CityLink Opponent Terrorized

Community Council Member Target Of Vandals.

Watch the Video

“Dave Petersen's roof garden is like a West End oasis, an oasis that was visited by vandals on Tuesday. Getting to the garden, someone had to either scale a 6 foot fence or a 13 foot wall. Plants were destroyed, pots broken.

Dave Petersen, West End Community Council Member: "It took a lot of effort to come up here, and they're sending a message..."

Petersen says that message is clear.

"Stop digging, stop talking, and just basically, we've got a good thing going here, keep your mouth shut."

A member of the West End Community Council, Petersen and others have come out strongly about mismanagement in the community, funding issues, and plans to put a social service center called City Link in Petersen's back yard.

"We have uncovered millions of dollars of questionable transactions."

Dave Petersen has also found his tires flattened and a window broken at his home in the last three weeks. While a broken window doesn't necessarily mean anything, this one might, because it's so hard to get to. You have to go through a fenced yard, then you have to go through the bushes, and this one's barberry, it's really sharp, then you've got to get to the glass by going through an iron grate, about the only way to do that is with a piece of rebar or something like that and jam it through, nothing easy about breaking this window.”

David Petersen – A Profile in Courage

David Petersen is a courageous man who has taken a public stand for what is right in the West End. He has spoken out against CityLink, and he has exposed the corruption of Dale Mallory and the Cincinnati Empowerment Corporation.

Mr. Petersen was selected to be on the impeachment committee that reviewed the petition to impeach and remove Dale Mallory from office. The five member panel returned with a unanimous recommendation that Dale be removed. The West End Community Council agreed with over 76% of the vote against Dale Mallory.

Petersen was a vocal opponent against CityLink.

He was also an appellant against the CityLink zoning permit. He joined with his neighbors and the West End Community Council in contesting it. The Community won their case. CityLink’s lawyer, Democratic Party Chair Tim Burke is still appealing within the legal system.

Petersen was one of the people sued by Dale Mallory when Dale contested his impeachment. That case had no merit, and was thrown out of court. Dave was interviewed by the Dean of Cincinnati at a protest at the Oakley Democratic Forum, which you can listen to here.

Petersen has been on the forefront of the investigation of the Cincinnati Empowerment Corporation. You can view his interview with Dan Hurly on Newsmakers here.

To date, CEC board member Lamont Taylor resigned after calling for an investigation. City Hall has demanded an investigation and an audit. HUD went as far as calling for a full audit of the CEC and asking the Cincinnati Police to investigate possible criminal behavior. The latest player to join the party is the FBI, which specializes in cases of public corruption. Given these facts, I can’t see how effective acts of intimidation and retribution would be. Though the mayor has reportedly tried, no one person has the power to call off the dogs at this point. You can’t put that genie back in the bottle.

David Petersen is a civic and community leader. At the last community council meeting, Mr. Petersen was unanimously approved by 40 of his fellow members to become the West End representative on the Board of Directors of the Cincinnati Empowerment Corporation. He was the subject of a race based diatribe by Harold Cleveland and Lincoln Ware when he recently called in the talk show to discuss the Empowerment Zone on the Buzz. Lincoln Ware is in tight with the Beatty/Lawson/Mallory Cabal. Ware has broadcasted frequently from Junebug’s restaurant, and Lawson is a fellow host on the Buzz.

Petersen will take a spot on the Empowerment board made vacant by City Hall Hitman / functional illiterate Howard Beatty. Cincinnati Magazine recently noted noted that Howard Beaty had a criminal record that included jury rigging, aggravated burglary and domestic violence. Beatty was appointed to the Empowerment Board by Dale Mallory. Petersen will give his community a real voice for accountability on the Empowerment board.

"Nothing good happens unless you stand up for what's right, and what's going on down here is not right and I am willing to take the consequences of my action." – David Petersen

Dear Mr. Dallory,
Another good report.
Stuff has been going on to silence the Truth Squad.
Way back in the January/February WECC meetings, Dale and Junebug hired JB's crackheads to threaten the WECC members. Some came in asking "where do I go to get paid"?
The nice thing is, with so many video camera rolling, tons of evidence is available. You asked for the photo of the Norris "mike" shot and it was available.
This past week another WECC member had garden tools thrown in his/her pool. Same chicken s**t M.O. truth Squaders will be documenting this crap and the CPD/FBI will get the ringleader(s).
It's likely Dale or Junebug is paying thugs to "send a message".
They are also creating a pattern and a lot of evidence.
Dale's WECC theft and other charges will be minor compared to getting caught running a local terror agency to silence any opposition.
It all started with CityLink. Then D4S, then Junebug, N8's H8 terror blog entries, EZ (the recycled Genesis crew), now the D4S/JB terror tactics.
These guys leave a trail anyone can see. Now the FBI needs to make the case that the Truth Squad has developed and Mr. Dallory has so faithfully documented.

Yes Dave Petersen was a friend of Bill and Fannie Mallory, Loyal to a fault (the way one usually likes their friends to be) ... I spent thousands of my own money investigating Dale since 2002 and warned the community (including Dave) that he was up to no good... when I terminated my investigation (private attorney involved) I told Dave and others in the community that it would be up to the community to remove him as president of WECC as I wasn't willing to spend the thousands that it would take to expose his corruption via a civil suit... CityLink (major contributor but not only) and the Mallory response (proverbial straw) resulted in termination of Dave's friendship with the Mallorys. I had several conversations with Dave before and after he made his decision. All the talk about racism is pure UNADULTERATED CRAP...

"What I find amazing is that Petersen was a Mallory friend for years."

Many many years ago, I was a strong supporter for the Mallorys. Those were the days when Big Daddy was state rep. Actually, I was initially going to support 3M for Mayor until some small questions came to mind that didn't offer plausible answers. Then I changed my mind, which I have every right to do in this country without fear of reprisal. When the Mallorys got word I was jumping ship, I became one of their public enemies.

I can't speak for Mr. Petersen, nor will I attempt to, but, I believe we appreciated the goodness & the community goodwill & due diligence that had been associated with the Mallory name for decades. All that made the dirt seem petty gossip, until the layers of lies & trickery were peeled back.

My best thoughts & prayers go to Mr. Petersen in his time of upset. We're here for you at any time, you must know that.

Without a doubt, this is Mallory thugs, being paid by the job, not on the hour, to engage in activities that will buy a few months in the downtown Graybar Hotel. These clowns left prints & evidence galore. They have to know they're going down.

God bless Dave Petersen. God bless the Truth Squad & their supporters. God bless America. We will be victorious & we won't give up the fight!

Dave Peterson for Mayor. if we had Dave as our Mayor our troubles would be over.

Dave is a real modern day hero in my mind. It takes guts to move to the inner City and it take even more guts to stand up to the crap he has stood up to. I feel greatly indebted to Dave for his efforts. I hope to one day meet you in person.

Mr Whip, mind your manners or get em on up the hill.

I wasn't aware that Mr. Petersen was just made a member of the CEC board. Now that should be entertaining.

The Whistleblower just gave Dave their props.
They rightfully trashed scumbag stumpleg N8 for the racist hatemonger that he is.

" Meanwhile in the incredibly shrinking Cincinnati, Dave Peterson's house was vandalized and he is convinced it was a message to him from people close to the scandal he has been very involved in uncovering. Check out the Channel 12 video, which refers to a blog that calls Dave Peterson a racist white hatemonger, along with Eve Bolton, "Bowtie Bob" Newman, and "Sissy" Chrissy McCarthy. This Blog is run by Belligerent Black Blogger Nate "Rhymes With Hate"Livingston, who often thanks the Blower for helping him get his start.
But hats off to Dave Peterson for standing up against the corruption and risking it all to save this City. We need more fine Citizens like Dave!"

I wonder how many others will chime in now that the ice is broken.
Dale and Junebug have been threatening people for years.
"I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it any longer".
That's what the West End feels about the Beattys and the Mallorys.

That is the best article I have seen on this website. If we had more people that cared enough like Dave Peterson we could take back our communities. I don't live in the West End, but the same bullshit is going on here too. Kickbacks, paybacks, corruption, along with intimidation and threats if you question the people in power. It has to stop. I don't have the courage or backing to do what he has done. The good guys are always outnumbered and intimidated by the thugs that milk the system. Take back your community Mr. Peterson. Don't ever stop fighting or let them win. You are an inspiration to us all.

I agree, great story. Thanks Mr. Dallory for staying on top of the breaking news.
Now the $64 question.
What will d4s/JB's paid thugs do next?

Since they have taken to visiting adjacent neighborhoods scouting out where they can place the new

No 4 Sale/No 2 Dale

signs that the
Crossed Porpoises WareHouse & HealthPerPlexed Radon & Lead Weight Eatery and ChowChow Joint
(to be coowned by the lightfooted
Beatty buddies)

it would stand to reason that they would knock on some doors, open if no one answered and then forget to wave for the cameras. Gee Whiz, Allen Funt needs to be here.

The boys are preparing for Dale and Timmie's slow silent into the "Goodbye Columbus before I ever Got there" tour. Bubba Burke is feeling the screaming mee-mee-s
from all the unfan mail he's gathering at the orifice, sorry, awefuss, and he's looking at Daddy Dick on walking out on old Dale and helping a Republican take the 32nd. WOuld do Dickie proud to see one of his chosen minions placed where he could overpower Big Daddy Bill. He already did that by Cornwalling the 9th with 3Ms wiggly help. Tick, Tick, Tick Timmie, you let the faux fox in the hen house and Dickie will walk with his greenback votes. No favoritism except for the real green party animals. Tick, Tick, Tick 3M Timmie's gotta worry about Dickie so no sloop soup for you baby boy.

Wonders never cease when you have lunch near city hall.
