https://www.dispatch.com/news/20181012/homicide-rate-down-in-2018-but-detectives-mission-remains-same

 

So far this year, there have been 17 percent fewer homicides in Columbus versus the record-breaking number in 2017:

  • As of 10/10, there have been 83 homicides versus 99 homicides through Oct. 10 in 2017
  • At the current rate, Columbus would have an estimated 106 homicides by this year’s end versus the record-high 143 homicides in 2017

The city had relatively very high murder numbers in November and December last year, when traditionally murders are lower in colder months. There’s no guarantee of that and the total could easily end up below 100.

Columbus has 100 homicides as of yesterday.

 

https://www.dispatch.com/news/20181218/man-found-shot-to-death-on-northeast-side

 

Much better than last year and on line with what the city has had for the last ten years or so (between 100-110 homicides). Last year had 143, so a big improvement(hopefully there is no explosion in murders in the next two weeks or so.)

https://www.dispatch.com/news/20181224/for-first-time-next-columbus-police-chief-could-come-from-outside-division

 

The current Columbus Police Chief Kim Jacobs announced that her last day on the job will be Feb. 8 -- after a nearly seven-year run leading the Columbus Division of Police.  Columbus’ charter gives the police and fire chiefs up to two five-year terms in office, during which they cannot be fired without cause after the first year of the five-year term.  Jacobs is in her second five-year term, but she never intended to finish it.  She is part of the Deferred Retirement Option Program, which allows public workers to defer pensions for up to eight years to remain on the job longer.  Her window closes in February.

 

An interim chief will oversee the department while the city works with a consultant to conduct a search for the new chief.  Jacob's retirement will touch off the first national search in the division's history, who Mayor Andrew J. Ginther said will need to be a “change agent” for the division.  This national search could led to the city’s first police chief hire from outside its existing ranks.  Mayor Ginther said the search will not have a deadline, and it will allow residents to weigh in on the hire.

I prefer rates to totals when it comes to crime, because population change means a place can be getting safer or more dangerous even if totals aren’t changing.  Murder in Columbus is one of the few crimes in the city not near historic lows for rate.  It’s been hovering in the 10-13 per 100k range for several years.   2018 was about 11.6.   BTW, 2017 was not the highest rate.  1991 still easily beats it.

^ I don't know why they keep referring to this as an "internet cafe" - it gives the place too much legitimacy.  It was one of those sketchy "gaming spots" that run casino-type games over the internet 24/7.  It must've made some money because it got robbed at 4am, and two employees got shot.

https://www.dispatch.com/news/20190122/ginther-names-deputy-chief-tom-quinlan-as-interim-columbus-police-chief-pending-national-search

 

A 29-year Columbus Division of Police veteran who oversees the north patrol subdivision will become interim chief as the city conducts a national search for a permanent replacement for Chief Kim Jacobs when she retires in February.  Mayor Andrew J. Ginther announced Tuesday that he will appoint Deputy Chief Tom Quinlan to the interim post.

 

Jacobs, 61, was hired in 2012 under then-Mayor Michael B. Coleman as the division’s first female chief, and Ginther asked her to stay on for a second five-year term after he was elected mayor.  Quinlan, 52, was hired into the division’s training academy in 1989, eventually rising to the deputy chief position in September 2013.  He has worked in the division’s training bureau and helped make changes to the division’s recruitment division last year, after Ginther called on the city’s public-safety forces to double their level of diversity within 10 years.

Columbus Division of Police abolishes Vice Unit:  https://www.nbc4i.com/1861878926

 

Two high profile cases preceded the CPD's internal review into its vice unit.  One was the arrest of Stormy Daniels last summer by undercover vice officers while she was appearing at a Columbus strip club.  The second, and much more serious, was Columbus Police Vice officer Andrew Mitchell shooting a prostitute last year (who later died) during an alleged arrest.  It was later determined that Vice officer Mitchell had been threatening multiple prostitutes with arrest if they didn't perform sex acts on him.

 

Vice officer Mitchell was indicted by the Justice Department on seven federal charges and arrested and charged last week with deprivation of civil rights under the color of law and of kidnapping and sexually assaulting multiple victims under the guise of an arrest.  Mitchell also faces charges of witness tampering and making false statements to federal agents.  More about this at https://radio.wosu.org/post/vice-officer-andrew-mitchell-resigns-columbus-police#stream/0

https://www.dispatch.com/news/20190403/missing-womans-body-found-in-her-car-in-columbus-police-impound-lot

 

This is an odd story of a 61-year-old woman who was reported missing from the Near East Side on March 10 and then found dead inside her car in the Columbus Police Division Impound Lot on the city’s South Side earlier this week.  There's lots of details yet to be known in this story, namely:

  • how the woman died (there were no signs of trauma and no visible signs of foul play)
  • whether the woman died in the car before it was towed or at the impound lot
  • why did the tow truck driver or the impound lot personnel not notice the woman in the vehicle's back seat when the vehicle was impounded(!)

Impound lot personnel only discovered the woman's body in the vehicle's back seat after a detective with the CPD missing persons unit learned on Monday that the woman's vehicle was in the impound lot and asked personnel to check the vehicle.  The results of toxicology tests — which could help determine the cause of death — are pending and usually take weeks.

Broadening investigation into possible "angel of mercy" deaths at Mount Carmel West hospital in Columbus.  It appears that one doctor (Dr. William Husel) at Mount Carmel West was giving excessive doses of painkillers to near-death hospital patients from 2015 until he was removed from providing patient care on Nov. 21, 2018.

 

UPDATE:

 

Husel charged with murder in 25 Mount Carmel deaths

 

Former Mount Carmel doctor William Husel was charged Wednesday in the deaths of 25 patients in one of the biggest murder cases in state history.  Husel turned himself in to Columbus police this morning after a six-month criminal investigation concluded that he purposely caused the deaths of dozens of patients by ordering excessive doses of painkillers over a four-year-period.  A Franklin County grand jury indicted Husel on 25 counts of murder, and the charges were filed in Franklin County Common Pleas Court on Wednesday morning.  Husel was arrainged at 1:30 p.m. and his bond was set at $1 million.

 

Mount Carmel health system officials have said Husel ordered excessive doses of painkillers for 35 patients, though they said they do not believe six of those patients died because of the drugs.  All but one of those patients were at the former Mount Carmel West hospital.  One patient was at Mount Carmel St. Ann’s hospital in Westerville.  The criminal charges involve the 25 victims given at least 500 micrograms of the opioid fentanyl, a level which O’Brien said was potentially lethal.  “At the 500 microgram level there would be no legitimate medical purpose,” said Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O’Brien. “The only purpose would be to hasten their deaths.”

 

O’Brien said none of the 35 nurses and pharmacists placed on administrative leave by Mount Carmel will be criminally charged.  O’Brien said his office treated them as witnesses. ... Sources have told The Dispatch that no other hospital employee is currently under criminal investigation.  State boards that oversee pharmacists, nurses and doctors are still investigating the actions of the 30 nurses and pharmacists, along with five managers, that have been placed on administrative leave by the hospital.  O’Brien said several of those employees could lose their licenses. ... Husel still faces 19 pending wrongful-death lawsuits filed by families of patients who died.  At least 8 lawsuits have been settled.

Policing the Police with Columbus Community Cop Watch

 

Columbus Community Cop Watch isn’t waiting for a new police chief. And they’re not waiting for the Columbus Division of Police to review and implement recommendations from the Community Safety Advisory Commission. They’re not waiting on reform.

 

Founded by Hana Abdur-Rahim, Cop Watch is a grassroots approach to creating more transparency in the policing of Columbus residents. In essence, they police the police.

 

“I was just tired of things not getting done by City Council members, the mayor. We need to just watch them ourselves,” says Abdur-Rahim, referencing the local police killings of Tyre King, Henry Green, Julius Tate Jr., Jaron Thomas, etc. “Basically, we’re trying to prevent another shooting from happening, and prevent another case of police brutality from happening in specifically black and marginalized communities.”

 

Each member has downloaded a scanner app on their phone so that, at any given time, one or more can respond to a dispatch call and record the ensuing interaction between police officers and civilians. They don’t have a camera crew or anything, they’re just using the cameras on their phones. And it isn’t a widespread group. So far, they have about seven or eight regular members.

Columbus is running *slightly* behind last year's murder total.  58 through yesterday when 2018 had 61.  The heat hasn't translated to a spike in crime like it sometimes does.  Of course, any single month could make or break a better overall year.

Columbus City Council passed legislation that will reduce penalties for possessing marijuana.  Offenders caught with up to 100 grams would be fined $10 and those caught with 100 and 200 grams would pay $25.  Unlike state law, possession of up to 200 grams will not lead to possible jail time:

Jury recommends death sentence in killings of 4-year-old daughter, ex-girlfriend

 

For the first time since 2003, a Franklin County jury has recommended a death sentence.

 

A Common Pleas Court jury recommended Wednesday that Kristofer Garrett, 26, of the Far East Side be sentenced to death for his conviction August 6 on two of three aggravated murder charges in the stabbing deaths of his 4-year-old daughter, Kristina Duckson, and her mother and his ex-girlfriend, Nicole Duckson.

 

The jury was deadlocked on how to sentence Garrett for Nicole’s murder, so a sentence of life without parole was recommended.  But jurors unanimously agreed that the aggravating circumstances of Kristina’s murder — that she was a child under the age of 13 and that Garrett killed his daughter to cover up Nicole’s murder — were so brutal that death was an appropriate sentence for his conviction on the two aggravated murder counts in the child’s killing.

Not guilty by reason insanity verdicts are pretty rare.  But given the absolutely bizarre circumstances of this case, I'm not surprised:

 

Man who killed 2 postal supervisors found not guilty by reason of insanity

 

A Columbus man was found not guilty “only by reason of insanity” Tuesday for the brutal killings of two of his Dublin post office supervisors two days before Christmas in 2017.  DeShaune K. Stewart, 25, of the Southeast Side, could have faced the death penalty on two counts of murder of an officer of the United States.  Instead, he will be evaluated and likely confined to prison for the foreseeable future after multiple psychologists determined he had suffered manic and psychotic episodes at the time of the crimes and was not fully aware of his actions.

 

It was an unusual case, as both prosecutors and defense attorneys agreed from the start on the facts of the case and the expected sentence.  Stewart arrived naked at the Emerald Parkway post office in Dublin just before 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 23, 2017, where he killed his supervisor, Lance Herrera-Dempsey.  Stewart then drove to the Northwest Side apartment of Dublin postmaster Ginger E. Ballard, whom he later beat to death in the parking lot. ... Stewart was arrested at the latter scene, later telling police that God told him to kill his supervisors, at one point spitting out two pieces of Ballard’s jewelry that he claimed were being used to “suck out his soul,” according to documents.

 

Stewart waived his right to a jury trial Tuesday, opting instead to have U.S. District Judge Michael H. Watson hear the case directly in a bench trial that included opening and closing statements and formal admission of evidence.  Only one person, a postal inspector who handles investigations, testified. ... Judge Watson will determine Stewart’s future after a new psychiatric evaluation.  He likely will be confined and reevaluated every six months to determine whether he is a danger.  “I can’t see there being a time when we can risk that,” said Assistant U.S. Attorney David M. DeVillers of Stewart’s possible future release.

Thomas Quinlan, 53, and a 30-year division veteran, was formally announced today to lead the Columbus Division of Police by Mayor Ginther after a months-long search process that began after former Chief Kim Jacobs retired in February.

 

Quinlan was named interim chief after Jacobs retired.  Mayor Ginther said Quinlan, who was one of two finalists for the job, has made “solid strides in the right direction” during his 10-month tenure as interim chief.  The chief position is a five-year appointment, with the option for a second five-year term.

Two Columbus police officers have been fired and two supervisors disciplined in connection with their handling of the July 2018 arrest of adult film performer Stormy Daniels at a local strip club.

 

Columbus Public Safety Director Ned Pettus signed orders Thursday to fire former vice unit Officers Steven Rosser, 43, a 19-year veteran, and Whitney Lancaster, 57, a member of the division for 32 years.  In addition, Lt. Ronald Kimmerling, 51, a 24-year veteran, was suspended for six weeks, and Sgt. Scott Soha, 43, who has been with the division for 17 years, received a three-week suspension, according to findings signed by Pettus.  The suspensions were over their lack of supervision of the vice operation involving Daniels.

Wasn't 100% sure where to put it but 2 shootings and stabbings in the Short North Assiciated with Monarch Lounge this week and the City is hauling the owner in to review.

 

The fascinating part is the owner is legitimately blaming street food vendors for being allowed to operate as the reason for recent violence. I've been in Columbus for 10 years and street food vendors have been a part of the Short North nightlife with little to know issue to my knowledge. Your establishment comes in and issues are clustered and associated with your establishment and the blame goes somewhere else? What a cheap cop out.

The owners won't get legitimate traction with their street vendor excuse.  It's cheap, poor and ridiculous not to take ownership of a trashy situation.  I've lived here for 10 years, and 9 of those were directly in the Short North and I can assure you the vendors are not the problem.  A bar owner like this is a nuisance, and if they can't shape up and try to correct their culture that clearly seems to be stemming from their establishment, they have to go.  At this point, I say pack up, keep you trashy business in Miami and let a more deserving business have this prime location.

Possible, if the vendors are dealing drugs or associated with a gang.

Still, having "official" last call at 1:55 can lead to a worse crowd.   A lot of places close at 1:30 or even 1 for that reason.    That super-late crowd doesn't usually spend a lot of money, and they have a habit of not tipping and not wanting to leave when it's time..
