Brandon McCloud Case Re-Opened
by Abigail Monday, Dec. 11, 2006 at 7:19 PM

The case was closed for Brandon McCloud, the fifteen year old boy who was shot and killed by two undercover cops who entered his grandmothers home at 5am, walked up the stairs into his room, and shot him dead. They claimed he had a knife and was a threat. The judge ruled in favor of the officers that they were doing their duty and were found not guilty of any violation of standard procedure. But friends and family know otherwise.

Black on Black crime has been the most outspoken group in Cleveland against the death of Brandon which they see as a modern lynching and cold blooded murder. They held a well attended press conference last Wednesday at their weekly meeting because recently, Mayor Jackson ordered a re opening of the case Some of the developments in the case include new evidence that was conveneintly not given to the prosecuting attorney who was reviewing the case of the officers. "If this new evidence is coming to the surface now, how much more evidence is out there that we don't know about?", asked Art McCoy.

Black on Black is planning on going national with this case, letting Al Sharpton know what happened and hopefully gain some more publicity and justice. They are not against the police. They are against injustice and the lack of evidence presented to make a real case against the officers who shot Brandon. What comes next is a hearing before a Grand Jury where the city prosecutor will argue Brandon's case. Terry Gilbert, civil lawyer representing the family of Brandon McCloud, has doubts that the city prosecutor will do a thourough job in presenting all necessary information.
