Ohio Supreme Court justices heard arguments Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2017, for and against executing Thomas, whose lawyers argue he had poor legal assistance at trial.
"I've got people of color who don't want people of color to move into the city," says Southfield Police Chief Joseph Thomas, who is himself black. "It's not a black-white thing. This is a black-black thing. My six-figure blacks are very concerned about multiple-family, economically depressed people moving into rental homes and apartments, bringing in their bad behaviors."
