I do not believe the police should stop "Anyone they do not know" because that would be a lot of people. They don't know me.
That being said, there have been many thefts in the area and I believe a vehicle late at night would be subject to suspicion. ANY vehicle...
They need to be more investigative rather than taking premature steps not warranted. They usually can pull up any records by the license plate and that should be enough.

The problem is that the Powell Police department is headed by a modern day Barney Fiffe. This albatross has been around for over 15 years and in spite of some pretty horrific events . The most recent events are just icing on the cake. It all starts at the top and a head needs to roll.

It is sad that a minority business owner had to go to City Council to report the apparent racially motivated stops by Powell Police Chief Gary Vest's officers. Funny how Vest became very cordial etc. to the business owner after the City Council meeting -wonder if his job is in on the line, like Brenners?

Powell City Council should also develop guidelines for getting rid of both Vest and Brenner. With the shakedown of Dr. Dove etc Vest has three strikes and Brenner she's stiffed Uncle Sam and the taxpayers.

Seems like the Chief Vest has not hired any black Officers for his Police force. Wonder Why??
How Many

It would seem reasonable that Powell City Council would investigate how many black Police Officers have been interviewed and/or hired by Gary Vest during his 15 year tenure as Powell's Chief of Police.

Why didn't Chief Vest investigate or do anything about the profiling in 2010? How many instances of "what are you doing here" pullovers were made in 2010? How many were after 12 am? Were these pullovers discussed in staff meetings? How many NAACP meetings is Chief Vest going to attend and for how long. When is Powell going to hire a black police officer?

The fact that the owner stated the Sheriffs office (which is run by a black man) started the "harassment" seems to have escaped those on the topix forum.
Powell Stops

Chief Vest says that Powell Police will stop anyone they don't know. Then he goes on Channel 4 and attempts to soften his stance by saying that Powell Police must investigate if they receive a call about someone in a car being parked at odd hours.
Did the Powell Police Department receive any calls justifying each stop of Dr. Dove and her employees?? Where is Al Sharpton??

Look at Powell City Government. What is the percentage of black employees in the police and fire departments? for that matter the percentage of all Powell employees?

If you live or work in Powell Ohio drop off a copy of your drivers license and car registration at the Powell Police Dept. Then Chief Vest cannot claim he o his department does not know who you are.
