Plans for a temporary casino in Cleveland hit a snag in Columbus as lawmakers prepare rules for expanded gambling. Also, green energy practices take one step forward and one step backward in Northeast Ohio. Corruption indictments mount in Cuyahoga County, while the race for county executive attracts a former commissioner's candidacy. Lastly, a shocking video documenting animal cruelty foreshadows a statewide political battle. Friday morning at 9 join host Dan Moulthrop and reporters from across the state to discuss these and other stories from the week's news.

Good morning Dan,

In regards to the animal cruelty case, I do believe the timing of the release of the animal cruelty video was done to garner the attention of the media and politicians.  However, those who are critical of not reporting the abuse the day of the incident are missing another component of this incident. 

If the abuse of animals on any farm is reported after one incident, those farms now have plausible deniability because no pattern of abusive behavior has been established.

Holly Zachariah herself stated that the main figure in the abuse scandal was seen wearing different clothes in the videos indicating multiple days of abuse.  If the report had been made after one incident, that pattern of abusive behavior is not established. 

Thank you,
