Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas Judge Shirley Strickland Saffold Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas Judge Timothy McGinty Suspected Serial Killer Of 11 Cleveland, Oh. Black Women Anthony Sowell By Kathy Wray Coleman, Editor of the Determiner Weekly.Com and the Kathy Wray Coleman Online News Blog and Media Network An attorney for suspected serial killer Anthony Sowell has filed a motion for the judge in the case to voluntarily step down due to what he claims was bias against him in an unrelated criminal case that she presided over last year where he represented a since convicted Cleveland RTA bus driver, an unlikely gesture since the sole vehicle under state law for seeking removal of an Ohio Common Pleas Court judge from a case is per the filing of an affidavit of prejudice for review and determination by Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Thomas Moyer. And, research reveals that Moyer rarely grants such affidavits of prejudice, even when it appears that the judge complaine
Cleveland Municipal Clerk of Courts Earl B. Turner, who is Black, continues to falsify the case docket relative to African-American Journalist and Community Activist Kathy Wray Coleman regarding a still pending malicious prosecution case that Coleman says was brought by the City of Cleveland in an effort to silence free speech relative to articles written b y her on issues of public concern pertinent to the Black community. According to Coleman Turner is alllegedly acting at the direction of Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Kathleen Ann Keough, currently a candidate for the Ohio Eighth D strict Court of Appeals in this years election. "Both are corrupt to the bone," said Coleman. "But how a Black man like Mr. Turner can continually tamper with public records in violation of the law under the direction of a runaway judge like Judge Keough is mind boggling."

The protest is Monday, April 19, 2010 at 8 am on the Lakeside Ave. steps of the Cuyahoga County Justice Center, 1200 Ontario St. The endorsement from Black on Black Crime came after African-American Journalist Kathy Wray Coleman, who is also a founding member and a leader of the Imperial Women, lobbied the group for support, citing the following reasons: 1)The judge's action in issuing a warrant rather than the required summons for Black teen Brandon McCloud whom police shot 12 times in his home after the unarmed youth was accused of robbing a pizza man; 2) The judge's all

Congresswoman Marcia Fudge of the 11th Congressional District of Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich of the Tenth Congressional District of Ohio By Kathy Wray Coleman, Editor of the Determiner Weekly.Com and the Kathy Wray Coleman Online News Blog and Media Network After allegedly dodging the N-Word and acts of spitting by the Republican bound anti-health insurance reform Tea Party movement, members of the Congressional Black Caucus joined other members of the House of Representatives to pass the Senate's version of healthcare reforms crafted by Democratic President Barack Obama, the first Black president of the United States of America. With a vote of 219 to 212, where each and every Republican voted no, the House passed the historic bill, which awaits Obama's signature to become law, late Sunday night.

Obama Seeks Overhaul Of No Child Left Behind And Penalties For School District's That Don't Narrow Achievement Gap

U.S. President Barack Obama U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan By Kathy Wray Coleman, Editor of the Determiner Weekly.Com and the Kathy Wray Coleman Online News Blog and Media Network (National and Cleveland, Ohio Area News) President Barack Obama's proposal to Congress to overhaul the federal No Child Left Behind Act would, among other things, penalize school districts for low performing schools and for failing to narrow the academic achievement gap between Black and White children at the local level, an action that could force Ohio's state legislature to address the widespread disparities between rich and poor school districts via a complete revision of a funding formula that now relies heavily on property taxes. "We need to put politics aside and do as a country what is right for children," said U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, during a teleconference with reporters around the sweeping proposal that also calls for states to adopt college level pre

Cuyahoga County Court Of Common Pleas Judge Timothy McGinty Journalist Kathy Wray Coleman From the Metro Desk of the Determiner Weekly.Com and the Kathy Wray Coleman Online News Blog and Media Network The Ohio Eighth District Court of Appeals has sent a lawsuit filed by African-American Journalist Kathy Wray Coleman against Defendant Myrna R. Gill and other defendants in the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas back to the docket of Cuyahoga Judge Timothy McGinty after previously reinstating claims of criminal malicious prosecution and intentional infliction of emotional distress relative to Gill. Case documents reveal that Gill allegedly lied when she claimed that Coleman had merely called her when she allegedly told her not to since 2003 and that prosecutors refused to prosecute Gill after Coleman filed a criminal complaint of alleged falsification with data written by Gill noting that she and Coleman had consulted at least eight times in 2004.

By Kathy Wray Coleman Editor of the Determiner Weekly.Com and the Kathy Wray Coleman Online News Blog and Media Network Cleveland Safety Director Martin Flask and Police Chief Michael McGraph, two members of Cleveland, Ohio's all non-Black top city law enforcement team, told CBS Evening News With Katie Couric that no wrongdoing occurred by police or prosecutors regarding the celebrated murders of 11 Black women on Imperial Ave. at the hands of suspected serial killer Anthony Sowell. "I don't find any direct fought, no," Flask told CBS pursuant to the national news segment that ran Thursday evening. "I know that investigators did a good job." The comments from the top echelon of the predominantly Black major metropolitan city's law enforcement venue fly in the face of a database that reveals that six of the 11 murdered women went missing after December 2008 when police and prosecutors discounted an attempted rape complaint from Gladys Wade as "un
