Councilman Timothy Austin accused of arson murder attempt after he asks elderly couple for more home repair money and the ex-Iraq war vet was refused

CLEVELAND, OH – An 80-year-old East Cleveland couple narrowly-escaped being burned to death in their home at 14105 Orinoco Road after a murderous arsonist torched the front and rear doors of their residence on August 21st.    The tactic is similar to one lawless soldiers and terrorists disregarding rules of conflict use to massacre unarmed civilians or drive out “holed in” enemy combatants. It was used by “unionists” in East Saint Louis, Illinois on July 6, 1917 to aid in the extermination of more than 1000 American Negro men, women and children.  Homes were torched and the fleeing families were

Gowdy encourages Americans stopped, arrested and pursued by uncertified East Cleveland cops to use council’s “impersonation” ordinance to file criminal charges against them with Judge Dawson

Council vice president Juanita Gowdy started asking the hard questions about contracts, police warrantless pursuits the media calls high speed chases and Brandon King's spending as soon as she joined council on January 1, 2020.

CLEVELAND, OH – People who are detained, pursued, ticketed or arrested by individuals discharging police duties in East Cleveland should be using Ordinance Number 525.03 Council Vice President Juanita Gowdy, Councilman Nathaniel Martin and Council President Korean Stevenson enacted to validate their credentials.   State laws instruct police that if their appointing authority hasn’t ensured they’ve received state approved retraining, annually, by December 15th; they are to “cease discharging the duties of a law enforcement officer and wearing a weapon” on December 31st. The ordinance is captioned the Tamia Chapmann Act and amends the city’s “impersonation of a law enforcement officer”

Read Ohio Criminal Rule 11 and the “pleas, rights upon plea” rights that come with every arrest to understand why Basheer Jones’ disappearing arrest records made Judge Dawson curious

Judge William Dawson's authority has been obstructed by Mayor Brandon King, police and prosecutors who are making cases go away without bringing Americans they've arrested without warrants before the court to file an affidavit of charges. After King visited Basheer Jones in jail the day he was arrested on gun charges in 2019 his "paperwork" went away, but the arrest record remained on the FBI's National Crime Information Center criminal records history database. King allegedly told police not to contact Judge Dawson so Twon Billings could be bonded out of a jail the state ordered closed. Dawson must investigate and file criminal charges against the offenders.

CLEVELAND, OHIO – I have published Ohio Criminal Rule 11 in its entirety at the bottom of this story so readers will fully-understand the relevancy behind the question I asked East Cleveland Municipal Court Judge William Dawson about the status of Ward 7 Councilman Basheer Sudan Jones’ case.  Jones was arrested by two East Cleveland police officers on April 19, 2019. Jones was charged with “improper handling of firearms in a motor vehicle.”  The offense was a 4th degree felony violation of Section 2923. 16 of the Ohio Revised Code.   The incident report East Cleveland’s cops generated doesn’t identify the

Pharrell’s gun-licensed, security company owning cousin was killed by a Virginia Beach cop whose bodycam the police chief says was turned off

CLEVELAND, OH – Virginia Beach city council and the city’s National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) chapter are seeking answers for why a police officer with his bodycam turned off shot singer Pharrell Williams’ cousin through marriage to death on March 26, 2021.  Virginia Beach city council scheduled a special meeting for March 30, 2021 to discuss the drama that dragged their city into the national “police killing” spotlight. Two people were killed at Virginia Beach’s Oceanfront on March 26, 2021.  Eight were injured. The dead are Donovan Lynch and reality star Deshayla E. Harris, 29, of

Juanita Gowdy’s running for East Cleveland mayor because voters are disgusted with Richmond Heights resident Brandon King’s lying and stealing

Council vice president Juanita Gowdy started asking the hard questions about contracts, police warrantless pursuits the media calls high speed chases and Brandon King's spending as soon as she joined council on January 1, 2020.

CLEVELAND, OH – Council Vice President and East Cleveland Sunrise publisher Juanita Gowdy is counting on the truth that the voters of East Cleveland know more than a few things about Mayor Brandon King that disgusts them as she challenges him for the “chief law enforcement officer”s job he holds illegally as a Richmond Heights resident.  Elected officials under Ohio laws must be residents of the community they’re elected to serve. For the past nearly two years, Gowdy and East Cleveland Sunrise co-publisher Justyn Anderson have been distributing their 5000 circulation newspaper to every household, door-to-door, providing information-starved voters and

Mike Smedley goes into hiding after EJBNEWS exposes a video of him naming Cuyahoga county council woman Cheryl Stephens as his “Mike Riley” hookup

CLEVELAND, OH – The day after Christmas 2020, Michael Smedley went into hiding and stopped showing up for work at East Cleveland city hall … again.   Gary Norton had been indicted along with Vanessa Veals on December 14, 2020.  Twelve days later, the day after acknowledging the celebrated birth of Yeshua the Christ on December 25th,  I published a November 2018 audio recording of Smedley’s conversation with Ward 2 residents on my EJBNEWS website December 26th. Smedley’s recent disappearing act is the same as the behavior that drove him into hiding when he told residents of Ward 2 in East
