Cleveland police officers and detectives fired, including officer Michael Brelo, and six suspended as to the 137 shots deadly shooting of unarmed Blacks Malissa Williams and Timothy Russell.....Not all of the cops that did the shooting were fired....The firings should be vacated the police union says, which likely means arbitration ....A consent decree on police reforms with the city and the DOJ remains....Community activists renew the call for Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty, who shielded 12 of 13 the cops that did the shooting from criminal charges, to be voted out of office this year, and Congresswoman Fudge wants McGinty gone too.....Common Pleas Judge John O'Donnell acquitted Brelo of manslaughter charges....By editor-in-chief Kathy Wray Coleman

Cleveland police cars chase two unarmed Blacks from downtown Cleveland to neighboring East Cleveland the night of Nov . 29 , 2012. The 23 -minute car chase ended in the parking lot of Heritage Middle School and culminated in 13 non- Black Cleveland police officers firing a total of 137 bullets at Malissa Williams 30, and Timothy Ray Russell, 43, the driver of the 1979 Chevy Malibu. Both Russell and Williams were Black, and both died at the scene.  Some 105 police officers and 64 police cruisers participated at some level in the deadly chase.

Congresswoman Fudge endorses Mike O'Malley over Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty, and the county Democratic party executive committee, on behalf of the party, will decide who is officially endorsed for county prosecutor by the party on Dec 17, if anybody.... State representative Bill Patmon calls the city ward leaders endorsement of O'Malley a rejection of McGinty by his own party....Community activists want McGinty out of office, says Art McKoy, and Charles E. Bibb Sr. says that he backs Fudge' s endorsement of O'Malley 100 percent...McGinty's fall from grace follows his prejudicial handling of the Tamir Rice Cleveland police murder case, his illegal adoption of unconstitutional office policies to protect police that kill unarmed Blacks, his interoffice conflict, his conflict with common pleas judges, the Brelo verdict, and his public harassment of Rice's grieving mother....Some residents of Cleveland Ward 1 who are also on the executive committee yesterday overwhelmingly decided against McGinty at a meeting led by Ward 1 Councilman Terrell Pruitt and also attended by Nina Turner.....But Ward 1 did not embrace O'Malley's candidacy at yesterday's meeting....Some Black elected officials say that O'Malley is not much different than McGinty when it comes to the Black community and overzealous and unfair prosecutions and otherwise, but is the lesser of the two evils....By Cleveland Urban News.Com Editor-in-Chief Kathy Wray Coleman
