CPS President caught on tape ignoring criminal assault at West High
Here's your link right up front, straight no chaser:
I am former Ohio Assistant Attorney General and Civil Rights lawyer Christopher King, and my erstwhile drinking buddy Prosecutor Bill Hedrick (he was a classmate of my fiancee's and a pretty chill pup) finds himself in a sticky wicket because convicted felon James Drennan and some co-horts savagely attacked (as in body-slamming, and Timberland-boot weilding) two young girls at West High school. As usual CPS covered it up and failed to assist the prosecutor and police. So now Bill has to roll up his sleeves and do the right thing to get Drennan arrested for these attacks. See Police Report No. 060138260.
Anyway, according to a legally-recorded phone interview between Ms. Stokes, (one of the assualt victims mother's) and School Board President Terry Boyd I just listened to, Superintendent Gene Harris investigated and found nothing wrong. But then he says he's going to call her to see if she investigated. Say, what? Boyd's a real hater on the phone, too:
"I don't get paid to do this. This is a volunteer situation and I'll be damned if I'm gona' volunteer to go through this.... I didn't have to call you back. You can talk all that concerned mother stuff all you want...."
This is an excerpt from an email sent to CPS by Columbus historian and my former videographer James Whitaker and his group, Parent Advocates for Students in School(PASS)
"We have now spoken to three mothers. Each one talks about their experience in knowing James Drennen. One mother stated James E. Drennen came to her home with a gun and threatened to shoot her family. She and her husband were not home at the time. She reported it to the school administration and the police. Prior to that, James Drennen had came into the school and threatened another young man's life in front of a group of students. A year ago, James Drennen and his daughter had attacked another child. Another mother said her son who is a student at West High School saw James Drennen put a gun to someone's face. All of these things occurred before James E. Drennen, his daughter, his brother and another female adult attacked Angelica Russell and Tamika Stokes on February 14, 2006 at the basketball game at West High School. The administration and other personnel at West High School was aware of these stories surrounding James Drennen and did nothing. James Drennen was not even issued a no trespass letter."
I'm thinking about coming on back down there to launch KingCast.net. Columbus could use it, to air out all of that dirty laundry it's been cosseting.
