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.

Trump officials could face criminal charges for USPS sabotage — and the president may not be able to pardon them

Published

Members of the Trump administration could face legal jeopardy over efforts to sabotage U.S. Postal Service operations to interfere with the 2020 presidential elections.

"Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ) made a criminal referral to the New Jersey Attorney General on Friday night, asking him to impanel a grand jury to look at possible breach of state election laws by President Trump, Postmaster General Louis DeJoy and others for 'their accelerating arson of the post office,' he said. Alarming headlines have emerged in recent days as many states prepare to facilitate widespread mail balloting due to the coronavirus pandemic. President Trump openly admitted he was withholding federal aid from the postal service to prevent mail-in voting, and USPS has notified 46 states and D.C. that it will struggle to deliver some mail ballots on time," The Daily Beast reported Friday.

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow's opening segment on Friday focused on a positive story of political pressure stopping one of the Trump administration's attacks on the U.S. Postal Service.

Maddow reported how NBC Montana reporter Maritsa Georgiou had doggedly reported on the removal of postal boxes in Missoula, where she is based. Missoula has been a long-time Democratic Party stronghold.

Montana has a competitive U.S. Senate election in 2020, with Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock challenging first-term Republican Sen. Steve Daines.

As Georgiou chased the story, she learned there were also plans to remove boxes in the battleground of Billings. And more planned for the blue town of Bozeman. And other towns.
