From WEWS — On the steps of Cleveland City Hall Wednesday, representatives from the NAACP, Black Lives Matter, the Norman S. Minor Bar Association and other community representatives called for the removal of Cleveland Police Monitor Hassan Aden after the alleged forced removal of Case Western Reserve University Professor Ayesha Bell Hardaway as part of the city’s police monitoring team.
Brandon Brown, Vice President with the Norman S. Minor Bar Association, described Aden as someone who “lacks minimum qualifications for the position."
“Given his lack of experience using legal analysis and his lack of local expertise and failed experience in other cities as monitor such as Seattle, we cannot help but question his ability and his impartiality to serve as the monitor in Cleveland,” Brown said.
Brown said it is “imperative” that the monitoring team carry out its duty and hold the city accountable for making changes required under the consent decree.
