Donald Trump.
Crenshaw said she’s been receiving calls from police chiefs across the state whose records are not on file with the state attorney general’s office. DeWine wasnt’ keeping track. Neither has Yost. Three employees in Yost’s office have resigned within days after hearing from police chief’s who want their records; and learning the attorney general’s office had not been maintaining them as required. Crenshaw’s learned Yost is throwing cops under the bus with reminders that it’s the cop’s duty to cease on his or her own under the law.
I’ve previously reported how Crenshaw learned that 24 East Cleveland police officers have no OPOTA credentials. The uncertified cops include the current and last police chiefs: Scott Gardner and Michael Cardilli. One East Cleveland cop, Ernest Stanford killed a man after he’s operated for 19 years without training. Only one East Cleveland police officer is current in his training. The city’s police department is completely under the control of private citizens impersonating law enforcement officers who are engaged in armed kidnappings of American citizens.
Neither East Cleveland’s law director, Willa Hemmons, nor its prosecuting attorney, Heather McCollough, are “oath sworn” officials. Hemmons filed a “defamation” complaint against Crenshaw for blasting the law enforcement officer impersonators she should have prosecuted. Every complaint Hemmons has filed or responded to has been without a resolution of council as her filings operate to conceal police crimes. Judge Will Dawson is in violation of R.C. 2938.13 by allowing private citizens to prosecute cases in the East Cleveland municipal court. So is his magistrate. Pursuant to R.C. 705.28, neither attorney was ever authorized to present themselves in court before a judge as they usurped vacant public offices.
Crenshaw learned that the entire Rocky River and Maple Heights police departments have police on the streets criminally arresting citizens without expired OPOTA credentials. She’s collected over 250 “cease” letters the state attorney general’s office has sent to Cuyahoga county police chiefs.
Beachwood’s mayor, Martin Horwitz, just hired Rocky River’s “uncertified” police chief , Kelly Stillman, after he left that city’s mayor, Pamela Bobst, with uncertified police. Stillman, today, has no arrest authority and is stealing from Beachwood’s taxpayers while also creating a legal liability for the Russian American controlled government.
Stillman should be criminally-prosecuted by both mayors for theft in office, obstruction of official business, conspiracy to violate rights under the color of law and for impersonating a law enforcement officer. His public employee’s pension should be stripped as he was not legally a public employee without OPOTA credentials. A “certified” Beachwood cop should arrest him when he shows up for work.
Rocky River prosecutor Michael O’Shea recently prosecuted a traffic case and refused to turn over the police officer’s expired OPOTA credentials to Justyn Anderson as exculpatory evidence that the cop on the side of I-90 within its jurisdiction is a private citizen impersonating a law enforcement officer.
Crenshaw’s been met with resistance by the “Catholic bloc” controlling Cuyahoga county’s criminal justice system. It is no stereotype” that Irish Catholics dominate the criminal justice system. There are families of Irish Catholic judges, prosecutors and police protecting each other from being held accountable to obeying the laws they’re using against others. O’Malley was Mason’s number two when they conspired with Irish Catholic Judge Brian Corrigan to seal the records of 496 Catholic church pedophiles and rapists. Their family members.
This explains Irish Catholic Judge John P. O’Donnell failing to turn in any campaign finance reports to the Catholic-controlled Cuyahoga County Board of Elections for any of his campaigns for judge between 2002 and 2014. All were delivered on January 22, 2014 years after he entered office and presided over trials unlawfully. O’Donnell has not lawfully acquired a public employee pension. Mason was supposed to enforce R.C. 3517.10 the same way John T. Corrigan did against Mitchell Paul. Criminal prosecution. The single referal of O’Donnell to the Ohio Elections Commission was withdrawn.
As Cuyahoga County’s prosecuting attorney, Irish Catholic O’Malley knows and has been engaged in criminal acts with Catholic judges like Richard McMonagle, Denise Rini and others to conceal the evidence Crenshaw has discovered. Michael Ryan is one of the few Protestant Christians serving as a county judge.
All received R.C. 2935.09 and 2935.10 “complaints on knowledge” from Crenshaw of the felony violations of law cops across the county are engaging when they enter a public safety vehicle, access the FBI’s NCIC database through CRIS and LEADS and kidnap citizens off the streets with false arrests and imprisonment while armed and operating unlawfully under the “color of law.” None of the judges obeyed R.C. 2935.10’s instructions and referred the evidence of cop crimes to O’Malley as they were required. They don’t even have a process for accepting criminal complaints from citizens against elected and appointed officials who like the non-OPOTA certified cops are violating laws.
Rini took the conspiratorial step of “sealing” Crenshaw’s “motion” as “evidence” she didn’t want the public to know; an act that is not authorized under R.C. 2935.10. She’s exceeded the duty of the office of a judge by not disposing of Crenshaw’s “motion under the Supreme Court of Ohio’s “rules of superintendence of the courts.” McMonagle’s playing games with “after the fact” changes to the docket to cover up for the mistakes he made in covering up for the cops Crenshaw filed criminal complaints against for impersonating law enforcement officers operating without OPOTA credentials.
The concealing acts of each official, particularly the judges, is a federal “Misprision of felony” crime pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 4. The FBI investigated and the U.S. Attorney General prosecuted the late Kentucky Judge Richard Baumgarten under this law for failing to report a felony crime he learned of during a trial in 2012. Baumgarten’s law license was stripped and he was sentenced to 18 months in a federal prison.
“Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.”
The net effect of the lack of OPOTA credentials is that the person making the arrest was a private citizen impersonating a law enforcement officer who should be prosecuted instead of testifying in front of judges. O’Malley’s failure to deliver the cease letters he’s received to American citizens he’s prosecuting places him smack dab in the middle of a federal conspiracy to violate their constitutional rights under the color of law. Crenshaw has filed an R.C. 309.05 motion for neglect and misconduct to have him removed from office. That state law allows one citizen to file a complaint with a court of common pleas judge to achieve that goal.
What’s pathetic for me as a former mayor is how no criminal defense attorney first validates the oaths and certifications of the officials interacting with their client; and studies or knows the laws that identifies the duties they’re required to discharge. Consider that “municipal police” pursuant to R.C. 737.11 are given the following statutory and mandatory duties.
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.
Every reader should observe the word “obey” comes before the parenthetical term “all criminal laws of the state and United States.” The effect of the word “obey” in association with “all criminal laws” clearly establishes that there is no “officer discretion” not to obey or enforce a law irrespective of the offender or offense. It restricts a police chief from allowing a private citizen to discharge the duties of a law enforcement officer after January 1st of each year. It requires a police chief or any other law enforcement with knowledge of a criminal law being violated to arrest a fellow law officer discharging duties without their OPOTA credentials after January 1st of each year.
Anyone who has read the duties of county prosecutors under R.C. 309 knows the words “prosecutorial discretion” are non-existent. O’Malley’s duty pursuant to R.C. 309.09 is to ensure that every judge, the sheriff and his own prosecutorial employees are “advised” to discharge the duties of their offices. He’s not delivering exculpatory evidence to American citizens armed uncertified law enforcement officer impersonators are kidnapping off this county’s streets. He’s not ordering the prosecutors under him to deliver it. This organized crime boss is conspiring with other criminal justice officials to conceal it. Consider East Cleveland’s law enforcement officer impersonators, and every other law enforcement officer impersonator, are in unions negotiating wages and benefits; and being paid pensions with the public funds they stole. This anarchist Communist-inspired evil has no place in the United States of America.
Every citizen who encounters a law enforcement officer should ask a police officer who stops them if they are currently OPOTA certified; and if they are discharging a law enforcement officer’s duties under a “cease” order. No judge should preside over a trial who has not first validated that municipal prosecutors and cops have oaths and bonds of office on file with the clerk of council pursuant to R.C. 705.28; and that each required cop certification is validated with the “originating agency.” It’s pathetic that criminal defense lawyers haven’t studied general laws instead of case laws to know the duties of elected and appointed public offices. .
If laws were obeyed by every elected and appointed public official there would be no uncertified and untrained police officer anywhere in Ohio. But thanks to criminally-derelict ex-Ohio Attorney General DeWine, thousands of cops are uncertified, untrained, making unlawful arrests and kidnapping American citizens off our streets with the help of a conspiratorial prosecuting attorney who refuses to deliver them exculpatory evidence that the cops he’s covering up for are the real criminals.
