PRESS CONFERENCE WITH THE KEITH FAMILY, THEIR FAMILY ATTORNEY, AND BLMCLE JOIN US FRIDAY NOV 20 @ 12 NOON 5715 WOODLAND AVE. CLEVELAND OHIO 44104


Regarding The Murder At King Kennedy By Police: We’d like to begin by lifting up the name of Arthur Keith, this loving 18 year old was a young man balancing having a social life and always having time to love and be there for his family and everyone who knew him …………but police would like to define him by this one moment where he is alleged to have been a dangerAgain here is what we know… a young man who was running away was considered a threat and was shot and murdered while running away. We know that he was shot by an employee of CMHA which has personnel impersonating law enforcement because to be law enforcement you must undergo state mandated training which CMHA does not and as a result people die.We would like for members of City Council to launch an investigation into the legitimacy of the officers and to create legislation requiring more and better training. They need to do more than respond to citizens being angry by sending out people to calm residents but respond to citizens being murdered by requiring more from police.We ask that this not only be thoroughly investigated and that the prosecutors who boast they could indict a ham sandwich will do what so few seem able to do….indict a cop. Also we demand that the prosecutor’s office shut down any and all police agencies like CMHA, Transit Police and more that don’t undergo state mandatory training which can be life saving.
