This blog was created to put the spotlight on Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters. Deters uses a different prosecution method depending on one’s race, class or zip code to determine whom to prosecute and how severely. Such was the case with the beloved son AB. The writers at this blog do NOT condone crime,and we often work for solutions. When Deters is no longer the prosecutor in Ohio this blog will continue to exist, bringing attention to the flawed criminal Just-Us system.
Greetings Dear Readers!
The blog finally has a new look. Please bear with us as we work through a few kinks.
And do tell what you think.
We have lots of info-taining post coming soon.
Side note: We are truly sorry about some of the post on this blog. Please note the date when they were written. When you know better, you do better.

University of Cincinnati
cop, Ray Tensing, indicted for murder in the death of an unarmed Samuel Dubose
during what started out as routine traffic stop on July 19th.
Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters held a press conference where he
talked in detail about the incident and released the body cam.
Referring to indicted and terminated police officer Tensing Deters said,
“I’m treating him like a murderer….I could use harsher words.” It was senseless and asinine. He should never have been a police officer.”
Deters further stated, “People want to believe that Samuel Dubose did
something violent against the officer.
He did not.” Interesting, Deters didn't call the officer "soulless" or "unsalvageable."
Now it’s time for me to switch my
citizen journalist hat with my blogger “speak truth to power” hat.
Before I do, please join me dear
blog readers as I take a moment to honor #samdubose.
CAJD extends our deepest condolences to the family who are people of
great faith. Ms. Dubose said that she could forgive the
officer, if he asked for forgiveness.
What in the hellwas
former Officer Tensing thinking (UC President Santa Ono says he has been fired).
Tensing saw this black man in this
older model car, wearing a festive red outfit with matching hat, with a bottle of air freshener in a liquor bottle on the floor.
(for those of you that don't know, they sell liquid air freshener called "smell goods" in liquor bottles, in certain hoods')
A bright light bulb, brighter than the outfit, possibly went off in Tensing’s head.
Tensing’s brain.I hate
my job as a University of Cincinnati cop. I can pop a bullet in this clown’s red hat
will care. His #black life does not
get famous like George Zimmerman or famous and rich like Darren Wilson.
Get a big fat Gofundme check.
hailed as a hero by the law enforcement and the criminal justice community.
Deters will call Dubose an animal.
BECOME THE TOAST OF THE TOWN.
SAD STATISTIC.Black drivers are more likely to be pulled over for minor
offenses like switching lanes without using a turn signal (Sandra Bland),
broken tail light, or no front license plate.
I was going to post a link to where I found
that statistic, but do we really need one?
To know what we know, what we
know, what some of us live each and every day.
Out of touch politicians and leaders
It’s a great big slap in the face
for politicians like Mayor John Cranley and the “leaders”
to call for peace.
Are they fools?
Why would there not be peace as
Ray Tensing has been indicted which is the first step in the healing process.
As a community we recognize that
there is a long way to go from indictment to conviction to prison.
Still, black people won’t rise up,
unless Tensing is not convicted.
Silly politicians and “leaders”
why would people "riot"over an indictment?
The indictment brings a temporary
moment of relief.
Bad move hiring attorney Mark O’Mara
Attorney Mark O’Mara’s claim to fame is that he
got Trayvon Martin’s killer off (George Zimmerman). Now he has rolled in town visiting black
churches and holding black people’s hands with the same hands that held Trayvon
Martin’s killers hands.
And that’s a damn shame.
unsubstantiated rumors that O’Mara’s law firm was able to get some
immediate cash to the Dubose family, and that Bishop Bobby Hilton (Greater Cincinnati Chapter of the National Action Network, president)brokered the
deal taking a fee.
This connection is definitely strange bedfellows as Rev. Al Sharpton (National Action Network)asked on his national radio show on Thursday, why hasn't any activist spoken about the O'Mara connection to #SamDubose.
My concern lies in the fact that any attorney
could have gotten the family money. But
can any attorney see that the indicted Tensing goes from indictment to
Why is O’Mara only handling the civil ($$$) and
not the criminal case for the family?
Ono give Sam Dubose kid’s scholarships
President Ono said something will be worked
out. Don’t work it out. Make it happen.

(like what happened to her son) for people of color, people with modest
incomes, or people who live in certain zip codes.

UPDATE:University of Cincinnati
cop, Ray Tensing, indicted for murder in the death of an unarmed Samuel Dubose
during what started out as routine traffic stop on July 19th. We will give complete update and commentary later today.
**Below blog post date July 26th, Sun***
The mission of this blog is to shine the light on injustice in Cincinnati and across the nation.
We are no longer frequently posting at this blog and instead you can find us at drewmar.org, here.
Like many we are deeply concerned about the lack of transparency in the Samuel Dubose and Sandra Bland cases.
We stand with the Dubose and the circles of the Cincinnati community which have called for the release of the video in order to bring forth transparency and healing to the family and the citizens of Cincinnati. UPDATE: We have learned that the Dubose family has hired Attorney Mark . O'Mara. (The attorney whose claim to fame is that he got the killer of Trayvon Martin off. Yeah, that guy, Geroge Zimmerman.)
Hello Faithful Readers - who still jump on this blog daily and read the over 500 posts
These days CAJD is mostly blogging over at DREWMAR.ORG regarding criminal just-us issues in Cincinnati and around the world.
Last week Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters angered Cincinnatians when he publicly convicted the alleged perpetrators of the 4th of July attack on Fountain Square.
(Remember the case of the black teens accused of beating a white male who yelled racial epithets at them, because he believed they'd stolen his cell phone).
In doing so Prosecutor Deters convicted the accused in the court of public opinion by referring to them as soulless and unsalvageable. Such harsh talk is a move from the old Republican playbook. New Republicans want to talk about things I blog about at the drewmar site.
Tune in to here FBK and T.Nicole discuss this and other hot topics on the radio today (Sat, July 18 at 11 am).

Dear Readers: of the Citizens Against Joe Deters' blog:
We are still around and still trying to figure things out. For now (or forever), this blog is going to stay up, but these days we are blogging more responsibly. Sort of. Citizen journalism is important to the community. It's important to tell our stories, in our voice.
We still have the CAJD blog book - but it's was bumped in order to work on another project. However, it's still in the queue.
For the most part we will blog at drewmar.org. Our latest post is on the hypocritical city of Cincinnati. They want to sweep racism, sexism and all the other "isms" under the carpet until the 2015 MLB Cincinnati baseball guest leave.
