Wouldn’t you want someone who was sent to prison to come back rehabilitated?

Blog Readers: you are going to have to cut and paste this read but it's worth it. 
If anyone knows how I can do a tiny url let me know.
Thanks.

A Perfect Man!

A Perfect Man.


OK the reality is there is no such person. There are plenty of imperfect people and plenty of people who come close to being perfect—but no such thing as a perfect person.

The sad reality is that I spend a lot of time on this blog being critical of Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters. Occasionally, my posts are mean-spirited, yet true. I justify my post as being cheap therapy. Traditional therapy didn’t work for me.

Two years and 280 post later. I am mostly happy with the information that I have brought forth to the community. All of the post have not been about Joe Deters. The post about Deters have been to expose his hate crimes against the community. As my beloved "Grandmabea" would say, "two wrongs (person commits a crime), don’t make a right (person is over prosecuted, sentenced, not given proper representation)."

Back to the original purpose of this post which is to give praise to an awesome person. Attorney David Singleton (OJPC). I admire Singleton because he works tirelessly to reform the criminal justice system. He’s not pro criminal. He’s pro solution. If a person steals a piece of bread from Kroger and store security observes them, attempts to stop them, and the person fights with clerk, and injures clerk--that’s robbery. The said person is then charged and convicted, and  goes to prison for say five years. They get out, they’ve paid their debt to society, but society won’t accept that payment. That’s wrong. In not allowing that person to become a productive citizens (get a job, take care of family, etc), everyone suffers.

So Singleton works for this person—and that makes Singleton close to perfect.

(running out of time end this post for now—more follow-up later.)

Strutz conviction won't go on Deters semen stained resume

update: still working on hamilton county commssioner post (public defenders fund-update soon)


RE- POST
Will Death Penalty Deters go “soft” on accused “saw” killer Strutz?


Who will ever forget how the most dangerous part-time prosecutor, full-time persecutor, in the history of Hamilton County crawled with tail between legs, from the cushy law office of Stan Chesley, from the moistness of the hooker in Cleveland’s labia minora to publicly lynch Anthony Kirkland. Kirkland, a mentally ill black man, was convicted of several heinous murders for which he should never see the light of day. On paper, Deters’ cum stained national resume might indicate a win for the prosecution of Kirkland. However, many of us locals that have fallen victim to a public lynching by Deters, despise his grandstanding and see Kirkland’s conviction as no more than a hate crime.



Why is it that Deters can always create a whacked excuse to explain why he dishes out a double-standard prosecution for black folks?



Deters freely gives out-- Get Out Of Jail Free Cards to wealthy and well-connected white people.



Deters gave Jodi Edwards an upper middle-class white female a GOOJFC after she left her baby in a sweltering hot van. The baby, Jenna Edwards, baked to death. Deters lied when he was later interviewed on 1230 am WDBZ (AKA Cincinnati’s black radio). He claimed that he could not find anything in the law that warrants him charging Edwards for child endangerment and neglect. There was no mention of charging her with murder. Not charging Edwards, disturbed many in the community because when coroner Dr. O’Dell, stuck a thermometer up baby Jenna’s butt, it soared well past 100 degrees. Frustrated callers, expressed their outrage to Deters for not charging Edwards.



The Hamilton County just-us center groans from the weight of black mothers who have left their child unattended in a vehicle. The child is usually not harmed, yet these mothers are arrested and immediately jailed.


Deters engagement in Economic Apartheid



“One such way is through Local Hiring, yet county leadership point to a memo from Prosecutor Joe Deters office, which argues that counties may not require participation of local workers on public works projects.”

Is Deters guilty of Excuse Abuse in accused Strutz’ case





Here’s what Kristan Strutz’s grieving family was told regarding why John Strutz’ could not be charged with the death penalty after he chopped up her body, than piece portioned it out in garbage bags, while their children were at home.





“...due to certain circumstances, he can't face the death penalty.”

What circumstances Deters. You are lying and you know it!



Deters is an un-convicted felon who often tramples the constitution to step on black folks necks.

Hamilton County uses public defender’s money to help Cincinnati Zoo (UPDATE)

This blog post is dedicated to Derrick Jamison, who spent 20 years on "Deters" Death row for a crime that he did not commit.

I attended the HC Commissioner's meeting today. I appreciate the Commissioners (Pepper, Portune, and Hartmann) taking the time to address the issue after I spoke.  They provided me with additional facts about the funds that I wasn't aware of.  In the next couple of days I will update this post with additional facts.

Again, I thank the Commissioners  for addressing my questions.



Why did Hamilton County Commissioners put money allocated to indigent defense into general coffers to help other offices?

The mission of the Hamilton County Public Defender's Office according to their website:

To defend the life and liberty of our clients and to protect their statutory and constitutional rights, by providing zealous, effective, and ethical representation.

That's a powerful statement especially when one considers that if you are charged and subsequently convicted of a crime every aspect of your life is affected: your freedom, your ability to get a job and housing. It affects if you go to jail or prison, and for how long.

The reality is this: blacks are more likely to be arrested, less likely to be released on bail, less likely to see members of their own race in the courtroom and jury box and more likely to be the target of the death penalty. They are more likely to have need for a public defender. Repeat, more likely to have a need for a public defender.

Some people believe that court ordered attorneys or public defenders as they are best known, suck. Do they suck for the sake of sucking, or do they suck because they don't have proper resources to adequately represent their clients? Recent data supoorts the latter.

The Hamilton County Commissioners office put money sent from the state to help with indigent defense into a general fund to help all offices. This makes one wonder if the census money will ever reach the black community. Maybe one has nothing to do with the other, but certainly it's the reason that black folks are always leery to trust the status quo.

To the black community - when people in our community are locked up, overcharged, over prosecuted, over sentenced, less likely to have mitigating circumstances taken into consideration. less likely to be given alternative sentences, not provided with proper representation-- Such factors affects our ENTIRE community. Our communities look like shit. To quote from a recent article, "There is no longer a need for dire predictions, hand-wringing, or apprehension about losing a generation of black boys. It's too late, In education, employment, economics, incarceration..."

To blacks and other communities that don't want your tax dollars going to help the accused (and not yet convicted)  look at it this way, you can choose a fence or an ambulance (read the parable) pay for it on the front end or back end.


We urge the community to attend the Hamilton County Commissioner's meeting this Wednesday at 9:30 am Location 138 East Court St. room 603. Be prepared to express your concerns that the HCPD office does not have funds to operate the office according to constitutional standards.

Also, make phone calls to your local Congress people, to the current commissioner, and the ones running for office. Ask them why money sent from the state to be allocated to indigent defense, has gone elsewhere?

Please make your voice be heard.

Deters is an un-convicted felon who often tramples the constitution to step on black folks necks. (STRUTZ CASE)
