Attorney files assault complaint against DA Bebb

Hatchett shows his true-colors, "if it wasn't for bad sense-he'd have no sense at all"


Assistant District Attorney Cynthia Schemel claims that what started as an altercation, led to a physical assault.

UPDATE 4/10/2014
Hatchett calls resolution "ridiculous"
:
A Compromise has been reached Between DA Bebb and ADA Cynthia Schemel--even critics of DA Bebb see it as a "masterful stroke of diplomacy." 

Way to go Coach, Henry Kissinger move over...


As read in the Cleveland Daily Banner Hatchett comment by former chief-deputy Hatchett, "this matter should be investigated fully instead of being swept under the rug." ...Hatchett is doing an 180* flip-flop on his recent comment, which was that the alleged incident was "just politics" and money should not be spent on an investigation--now he is refusing to 'bury the hatchet'--listen to what he said 3 days ago. HERE  and, the 2015 Update.

Furthermore, part of his angry write-in to the CDB, included... "the men and women of the Cleveland Police Dept. deserve to not be used as pawns in political games."...interestingly though, he had no soothing comment or public words of wisdom 4 months ago, when Wes Snyder, the former Cleveland Police Chief resigned, and then tried to un-resign, in one of the worst police scandals anywhere. 
Update 2015: After losing his bid to replace his boss in the race for district attorney in 2014, Hatchett has taken a job in the public defender's office. 

Cleveland Police Dept. Evie West did a fantastic job in handling the Bebb-Schemel incident...in fact, Evie West should be nominated for 'Chief'...the only loser in this event is Steve Hatchett...not to worry Steve, the good news is, that security job you once thought about taking, is still available.

An Insider's view on the Missing Indonesian Flight 370

Given the intense interest into the disappearance of the Indonesian B-777...and a recently received email from a friend...I thought that you all might like to read this short message. I was his First Officer (Co-Pilot) for two or three months prior to my upgrading to Captain in 1995. He and I then served together as Line Check Airman in the B-727 for a number of years. He is an ex-Air Force F-15 pilot and is now either a MD-11 or B-777 Captain for a transport company.

A retired 3-star USAF general said (on Fox News) on the 18th of March 2014 that Boeing received it's last 'ping' from the Malaysian 777, while on the ground in western Pakistan, in a Taliban controlled area, near the Afghanistan border.
While flying between Paris and New Delhi (LFPG-VIPD), we were going to fly right over that area--when talking with Kabul Control, we were told to "OFFSET COURSE 10 NAUTICAL MILES TO THE NORTH, TO AVOID MILITARY AREA."
Having flown this part of the world for the last 3.5 years, I have never been asked to offset that much in that area, EVEN WHILE THE WAR WAS GOING ON.

The 'three star' is General Tom Mclnerney. General Mclnerney has been a Fox News contributor for quite a while. He comes across as an intelligent, sober and connected man. He is always quite measured in his responses and is not one to wander off "into the woods" by trying to make people think that he is knowledgeable about subject matter that he has little understanding of. On two occasions recently, the General has stated unequivocally that the missing B-777 is "on the ground in western Pakistan in a Taliban controlled area."
