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

Endorsed by the Plain Dealer, Gary Norton and his police chief’s secretary got too power and money hungry with East Cleveland cash

The 2014 audit of the city of East Cleveland's finances reveals how Rick Case used car salesman Gary Norton and the police chief's ex-secretary, Vanessa Veals, mishandled payroll records for police whose time could not be verified as to the times they started or ended; or whether the overtime they were paid was authenticated.

CLEVELAND, OH – The benefit to being a Plain Dealer endorsed candidate for elected office is that the newspaper’s publisher and editors assign reporters to keep the politician’s image looking like the one their endorsement created and concealing their crimes.  Its editors don’t want the people to know they don’t know a damn thing about government and their endorsements should have been ignored. As many stories as this town’s reporters have “stolen” and continue to steal from my publications without attribution, they didn’t “steal” any of those I wrote clearly demonstrating that Gary Alexander Norton, Jr. is a criminal.  It’s

Prosecutor leaked video I sent to FBI of McDonald asking for drugs the mayor is obstructing council from investigating

CLEVELAND, OH – A federal law I know is codified at 18 U.S.C. 4 instructs anyone with knowledge of a federal crime to report it to court of cognizable jurisdiction or a civil or military authority; or face up to three years in prison for “misprision of felony.”  So when I obtained a copy of the video last week of law enforcement officer impersonator Larry McDonald asking an OPOTA-certified law enforcement officer for some of the drugs he’d seized during an arrest I forwarded it to a Special Agent at the Federal Bureau of Investigtion (FBI) that handles public corruption.

Dewine let thousands among Ohio’s 32,000 cops make arrests with expired OPOTA credentials and has told no mayor

CLEVELAND, OH – Beaver Creek, Ohio police officer Sean Williams’ Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy (OPOTA) credentials expired on December 31, 2013. On January 1, 2014 he was  still discharging the duties of a law enforcement officer and carrying a weapon in violation of an unsuspended general law of the state that ordered him to stop.  Had Beaver Creek city manager Mike Cornell discharged the duties of that office Williams should have been terminated on January 1st of that year without any rights as an employee for voluntarily-surrendering his OPOTA credentials.  Instead, Beaver Creek police chief Dennis Evers continued to
