CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM, CLEVELAND, Ohio-An investigation by the Kathy Wray Coleman Online News Blog. Com and Cleveland Urban News.Com, Ohio's leaders in Black digital news, reveals that Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty (pictured), who served 19 years as a common pleas judge before becoming prosecutor, wreaked havoc on the legal system. He has done the following as county prosecutor since taking office in 2012 that support him not getting reelected this year, among other alleged improprieties: 1) Ensured that Cleveland police and other police in the county that gun down Blacks will generally not get indicted by county grand juries; 2) Adopted an illegal office policy that is contrary to state law (R.C. 2935.10) that protects cops that kill Black people from preliminary felony charges in municipal courts prior to the convening of a county grand jury while Blacks are charged, arrested and given high arrest bonds at the municipal level by corrupt judges like racist Shaker Heights Judge K.J. Montgomery, an alleged drunk who uses Black lawyers that practice in her court to serve as judge to maliciously prosecute Blacks and her enemies; 3) Ensured that Blacks are disproportionately indicted, prosecuted, convicted and sent to prison in large numbers; 4) Cooperated with the gross theft of homes of county residents via public corruption and fraud with big banks and mortgage companies like JPMorgan Chase Bank and per corrupt judges, county officials, and others; 4) Harassed the grieving mother of 12-year-old Cleveland police murder victim Tamir Rice publicly, and after shielding the two White cops who gunned the Black boy down from an indictment by a county grand jury on criminal charges; 5) Lobbied for 12 of the 13 non- Black Cleveland cops that gunned down unarmed Blacks Malissa Williams and Timothy Russell in 2012 with 137 bullets to not get indicted and ensured that the lone cop indicted, Michael Brelo, was acquitted of manslaughter charges in a bench trial before corrupt Common Pleas Judge John O'Donnell, his ally: 6) Subjected Blacks to multiple grand juries on the same issues until getting indictments on felony criminal charges while cops who erroneously gun down Black people get only one grand jury assessment and likely no indictments; 7) Colluded with the 34 majority White judges of the general division common pleas court to ensure disparities in sentencing against the Black community; and, 8) Used the county prosecutor's office to bully his enemies with malicious prosecutions.
An investigation by the Kathy Wray Coleman Online News Blog.Com and Cleveland Urban News.Com, Ohio's leaders in Black digital news, reveals that as a 19-year Cuyahoga County Common Pleas judge prior to becoming county prosecutor Tim McGinty did the following that support him not getting reelected this year, among other improprieties: 1) Had Michael Green prosecuted (as an assistant county prosecutor before becoming judge) and sent to prison for 13 years alleging a rape of a White woman where the arbitrary rape conviction was subsequently vacated and Green, a Black man, has since been released due to DNA sampling; 2) Issued a warrant that had police storm the family home of then 16-year-old Brandon McCloud, who was accused of robbing a delivery pizza man where the unarmed Black teen was shot by police 12 times, and died; 3) Handed Plain Dealer reporters the medical and mental health records of convicted serial killer Anthony Sowell and said after being exposed by then Plain Dealer Editor Susan Goldberg that he thought he had an agreement with newspaper reporters and ranking officials to keep it quiet that he is a source to it, though Goldberg said before resigning as editor in 2010 that no such agreement was ever reached; 4) Resigned as the judge presiding over the Anthony Sowell capital murder case for unethical activity, including providing case data to the Plain Dealer, Ohio's largest newspaper; 5) Jailed a White female community activist who is a member of the Cleveland Heights-based grassroots group Revolution Books in a mental ward illegally because she wore an anti-George Bush t-shirt to court and would not apologize to police for being beat up by them for posting anti-George Bush signs on street poles in Cleveland Heights.; 6) Had an order to imprison a Black man for an alleged probation violation when the probation period was up overturned on appeal; 7) Had an order for a Cherokee Indian woman to do a 10 page essay on drunk driving, that he did not ask of similarly situated Whites, overturned on appeal; 8) Kissed up to Plain Dealer reporters to have them do favorable articles rather than to tell the truth about him; 9) Said in a a CBS News special in 2010 that Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, his administration, and Cleveland police were allegedly responsible, via neglect, for the Imperial Avenue Murders as to the murders of 11 Black women whose bodies were uncovered at the Imperial Avenue home of since convicted serial killer Anthony Sowell in 2009; and, 10) Appointed former Cleveland NAACP executive director Stanley Miller, who was the executive director at the time, as a Cuyahoga County grand jury foreman who then led the way in bringing felony indictments of criminal charges against Blacks and women that previous grand juries would not indict on the same issues. (Editor's note: Community activists want the state law amended that allows common pleas court judges to appoint grand jury foremen, and by handpicking friends, associates and other people that are not even on the grand jury at issue. It is unconstitutional because it infringes upon the right to due process via a neutral trier of the law per the 14th amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and relative to other authorities).
