Lorain man wanted in robbery added to fugitive list


Jerome Hamilton

A Lorain man has been added to the most recent “Dangerous Dozen” list.

Jerome Hamilton, 26, is one of two new additions to the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force’s list of most wanted fugitives.

Hamilton is wanted for multiple warrants, including robbery, parole violation, failure to register as a sex offender and contempt of court.

The robbery charge stems from an incident in November 2013 where he allegedly robbed a woman using intimidation and force by knocking her to the ground and taking more than $400 in cash from her.

Hamilton is a member of the Heartless Felons gang and has a violent criminal history.

Arzell Nash, 28, of Lorain, was added to the list last month, and remains at large. He is wanted for allegedly shooting two men outside a bar in Lorain in November.

Anyone with information about any of the Dangerous Dozen is asked to contact the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force at 1-866-4WANTED or text keyword WANTED and tip to 847411 (tip411). Tipsters can remain anonymous and reward money is available.

      While people of color make up about 30 percent of the United States’ population, they account for 60 percent of those imprisoned. The prison population grew by 700 percent from 1970 to 2005, a rate that is outpacing crime and population rates. The incarceration rates disproportionately impact men of color: 1 in every 15 African American men and 1 in every 36 Hispanic men are incarcerated in comparison to 1 in every 106 white men.
      According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, one in three black men can expect to go to prison in their lifetime. Individuals of color have a disproportionate number of encounters with law enforcement, indicating that racial profiling continues to be a problem. A report by the Department of Justice found that blacks and Hispanics were approximately three times more likely to be searched during a traffic stop than white motorists. African Americans were twice as likely to be arrested and almost four times as likely to experience the use of force during encounters with the police.

      African American youth have higher rates of juvenile incarceration and are more likely to be sentenced to adult prison. According to the Sentencing Project, even though African American juvenile youth are about 16 percent of the youth population, 37 percent of their cases are moved to criminal court and 58 percent of African American youth are sent to adult prisons.

    I bet you will never guess which judge let him out on bail?

    I will give you a hint, his last name begins with a “B”

    Despite a criminal record since he became an adult, the recent completion of a three year sentence, or “vacation,” in prison, he was left out on a paltry bond of only $10,000.

    Now we can’t find him. Maybe, just maybe, we should never have let him out on bond? I mean, who would have thought he would ever get in trouble again and not appear for what is going to be a longer sentence?

    He probably should have just shown up, he got a lucky break when Judge B got the case. He would likely have walked away with community control.

    They should have Cillo prosecute this one, just to get him out of Judge B’s courtroom, so he can finally get the sentence he deserves!

    But then again, I am sure he is a loving father and great family-man, just like all the criminals on hear. He is just a little mixed-up and misunderstood. He loves animals, kittens and puppies.

    If I hear another family member make that statement I am going to puke!

      Cillo isn’t much of a prostitutor anyhow , he would plea him down to a parking ticket anyhow , either way he is back on the streets with no punishment .
