Dear Commissioner Dennis Miller:

I am sorry that we have never had the opportunity to meet, but I wanted to take a moment to urge you to very carefully read the above captioned report. I hope you take the time to do that and question if this was indeed a fair and impartial investigation of the facts, or whether it followed the dictates of an agenda.

I also wanted to mention to you that I met a man at the city commission meeting on Thursday who shared with me his thoughts about this issue and others. He also mentioned he's lived in his home in the 1500 block of Shelby Street for 67 years and said there are eight vacant houses surrounding his home. I drove to his neighborhood earlier today, and sadly, it appears the information he gave me is exactly correct.

I wonder if the more than $40,000 spent so far on the Murman investigation and related expenses would have been better spent to protect our neighborhoods and secure our city's future.

Please feel free to call me anytime. There are a great many other concerns I have regarding this issue, and it would be nice to meet and talk with you about them. Thank you for taking the time to consider my request.

Sincerely,

Matt Westhover

This needs to be a law again. If us drivers must wear belts then bikers need to wear helmets.

Hey the american people voted for Barack Obama, and made history. Lets make history together by having a Town Hall Meeting with all of our local public officials.

We can do it. Lets come together adn make a change. For once and for all, lets stand united, black, white, asian, hispanic, native american, gay, and straight.

This is not about belonging to a party we all belong to the human race people. These public officials are getting away with destroying our civil rights.

People all across the United States could come together to vote on a cause whether they were dem, rep, or independent they voted one way or the other.

So lets come together to address our public officials in a civilized manner at a town hall meeting.

We need change!!!!!

If Kim Nuesse could get fired for all this perceived dishonesty then I guess Erie County is going to have to fire a lot of the da*m public officials in this town------especially since THEIR dishonesty borders on the ILLEGAL.

Personally I belive it should be up to the parents on weather or not their child should be able to drive. My parents didn't let me drive until they felt I was responsible enough to handle that. Also it would be a major inconvenience for parents of athletes to have to continue to pick them up from practices that often times run very late. Overall I would trust certain 16 year olds with driving and others no. But it's not my call, it should be the parents.

Also this aritcle is extremely biased and shouldn't even be considered a legit news article.

Client(s): McDonald, Dewitt Jr.
Representation: In re McDonald, No. 06-4120 (6th Cir.)

Lead Practice(s): Appellate Courts, Criminal Defense/Habeas Corpus

January 2008

Summary: Jones Day won a significant victory before the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in a habeas case involving a claim of actual innocence.

The Firm was appointed to represent Dewitt McDonald, Jr. in moving the Sixth Circuit for an order authorizing Mr. McDonald to file a second or successive habeas petition in a United States District Court. The Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996 (AEDPA) requires such a petitioner to first obtain authorization from the appropriate court of appeals before filing a second or successive petition in the district court.

In a published opinion, the Sixth Circuit held that Mr. McDonald had made the requisite prima facie showing of actual innocence under AEDPA. In so ruling, the court adopted Jones Day's argument that, at the authorization stage, the court of appeals may not consider whether the underlying petition would be deemed timely under AEDPA's statue of limitations. The Sixth Circuit became the first court of appeals to expressly address and decide that issue.

The lawyers representing Mr. McDonald before the Sixth Circuit were Robert T. Smith (who argued the case) and Meir Feder.

What exactly is he going to say that can prove he is innocent? Regardless of what the court has stated in its opinion, how can he prove that he did not commit the crime?

In my opinion, the only way a person can prove that they were not somewhere they were accused of being is to have a video tape of them elsewhere.

Now, everyone knows that people will tell a lie for whatever reason. And there are plenty of people that will say any and everything to ........

So, he doesn't a sure winning case. If anything he may get the possibility of getting a new trial, but that's it.

I find it rather interesting that the Innocence Project will not take the case. Obviously, they don't believe that he is innocent either. That is definitely going to be a huge hurdle to get over. When you don't have the support of those types of organizations it makes the public doubt the validity of your claims. So, someone needs to set the record straight as to why no other civil rights groups will get involved.

What's that you said? The Erie County Good Ole Boys don't have a conscience? We already know that.....just look at what they did to Kim Nuesse......
Oh by the way, did you know that is one of the characteristics of a schizophrenic----a lack of conscience?

curious

Does anybody know the date that the Lorain County Recorder office merged with the Erie County Recorder office?Also, does anybody know the date that the Erie County Probate Court and the Erie County Common Pleas Court merged with the Cuyahoga County Court? For some odd reason the public officials here in Erie County are trying to conceal this and Kevin Baxter won't return my phone calls.

Just how convenient was it for you BAxter to deliberating leave this critical piece of evidence left out for the public. Was i there ? You know darn well I wasn't there, I was home being a praent, something you have no ideal about. I was home when SWAT kicked my door in twice to come get Daryl and Dewitt holding guns to me and childrens head because you Kevin informed the FBI in Columbus Ohio that two criminals were on the run and they were armed and dangerous and possibly dangerous, not stating they were murderers but dangerous.

You also stated that you received a tip of there whereabouts when he knew darn well where the heck they were. Kevin please don't lose site that it was YOU who called my home over and over again, asking for both Dewitt and Darryl sir after the crime happend, so how were they on the run ? Answer that will you . I answered your calls and politely handed the phone over to both of them when they were quote un quote suspects. So like I said you dum crap of shi*t save your argument for court, its pointless here.... No one is believing your lies Kevin no one !
