Valentine’s Day Murderer Back to Court

Posted on 30 September 2014 by HometownCleveland

- michael younger w:nameThe killer Michael Younger will be back in court on Oct. 13, to see if he can convince a judge to dismiss a triple homicide rap from 15 years ago. On Valentine’s Day in 1999, Younger took part in the execution murder of three young people in a Cleveland, TN apartment because of a disagreement with one of them (O.J. Blair) the night before. The other two victims (Cayci Higgins & Dawn Rogers) were in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Younger is seeking a dismissal because the case was botched so badly by former district attorney Steve Bebb’s office. Bebb was forced to “retire” earlier this year before the end of his term amid scandal, ethic violations and “criminal activity.”val Day murder vics

Meanwhile, Younger’s bond is set at $500,000. Incredible to think this murdering thug is just 10% of $500k away from freedom. Thank you, Steve Bebb.

And for you trivia buffs: Once upon a time Michael Younger was a protege to the villain Steve Bebb (or “Coach,” as his boys affectionately called him). Bebb even bought the fledgling young killer an expensive pair of athletic shoes so he would have every advantage in life.

In the Old Sign Shop, too?!!

Posted on 05 January 2014 by Earwax

Dear Hometowncleveland:eartothegroundlogo-sm.jpg

“Did you know Janice Casteel had been receiving complaints about snyder/marr from city employees for over a year? (Wes and Sharon) would spend over an hour in Sharon’s office with the door locked. Her office is in the municipal building annex.

They also complained to Casteel about Snyder/Marr spending time together in the old sign shop that is in the back lot of the pd. They eventually had to change the locks because they could not keep them out of it.

I know Casteel also called snyder in over a year ago and asked him about the complaints and he denied it to her.”

What’s Love Got To Do With It?

What’s Love Got To Do With It?

Posted on 05 January 2014 by HTC Editor

HTC_EditorialIn first reporting the fall of Wes Snyder, we said (a bit facetiously) that no one could accuse him of self respect. Those words were borne out this week when the disgraced police chief came crawling back to City Manager Janice Casteel with his tail between his legs begging for his job back. To her credit, Casteel refused his request and will not allow him to keep his badge.

Snyder was caught last month on video tape in an adulterous affair. Normally, that alone wouldn’t be newsworthy. But Snyder’s actions transcended simple adultery and took cheating to new heights (or lows) that included behavior which is not strictly legal.

First, though, consider the ethical offenses …

The chief of police is the top cop for the City. His honesty and trustworthiness should be above reproach. Cops hold the power of freedom or arrest over the teeming masses. Often, they hold the power of life or death (and on at least two occasions, Snyder meted out death). It is imperative that cops remain above reproach. They are role models and should hold themselves to a higher standard of conduct. This applies to the chief of police even more.

Snyder’s actions demonstrated a willingness to lie, sneak and cheat. Worse, the “love nest” in which he routinely spent hours frolicking with a married woman was not even a cheap motel room … it was the floor of a storage unit. Perhaps such cheesy behavior isn’t a crime, but is does show a pathetic lack of character. It also shows a lack of concern for his wife and family, his community, the young people of his community, his church, his subordinates and even himself and his mistress (whom he described as a “very dear and very good friend”) and her family. Perhaps there’s nothing illegal in being a liar and a cheater, but those are certainly not admirable qualities.

But, more importantly, Snyder’s actions were illegal …

Snyder and his lover routinely habituated their “love nest” on City time, even while he was wearing his uniform. At the very least ~ the very least ~ cavorting on the floor of a storage building during business hours and on the taxpayer’s dime should be viewed as conduct unbecoming. Also remember, throughout the 10 years of Snyder’s time in office, his administration has been plagued with scandal, crime and inappropriate sexual behavior. This warehouse love fest is just the straw that broke the city manager’s back, so to speak (even though Mayor Tom Rowland and some city council members are loathe to criticize Snyder).

Further, Snyder’s girlfriend, Sharon Marr, is the executive director of MainStreet Cleveland, a so-called “non profit” organization that receives taxpayer money and is supposed to promote Cleveland in a positive light. Marr is said to have rented and equipped the storage shed with MainStreet money, including the booze, the baby wipes and the decoy cardboard boxes stacked in front of the door to hide the lovers’ blanket from casual observers. To date, Marr is on suspension with pay, but there’s no way she can be allowed to keep her job. Rather than representing Cleveland in a positive light, both she and Snyder are objects of ridicule and always will be.

So, considering Marr’s involvement, add aiding and abetting to Snyder’s other charges. And that’s not even to mention the position Snyder would have found himself in if someone had wanted to blackmail him.

At any rate, when the surveillance video became public, Snyder thought to mitigate the damage by quickly and quietly submitting a resignation letter to Casteel before she had a chance to fire him. He submitted his written resignation on Dec. 6th, to be effective a month later on Jan. 5th. Casteel accepted his resignation.

That’s why it was particularly egregious and embarrassing when Snyder crawled out from under his rock on Friday and went wheedling to the city manager’s office, begging them to tear up his resignation letter and allow him to stay on as chief. Egregious, because he now claims he did nothing wrong; embarrassing, because he’s placing the blame for his “resignation” on Casteel and two “city officials.”

Snyder said that he was told last Friday, “without hesitation,” by Cleveland Personnel Director Jeff Davis and Assistant City Manager Melinda Carroll that he could withdraw his intent to retire. That may be accurate, but it doesn’t mean anybody has to agree with the request. And nobody has … least of all, Janice Casteel.

After he received the news that he would not be allowed back, Snyder complained to the Times Free Press, saying, “I just find it a little strange that I am not allowed to withdraw my resignation even though I have not violated any city policies …”

No, Wes. It’s “a little strange” that Casteel didn’t fire your sorry butt as soon as your behavior was made public, instead of allowing you to retire with full honors and benefits. For you to further humiliate yourself by begging for your job back, claiming you did nothing wrong, justifies our statement that you cannot be accused of having self respect.

Now go away, Wes. You’re done.

The Rise and Fall of Wes Snyder

Posted on 09 December 2013 by HometownCleveland

Snyder-Marr love nestSeems that Police Chief Wes Snyder’s idea of romance is sucking back a bottle of brandy and then banging his girlfriend on the floor of a storage shed. And they say the sensitive types are going out of style.

(An Aside: You remember what the man said, Wes? “One day a strong wind will blow you away.” My god, sir, what goes around truly does come around, doesn’t it?)

Wes will know what that means.

Police Chief Wes Snyder was caught on video with his mistress entering and leaving what the Chattanooga Times Free Press called a “love nest.” And by “love nest” they meant a blanket on the floor of a storage unit on Old Tasso Road which the owner described as smelling like garbage. Furthermore, according to reports, Wes’ girlfriend, Sharon Marr, executive director of MainStreet Cleveland, paid for the unit and even drove Wes out there in her own car.

You certainly can’t say either one of them are guilty of self-respect.

We wonder why City Manger Janice Casteel worked a deal with Snyder instead of firing him outright, but he’s being allowed to resign and retire with a fat pension. If nothing else, he should have been terminated for conduct unbecoming and then turned over to the TBI, let them sort it out.

Wes_SnyderBut Wes Snyder’s upcoming “retirement” on his 10th anniversary puts an end to a messy and violent legacy that began with his father, the late Bernard Snyder. Bernard was himself a former chief of police and a larger-than-life character in Cleveland lore, known for thick phone books in back rooms, brawls, gunplay, running roughshod and generally engaging in humorous, head-cracking mayhem.

It was inevitable that little Wes would follow in Bernard’s footsteps and, sure enough, when Wes was old enough, his father Bernard hired him to the force. Wes Snyder was a natural at the job, with the promise of becoming a legend in his own right. He was also quick to pull his gun, and just as quick to pull the trigger. Within his first six months as a Cleveland cop, Wes Snyder had already shot five people in five separate altercations, killing two. One of the guys he killed was drunk and the other was fleeing on foot. For Bernard, the killings were justified. For Wes, they were a résumé enhancer.

To quote ourselves, this is how Wes Snyder finally ascended to the top cop position: “In 2003, long-simmering discontent, favoritism and misbehavior within the Cleveland Police Department came to a head. Lee Reese, who was chief of police at that time, found himself on the losing end of a ‘petition of no confidence,’ signed and/or supported by 74 rank-and-file CPD officers. Long story short, when the smoke cleared, Reese was out and up-and-comer Wes Snyder was in.”

Of course, Wes Snyder had been pushing hard behind the scenes (and in secret meetings with the press) to make Lee Reese look bad … which wasn’t too hard to do ~ Reese was a schlub. But after Reese was gone and the city manager hired Snyder to fill the spot, Snyder proved to be no better. In fact, the entire ten years of Snyder’s leadership as chief of police are marked by duplicity, monkey business and a lack of accountability.

Over the past decade, Wes Snyder’s cops have engaged in criminal activity that includes illegal drug use, the statutory rape of a number of young girls, “forcing themselves” on cute female crime victims, drunkenness, sexual relations with inmates, Russian Roulette (one cop was shot), violent domestic melt-downs, porn on city-owned cell phones, “running from other law enforcement agencies,” falsifying documents, and various and sundry other indecencies and horn-dog pursuits.

sharon_marr2Wes Snyder also discouraged cops from making arrests on domestic calls to keep the numbers down on annual crime reports, ignored Cleveland’s growing gang problem, plagiarized his Sunday column in the Cleveland Daily Banner and lied about it, lied under oath about not having knowledge of his officers’ misconduct, fired a detective investigating a DTF director’s drug use, and had drunken sex during business hours on the floor of a smelly storage unit at Rhodes Climate Controlled Storage with a woman who definitely wasn’t his wife.

Top it off, he’s not even a good cop. According to NeighborhoodScout.com, citing FBI statistics, out of 100 of the most dangerous cities in the United States with populations of 25,000 or more, Wes Snyder’s little Cleveland, Tennessee is ranked number 70.

And so, after his violent rise, deficient reign and embarrassing fall, City Manager Janice Casteel and the Cleveland City Council are allowing Wes Snyder to quietly retire come January. The reason they’re allowing him to wait until January is because that will mark his 10th anniversary as Cleveland’s chief of police, which means the fat pension he receives for the rest of his life will be figured at the higher monetary rate of a police chief with 10 years service.

But that, taxpayers, is what passes for justice in the beautiful, Godly Land of Cleve.

Storage Warehouse of Love

Posted on 06 December 2013 by HometownCleveland

Following is the sequence of events surrounding the breaking story of the fall of Police Chief Wes Snyder as it appeared on our FaceBook page. As usual, we were first with the story. And, also as usual, our detractors called us liars and said we were wrong about the chief. For the record then, here is how the Snyder story first broke …

On Dec. 6, 2013 at 3:40 pm, HTC FB broke the Snyder story thusly:

CHIEF OF POLICE WES SNYDER IS OUT!

CPD Chief Wes Snyder was called into City Manager Janice Casteel’s office this morning before lunch and given the option to resign or be fired. After giving it some thought, Snyder chose to resign.

Sources tell us Snyder was caught on video drinking and driving after partying with a woman he is said to have been carrying on a long-term sexual relationship (we choose not to identify her at this time).

Snyder’s tenure as police chief has been marked by drug use, lawlessness and sexual misconduct throughout the department, including officers having sex with minor girls as young as 13.

No word yet on who Snyder’s replacement will be.

Sharon MarrAlthough that account was a bit lurid (the HTC FB crew are a tad more dramatic than we are here at the HTC website), it was spot-on accurate. The following day, after giving it further consideration, HTC FB decided to reveal the name of the woman.

On Dec. 7, 2013 at 12:21 pm, in response to a reader’s comment saying  we should reveal who the woman is, HTC FB wrote:

… Mainstreet Cleveland is a non-profit organization funded by “both the private and public sector.” Snyder’s girlfriend, Sharon Marr, is the director of Mainstreet Cleveland.

And we posted this link to Mainstreet Cleveland: http://www.saghost.com/mainstreet2/story.html

About 30 minutes later (give or take), HTC FB posted an update on the story written by Judy Walton of the Chattanooga Times Free Press, revealing Marr’s name and giving more details:

CLEVELAND CHIEF CAUGHT IN LOVE NEST

by Judy Walton

Cleveland Police Chief Wes Snyder’s sudden retirement may be linked to the discovery of a love nest in a warehouse unit rented to MainStreet Cleveland.

The Cleveland Police Department this afternoon released an incident report dated Dec. 4 in which officers recovered a video showing MainStreet Cleveland Executive Director Sharon Marr entering and spending about 90 minutes in a rental unit with a “white man in a brown suit” who arrived with her in her car.

Cleveland police spokeswoman Evie West this afternoon confirmed the man was identified as Snyder.

Marr could not be reached for comment this afternoon.

Officers admitted to the unit by the warehouse owner found a rug, blankets and pillows and a bottle of brandy, according to the police report.

Snyder submitted his retirement letter Friday.

This may seem like a lot of rigmarole just to reiterate a story that we’ve already told on FaceBook, but we do so for two reasons:

1. Every time we break a story about the unbelievably skanky and/or criminal behavior of public officials in Cleveland/Bradley, we get attacked and labeled as mean-spirited liars who don’t know what we’re talking about. And in every instance we are vindicated when the affiliate news stations finally pick the stories up (The Cleveland Daily Banner always being last to get on-board, or not at all). And, frankly, we’re tired of being called mean-spirited liars by people who actually are mean-spirited liars.

2. Google won’t pick our stories up from FaceBook, so we wanted to roll it over to the website where Google will pick it up. A little self-indulgent self-promotion on our part, but when people Google “Wes Snyder” or related topics, we want HometownCleveland.com to appear in the feed.

So there.

Watch Your Children

Posted on 02 September 2013 by HTC Newshound

HTC-News-HoundAnother scandal for Sheriff Jim Ruth & Chief Deputy Wayne Bird’s BCSO.

Yesterday, we told you that Another Bradley County Sheriff’s Deputy, was under investigation by the TBI. Now for a little more of the story.

Bradley County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Wayne Bird said today that the deputy was placed on administrative leave. He further stated; “We feel it is improper at this time to name the deputy, due to the nature of the allegation,” Bird said. “Hopefully, the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office will have more information soon pending outcome of an Internal Affairs [inquiry] and the TBI investigation.” TBI’s Tate also declined to identify the deputy

We report that the BCSO deputy being protected is BCSO Sergeant Bill Coultry.

Coultry is the third supervisor, in less than six months, on the Ruth/Bird BCSO team that has been 20130902-204750.jpgcaught up in inappropriate and illegal sex acts, and it seems that the girls just get younger and younger. This time the victim is a 12 year old child.

Was Sergeant Coultry nailed by Sheriff Jim Ruth’s “Zero Tolerance” edict, he wrote about in his weekly column, in the Cleveland Daily Banner? No, dear reader, that policy is only for the general citizens or Ruth’s political enemies he is so fond of discussing. Being on Sheriff Ruth’s team lets you have pretty much whatever you want, even if it’s a prepubescent child.

HTC has no compunction to protect Sheriff Ruth, Chief Deputy Bird, or Sergeant Bill Coultry. Hey, Bird Brains, you should feel its “improper” to be having sex with children, and you should be worried about protecting the community, and especially children, from the sexual escapades and illegal activity of your Sheriff’s Office.

Cleveland: Danger City, USA

Cleveland: Danger City, USA

Posted on 03 August 2013 by HometownCleveland

grunge-danger-backgroundChief Wes Snyder might not have control of his people, but at least his city is in the top 100 most dangerous in America.

According to NeighborhoodScout.com, a website that keeps up with such info, out of 100 of the most dangerous cities in the U.S. with populations of 25,000 or more, Cleveland ranks 70th.

We will repeat that: Wes Snyder’s Cleveland is the 70th most dangerous city of its size in the country. Dum da dum dum.

According to the website, your chances of becoming a victim of violent crime in the entire state of Tennessee is one in 164. In Cleveland it’s one in 95. Your chances of becoming a victim of property crime in Tennessee is one in 28. In Cleveland it’s one in 18.

Now we’ll say right off the bat, Snyder could probably reduce both violent crimes and property crimes by simply dealing with the gang problem that he says doesn’t exist. All you have to do is count the tags (gang signs) around town and add up the bangers in lock-up to know it definitely does exist. But hey ~ that’s just us.

One thing we noticed, the website gave the population of Cleveland as 41,723; whereas the official Cleveland website, Clevelandtn.gov, puts that number at 41,285. That’s a difference of 438 people, but it’s possible those 438 people moved to the county for some reason or other, or left the area altogether, we don’t know. But NeighborhoodScout.com claims their figures are based on FBI stats. Maybe they know something we don’t.

So ends another episode of Cleveland: Danger City, USA.

Dum da dum dum.

A Trip Down Memory Lane Via Sex Cop Blvd.

A Trip Down Memory Lane Via Sex Cop Blvd.

Posted on 30 July 2013 by HometownCleveland

(Following is a reprint of the original Westwood Baptist sex cops story written by investigative reporter J. Michael Leonard for the now defunct Bradley News Weekly and published on September 3, 2003. Lee Reese was the chief of police at that time and this story proved to be the spark that ignited “Reesegate” and led to Reese being fired and replaced by Wes Snyder.)

NEW DETAILS RELEASED ON CPD SEX COP

road-signPractically everyone knows by now the story of the two Cleveland police officers who were allegedly caught having sex in the back of an SUV in the Westwood Baptist Church’s parking lot during the morning of March 15.

In fact, it was the incident at Westwood that proved to be the catalyst in the current controversy and scrutiny surrounding Cleveland Chief of Police Lee Reese. Many questions have been raised regarding the early morning March 15 incident at Westwood, as well as a subsequent incident two months later.

Cleveland City Councilman Tim Gobble was trying to get some answers regarding the two incidents when Reese, according to a statement released to the news media on Aug. 24, turned for help to his friend Jackie Moore, the chief of police in Franklin, Tennessee. Moore told Cleveland Daily Banner editor Larry Bowers on Aug. 22 that he is a “special friend” of Gobble’s female supervisor at the Secret Service, Sara Beth Pulliam.

Moore appealed to Pulliam to intercede on Reese’s behalf and she was reportedly only too happy to help. She summoned Gobble to her office in Nashville on or around Aug. 13 and reportedly gave him the option of quitting the City Council or losing his job with the Secret Service. Gobble chose to leave the Council.

Since that time, the Bradley News Weekly has been working with several sources within the Cleveland Police Department who say they feel the public and the city council is being misled about the seriousness of the problems with Reese’s administration.

“The reason I’m talking to you,” one source told us, “is because the CPD has such a bad track record on domestics. I’m putting my job and family on the line to speak out.”

Here is what the Weekly has learned of the two incidents that Gobble was so concerned about in the weeks prior to his resignation.

THE FIRST INCIDENT: EARLY A.M., MARCH 15, 2003

According to sources within the Cleveland Police Department, on March 15, 2003, two CPD police officers (one on-duty married male; one off-duty single female) pulled into the parking lot of the Westwood Baptist Church around 4:00 in the morning. The female was driving an SUV; the male officer was in a CPD patrol car.

The male officer got out of his vehicle and joined the female officer in the back of the SUV.

A female marathon runner who lives nearby happened to be on Westwood’s jogging/walking track at the time. She saw the officers when they arrived, approximately 150 yards away. She saw them get out of their vehicles and climb into the back of the SUV. On her next lap around the track, the witness noticed the SUV rocking.

She stopped and peered through the SUV’s window and saw the two officers, in shadow, in a compromising position. She then interrupted and admonished them. As she continued her run, she saw the two officers get out of the back of the SUV, return to their respective vehicles and leave.

The witness allegedly reported the incident to Lee Reese.

When the male officer’s supervisor heard of the incident and the witness’ report, he recommended the on-duty male officer involved be charged with leaving his sector and “conduct unbecoming an officer.”

Reese told council members there was no evidence the two officers were doing anything but “having coffee.” Therefore, the charge of conduct unbecoming an officer would have seemed unwarranted and was dropped.

The male officer was charged with leaving his zone and suspended for two days. He used two days leave time to cover the suspension.

THE SECOND INCIDENT: MAY 23, 2003

According to sources within the CPD, on May 23, 2003, the male officer involved in the Westwood incident, after an evening of drinking, decided to confess his infidelity to his wife.

The wife did not receive the confession very well and the two got into a heated argument. The wife eventually called the female officer who had also been involved in the Westwood incident and there was an intense argument between the two women over the telephone.

The female officer professed to be in love with the male officer and as the two women argued over the phone, the male officer, who was quite intoxicated by that time, became more and more agitated. He yelled at his wife to get off the phone and, in a state of frustration and rage, allegedly punched holes in the walls of their home and destroyed a dresser. By this time, the couple was in a full-blown domestic situation.

At some point, the officer left the home, on foot, wearing little more than a pair of jogging shorts. After a time, the wife became concerned and contacted a CPD officer who, along with another person from the 911 Call Center, went out to look for him.

The heavily intoxicated officer was located at the Waterville Grocery.

In addition to the responding officer, the officer’s wife and girlfriend also came upon the scene. The responding officer contacted his supervisor, who was working security elsewhere. The supervisor advised the responding officer to defuse the situation by sending everyone home, which he did.

On June 9, a memo was sent through the CPD chain of command, reporting the incident and recommending it be investigated by the Internal Affairs Division (IAD). The memo was reviewed by Reese and Captain Tommy McLain, among others.

On June 10, Reese began the process of sending the investigation through IAD. Shortly after, on that same date, Reese stopped the IAD investigation and the officer was sent for a psyche evaluation instead.

There are many ways the second incident violated the CPD’s own domestic policy 500.44 (which was revised on February 15 of 2003). The fact that no Offense Report went on the record and no supervisor was called to the scene are just two.

When asked about it by Councilman Tim Gobble at the July 28 Cleveland City Council meeting, Reese denied any knowledge of a second incident.

As of press time, the Weekly has learned that the CPD administration has either rewritten Policy 500.44, or is in the process of rewriting Policy 500.44, in an apparent attempt cover for mistakes made during the second incident.

Female City Cop has Domestic Melt-Down

Female City Cop has Domestic Melt-Down

Posted on 28 July 2013 by HometownCleveland

imageIn addition to Chief Wes Snyder’s male sex cops and pedophiles with badges, add one unstable female.

Officer Jennifer McGuire evidently went ballistic on Michigan Avenue last Friday night (July 26), and threatened to commit murder and suicide. During a domestic melt-down, McGuire faced down ten police cars threatening to kill herself and various others until she was subdued and carried away for a “mental evaluation.”

image

Right now details are sketchy, but be patient ~ eventually the Times Free Press will “break” the story. Yes, as a matter of fact, we are being sarcastic.

The whole cheesy episode sounds like a limp-wristed replay of DTF Bobby Queen’s domestic melt-down back in 2008 (Click). And just like Queen, no charges have been filed against McGuire. If he holds true to form, District Attorney Steve Bebb will fix it so she doesn’t have to face any legal consequences.

20130729-005335.jpgIf Jennifer McGuire’s name sounds familiar, it’s because she’s the one who was caught “cavorting” with CPD sex cop Bill Hidgon over at First Baptist after she got her car stuck in the mud. Man, talk about flash-backs … anybody remember the CPD sex-cops caught cavorting at Westwood Baptist in 2003? (Click Here) What is it about Baptist church parking lots that attracts CPD perverts? Don’t they realize these are houses of worship?

Meanwhile, what of Cleveland’s crime rate? Is anyone at the CPD at all concerned about that? According to NeighborhoodScout.com, out of 100 of the most dangerous cities in the U.S., Cleveland ranks 70th (Click For Source). Oh, Wes Snyder, that’s quite a legacy you’re leaving for yourself. Guess it’s a family tradition.

The Grift That Keeps on Grifting

Posted on 24 July 2013 by HometownCleveland

Police Chief Wes Snyder and his frat boy cops should have their own reality show. Or maybe we should say, Police Chief Wes Snyder and his frat boy cops are their own reality show.

First, a very abbreviated recap: In 2006, two female prisoners came forward to accuse Cleveland police officer Ross Allen Wooten of having sex with them in November of 2005. After a TBI investigation, Wooten was charged with two counts of official misconduct. In 2007, he was found not guilty in a court of law of at least one of the charges. It was a case of he-said-she-said, and prisoners, female or otherwise, are not the most credible witnesses.

End of story.

Oops. Not quite.

HTC has learned that Wooten once again has the TBI sniffing around him, and the story is a familiar one. According to a source close to the case, Wooten has been suspended from the CPD pending further investigation. He has been accused of “returning to a crime scene and forcing himself” on a female there. The good news is, the female is said to be “of age.” Looks like Snyder still doesn’t have his guys under control, but at least they’re hitting on grown-ups.
