Deters: Showing Video To Jessica Kim Made It Public Record

Sonny Kim aka Karate Kim

The Cincinnati Black Blog is determined to gain public release of public video records being held by the city of Cincinnati and Hamilton County Prosecuting Attorney Joseph T. Deters (known here as "Dirty Deadbeat Dad Deters") that show Cincinnati police officers shooting Black people.

We want the video that shows cops gunning down Trepierre Hummons. And the video showing Orlando Smith pumping bullets into Dontez O'Neal and all other videos showing corruption and/or wrongdoing in CPD.

WCPO's Tanya O'Rourke​ -- a self-described journalist -- did an interview with Deters. At the end of the 18+ minute interview, Deters said this about the Trepierre Hummons (and CPD officer Sonny Kim) video and why he refuses to release it to the public:

"We would be waiving our legal position that (the video) it's not a public record (if we showed it to someone not in law enforcement)."

Everybody who's paying attention knows the video has already been shown to Sonny Kim's widow, Jessica Kim. (See, "Sonny Kim's widow pleads: Don't release video".)

Under Ohio law, the police dash camera video was already a public record before it was shown to Mrs. Kim. (See, Ohio Revised Code Section 149.43.) But if there was any doubt about whether the video was a public record that must be made available for inspection and copying, Deters, by his own admission, acknowledged in the interview that once the video was shown to Mrs. Kim it definitely became a public record.

We pledge to you, our faithful readers, that we will not stop pursing all legal avenues to obtain all public videos.

Open Letter To Cincinnati's White Media Explaining Why We've Released 911 Audio of Cops Gunning Down Trepierre Hummons

Rick Green. Leader of Cincinnati's White Media.

To Cincinnati's White Media:

The Cincinnati Black Blog has obtained the audio of a call to 911 made by Phyllis Miller. The audio seems to capture Cincinnati police officers gunning down Trepierre Hummons. We know that you have a copy of this 911 call. Since you, the lazy white racist so-called mainstream media in Cincinnati, won't release the audio, we have done so.


For several weeks, #BlackLivesMatter and other concerned citizens have pushed white media outlets, including The Cincinnati Enquirer and WCPO, to ask the city of Cincinnati for video captured during the fatal encounter between Cincinnati Police Officer Sonny Kim and Hummons.

The Cincinnati Black Blog recently learned that you were provided with the 911 call from Ms. Miller weeks ago and made a decision not to release the call.  We also learned that some of you FINALLY got around to asking the city if you could pretty pretty please have the accompanying video. So far, the city has refused to release the video but at least one of the videos has been shown to Sonny's widow -- Jessica Kim.

When the white media wanted to bring down African American Hamilton County Juvenile Court Judge Tracie Hunter, you banded together, smeared Judge Hunter, and sued her for allegedly failing to follow Ohio's Sunshine Laws. We note with great sadness that the white media has not sued the city to obtain videos that quite possibly show Cincinnati cops gunning down Mr. Hummons.

The Cincinnati Black Blog has notified the city of our intent to take action on or after Aug 17, 2015 if they have not released all videos from all CPD vehicles that responded to the scene on June 19.  We demand to know the truth!


The Cincinnati Black Blog wants to know if politicians and top city bureaucrats lied to the public. We want to know if the city destroyed records and/or obstructed justice.

We are concerned that the city's top politicians, including Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley, along with leading bureaucrats, including City Manager Harry Black and Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell may have viewed the videos and know the truth about what really happened to Trepierre Hummons but opted to intentionally lie to the public to make Sonny Kim appear to be some hero -- not an abusive instigator with a record of brutalizing a handcuffed citizen with a painful Karate Kick In The Balls!!!!!

Here's what The Enquirer wrote about Kim before they became invested in pretending he was some kind of saint (see, "Police probing police absolve themselves"):

According to two witnesses - Hamilton County Sheriff's Sgt. David Turner and Corrections Officer Jerome Richmond - Cincinnati Police Officer Sonny Kim kneed Mr. Crane in the genitals as he exited a holding cell. The blow was so severe it caused Mr. Crane, who was already handcuffed, to double over in pain, the witnesses said.
The two witnesses immediately reported the physical abuse to a superior, who then referred it to the Cincinnati Police Division. 
In a written report, internal investigators concluded Officer Kim used excessive force, failed to file a use-of-force report, and was not truthful with them. So Officer Kim was sent to a predisciplinary hearing.
That's where Capt. David Stanley, communications section commander, who was hearing officer on the case, stepped in. He overturned the investigators' findings, noting "on one hand there where two jail guards who claim they saw the groin strike, on the other hand there were two Cincinnati police officers who say it never happened." 

Capt. Stanley noted that during the hearing, Officer Kim "looked directly in my eyes as he told his story. His body language indicated openness and honesty. He gave me no reason to doubt his statements." 
Sonny Kim appears to have been an abusive, well-connected, professional liar. CPD should've weeded him out years ago.

If Cranley and his hired hands aren't lying to the public about what Sonny Kim did to provoke Trepierre Hummons, why won't they release all videos?


The Cincinnati Black Blog is well aware of the city's determination to present itself as a model of police reform. The city never misses an opportunity to tell America about the Collaborative Agreement and Memorandum of Agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice. You in the white media let them get away with this deception despite knowing that dozens of clauses in both agreements are not being enforced.

For example, the city is required to equip all police vehicles with working video cameras. Council member Amy Murray has reportedly appeared on several talk radio programs and stated that up to 50% of all video cameras installed on CPD vehicles either don't work at all or they regularly malfunction.  The Cincinnati Black Blog searched the Clerk of Council's official "Council online" repository of all motions filed and found no motion or other communication from Murray on this issue. It appears Murray has done absolutely nothing to address this problem.

Murray isn't the only city leader that knows about this problem but who hasn't done anything to address it. Mayor Cranley, Black, Blackwell, and no other member of Council have fixed the problem.

Black activists who take credit for bringing about the agreements -- Damon Lynch III, Iris Roley, Dwight Patton -- and their white lawyer Ambulance Al Gerhardstein, et al. are now in bed with Cranley and the city. They are in line to get at least $8 Million to fix a few swimming pools and slave-style huts on property owned by Lynch and his church. So, Lynch & Company have millions of reasons to remain silent while the city kills Black men and disregards and violates crucial portions of Collaborative I.


Per the agreements, not only must all CPD vehicles have a working video camera, CPD policy requires mandatory activation for all dangerous calls. Sonny Kim was called to respond to a report of a man with a gun acting belligerently. Where is that video? The city seems to suggest that there is no video from Sonny Kim's vehicle. The U.S. Department of Justice has been asked to investigate this phenomena. Why do video cameras mysteriously malfunction when they might possibly show cops engaged in wrongdoing? Why haven't Chief Blackwell or City Manager Black done anything to fix this problem. When cops gunned down Dontez O'Neal, the city claims the video malfunctioned. Witnesses disagreed with the official story told by CPD and CPD officer Orlando Smith. Where is the video from the shooting death of Quandavier Hicks in Northside? If the city's politicians and bureaucrats won't stop corruption in CPD, and the DOJ won't intervene (they've been made aware of these problems but haven't done anything to address them) the media should step up, ask questions, and report findings.


In a story recently published by The Enquirer, Sharon Coolidge wrote: "The Cincinnati police investigation is ongoing. Immediately after the shooting, department officials gave a brief account of what happened. But plenty of questions remain. It's unclear how many shots were fired, who fired first, how Kim died and where a probation officer, who has never been named, plays into what happened."

There are many more questions.

What investigation? Who's investigating? Who or what is being investigated?

The 911 caller, Phyllis Miller, says shots were fired before she placed her call to 911. During the call, approximately 15 shots are fired. How many bullets could Trepierre Hummons have had to fire? Did cops keep firing at Hummons after he was out of ammunition? If Hummons had no ammunition left did he still pose a threat to anyone? If Hummons posed no threat to anyone why did cops keep pumping bullets into him? Even if cops were angry or distraught about seeing Kim wounded and bleeding, does that justify them firing bullets into Hummons once he posed no further threat? Why wasn't a mental health team dispatched to assist with someone reportedly acting belligerently? Why, if white people are allowed to openly carry guns into Black neighborhoods and the city law department instructs cops not to bother them, was Sonny Kim bothering Hummons in the first place? Was Hummons executed? If Hummons' mother pleaded with the cops to let her talk to her son why did Kim escalate the situation by pulling out a Taser Gun and pointing it at Hummons -- a threat to use 50,000 volts of potentially lethal force? Is it true that cops detained or otherwise took Hummons' mother into police custody immediately following her witness the cops pump dozens of bullets into him and threaten her? Is that threat why she made earlier statements that seemed to justify the cops' actions?


For years, justice advocates fought for civilian oversight of CPD. There currently exists a Citizens Complaint Authority. The city, in violation of law, has understaffed and essentially neutered CCA. The law requires the city to employ at least FIVE professional police investigators. The law requires CPD to immediately notify CCA when the cops shoot a civilian. Once notified, the law requires CCA's executive director to immediately dispatch one of CCA's professional investigators to the scene of the shooting. Once there, the professional investigator is required to monitor all CPD interviews with cops and civilians. In addition, the CCA professional investigator is mandated to begin an independent investigation.

The city refuses to follow the law and now has three professional investigators -- not five as required by law.

CCA isn't doing any of the things required by Collaborative Agreement I Law. If CCA was functioning properly, the cops wouldn't be able to hide, tamper with, or destroy evidence, including videos. What happens now is once a cop shoots someone, a FOP representative and "fixer" from Blackwell's command staff (normally James Whalen), arrives at the scene and huddles with the cop(s) doing the shooting. They coordinate the cop's story. In the case of Quandavier Hicks, the city manufactured several stories before finally deciding on one and sticking with it. CCA doesn't intervene, they don't monitor all interviews, they don't conduct their own independent interviews. The agency is dysfunctional. In recent emails, representatives from the city's law department have acknowledged that CCA is not following the law. To them, this doesn't appear to be a problem.


The city has been put on notice that their continued failure to release all videos from all CPD vehicles on June 19 that show what happened to Trepierre Hummons and Sonny Kim by Monday, August 17, 2015 AND bring CCA into compliance with Collaborative I will result in action being taken against them to force their compliance.

You in the white media could have and should have released the 911 call without Phyllis Miller's name and telephone number. You could have used your technology to edit her name. You chose to sit on the information which forced The Cincinnati Black Blog to release the unedited 911 call. Shame on you for ignoring this story and all the other issues discussed above.

EXCLUSIVE: Audio of Cincy Cops GUNNING DOWN Trepierre Hummons

The lazy white racist so-called mainstream Cincinnati media has a copy of the call made by Phyllis Miller to 911 but the Elitist Media doesn't think you, our faithful readers, should hear it. The call was made during the gun battle started by dead Cincinnati Police Officer Sonny Kim that resulted in his death and the death of Trepierre Hummons.

The Cincinnati Black Blog questions the official version of events provided by Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley, City Manager Harry Black, Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell, and outgoing Assistant Chief James Whalen (known on this blog as "The Fixer & Dirty Trickster").

The Cincinnati Black Blog is conducting an investigation of the shooting. We have demanded that the city provide us with a copy of all audio and videos from the scene. The city has thus far refused to provide us with these public records. We are prepared to take legal action against the city if they continue refusing our lawful request.

We have examined the 911 audio. We count FIFTEEN SHOTS FIRED.  We have many questions. Here are a few.
  • How many bullets could Trepierre Hummons have possibly had?
  • Why did the cops keep firing if Tre Hummons was out of ammunition?
  • If Mr. Hummons had no more bullets did he pose a threat to anyone?
  • If Mr. Hummons posed no threat to anyone why did the cops keep pumping bullets into him?
  • Was it legal for Cincinnati cops to fire bullets into Mr. Hummons once he posed no further threat?
  • Did Cincinnati cops kill Tre Hummons because they were angry he defended himself and killed Sonny Kim (if that's what happened)?
  • Was Tre Hummons the victim of a revenge killing or public execution?
  • Did Trepierre Hummons' mother witness the cops gun down her son in broad daylight right in front of her eyes?
We have many more questions.

For now, we offer you the 911 audio.

(We don't normally do this, but we apologize to Phyllis Miller for including her name and telephone number. We do not have the ability to edit the 911 call to shield you.)

Iris Roley Helped Get Sam Dubose KILLED!!!


Mr. Dubose was unarmed when he was shot IN THE HEAD by University of Cincinnati cop RAY TENSING.

Why didn't Tensing use a Taser to subdue Dubose instead of a firearm to execute him?

There’s a reason.

In 1997, LORENZO COLLINS -- a 25-year-old man with a history of mental illness -- escaped from UC Hospital. Collins ran. He was captured. 15 cops surrounded him. He panicked. He picked up a rock. Two of the cops – one from CPD and one from UC – both fired twice, hitting Collins three times. Mr. Collins died.

Law Professor KEN LAWSON was practicing law in Cincinnati in 1997. He took the case. Lawson and city activists fought to change procedures for dealing with the mentally ill. We got a mental health response team. We also pushed for alternatives to firearms. We forced UC and CPD to put Tasers on cops. Tasers aren't NON-LETHAL but they are LESS-LETHAL than guns.

In 2011, a UC cop deployed a Taser and killed someone related to Nurse Iris. As part of a settlement, UC agreed to pay $2 million to Nurse Iris' family and suspend the use of Tasers by its cops. Nurse Iris' family was represented by greedy, blood-sucking,  ambulance-chasing lawyer AL GERHARDSTEIN. As far as we here at The Cincinnati Black Blog can tell, Gerhardstein never went back to get Tasers or some other less-lethal weapon for UC cops.

The Black community has a bad case of Political Syphilis!!! Syphilis leads to PARALYSIS, NUMBNESS, BLINDNESS, and Dementia. During the infamous Tuskegee Experiment, Nurse EUNICE RIVERS helped trick Black men into believing they were being treated for syphilis. They weren't. They were being studied to see the effects of untreated syphilis in the Negro male. Cincinnati's Nurse Iris is part of the problem, not the solution. Our community needs to get treated for this infection before it's too late.

After 15 years, the reforms we gained after Mr. Collins' death and as a result of Collaborative Agreement I should have been expanded. This should have happened long ago.

- UC cops patrolling the streets and neighborhoods in the city should be subjected to Collaborative Agreement I Law.

- A mental health team should've been sent to Madisonville when TREPIERRE HUMMONS was allegedly acting like a man with mental health issues. Mr. Hummons should NOT have been gunned down like a mad dog in the middle of the street -- right in front of his mother!

- The Citizen Complaint Authority should have subpoena power. Right now, CCA is dysfunctional. They don't exercise the powers they already have. The problem is no one can push for full staffing of CCA or pressure them to do their jobs with Nurse Iris, her greedy ambulance-chasing lawyer and handler Al Gerhardstein, and the rest of the $58 Million Shakedown Schemers attacking you. We believe CCA's new permanent executive director, KIM NEAL, deserves a chance to prove herself and whip CCA into shape. We will keep you, our faithful readers, informed.

Ban Bestiality In Ohio. Stop Dwight Patton From Sexing Goats!!!


During his WDBZ radio talk show, Lincoln Ware discussed the issue of BESTIALITY. Apparently it is LEGAL TO HAVE SEX WITH ANIMALS IN OHIO.

Jahuti (slave name Dwight Patton) called in. Dwight has been having a very public nervous breakdown. Last week he admitted doing all sorts of terrible things -- smoking crack, beating women, and more. Some of these admissions have been documented on our Founder & Publisher's personal Facebook page. Some of the allegations have been published here on The Cincinnati Black Blog.

We wondered if today would be the day Jahuti CONFESSED he didn't just live with a goat, and slit the goat's throat in front of a group of TERRORIZED LITTLE KIDS. People have said he had a sexual relationship with that goat. (This may have been during the time he was smoking crack cocaine.) We thought Jahuti might finally come clean so he can move on. He came close.

Jahuti admitted he considers himself a "BEAST". The Bible says: "For as a man thinketh in his heart, SO IS HE." BRUCE JENNER thinks in his heart he is a woman named Caitlyn so he is; RACHEL DOLEZAL thinks in her heart she is Black, so she is. If Jahuti/Dwight Patton thinks in his heart he is a "beast" then he is.

As long as Bestiality is not against the law in Ohio, we guess Jahuti feels it is no one's business if he has sex with another beast.

We Disagree. And We Strongly Urge You, our faithful readers, to Hide Your Pets!!!

Did Dwight Patton Steal $100K?

Most of you -- our faithful and highly educated reader -- have no idea who Dwight Patton is so we'll tell you.

Patton is credited with single-handedly destroying the Cincinnati Black United Front after Rev. Damon Lynch III turned leadership of the group over to him and Iris Roley (known on this blog as Nurse Rivers). 

After he ran all the members away, Patton began to publicly attack Rev. Lynch and CBUF's Chief of Staff, Juleana Frierson, accusing them of stealing money.

For the last few weeks, Patton has been telling a story on WDBZ/The Buzz -- Cincinnati's Black talk radio station -- that we at The Cincinnati Black Blog believe deserves addressing. Patton says he was chosen to hand-deliver a $700,000.00 check to lawyers hired to represent CBUF for work done on what is now known as Collaborative I. The problem is, according to numerous news reports at the time (and court records) the lawyers only received $600,000.00. (For example, see this and this.)

If Patton is telling the truth, from the time he was trusted to deliver funds to CBUF lawyers to the time he arrived, ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS ($100,000.00) DISAPPEARED.

Judge Susan Dlott appointed CBUF to represent all Black people in the city. On behalf of Black people, The Cincinnati Black Blog wants to know WHAT HAPPENED TO THE $100K?

Deters Pay-to-Play Scheme Sent to Ohio Ethics Commission

Who's The Crook? No, Dirty Joe. It's You!
Joseph Theodore Deters is a crook!!!

Kimball Perry (known on this blog as KimNOBalls), Dan Horn, Jody Barr and the rest of the lazy, local, white, racist, so-called mainstream media protects disgraced former Ohio Treasurer and current Hamilton County Prosecuting Attorney Joe Deters. Because we believe you, our faithful readers, have a right to know The Truth, we bring you this Exclusive Cincinnati Black Blog report, explaining how Deters is BREAKING THE LAW by using his office to punish his political enemies and funnel money to his buddies.

Not so long ago, Deters was one of the most powerful Republicans in the state of Ohio. He was the elected Ohio Treasurer. Insiders thought he was on track to become Governor of Ohio or maybe even President.

Joe got greedy. His former chief of staff and fund raiser Matt Borges was indicted and pled guilty to participating in a pay-to-play scheme. The Special Prosecutor considered indicting Deters for his role in the pay-to-play scandal but Deters ultimately evaded justice. The scandal forced Deters to flee Columbus and hide out in Cincinnati. (State Republicans have made Borges Executive Director of the Ohio Republican Party!)

Evidence presented to the Ohio Ethics Commission today supports the idea that Deters (who is known on this blog as Dirty Deadbeat Dad Deters) is personally involved in another pay-to-play scheme -- this time it involves shifting money from Hamilton County taxpayers to the deadbeat's benefactors. This pay-to-play scheme could result in criminal charges being brought against Hamilton County's top law enforcement officer.  Any investigation might also implicate Cincinnati lawyers, county commissioners, Cincinnati judges, and even Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Maureen O'Connor.

Deters is accused of using his office to bring bogus criminal charges against his political enemy, Hamilton County Juvenile Court Judge Tracie M. Hunter.  In addition to being a lawyer and elected judge, Hunter is a Christian minister and Church pastor. In the epic battle between good and evil, Tracie Hunter is one of the good guys.  Dirty Joe had criminal charges filed against Judge Hunter in retaliation for her filing a grievance against him with the Ohio Supreme Court's Office of Disciplinary Counsel.

Perhaps worse than misusing his office and power to pursue politically-motivated and vindictive charges against Judge Hunter, Dirty Joe's hand-picked Special Prosecutors gave him lots of money and gifts before getting appointed. They both contributed to his political campaigns. They both gave him personal gifts. In return for gifts and money, Dirty Joe used his office to give Robert Scott Croswell II and Merlyn Shiverdecker a no-bid contract. So far, that contract has resulted in County Commissioners Todd Portune, Greg Hartmann, and Chris Monzel taking $500,000 from taxpayers and giving it to Croswell and Shiverdecker. (For more information, read "SCANDAL! Deters Steered $500K Tax Dollars To His Divorce Lawyer's Firm.")

We want to make sure we don't move on too fast. We want you to get the point. Croswell and Shiverdecker both gave Dirty Deadbeat Dad Deters money and gifts. In return for the cash and prizes, Dirty Joe used his office to get them a no-bid contract. That contract has already resulted in payments of $500,000.00. Yes, A HALF MILLION DOLLARS. And it's YOUR money.

Dirty Joe's wife, Melissa Hendon Deters has had all she can take so she's filed for divorce! Deters is represented in his divorce by Gregory L. Adams. Adams is a partner in Croswell & Adams, CO. LPA. This law firm has two partners. The second partner is Scott Croswell -- the same guy appointed based on Dirty Joe's recommendation to be Special Prosecutor. So, when Hamilton County forked over $500,000 to Croswell & Adams, they were giving it to the law firm that represents Dirty Joe in his divorce. Dirty Joe's divorce law firm is being subsidized by Hamilton County taxpayers.

Who PROSECUTES the PROSECUTOR when he breaks the law? Today the Ohio Ethics Commission was asked to bring Dirty Joe to justice. We pledge to keep you updated.

Shiverdecker Defended Cop Who Beat Handcuffed Kid

Merlyn D. Shiverdecker
At first glance, you might think the man pictured above is Adam West -- the old guy who played Batman from 1966-1968 and who is the voice of Mayor Adam West in Family Guy. It is actually Merlyn D. Shiverdecker. We've written about Shiverdecker on this blog before. We've even named him Merlyn "The Evil Magician" Shiverdecker because he's known to practice a sort of evil, black magic in Cincinnati courtrooms. This guy is mean, evil, nasty.

We aren't surprised he was handpicked by Joseph Theodore Deters (known on this blog as Dirty Deadbeat Dad Deters) to persecute Hamilton County Juvenile Court Judge Tracie Marie Hunter. Judge Tracie Hunter is a Christian minister. She used her elected position to defend and protect children ... All Children but especially BLACK CHILDREN ... from harm.

We want to remind you, our faithful readers, of the time when Shiverdecker defended a cop who was CAUGHT ON CAMERA beating up a kid!!!

According to this Cincinnati Enquirer story, city prosecutors charged Forest Park police officer Todd Halusek with transporting a teenager to the 2020 Auburn Juvenile Jail and once there "putting his arms around him, lifting him up, slamming him to the ground and pinning him down." The BEAT DOWN was captured on the jail's video security cameras.

Merlyn defended the cop. He admitted Halusek used force. But he urged a jury to engage in JURY NULLIFICATION -- find the cop not guilty even though excessive force was used.

President Bill Clinton signed The Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 into law. That law authorizes the U.S. Department of Justice to review the practices of law enforcement agencies that may be violating people's federal rights. (source) It is no secret that Cincinnati leaders are collecting stories of children abused by law enforcement officers working for Hamilton County and the Juvenile Court. They are petitioning President Barack Obama's DOJ to enforce the law and conduct a pattern and practice investigation of the Juvenile Jail, the Juvenile Court that runs it, and the Hamilton County Prosecutor's Office. This case of abuse is one of many that have been provided to DOJ. 

The lazy, local, mainstream, brain dead, white, racist media has people like Kimball Perry (known on this blog as KimNOballs) to tell their version of the story. The Cincinnati Black Blog is here to present a balanced alternative to them.

We urge those of you who believe in GOD and The DEVIL to think about what has been presented here and choose sides. Whose Side Are You On? The Christian Minister who PROTECTS KIDS or the Demonic Persecutor Who DEFENDS CHILD BEATERS?
