"Racial discrimination allegations: Racine leaders want federal lawsuit tossed as NAACP calls on DOJ"

From Fox6now:

Posted 5:07 pm, September 29, 2015, by , Updated at 07:17pm, September 29, 2015




"RACINE -- A federal lawsuit claims white city officials in Racine discriminated against minority business owners. Recently released court documents show the city wants the lawsuit thrown out. This, as the president of Milwaukee's NAACP chapter is calling on the Department of Justice to investigate this case.

"'To me, that garners the NAACP's attention and it should garner the Department of Justice's attention,' Fred Royal with the Milwaukee NAACP said.

"The federal lawsuit was filed earlier this year against the city of Racine, alleging it unlawfully targeted minority business owners because of their race.

"Those with the group 'Racine Equality Project' believe the claim has merit.

"'I would be shocked if he didn't allow it to be used in the trial process,' Ken Yorgan with the Racine Equality Project said.

"However, attorneys for the city are asking that the case be thrown out -- saying in filed court documents: 'Plaintiffs' evidence of alleged racially discriminatory intent does not create a genuine issue of material fact.'"

From LiveLeak:


"No cops shooting people. No cops chasing some idiot till he crashes. Just one of those invisible good cops retiring in a memorable way

"Officer Derrick Jones served the Madison Police Department with honor for 15 years. He spent some of his days as a traffic enforcement decoy, crossing streets in marked crosswalks to educate drivers on yielding to walkers. That task earned him the nickname 'Duck,' which he referenced in his musical farewell.

"Officer Jones was struck by a vehicle one day in 2009 as he was leaving work and crossing a downtown street in the crosswalk. His injuries forced him to go on light duty for a period of time, a fact that also made its way into Jones’ rendition of the 'Boyz II Men' classic."

"Local author comes home to stay"

From The Journal Times.com:




"Last May, the award-winning author and poet visited his hometown of Racine in celebration of his recent gift of collected works to the Racine Heritage Museum.

"While they were here, he and his wife Nonny Hogrogian (an award-winning illustrator/artist) met with people throughout the community, as Kherdian gave readings and presentations throughout the week. The connections the couple made during that time convinced them to pull up their New York state roots and move to the city where Kherdian grew up in the 1930s and 40s.

"'We discovered an arts community here that is active, alive and progressive,' said Kherdian, whose work has been published in more than a dozen languages around the world.

"'And we feel like we have something to give back to the community, so that maybe someone else can grow from it.'"

"You Asked: CVS Rejected to Avoid ‘Dangerous Precedent’"

From Racine County Eye:

By Heather Asiyanbi in Business, Government · September 18, 2015

"After Mayor John Dickert cast the tie-breaking vote rejecting the proposed CVS Pharmacy at Ohio Street and Washington Avenue, several readers contacted Racine County Eye asking why the store was turned away.

"The new store was planned at more than 13,000 square feet. A new CVS would have replaced its current store a half-mile east at West and Washington, and that store would close.

"CVS had an option to purchase the buildings housing Racine Cyclery, American Coin, the vacant building in between and the empty cash store next door to Racine Cyclery. The store also was going to buy at least three homes and level it all to make way for the new pharmacy and parking lot.

"In order to move forward with the project, the Common Council would have had to approve rezoning the parcels to a commercial designation. Several alderpersons opposed the change because the area is supposed to be a buffer zone between the commercial corridor on the west side of the intersection and the residential neighborhoods of Manree Park and West Racine to the east.

"After an August 3 vote denying the necessary rezone request, Alderman Henry Perez introduced a reconsideration measure, but it was defeated Sept. 1 with the 8-7 vote in which Dickert cast the tie-breaker.

"When Racine County Eye reached out to the mayor to ask why he voted against CVS at Ohio and Washington, he said it wasn’t to turn away a business with which the city wants to partner. Instead, it was about preserving the area as the buffer zone it was designed to be.

"'Look, I know people are disappointed, and I hope this isn’t the end of our discussions with CVS,' he said. 'But I voted "no" because I think we could have set ourselves up with a dangerous precedent that would have worked against us in the future.'

"Dickert pointed to the gradual transition along Washington Avenue from commercial to residential and how changing the rules for CVS could open up the 4300 and 4400 hundred blocks to more commercial development which would irreparably alter the neighborhood.

"Both of those blocks on the south side of the street each include one business and a handful of homes. The north side of the street is strictly residential.

"'What happens if we say "yes" to CVS and then other businesses want to come in and point to what we did there to support their requests to do the same on those other blocks?' Dickert added. 'The change to the neighborhood would be irreversible, and then we’d face similar situations in other areas of the city, and I don’t think, in the end, that our residents want that.'

"Perez – who represents the district that includes the proposed CVS site – disagrees with the mayor. He said he doesn’t see a dangerous precedent and said that was actually discussed early in the process with CVS, but didn’t see a problem because West Racine transitions into a solid commercial district betwesn Blaine and West Blvds."

"Man Arrested for Mocking Mayor on Twitter Wins Big in Civil Suit"

"An Illinois man who was raided and arrested last year for creating a parody account of his town’s mayor on Twitter has won $125,000 in a civil rights lawsuit settlement."


"Jon Daniel, 30, the man behind a parody Twitter account with the handle @peoriamayor, was accused of 'impersonating a public official,' after mayor Jim Ardis became upset about the mockery.

"'Im bout to climb the civic center and do some lines on the roof who's in,' one tweet read.  Another questioned, 'Who stole my crackpipe?'

"Ardis argued that these tweets sounded reasonable enough that it sullied his reputation, as people might not be able to tell the account was fake.

"'Hurt feelings do not free government from the responsibility of respecting Mr. Daniel's freedom of speech and freedom from being arrested for that speech,' ACLU attorney Karen Sheley said in a statement. 

"The settlement also includes the agreement that the town of Peoria will send a directive to the police department reminding them that parody and satire is excluded from criminalization under the impersonation of a public figure law.

"'The directive makes it clear that parody should never be the predicate for a criminal investigation and that the action against Mr. Daniel should never be repeated again,' Sheley stated.

"The agreement with the city will also cover legal fees, bringing the total taxpayer-funded cost of the raid to around $250,000."

"Update: Mayor Cast Deciding Vote to Reject CVS Pharmacy"

From Racine County Eye:

By Heather Asiyanbi in Business, Government · September 2, 2015

**Updated 8:30 p.m.

"The deciding vote to reject once and for all a new CVS Pharmacy was cast by Mayor John Dickert.

"Despite his best efforts to get fellow alderpersons to reconsider, Henry Perez was unable to garner the necessary support to approve a new CVS Pharmacy at the corner of Ohio Street and Washington Avenue.

"The Journal Times reported that a vote was held Tuesday at the Common Council meeting and the proposed store was rejected again, but the original count of who fell on which side was unavailable. Wednesday afternoon, the newspaper listed Dickert’s vote as the tie-breaker.

"CVS was rejected 8-7.

"The new store was planned at more than 13,000 square feet and would have replaced its current store a half-mile east at West and Washington and that store would close.

"CVS had an option to purchase the buildings housing Racine Cyclery, American Coin, the vacant building in between and the empty cash store next door to Racine Cyclery. The store also was going to buy at least three homes and level it all to make way for the new pharmacy and parking lot.

"After an August 3 vote denying the necessary rezone request, Perez attempted to introduce a reconsideration measure, but because the discussion was not noticed on an agenda and wasn’t compelled by an alderperson who was on the winning side of the denial vote, the rest of the council could not legally address it.

"During the meeting Tuesday, Perez asked for a vote sending the matter to the Committee of the Whole, but board President Dennis Wiser instead directed the issue to a vote, the story continues.

"Perez and several other council members expressed concern about holding the vote so quickly because Jim Kaplan, a key supporter of the store, had to leave early and was unable to vote.  [My emphasis - Orbs]"
