Violence in the Inner Ring

Posted Monday, January 7, 2008

Share on Facebook Share Share on Twitter Tweet

Homicides aside, crime is down in Cleveland. That may be, but, with a recent high profile assault in Shaker Heights, crime appears to be on the rise in the inner ring. These seemingly random and extreme acts of violence are provoking reaction across the region. Monday morning, we'll talk with local leaders and you about the violence and crime that ignores city boundaries. The conversation begins at 9 a.m.


Government/Politics, Community/Human Interest, Courts/Crime - Fire/Law Enforcement, Parenting/Child Care


Earl Leiken, Mayor, Shaker Heights
Al Foster, member, Shaker Heights City Council
Thomas Chelimsky, co-president, Ludlow Association
Edward Fitzgerald, Mayor, Lakewood
