Liam passed away suddenly tonight, Fri., Feb. 10, one month shy of his 40th birthday. His passing shatters not only the hearts and lives of his family and his love--Luna, but those of his friends and his community as well. Gutted. Reeling. Shock. Disbelief. It doesn't seem real. I don't even know...

Food Not Bombs Lake County and East Side CLE

This is infuriating. And it happens everywhere, including local Cleveland stores and restaurants. If you work somewhere this is happening, please reach out to u...s and we will find a way of recovering that food. Also, it probably goes without saying, but if you're in a position of not being able to buy food, please reach out to us and we will do everything we can to get you some. This should never happen to anyone in the world, let alone in a country where we grow more food than we could ever need. It's disgraceful.

Cleveland police are writing a lot fewer tickets and arresting fewer individuals, according to records reviewed by Channel 3 news. And the president of the police union says it's no accident.

"We're not doing it because we don't want to be accused of being unconstitutional. We don't want to be accused of being biased of who we're stopping and why," said Steve Loomis of the Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Union.

Loomis says officers are still responding to radio calls, but are less likely to do what he calls "proactive policing"---taking the initiative to investigate anything that doesn't involve a 911 call.

Records show that ticket-writing has fallen 55 percent from more than 63,000 in 2013 to 29,000 last year.

The number of arrests is also down dramatically. Records show arrests have been dropping each year since 2013---from nearly 34,000 to less than 20,000 last year. A 42 percent drop.

"The bad guys are winning," Loomis said.
Channel 3 news reached out to Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams, but his spokeswoman failed to respond to emails requesting comment.

Cleveland city councilman Zack Reed understands why police are pulling back, citing the same reasons as police---shootings and rioting in Baltimore and Ferguson and the deadly chase and Tamir Rice shooting in Cleveland.

"Police have got to be respected again when they make these traffic stops, not only because of revenue but because of saving lives," Reed said.

The US already used "extreme' vetting way before Trump came along. It takes 2 years for a Syrian refugee to come to the US; and that is after being vetted by the FBI, Depts. of Homeland Security (DHS) , US State, and Defense; plus bio-metric and biographic scanning - then intensive interviews by DHS trained interrogators. #NoWallNoBan

While on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, Supreme Court Justice nominee Neil Gorsuch ruled in 2014 that a corporation, not its owners but the corporation itself, has religious beliefs and rights. The decision allowed the corporation to avoid providing insurance to cover contraceptive costs for its employees. Besides being a classic case of judicial activism, it's simply insane. Corporations are artificial legal creations of government. They were not intended to have inalienable constitutional rights -- including First Amendment religious rights. His nomination should be strongly opposed. Corporations are corporations and people are people. #EndCorporateRule #CorporateRule #Democracy #WeThePeopleAmendment #MovetoAmend
