Re: “Cleveland March Planned in Solidarity with Women's March on Washington

You mean 250,000 women!!! And WE didn't elect a leader - the bigots of all stripes elected their Grand Dragon.
Why do bigots always have to try to hurt other people? Sign of insecurity!

Re: “Cleveland March Planned in Solidarity with Women's March on Washington

Actually, there was an even larger political statement made a few months ago. Over 100 million people took time out of their day to vote in the shining beacon of democracy, and elected a new leader fort the country! I'm so glad these strong women will be celebrating the democracy of America! I look forward to seeing all 25 of them gather in Public Square.

Re: “Listen to Martin Luther King Jr.'s 1967 Speech at Glenville High School

BBC Radio 4 has an interesting 38-minute feature entitled The Green Book, which brings "The Negro Motorist Green Book" out of the dusty pages of U.S. history. Alvin Hall traveled the country to tell the story of Harlem postal worker Victor H. Green and his yearly manual (published from 1936 to 1964) that listed hotels, restaurants, service stations and tourist homes which would serve African Americans. The Call and Post advertised in the guide, which eventually had sections on Bermuda, Mexico and Canada.

Re: “Listen to Martin Luther King Jr.'s 1967 Speech at Glenville High School

I would like to think that Mr. Butts.. the typing teacher
May have recorded that tape. He used a reel to reel to
Tape the March on Washington for the students to listen to.. I was an art student during that time and we had many wonderful teachers that imparted so much to us
As well as Mrs Evans our Art Teacher who also taught
Black History. I am so happy to know it was recorded
And survived all these years!

Re: “The Fashion Maven: Nichole Reed

Fashion week Cleveland is a joke! Where is the fashion? Every year it's an overpriced party with some nice models wearing the clothes you would find on a department store mannequin. Elain has talent so why isn't this better?

Re: “Ohio is Trying to Obtain a Drug That Would Reverse the Effects of a Lethal Injection

I am sick of these reindeer games over the drugs used in a lethal injection.

This is not a honest basis on which to debate the death penalty, which is an important controversy that deserves attention.

The legislature should amend the laws to provide for a firing squad.

What else could it be but breaking the 2016 mark with another new record in 2017?

Re: “Documents: Cleveland Announces Disciplinary Charges Filed Against Officers in Tamir Rice Case

I know Garmback acted in a way that made Tamir's homicide almost inevitable. Not that I excuse Loehmann for executing a child. But yes, of the three letters above, one is approximately correct.

What kind of city is this, that black children's lives are less valuable than stupid, racist, inept men's jobs -- jobs that we all agree none of these three are qualified to hold?

If the city and county won't prosecute this murder, why won't the state or the feds? How can these crimes go unpunished in America?

I will never, ever understand.

Re: “25-Year-Old Fairview Park Man Indicted by Feds for Tweeting Threat About Donald Trump

A guy sent an e-mail about wanting to know how to poison his evergreens. He wanted to remove the shrubbery around his house, as it was a lot of work to take care of, and because it also provided cover for thuggery...possible burglaries or muggings.

He planned to remove them after they were dead, and create flowerbeds in their place.

He got a visit from The Suits, after writing "The first thing we do is kill all the bushes."

True story.

What about the dispatcher who didn't relay all of the information to the officers?
