Alianna's last journey down Kinsman Road offers lessons in the dark: Phillip Morris
Alianna DeFreeze went missing on a dark Kinsman Avenue where many children continue to find their own way to school. CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The light from Marshall's Barbershop flickers onto Kinsman Road at 4:30 most mornings. The shop is known for catering to men who want a haircut or shave before the sun comes up. The late Congressman Louis Stokes was a regular. The rest of the Mount Pleasant neighborhood is not so bright or inviting in the pre-dawn hours. Diagonally across Kinsman Road stands the former St. Cecilia Church, a parish that catered to inner-city Catholics for nearly a century until its membership tanked and Bishop Richard Lennon closed it in 2010. The street corner of the darkened building, since repurposed into a non-denominational church, hosts an RTA bus stop. That is where the beginning of the end started for Alianna DeFreeze, 14, whose body was found three miles away in an abandoned house last Sunday. Christopher Whitaker, a registered sex offender, was arrested Thursday and charged with her murder. Troubling questions now confront the city. How did Alianna go missing at a busy intersection in the shadow of Cleveland Police Fourth District headquarters? How can we better protect our children as we send them off to schools in neighborhoods where predators lurk and danger constantly fills the streets? Alianna's murder is a jarring wake-up call that comes at the cost of a teen's life. We know how her tragic story ultimately ends. Now we must determine how it began two Thursday mornings ago, and what lessons we can learn. We know that Alianna's final trip down Kinsman was in the dark aboard an RTA bus. What did she see? Who saw her? Was she ever really safe during any part of her journey to school? I rode the No. 14 RTA bus early Thursday morning, and walked along Kinsman Road and Union Avenue to try and get a sense of what Alianna's final pre-dawn ride and walk might have been like. I was stunned and worried by what I saw: a large number of children moving about. Unescorted children. These children, even the larger ones, were easily identifiable by their book bags, the way they talked, or their plastic RTA bus passes, which some of them wore around their necks. A week earlier, Alianna was one of those children. She boarded the No. 14 bus just after 6:30 a.m. on her way to E Prep & Village Prep Woodland Hills, a high-performing charter school. It's a 15-minute RTA ride that took her through the heart of a still-darkened neighborhood filled with beauty salons, social service agencies, collapsing buildings and churches -- lots of churches. She got off the bus at East 91st Street, near Union Avenue, and quickly went missing. A week later, in the wake of her highly publicized kidnapping and murder, countless children still were boarding public transportation or walking along the darkened streets without chaperones. Why? I wasn't the only one pondering that question. "I am surprised at the number of children I see out here by themselves. I'm keeping an eye on them," said Charles Lewis, who works for One Six Security, which provides security for some Cleveland charter schools. "If I see a child who's acting nervous or just has an uncomfortable look, I will walk with them and make sure they're OK. But as long as they're laughing and acting like children, I'll just keep an eye on them and make sure they get to where they need to go." Lewis was standing down the street from the Fourth District police station when we spoke Thursday. He said he was moved to the Kinsman and Union Avenue intersection near Alianna's school after she went missing. He now spends at least four hours a day watching for children as they transfer from the No. 14 bus and get onto the No. 10 (the route that Alianna took before she went missing). But why do we wait before we act? Why do we reassign professional crossing guards and child protectors like Lewis to dangerous intersections after a life has already been snatched? How many more dangerous sexual predators walk among us? How do we intend to protect our children from them? This city must address those questions now and in the coming mayoral election. How can we continue to push school reforms, when the path to the schoolhouse door is fraught with danger? Cleveland has lately been heralded as a city brimming with comeback stories and economic potential. We hosted a highly praised Republican National Convention, and our sports teams have generated a form of social currency that is good for the hospitality industry and some downtown development. What does it all mean if a seventh grader can't ride a bus safely to school? The city and its schools have a primary role to play in protecting the young after they leave the safekeeping of their parents. But so do neighborhood anchors. The number of darkened churches that Alianna passed on her final morning led me to ask what some might consider an unfair question. What if the Mount Pleasant churches along Kinsman Road turned on their lights each morning when children headed off to school? Would it help? Would it cause a predator or any other criminal to think twice before striking? Maybe it does take a lighted village of churches to help guide a child -- especially in dangerous hours before dawn. Alianna's final journey down Kinsman Road started next to a dark church, across the street from a well-lit barbershop. The barbershop is considered a neighborhood anchor and a safe place. Then the girl's life journey was brutally interrupted near an intersection in which she should have been safe. Every neighborhood has a stake in protecting its young. It's a matter of wanting and finding a way to make a difference. That is one of the necessary and painful lessons of Alianna's death.

Cleveland's Public Square debate enters the national spotlight
Cleveland's decision to ban buses from Public Square has attracted national scrutiny. CLEVELAND, Ohio - Mayor Frank Jackson's decision to ban buses in Public Square has caught the attention of a national public transit planning consultant. Jarrett Walker, who has designed transit networks all over the world, today wrote a blog post entitled, "How (Not) to Wreck Your Transit System" highlighting the local debate. "Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson has announced that new bus lanes that were designed into city's main square will be closed to buses, thus choking the bus system's circulation at its very heart," Walker writes. Please share this with the downtown business leaders in your life. -- Jarrett Walker (@humantransit) February 3, 2017 He was alerted to the Public Square debate by a story this week in Citylab detailing the unresolved situation in the square. The Cleveland situation represents a theme he sees repeated across the world as cities struggle to support public transit.   "This is an instance of a general problem, which is the tendency of the decisions about the functions of transit to be based on how the transit looks rather than the rights and needs of the citizens who use it," Walker said during a phone interview Friday. "I think that's a problem that runs across a range of different civic interests." In his piece, Walker discusses how cities often try to remove transit from the public eye in order to serve the aesthetics of a planned space like Public Square, which recently underwent a major renovation. In closing Public Square, people say Mayor Jackson forgot about them "Downtown business leaders, you have a critical role in shaping your transportation future," Walker writes. "The most critical decision you make is whether to risk letting downtown succeed as a city, a place where everyone has a right to be, and move and be safe, as opposed to trying to replicate the controlled experience of a shopping mall, where unwanted people can be easily removed." The Plain Dealer sent a copy of Walker's article to City Hall but Jackson's administration declined to comment on it. Dan Williams, media relations director for the city, said the administration had not seen the article and did not want to comment.  The city, which first closed Public Square to buses on Aug. 1, currently has the bus lanes through the square blocked by traffic signs. That closure of the stretch of Superior Avenue that runs through the square has caused debates among the local community about the importance of transit in the city.  RTA completing safety analysis on Public Square

Sex offender charged in slaying of Cleveland teen Alianna DeFreeze
Christopher Whitaker, 44, is charged with aggravated murder in the death of 14-year-old Alianna DeFreeze. Christopher WhitakerCleveland police  CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The South Euclid man arrested Thursday in connection with the slaying of 14-year-old Alianna DeFreeze has been charged. Christopher Whitaker, 44, is charged with aggravated murder. He is expected to make his first court appearance on Saturday.   Officials have not said how Whitaker killed Alianna. The Cuyahoga County Medical ruled that she died from "multiple injuries."  Whitaker, a convicted sex offender, is accused of killing Alianna, who had mental disabilities, as she transferred busses on her way to E Prep and Village Prep Woodland Hills Campus on Jan. 26. She boarded a bus about 6:45 a.m. that day and surveillance video showed she got off the bus on East 93rd and Kinsman. She walked west towards a McDonald's but never went into the restaurant. She wasn't seen again until about 7:30 p.m. Sunday, when Cleveland police officers scoured the neighborhood trying to find her. They found her dead in an abandoned building in the 9400 block of Fuller Avenue. The medical examiner, who believed the body belonged to Alianna, was unable to positively identify for three days until they matched up her dental records, the medical examiner said.  In a Facebook post, Alianna's school remembered her as a "gentle, kind and beautiful person-- inside and out. She has a smile that can light up a room and a giggle that is contagious." Whitaker served four years in prison for a 2005 sexual battery and felonious assault conviction.  He also has prior convictions dating to 1996 for aggravated theft, burglary and criminal trespassing.
