Forget the scarlet letter, "I am an idiot" is the new public shaming sign.

Judge Pinky Carr ^ of Cleveland refuses to let people out of her courtroom without making sure they know and tell the world that what they did was blatantly stupid. She's taking some hits for using public humiliation as a form of punishment.

I don't know how effective it is, but have no problem with it for drunks who threaten to kill cops and bitches who drive on the sidewalk and endanger a bus full of school kids because they're in a hurry.

I don't have a problem with that at all. People who do fucked up things deserve to be shamed.

It is funny & I'd be willing to bet that some of those who have been shamed think twice before being bad again. They don't want to find themselves in that position one more time.

They'd never see my face again, I know that much. That is beyond embarrassing.

RE: Why Cleveland is a Shithole

JUST WHY?

Jesus, I think this guy may be in the right legally, but have a hard time personally understanding why anyone would want to encourage or enable drunk driving.

Anyway, here's the story...

[Image: DUI-Checkpoint4.jpg]

A suburban Cleveland man says police violated his First Amendment rights to free speech when they cited him for holding a sign warning motorists to turn if they wanted to avoid a DUI checkpoint.

[Image: 628x471.jpg]
^ Douglas Odolecki, 43, warned motorists with the sign Friday night in Parma that said: "Check point ahead! Turn now!"

Parma police spokesman Kevin Riley said officers cited Odolecki after he refused to remove the "Turn now!" portion of the sign. Officers had previously consulted with city attorneys to determine if Odolecki violated any laws by displaying the sign, Riley said.

Odolecki plans to fight the citation for obstructing official business.

Odolecki has made it his mission to warn motorists about DUI checkpoints. He says he'll go "anywhere I'm called, anywhere I'm needed, anywhere I see injustice happening."

He said he was a "hell-raiser" as a young man, but has stayed out of trouble the last 24 years. He conceded he has animosity toward police officers because they have hassled him numerous times, he says for no reason.

Attorney John Gold is representing Odolecki for free. Gold said police must alert the public in advance of setting up a DUI checkpoint and that motorists are permitted to drive around them, which means Odolecki did nothing wrong when he held up the sign.

RE: Why Cleveland is a Shithole

CLEVELAND PD -- DOJ INVESTIGATION RESULTS

Attorney General Eric Holder announced Thursday that "there is reasonable cause to believe that the Cleveland Division of Police engages in a pattern and practice of using excessive force," after Justice Department investigators examined nearly 600 cases of use of force that occurred between 2010 and 2013.

The investigation in the Cleveland Police Department was launched in March 2013, "following a number of high profile use of force incidents and requests from the community and local government to investigate the [police department]," the report released Thursday said.

The report cited specific incidents, including a January 2011 police chase of an unarmed man, who suffered "kicks to the head" after he had "surrendered to officers and was handcuffed and prone on the ground." None of the officers filed a report on the use of force, and none "were appropriately disciplined for failing to report the use of force."

In another incident from November 2012, the report said, "over 100 Cleveland police officers engaged in a high speed chase, in violation of [Cleveland Division of Police] policies, and fatally shot two unarmed civilians. [Cleveland Division of Police] officers ultimately fired 137 shots at the car, killing both its occupants."

The unreasonable practices the Justice Department found included the following:

-Unnecessary and excessive use of deadly force, including shootings and head strikes with impact weapons
-Unnecessary, excessive or retaliatory use of less lethal force including Tasers, chemical spray and fists
-Excessive force against persons who are mentally ill or in crisis, including in cases where the officers were called exclusively for a welfare check
-Employment of poor and dangerous tactics that places officers in situations where avoidable force becomes inevitable

Justice Department investigators also said the division doesn't adequately review and investigate the use of force by its officers or fully investigate misconduct allegations or identify and respond to patterns of at-risk behavior.

The Justice Department and Cleveland Police Department so far have only agreed to come to an agreement about how to address this problem. They will work out the details of that agreement -- the so-called "consent decree" -- in the coming months, but it will include a requirement for an independent monitor who will oversee necessary reforms.

It all started because a clunker of a car backfired in front of Cleveland PD headquarters and police mistakenly thought it was gunfire.

More than 100 Cleveland police officers in 62 marked and unmarked cars got involved in a pursuit that saw speeds reach 100 mph during the 22-mile-long chase of the unarmed homeless couple.

[Image: 635642642951387989-Brelo-Friday.jpg]

The cop, ^ Michael Brelo, who shot the couple 15 times was acquitted of two counts of involuntary manslaughter by the judge in his bench trial today.

Thirteen officers fired at a car with Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams inside after a long, high-speed chase, but only Brelo was charged criminally because prosecutors said he waited until the car had stopped and the pair no longer a threat to fire 15 shots through its windshield while standing on the hood of the car.

Russell, 43, and Williams, 30, were each shot more than 20 times by police officers and died.

Although no police convictions were obtained, hopefully the DOJ investigation and mandates that came about as a result of this case are prompting Cleveland PD to get its shit together.

On a related note: the decision whether to charge either of the two officers who shot 12-year-old Tamir Rice to death in a Cleveland park nearly six months ago is expected to be handed down any day. So far, protests in Cleveland have been peaceful and contained. If no indictments are handed down in Tamir's death, I hope it stays that way.

I hope so too Jimbone.

And, I very much hope that Cleveland PD and city officials are sincerely and actively working to reform the police department and policing policies.

This weekend, 71 protestors were arrested in Cleveland in response to using pepper spray and failure to disperse while demonstrating against the acquittal of the Cleveland PD officer who shot 49 times (15 at close-range through the windshield) at an unarmed black couple.

No one was reportedly hurt in the weekend protests, no looting took place, and city leaders commented that the protests were largely peaceful.

But, will the protests remain peaceful if the officers involved in the shooting death of 12-year-old Tamir Rice and the asphyxiation death of mentally ill Tanisha Anderson are not charged?

The deaths of 12-year-old Tamir Rice and 37-year-old Tanisha Anderson occurred just eight days apart last November. An investigation by the Cuyahoga County sheriff's department into Tamir's death is nearly finished and ready to be given to county prosecutors to decide whether to pursue criminal charges against the patrolman.

The status of the investigation into Tanisha Anderson's death is unclear. A medical examiner said she died of positional asphyxiation, which means she couldn't breathe, and ruled her death a homicide. City and police officials did not respond to messages Sunday seeking an update on the case.

RE: Why Cleveland is a Shithole

The city of Cleveland and the Justice Department (DOJ) have struck a deal under which Cleveland police will take steps to address a pattern of unconstitutional policing.

The agency and the city will announce the terms of a so-called "consent decree" as early as today. The arrangement creates a court-enforceable agreement detailing steps the Cleveland Division of Police will take to address the pattern and practice of unconstitutional policing in the city. If no agreement had been reached, DOJ could have sued the city to force a change in its policing.

I'm anxious to read the consent decree and the reform policies -- it's about time Cleveland PD is put on the hook legally. Each DOJ investigation of the police force over the last decade (there have been three) has rendered dismal reviews.

I don't think it's a coincidence that CPD will announce the steps it will be taking to address unwarranted police brutality and use of excess force today. Many of the city's residents are pissed that Officer Brelo was acquitted on Friday. I think if the Sheriff's office from the neighboring county announces that its investigation clears CPD Officers Timothy Loehmann and Frank Garmback of any wrong-doing or illegal action in the shooting death of Tamir Rice, there will be a lot of very angry Cleveland residents taking to the streets.

CPD needs to finally publicly admit that it needs to deep reform and what it plans to do about it. Maybe that will help keep Cleveland peaceful, regardless of what the Sheriff's offices announces in regards to the Rice case.

Their conduct was negligent to say the least and murder to say the most. I guess they will be charged with manslaughter. Their defense is a 911 dispatcher failed to relay a caller’s message to the two officers that Rice’s gun was probably fake, and that he was probably a child. The fact they shot the boy 2 seconds upon their arrival and rendered no aid to the child after they shot him is reprehensible.
