Frank Jackson said the next mayor’s got to come from the streets and the streets are saying very loudly that Zachary Reed is going to be Cleveland’s next mayor

The trust that Zachary Reed has earned from Cleveland's American Negro community can be compared to the trust the Negro community had for George Forbes. The 1989 campaign between Mr. Forbes and then state senator Michael White shocked Clevelanders who didn't realize the city was majority Negro. For the first time two American Negro men of high political achievements for their respective lengths of service were competing for mayor. While both men were known in the American Negro community, Mr. Forbes was known longer, better and had demonstrated he could be trusted longer.

CLEVELAND, OH – I’ve observed Cleveland’s mayors up close as a journalist or political participant since Dennis Kucinich in 1978.  On the East Cleveland side since the late attorney Darryl Eugene Pittman in 1985.  In addition to serving in the elected office for for years, I served a year as former East Cleveland Mayor Emmanuel Weli Onunwor’s chief of staff and as a part-time Special Assistant for Cleveland Mayor Michael Reed White.  My former Director of Law in East Cleveland, the late attorney Almeta Johnson, served as Kucinich’s chief prosecuting attorney. On January 1, 2022 the mayoral candidate Cleveland voters

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

The FBI warned Ohio’s governor, mayors and sheriffs in 2006 that white supremacists were infiltrating law enforcement agencies

CLEVELAND, OH – In November 2006 I reviewed an FBI bulletin released October 17, 2006 which sought to alert elected officials that white supremacists were infiltrating law enforcement offices.  At the time I was serving my 10th month as East Cleveland’s mayor and director of public safety.  The late Patricia Lane was the civil service chief of police I had inherited.   The late Almeta Johnson, Cleveland’s first female chief prosecuting attorney, served as my director of law and chief prosecutor. The original version of the FBI’s bulletin was heavily-redacted as it portrayed how white supremacist law enforcement officers had access

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

Gowdy demands video King’s hiding non-OPOTA certified McDonald’s death threat against a cop he asked for drug evidence to give his girlfriend

CLEVELAND, OH – Ward 2 Councilwoman Juanita Gowdy wants the videos in the possession of the Richmond Heights resident who serves unlawfully as East Cleveland’s mayor that show a member of the organized crime gang he leads threatening a certified law enforcement officer’s life.  The certified law enforcement officer had placed his bodycam on a desk to record himself entering evidence from an arrest that included marijuana, cocaine and cash. Law enforcement officer impersonator Larry McDonald had already taken the cocaine but he wanted one of the bags of marijuana.  He was impersonating a police commander.  The bodycam shows “the

O’Malley is maliciously withholding exculpatory evidence of uncertified cops from criminal defendants

Michael O'Malley got mad at me when I called him the "stupidest son of a bitch" on the planet in front of Scene reporter Erick Trickey for his "Hit man for hire" piece about me in 2002. I wasn't disrespecting his mother. His curve-graded, racist ignorance disrespects all mothers whose love guided them to an education and public service. No "Christian" does this evil shit and loves the Lord. O'Malley is rightfully facing a complaint that he be removed from office. He has received evidence from Ohio's attorney general, as did his predecessors Tim McGinty and Bill Mason, that police whose charges he's presenting are impersonating law enforcement officers. When the prosecuting attorney of a county is engaged in a conspiracy under the color of law to violate the rights of every arrested citizen, he has to go. This is a Democratic run county and the criminals are the ones not obeying the Constitution of the United States of America, disregarding the Constitution of Ohio, and willfully failing to obey and enforce all the laws of the state and the United States. O'Malley and his co-conspirers operate like the Communist the U.S. Congress identified in the 1954 Communist Control Act every loyal American should read. If your elected officials can't explain how they're going to obey and enforce our Constitution when they're asking for our votes we should not be electing them. They're Communists and will refuse to obey and enforce it as they use public offices to violate all our rights.

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
