Re: “A Man Who Dresses in Medieval Garb and Walks Around Downtown is a Strange Ranger. But is He Dangerous?

Antifa is anti-fascist?

Yes, that's what they tell us, but these idiots are nothing more than re-branded anarchists who dress like ISIS terrorists, and terrorize and physically attack anyone who dares to hold an opinion different than theirs.

The next time you mentioned this group, you might want to use a different spelling: antiFA (that's anti First Amendment).

Allowing this guy to explain his batshit, bigoted views in a fairly well-read regional publication is frankly irresponsible. Who cares about the esoteric crusader notions behind his loony toons ideology? He's a dangerous, bigoted fascist trying his best to instigate violence. Nuff said.

As someone who's experiences are mentioned in this article, and as an aspiring journalist myself, this article is disappointing.

Congratulations, you revealed the identity of someone who did not wish for their government name to be attached to social justice and activism, and glorified the Cleveland Chainmail Fascist.

You just made this idiot feel special and validated his presence harassing people in CLE. nice

Re: “A Man Who Dresses in Medieval Garb and Walks Around Downtown is a Strange Ranger. But is He Dangerous?

Happy for the criticism, @ArthurBlakeyII. What questions would you want answered? Or what sort of research do you think would have enhanced the piece? The biggest narrative question for me (and for a lot of people, I thought) was: Who is this guy? That's what I tried to answer. I'm sensitive to the idea that giving hateful speech a platform is bad. But it's also important, for me as a reporter, to hear his perspective, especially if I don't agree with it.

@ClevelandObscene. I hope questions like the one you referenced aren't misunderstood. In our conversation, Levie was describing "groups of young men" in the same coded language the some folks use to talk about African-Americans. I wanted to be absolutely clear about what he was talking about.

The person that had their tweet featured is ridiculous. They can't even speak proper English and want to decide the fate of someone else, LOL. Anifta should be the one "taking outta the gene pool", LOL.

Re: “A Man Who Dresses in Medieval Garb and Walks Around Downtown is a Strange Ranger. But is He Dangerous?

Seems like a lot of this article has not been thoroughly researched and much is opinionated, also by giving this guy a platform to his hatred and his attacks on gays, Muslims and blacks. This sounds more like a promotion of the man than it is an exposure. Where are your priorities Scene?

Re: “Unexpected Winners and Losers in Cleveland Mayoral Forum

I agree with most of this assessment, though I'd bump Johnson down a step and Chrostowski up a step. Johnson was sometimes talking while the other candidates were answering, and even had to have a couple questions repeated. He had an air of arrogance about him, and I couldn't decide whether his messaging--most of which I agreed with--was just as much about his ego as it was about results for Cleveland residents. Indeed, Chrostowki was a clear outsider in terms of political experience, but in addition to coming across as sincere, I thought he projected competence, too. He may or may not be the best candidate, but he did his homework on the issues and he came across like a guy who has had success with large-scale, serious, economic and social justice projects, and will work hard from day one.

This guy has literally physically attacked people, and you're not only giving him a platform, you're assassinating the character of people trying to stop him from physically attacking gays and muslims. I've always expected better from you, Vince Grzegorek.

"He described questionable interactions he'd had with "groups of young men" who he said "looked like they were up to no good."

"Are you talking about black people?" Scene asked"

You people are despicable.

Any suggestion that Antifa is dangerous is ridiculous. They get bad press, but their entire purpose is to fight fascism.

An article about Antifa and how dangerous they are might be more appropriate.

Re: “Lakewood Residents Pushing Back Against Pit Bull Ban

Studies have shown that when it comes to dog bites and attacks media reports on them differently. Within a one month time frame, three dog attacks were looked at regarding their media coverage. A Labrador Retriever and a mix breed attack were each reported in one article in the local paper where the incident occurred; a fatal attack on a child by a mix breed was reported on by the media twice in the local paper; and a non-fatal pit bull attack on an owner was reported in over 230 articles, including major television networks (Denver Post). With the media hype surrounding pit bulls there leaves very little room for society to judge this breed fairly and without stereotyping..

Many media reports regarding injuries and fatalities caused by pit bulls will produce stories regarding attacks that were unprovoked and came out of nowhere. Any breeder will agree that a pit bull does not have a natural instinct to kill or harm a human; they become aggressive and may attack when the owner forsakes their own responsibilities to the dog. All dogs, especially the pit bull breed, need a 'pack structure' and without that structure, the rank issue becomes important and danger can arise from the dog. According to Leerburg Kennel, a pit bull that has unprovoked attacks is a result of irresponsible owners. A dangerous pit bull does not have a guardian/owner that has established the pack structure or a guardian has not trained their dog or they do not have control over the area or environment in which their dog has access to;, or they do not socialize their dog.

Re: “Lakewood Residents Pushing Back Against Pit Bull Ban

For the expert's posting long lists of undocumented dog bite attacks with no supporting evidence other than their Google searches and imagination: There is no uniform dog bite reporting procedure, nor is there a national agency charged with collecting such data. Dog bite data is collected and reported haphazardly. Animal control departments, hospitals, law enforcement agencies, and state health agencies may all collect different types of data, or none at all.

First, not all dog attacks are covered by the media, and it is unclear what criteria is being used by the news media to decide whether or not to report a particular attack. If all dog bites were reported, approximately 915 dog bites would be featured in the news every day. To date, no one is tracking all of these dog bites.

Second, the news media frequently misidentifies breeds and types of dogs. Breed identification is next to impossible, especially in the case of mixed breed dogs (the majority of dogs in the U.S.). It often consists of a wild guess based on appearance, not DNA testing or any truly scientific method of identification. Journalists may record a dogs breed based on statements from a victim, a neighbor, an animal control officer, a police officer, or a dog ownernone of whom may be experienced with breed identification. Journalists may also make a wild guess based on their own visual assessment of the dog. News media also tends to identify dogs as pit bulls even when they are not pit bulls. Corrections, if they are made, are usually obscure. Thus, breed-specific data from studies that rely on media sources to identify breeds must be considered non-scientific and unreliable.
