Prosecutors seek $100,000 bond for Cleveland cop they say is a ‘serial abuser of women’

Published

on

Prosecutors described a Cleveland cop as a “serial abuser of women” and asked a judge to raise his bond to $100,000.

David Anderson was indicted last month on charges of menacing by stalking, aggravated menacing and domestic violence, reported the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The 51-year-old police officer had three previous domestic violence incidents, authorities said.

He remains free on $10,000 bond posted the day after his Dec. 16 arrest by the president of the Cleveland Police Patrolman’s Association, but he was suspended pending the outcome of the case.

His attorney said Anderson, a city police officer since 2007, was a “good public servant and outstanding police officer.”

The attorney said Anderson would not plead guilty to the charges.

Prosecutors moved to have Anderson’s bond increased because they said he has already violated a protection order by calling the victim, his 43-year-old girlfriend, after his arrest.

Anderson is accused of attacking the woman three times in three consecutive days, starting Dec. 13.

He is accused of knocking his girlfriend unconscious by shoving her to the pavement and then shoving her down some stairs the following day.

Anderson pleaded guilty in 2010 to disorderly conduct after he was accused of threatening a previous girlfriend, punching through drywall at her home, breaking dishes, and slashing her tires.

That woman’s daughter called police in 2009 and reported Anderson was threatening to punch her mother, but the girlfriend did not press charges.

He was arrested in 2005 after threatening to snap that girlfriend’s neck, and authorities said he called her from jail and again threatened to snap her neck if she didn’t “fix this.”

Prosecutors did not charge Anderson in that case.

A judge will rule Thursday on the prosecutors’ request to raise Anderson’s bond.

BUSTED: National Archives caught doctoring exhibit to remove criticism of President Trump from women

Published

The National Archives were caught editing an artifact from the Trump administration to remove criticism of the president, according to a bombshell new report in The Washington Post.

The newspaper reported on a "large color photograph" at the National Archives exhibit marking the centennial of women's suffrage.

"The 49-by-69-inch photograph is a powerful display. Viewed from one perspective, it shows the 2017 march. Viewed from another angle, it shifts to show a 1913 black-and-white image of a women’s suffrage march also on Pennsylvania Avenue. The display links momentous demonstrations for women’s rights more than a century apart on the same stretch of pavement. But a closer look reveals a different story," the newspaper noted.

Professor Alan Dershowitz, who has also been associated with Harvard Law for five decades, was asked about Dershowitz's argument during an interview with Chris Hayes.
