… the F.B.I. is expert at This [#email recovery]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,October 1st,2016

.. news has come to light that the F.B.I. has had a fair bit of success in recovering emails and other documents from the private email server of Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton . Why am I not surprised …

.. our nation ‘ s Federal Bureau of Investigation is one of the foremost investigative bodies in the world . There are limits to what it can do , but it can do a great deal ..

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. revering documents from an email server is normally easy . Howevery , the Clintons ‘ email server was ” erased . ” Also , the server was changed to put it on a capability to erase documents every 60 days . That makes the task of document recovery far harder . However , it is not impossible …

.. It appears that the FBI has indeed pulled this off . More to come …

… the Brelo Case [#the verdict]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,June 19th,2016

.. Officer Michael Brelo was found not guilty of voluntary manslaughter in the deaths of two Greater Clevelanders the other day ..

.. [h/t — Twitchy.com]..
.. [link] to the tweets / blog post ..

.. this case resulted from a police chase that started in downtown Cleveland . Two perpetrators took off in their car , and one hell of a lot of cops [more than a dozen] took off after them . They were chased eastward , towards the suburbs of East Cleveland and Euclid , and they were finally stopped by stop sticks …

.. what happened next is what has caused such an uproar . The police officers opened fire on the couple ,for whatever reasons I do not know . That couple was unarmed . Officer Brelo jumped up on the couple ‘ s car , and continued to fire at them . Both of them [the couple] died as a result of the altercation …

… I Have Heard of ” El Cheapo , ” but .. [#AZ][#Maricopa County][#polling station]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,April 3rd,2016

. there is being cheap , and then there is …

.. this is [was] insane ..

.. I will use my home state of Ohio as an example . Also , my home county OF Cuyahoga County . Ohio and Arizona are roughly the same size . However , Ohio has 88 counties , while Arizona has only 15 . Just 15 . so , Arizona ‘ s counties are far larger than Ohio ‘ s ..

.. [h/t — Rare.US]..
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. my home county [Cuyahoga County , in Ohio] is 1,250 square miles , but about 65% of that is water [Lake Erie] . Maricopa County [Arizona] , which had all of these problems , has nearly 8,400 square miles . Maricopa has 3 cities [ ] that are of 500,000 people or more , and Phoenix [the state capital , and also the county seat] is nearly 2.5 million people . Phoenix , for example , is eventally going to pass Chicago as our country ‘ s 3rd largest city . That is , if Las Vegas does not catch and pass them first ..

.. in Cuyahoga County , we have about 1,600 voting precints . Yup , the whole county . Each one has a voting station of its very own . I have worked the polls a number of times , so I know that very , very well . Yet some idiot thought that it would be a great idea for Maricopa County to go down from 200 polling stations to just 60 stations ..

.. Just 60 polling stations . How incredibly stupid was that move ..

.. the Feds and the State of Arizona are going to be tripping over themselves to investigate this mess . I don’t blame them , for once . I would trust the state , though , far more than the FEds . Remember the OCs , and the legal poisoning of the Department of InJustice ..

.. you folks need more polling stations in Maricopa County . One whole hell of a lot more . 60 polling stations for a county of roughly [4.2] million people over a land area of about 9,200 sq miles . Un – uh ..

 

.. [p.s.] — when it comes to law enforcement , at LEAST give ” Sheriff joe ” Arpaio a break . Given how damn big Maricopa County really is , he has a lot to do ..

… the Tamir Rice case [#so what happened]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,January 28th,2016

.. simple — no indictment ..

.. no case is this simple . Nor is this one ..

.. [h/t — news.yahoo.com]..
.. [link] to the news story ..

.. it does not mean that these officers [Timothy Loehrmann and Frank Gramback] are out of t the woods . It is far from the tht case . These guys must now face departmental charges [most likely] for their actions . If so , they could face suspension , or , possibly , termination from the force ..

… the Tamir Rice case [#the officers speak]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,December 9th,2015

.. Now , the officers involved in the Tamir Rice case have had their day in court , at least so far . how , you might ask . They have acted to appear before a grand jury . They have also filled out and have made sworn statements , under penalty of perjury . A bit unusual , I admit ..

.. .. these two guys have made a tactical blunder , at the least . Why , do you ask ? ..

.. The officers in this case [Timothy Grambach and William Loehrmann] should have kept their mouths shut . In that way , they could still have invoked their 5th amendment rights against self incrimination . Now , they cannot do so ..

.. [h/t — ]..
.. [link] to the news story ..

.. the officers can be called back before the grand jury . If they refuse to testify , then they can be charged with [at least] civil contempt . Even more so , they could even be charged with criminal contempt , and be indicted and charged for that , instead of the shooting ..

… What has Caused the Stink [#Tamir Rice case]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,October 21st,2015

.. the radicals in the ” Black lives Matter ” movement , that is who ..

.. the Rice family has engaged lawyers and other activists in Cleveland , as well as from around the nation . They have been engaging in endless rounds of agitation . Their target has been Tim McGinty , the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor , who will make the final decision on the case . So far , the Rice family has not been happy , to say the least ..

.. [h/t — DailyCaller.com]..
.. [link] to the blog article ..

.. it has not been for lack of trying that the family has fought with the prosecutor . The Rice family has taken advantage of an obscure Ohio law to bring forth charges , and place them in front of a Cuyahoga county Common Pleas Court judge. The judge ordered charges be brought , but even he cannot make the final decision . the Prosecutor does so ..

.. there is more to come , to be sure …

… Our Quality of Life Issues do Matter [#my hometown]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 2nd,2015

.. I know from my hometown of Lakewood , Ohio ..

.. Lakewood is a city of 54,00 , nestled right next to Cleveland along the shores of lake Erie . It is only 4.8 square miles in size , so it is densly populated . Also , there is little to no industry . But it is a very prime place for people that want to live there ..

.. there is little to no tolerance for the quality of life crimes that NYC is now tolerating . If somebody even thought of trying to pull such a stunt , they would either get a stiff ticket , or , more likely , they would be thrown in jail ..

.. [h/t — CBSnyc.com]…
.. [link] to the news story …

.. the city services are fantastic , especially the schools . However , those services come at a price . The property taxes are extremely high , higher than anywhere else in the county [Cuyahoga Cty , to wit] other than a very chi – chi suburb on the east side of town ..

.. but the people of my hometown expect a lot . They desire a high quality of life , and do pay for it through the nose . Thankfully , throughout much change in the city in the last 50 years , the quality of life has generally remained high …

… Now What is Fitzgerald Thinking ?!?! [#gigagaffe , again]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,August 16th,2014

.. this has not been a fun week for Cuyahoga County executive Ed Fitzgerald …

.. Who ? …

.. [h/t — PowerLineBlog.com]..
.. [link] to the news blog / cartoon ..

.. I am originally from Lakewood , Ohio . I am also a proud graduate of Lakewood High School , Class of 1983 . Fitz was once the mayor of my hometown of Lakewood . He cut that time short when he ran for and won election as Cuyahoga County ‘ s first Executive …

.. apparently , during that time , or much of it , dumb – dumb Fitz did not have a permanent driver license . He was on Lakewood ‘ s City Council when he let his license lapse in 2002 . Stoopid ! …

darcy cartoon (ed fitzgerald)

.. worse , the news came out that two years ago , dumb – dumb was caught in an indiscretion . There was a trade mission that came to Greater Cleveland . One of the delegates was a woman [a legally licensed driver in her home country of Ireland]. Mr. Stupid was caught in a manufacturer ‘ s parking lot , at 4:30am in the morning , of all things , with this lady , when a nearby worker called the police . No , he was not arrested . But , he took her home , and then drove home .. Without a regular driver license . Big Whoops …

.. One of the agencies that the Governor of Ohio is responsible for is the Department of Public Safety . One of those departments that it runs is the Bureau of Motor Vehicles . This agency deals with the issuing of , among other things , driver licenses . Stoopid …

.. now , this …. Fitz writes a publically issued letter about his son ‘ s cancer is still in remission . All in the same week . Why ? …

.. Well , whatever chance this idiot had of winning the Ohio Governor ‘ s race is now G – O – N – E !!!! …

.. — note — the cartoonist [for the Cleveland Plain Dealer] , Jeff Darcy , is a well – known leftie … you can tell how far Fitz has sank when Darcy is picking on him …

… This Could Get Interesting [#federal child dumping]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,June 11th,2014

.. and , no , this is not Sheriff Joe Arpaio getting involved …. yet .

.. what I am talking about is Maricopa County [that means Phoenix] . Phoenix is Arizona ‘ s state capital , so the rest of Arizona ‘ body politic has to be paying attention . Yes , they will pay the bills . They may not want to , but they will do it . Especially in an election year . Most states , including Arizona , have a rainy – day fund . They can dip into this for unanticipated expenses . These kinds of bills sure as hell meet the definition thereof . Maricopa will not be the only one . There will be others …

.. [h/t — AzFamily]..
.. [link] to the story / video …

.. what I am talking about is child abuse . These kids are just being dumped onto the streets of Phoenix (and Maricopa County) . There is plenty of real estate for them to cover . Maricopa County is well over 8,500 square miles in land area . Where I live in Ohio [Cuyahoga County] is 1,250 square miles , and 2/3rds of that is Lake Erie .

.. Also , it is hot as hell this time of year . Average temps during the day in Phoenix are around 105 to 115 degrees , folks . It may be ” dry heat , ” but it is still dangerous as hell , especially to the unacclimated , and most of all , kids …

.. the Maricopa County Attorney is talking about going after the Feds . Specifically , going criminally after the folks who are doing the dumping , and I would suspect , even more . Dumping those kids on the streets in this heat , with no escort or supervision , just to get rid of them , is criminal . It is child endangerment , in my state , in any state …

.. If he has a good working relationship with the US Atty in Phoenix , then the US Atty can go after the folks who are higher up the food chain … and that means all the way up , including , potentially Obama . Yes , POTUS . This is a criminal dereliction of duty , and it is crying out loudly for a federal criminal investigation . A US Atty would be perfect for it , and the visibility would help protect him or her …
