Re: “Tina Fey Co-Producing New Film About Kent State Shootings

Listening to the Strubbe audio tape recording of what transpired that fatal day (May 4, 1970), one can fairly easily trace the sequence of events.

What prompted the guardsmen to fire appears to be their hearing of pistol shots coming from the crowd of protesters. Now given the hostile environment (they got themselves surrounded) any type of nearby gunfire would certainly invite such a retaliatory response. Someone in a officer capacity ordered the Guard to shoot because they believed their troop was in harm's way. What a bizarre series of events.

All this time, because of a deliberately botched investigation by the FBI (as with JFK, MLK and RFK), we the American people have been duped into thinking the deaths and injuries of 13 students was the result of some rogue element within the Ohio National Guard where in fact it turns out that an undercover spy sent in by the law-enforcement establishment inadvertently (or perhaps purposely) set off this chain of events when he was discovered by a angry few (who also helped set off the tragedy by their actions).

The Strubbe tape is the Zapruder film (film of the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy while his motorcade traveled through Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas) of this historic event; something the "authorities" didn't count on. One has to wonder if there were other audio or even video tapes that recorded this event only to be confiscated by "officials" as they were in Dealey Plaza. All four events have the same common denominator: Do not mess with America's war machine because the consequences can be deadly.

Perhaps one day other students (or faculty) will have the courage to come forward to tell what they know or perhaps tell what they were told not to say. Maybe Kent State will have its own "Deep Throat" hero emerge shortly before his or her death so he or she can reveal what truly happened.

Boy, would this make for a great Oliver Stone film; a movie director who is rewarded financially by taking advantage of the lack of accountability by the United States government. As Colonel Jessup (Jack Nicholson) in "A Few Good Men" shouts "You can't handle the truth," the response by the American people must always be "let us decide what truth we can and cannot handle" otherwise what is the point of the United States Constitution? We must get to the bottom of this tragedy before it is too late. Citizens of this great country: It's up to you.

Re: “The Man With the Plan: Jackson and Reed Square Off in Lone Cleveland Mayoral Debate

Just as with Zack Reed I am not satisfied with the performance of the Cleveland Schools
and its inability to teach our children the basics of reading, writing, speaking and
listening. I am not satisfied with the anemic job growth in Cleveland especially
the blown opportunity of failing to land the Amazon Fulfillment Center which
ended up in North Randal. I am not satisfied with the lack of discipline and
training in our police department resulting in the unnecessary deaths of Cleveland
citizens when it clearly could have been prevented. I am not satisfied when
Cleveland is ranked at the top of the list in poverty while crime is rampant in
our city. I am not satisfied with the catering to owners of sports teams by
Cleveland officials when they know in their own conscience it is the wrong thing
to do.

I believe it is time to get the City of Cleveland moving again. We have stagnated
for the last 12 years under a political philosophy of "it is what it is". Never let
it be said that this was the time the tide ran out on Cleveland but rather was the
time the tide finally came in. Zack Reed is that tide and represents the pro-active
change Cleveland needs during these challenging times. Right now Cleveland is
a ship without a captain {and a rudder as well}. Zack Reed will be that captain
if voters make the right choice on November 7, 2017.

The question before the voters of Cleveland is: are you safer than you were four
years ago?

Re: “Slavic Village Residents Rage Over Dirt Bike Track: "Nobody Here Wants to Hear it"

Whatever happened to using public dollars to promote quality of life that everyone benefits from? Why is it that the residents and business owners of Hyacinth always get the shaft. Hasnt there been enough damage done there already under the guise of community development? Maybe the kids can store their dirt bikes inside all the vacant houses in the neighborhood. Is this proposed dirt bike track part of Mayor Jacksons plan to target $65 million at neighborhoods? And thats the best he can do for Hyacinth? Scrap this idea immediately and put the peoples dollars to better use. After all theres only an infinite number of possibilities...or is there?
