On Monday, October 21, 2013, the first day of this post, the Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares, visited this blog a total of 24 times, spending a total of 3 hours 29 minutes and 35 seconds getting an education. Do you think we have them worried? It seems that not only Kerry Thompson, Jason Albert have nothing to do. The Albany County District Attorney, P. David Soares spends almost half of his day on this blog! Can the bastid!
A reader recently advised us that Kerry Thompson, administrative assistant to Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington, was promoted to be deputy chief. We couldn’t believe what we were reading after all that was going on in the Coeymans police department involving Kerry Thompson, Gerald Deluca, Jason Albert and, of course, Gregory Darlington. We questioned how Coeymans would dare do something like that and the reader replied that she had read it on the Albany County Sheriff Department Facebook page. That was an irresistible bit of intelligence so we visited the Albany County Sheriff’s Department Facebook page and almost fell off our chair.
A Little History Lesson: Scott Giroux was a Albany County Sheriff’s Department captain at the same time Craig Apple was a lieutenant. Scott Giroux was police chief when there was a Ravena-Coeymans joint police department, and Giroux was brought in to clean up the law enforcement mess in Ravena-Coyemans and to merge the two dysfunctional police departments. Having done that and proved his mettal, Giroux then went on to accept a position with the Federal Bureau of Investitation (FBI). When cleaning up the Coeymans police department Giroux fired a number of decrepit officers, inluding Gerald “Dirty-Hands Deluca,” but when Do-Do cop Gregory Darlington was elevated from useless sargeant to become Coeymans police chief, Darlington hired all the junko cops back, who Giroux fired during his cleanup. That’s the situation we have now. Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple is a local boy, from the RCS area, and rumor is that there is no love lost between him and the Coeymans police department. That raises some sticky questions: (1) What’s Apple doing with Kerry Thompson now? and (2) Now that Scott Giroux is with the FBI, why isn’t he — or is he — keeping tabs on the goings on in the Coeymans p.d., maybe waiting for the right moment to pounce? Could that be the reason Apple is calling Thompson back into the Albany County Sheriff’s Department with an “apparent” promotion. We say “apparent” because it might be the only way to get Thompson under control without excessive embarassment to the Sheriff’s Department.
Has Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple Gone Apple Sauce in the Brain?
Has Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple Gone Rotten?
Doesn’t Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple Know What Thompson has been Doing in Coeymans?
Maybe Apple has forgotten that the position he holds as Albany County Sheriff is an elected position. Maybe he wants a very short career as an elected official. Maybe he’s been spending too much time around the likes of Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares. Whatever it is, Apple has probably made the worst decision of his career by giving Kerry Thompson any semblance of credibility. Or is it really as dumb as it first appears? Maybe Craig is not as stupid as this makes him look. Maybe there’s a strategy behind all of this to keep Thompson more closely under surveillance by putting him under Chief Deputy Courcelle, who can keep the mutt on a short leash?
If Thompson is being assigned to this new position for any other reason than to keep closer tabs on his rogue activities at taxpayer expense, it certainly isn’t because he’s such a great cop or because he has any ethics. We know that from his performance in Coeymans. He sucks.
But what we don’t understand is how Thompson, now employed at least part-time by the Coeymans police department as Coeymans police chief Darlington’s “administrative assistant,” is going to be able to give the Albany County Sheriff’s Department its money’s worth while doing the same for the taxpayers of the town of Coeymans. Seems like it’s an impossibility from where we’re sitting.
Thompson’s performance in Coeymans has been far from stellar…
Thompson’s performance in Coeymans has been far from stellar. Just count how many raids were botched up and how many search warrants were defective on his watch. And now he’s supposed to assist Chief Deputy Courcelle to manage law enforcement in Albany County? Just like that moron P. David Soares seems to manage to screw up everything he gets his idiotic hands on. All we can say is that Albany County Law enforcement is in as very sorry state, indeed, if Thompson’s going to manage in Albany like he’s managed in Coeymans.
Coeymans police department has really come under fire for its mismanagement…All on Thompson’s Watch
Perhaps it’s gotten too hot in Coeymans with all the scandal surrounding his hire in the first place. That was a bad move by the Coeymans town board and appears even worse now that the Coeymans police department has really come under fire for its mismanagement, its violations of civil rights, its botched up raids, the many scandals surrounding its employment of law enforcement dregs like Ryan Johnson, Gerald Deluca, Danielle Crosier, the botched up investigations and claims of obstruction of justice, and the list goes on and on and on. All on Thompson’s watch.
Moral Questions like his alleged toying around with Coeymans police department Barbie doll, Daniele Crosier
Conflicts of interest, like his marriage to Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington’s sister, and moral questions like his alleged toying around with Coeymans police department Barbie doll, Daniele Crosier, certainly haven’t helped the already very drab image of the Coeymans police department on his watch.
And speaking of conflicts of interest: Word on the street is that alleged Thompson squeeze, Daniele Crosier, was placed in her new FT position with the Coeymans police department on the conditioin that she pass an physical agility test (required by civil service). She took the test the other day and guess who administered/oversaw it — Yes! You guessed it! Kerry Thompson. Thompson is allegedly not certified or qualified to administer the test so it should not have been authorized. On top of that fact this is yet another blatant conflict of interest. And the big question is: Did she really pass the test?
All of that information that would get someone canned in a New-York-minute if it happened in private sector doesn’t seem to faze Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple, though.
Kerry Thompson can’t even seem to manage law enforcement when it comes to his own kids. We’ve reported on his one son’s recent reckless driving on Route 143 and destruction of a mailbox and damage to another care and how that was all kept quiet by Thompson (His kid’s a police dispatcher now in the Coeymans police department!). And we’re still hot on the trail of his other son’s escapades stealing and destroying candidates’ campaign signs, a crime caught on video by at least two neighbors. But all that means nothing to Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple or Chief Deputy Courcelle.
Or is Thompson raiding the evidence room? He looks like a cocaine addict with a heroin habit!
Has anyone noticed how much weight Thompson has lost in the past couple of months? Is the alleged fun-on-the-farm with officer Crosier that hot? Or is Thompson raiding the evidence room? He looks like a cocaine addict with a heroin habit! Or is he just plain sick? Is his new assignment a sympathy assignment? Don’t you think we taxpayers and public should some answers to these questions?
Whatever is the reason, we think it’s SCANDALOUS that Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple is making Kerry Thompson look like a saint! If the Coeymans town supervisor and town board continue to pay Thompson to be Do-Do cop Gregory Darlington’s office-boy-toy, then the entire Coeymans town board should be tarred, feathered, and shipped downriver on a leaky barge!
Now Kerry Thompson is going to help “manage law enforcement” in the Albany County Sheriff’s Department. Are we the only one’s who smell the stink?
