Cleveland of 44120 All Ohio edition no jury for Brelo in 137 is by James w. Wade Iii staff reporter after two years Cleveland police officer Michael Brelo will go to trial april 6 for his role in the deaths of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams following a Chase and shooting on nov. 29, 2012. Cuya hoga county common pleas judge John of Donnell set the Date last week after county prosecutors and defense attorneys argued for months on various issues about the trial including the trial Date. Many in the Black Community has often questioned Brelos motive with him standing on the Hood of the car and firing 49 shots into the car occupied by Russell and Williams. Prosecutor Tim Mcginty filed charges against Brelo last March after his investigation into the shooting. Brelo shot More times than any of the other officers who fired a total of 137 shots killing both Russell and Williams in an East Cleveland school Yard. Brelo and five police supervisors were indicted in May. The supervisors Michael Donegan Patricia Coleman Randolph Dailey Jason Edens and Paul Wilson All were charged with dereliction of duty. Brelo 30, has pleaded not guilty to charges of voluntary manslaughter. If convicted he could face As much As 22 years in prison. Prosecutors claimed that officers had cornered the car in the schools parking lot. In documents filed in common pleas court prosecutors said other officers had stopped firing their weapons at russells car but Brelo jumped onto russells Hood and unloaded the extra shots. All this started after a police officer alleged Russell and Williams shot at him by the Justice Center in Cleveland igniting the Chase. After the bloody style shooting it was found that neither Russell nor Williams had a weapon on them at the time of their deaths. One of Brelos defense attorneys Patrick do Angelo has maintained that Brelo and the others involved did nothing wrong. He has stressed that they All will be vindicated when the evidence is presented. He has said that Russell attempted to drive Over at least three officers at the Middle school. Of Donnell said he plans on waiting until after Brelos trial is completed to set a Date for the supervisors. Brelos trial is expected to take about a month and hear approximately 50 witnesses. Defense attorney Thomas Shaughnessy said Brelos attorneys intend to Call six experts to testily. He said they also might Call some police officers. Since Brelo will not Job set asides in Cleveland and Akron dealt a blow by Ike my Balogu contributing writer Columbus in Cleveland and Akron a pair of major transportation projects just got underway to help improve infrastructures for both municipalities located in Northeast Ohio. For Cleveland it is a $331 million Opportunity corridor project. In Akron it is a whopping $1.4 billion project to repair and update the City a aging sewer system. In both cities these projects Are expected to unleash gobs of jobs which you would think should bring glee to everyone especially politicians elected on promises of fighting for Job opportunities. But it did no to thanks to a recent Ohio Senate measure that conspired with House Bill 53 to try to torpedo the whole thing. So much for fighting for Job opportunities. Apparently there has been a Long history of efforts by some in the Ohio legislature not to allow municipal governments to require that a set aside percentage of jobs created in transportation and related projects go to local residents. And each time democrats have pushed Back against that which is precisely what they did this time successfully. The recent Tiff began after the Ohio Senate approved a controversial measure seeking to prevent local governments from requiring that a minimum number of jobs be set aside for local folks involving projects funded with state or Federal Money. The Senate gained a lending hand when the measure shifted to the Ohio House of representative where a panel after reviewing the matter recommended that the House follow Senate a Lead by adopting a similar posture through House Bill 53. The Bill a primary aim is to push for prohibition where cities would not require a set aside number of local recruits into jobs from government financed transportation related projects. A flabbergasted state rep. Emilia Sykes from Akron fought Back expressing profound concern about the Likely Impact of this measure on african americans. A this restriction could have a dangerous and untold reach into our Urban communities which will disproportionately Impact african americans who remain unemployed at a rate three times higher than the state average a said Sykes. A this could Hurt local communities and jeopardize Ohio jobs and we Haven to seen any information that says Sykes was not about to leave it at that and Hope for the Best. No she went to work to change it. She put together an amendment and successfully pushed it through practically dismantling the prohibition Agenda. Because of her amendment cities Are now allowed to maintain set aside for transportation related jobs funded with government Money. The result for Akron it goes without saying is Sweet. Thirty percent of jobs from the City a sewer and water improvements will go to local residents. It gets better As the target is expected to reach 50 percent by 2018. Sykes obviously got the result she wanted but is still left befuddled and wondering Why anyone would want to get in the Way of helping poor local folks get jobs to better themselves and their families. A this Rush to set up roadblocks to hiring local ohioans is a losing scenario for our Economy a added Sykes. A we should see Job/6c have a jury the hundreds of Cuya hoga county residents summoned for what was to be one of the most High profile trials of the year will not have to be involved.

Wade Iii merger talks heat up Cleveland councilman is ready to Welcome East Cleveland neighbors into his Ward by Kevin a a chill heard general manager if the much debated merger Between East Cleveland and Cleveland was to occur it is assumed that the three Cleveland Council persons whose wards currently Boarder the embattled suburb will be in part and parcel affected by such an Endeavor. Whether As neighbors if the result of a merger was to leave East Cleveland As its own Ward or As actual Cleveland Council representatives of that area Mamie Mitchell Jeff Johnson and Kevin Conwell will sure to be in the Middle of it All.
