The "Caton Resolution"

Councilwoman Roxanne Qualls introduced a resolution yesterday related to the promotion of Sgt. Patrick Caton, who was involved in the 2000 death of Roger Owensby Jr. She did so after the NAACP filled Council Chambers on Wednesday with people opposed to the promotion.

NAACP President Christopher Smitherman issued a list of requests, which included that Caton be put on desk duty pending the outcome of two psych exams and that the officer's every interaction with an African American be monitored. The list also asked that council vote to denounce the promotion.

Though several council members did speak against the promotion, the resolution now winding its way through the council process does not denounce it.

Typical Qualls.

The resolution says nothing. Means nothing.

P.S. If she wanted to change the arbitration process she could have done so while she was mayor.

Everyone together with me:


I knew you could do it.

As far as I'm concerned, if Chris Smitherman said it, it must not be true.

Qualls electoral weakness then as now was a failure to earn a majority of the Black vote. Once the luster of the newbies wears off she'll need Blacks to re-elect her and then elect her to replace Mallory.

Question: why was Qualls silent for so many years? Why is she so opposed to The Banks? I wonder if she's secretly on the hook to someone(s) in Northern Kentucky since so much of her "legacy" now resides over there: Hofbrauhaus, Levee, Aquarium, etc.

Seriously. Does she consciously work to improve the lot of NoKY?

Stop complaining about Roxy. You people voted her in just a few months ago. You knew here stance on the City and her track record. Next time ('09) be a little smarter with your City Council vote.

Congratulations Sergeant Canton, on your well-deserved promotion.

We're counting on you to keep the black thugs in check. Give the black criminals of Cincinnati a bear hug from the law-abiding, tax-paying citizens of Cincinnati. Squeeze real tight.

Anon 3:20- who are you calling "you people"?

Racist! Unless you're Ross Perot. Or Monica Williams at the 2003 Cincinnati City Council Christ Church Cathedral Candidates Forum.
