Coeymans Town Justice and acting Ravena Village Justice Phillip Crandall Resigns and Exposes Corruption in the Coeymans Police Department, the Coeymans Town Court, and in sitting Coeymans Board Members! Forced to Resign but Goes Public.
INSIDER EXPOSES COEYMANS, RAVENA CORRUPTION!
When reporting on corruption, harassment, and intimidation involving local government, local police, and local courts it sometimes feels like we’re fighting city hall. Sometimes it might even look like we are grinding axes for some poor bastards. But when an insider, a local politician and a sitting judge gets railroaded because he’s not a company boy and is rocking the boat, and when that insider goes public with his insider knowledge and experiences: That’s news. But when the insider-turned-informer actually confirms what we’ve been writing about and exposing on this blog, well…THAT”S GREAT! Judge Phillip Crandall may have been forced to resign by some unidentified “complainant” who didn’t like what Crandall had to say, and decided Crandall had to go, but now Crandall has gone public with insider information that confirms everything we have been saying all along about how the Coeymans police department operates and how Coeymans insiders are getting special treatment both by the Coeymans cops and by the Coeymans courts. It also points to the Coeymans town board as being accomplices in the illegal activity by not doing a damned thing to correct the criminal activities going on in the Coeymans police department and with some people who think that they are special and above the law. Here’s the story:
Mr Crandall was apparently targeted before the November 2013 elections that removed the majority of corrupt Coeymans town board members. In that election, two very close friends of the Coeymans police department, Thomas Boehm and Dawn Rogers, were ousted from the Coeymans town board, leaving only Tom Dolan to watch the Coeymanazi p.d.’s back and keep Gregory Darlington out of hot water. The November 2013 elections changed all that and Darlington’s ace-in-the-hole vaporized. Now Darlington is totally exposed and so is the Coeymans p.d.’s criminal activity. Ever wonder why “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca got out real quick? The public’s told he “resigned/retired”but we think there’s more behind that story. We’ll find out. Now we hear that old Dirty-Hands Jerry is working for the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs! Do they know what a snake they have hired?
First Kerry Thompson, Darlington’s brother-in-law and hireling, is pulled out of Coeymans by the Albany County Sheriff and given a desk job, then the elections, Deluca resigns, is there something in the air? Trouble for the Coeymans p.d.?
Well, back to Crandall. Unlike George Dardiani, the unethical company boy, team-player town justice who is an insider with the RCS Central School District mob (he was food services manager at the high school, so Dardiani can count on the support of the RCS-nazis, and his wife is a retired school nurse). Dardiani plays the political game and knows how to take orders from his supporters, so you can well imagine the kind of justice he metes out. During the 2012 school board elections he committed a serious violation of ethics and a formal complaint was filed with the New York State Unified Court System’s Commission on Judicial Conduct. The complaint was fully documented with photographic evidence and cited a number of sections of the Judicial Code of Ethics (New York State Judicial Law) but the complaint was dismissed with no action taken. Not even a warning! But that was a different time, wasn’t it? The democraps were holding the winning hands almost uniformly throughout the region. As long as Dardiani obeyed orders, he was safe and the Albany county democrap machine would protect him. That doesn’t seem to be the case anymore.
Same is true of sock puppet village justice Harold “Hal” Warner, Ravena “trustee” Nancy Warner’s husband, and close friend of the Delucas (Cathy Deluca runs the illegal money pit the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, an anal child of ex-mayor John Bruno and Nancy Warner). So you can see the conspiracy and collusion that’s was going on between the Village of Ravena under John Bruno and the corruption in the Coeymans police department and the Coeymans town board. Crandall was in the middle of it all, witnessing what was going on in Ravena and what was going on in Coeymans. If he had an ounce of ethics and integrity, which it appears he did, he probably opened his mouth once too often and so they decided to get rid of him.
Think of it this way: The pre-November 2013 Coeymans town board is protecting the Coeymans police department and getting favors in return. We know about Tom Dolan’s son who has a drug problem but we never hear about it in the police blotter or in the local media. Ever wonder why? And what about Dawn Rogers’ daughter’s drinking problems and the DWIs? Not a peep, right? And Dawn LaMountains’ (she’s Coeymans p.d. chief Darlingtons “confidential secretary.”) sons’ speeding and property damage to local residents’ property? Or what about the campaign sign vandalism in which police department kids were involved? Why did all that get swept under the table? Well, when Tom Boehm, Dawn Rogers and Tom Dolan were on the Coeymans town board, all the insiders were getting special treatment by the Coeymans police department and the Coeymans town court.
Now look at the special situation of Ravena and the Coeymans police department. Ever wonder why John Bruno and Nancy Warner, supported by the other two lackies, now ex-trustees, Martin Case and Rocco Persico, handed Cathy Deluca a new playpen called the Ravena Health and Fitness Center? Ever wonder why they got all generous with taxpayer money to put Cathy Deluca in her new playpen, get her a non-competitive civil service classification, give her a starting salary of $30,000 a year plus complete benefits, and get this, the new Ravena budget gives Cathy Deluca a $900 pay raise (and the 2014-2015 Ravena Proposed Budget allocates another $105,000 to support the Ravena Health and Fitness Center! If mayor-elect Bill Misuraca and his new village council let that happen, they all need to be lynched!). Cathy Deluca has no qualifications and has already managed at least two fitness clubs into failure! The Ravena Health and Fitness Center is losing money and the projected figures in the 2014-15 Ravena budget actually shows the RHFC will be operating in the RED by more than $50,000 in 2014-15!!!! It’s not getting the members it needs to even come close to breaking even, it pays no rent or utilities ao add rent losses and utility bills to the losses! (The RCS Community library, which was rushed out of that space by Bruno and Warner paid rent at least!)
Why the special treatment for Cathy Deluca? Ever think that maybe something was going on between the Bruno mafia, Ravena village hall, and the Coeymans police department and somebody had to get paid off? Like when bully-cop Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca was “investigator” in the Coeymans police department and had access to privileged and confidential police records and files? How about that for political cash!
And ever wonder why Cathy Deluca was never investigated and charged for falsely reporting an incident? Or why Coeymans police officer Jason Albert was never disciplined for obstruction of justice? Why wasn’t Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca and RCS teacher and union rep Matt Miller arrested for harassing and threatening a woman speaker at a RCS school board meeting? Or why citizens’ complains just vaporize when they hit Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlingtons’ desk? Or why certain things make the local media, the democrap rag the Albany Times Useless and the local village hall newsletter calling itself the Ravena News Herald?
Did you know that Ravena village trustee Nancy Warner, ex-mayor Bruno’s bitch, oversees the Ravena village court…the court where Harold “Hal” Warner is judge? Now isn’t that cozy? Nancy Warner is so far up John Bruno’s arse she can count his fillings. Nancy Warner is in bed with Cathy Deluca. Cathy Deluca is married to former Coeymans p.d. cop Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca, who is Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington’s pet snake, Darlington is doing favors for Coeymans board members and their families, keeping them off the police blotter, and Coeymans town justice George Dardiani is a sock puppet, playing the game and taking his orders. Former Coeymans board members Tom Boehm and Dawn Rogers, and sitting board member Tom Dolan make certain that the town board doesn’t take any adverse action against the Coeymans p.d. and the Coeymans town court makes certain that any crimes committed by insiders or their family members are “negotiated” down to charges of “parking on the sidewalk.”
We’ve been writing about all this and more but now it is being confirmed by a Coeymans town judge who was also an acting Village of Ravena judge, an insider with firsthand knowledge! Isn’t it interesting how it all comes out once the tower of corruption starts to crumble? All it takes is a bad move by the puppet-masters and the shit hits the proverbial fan. That’s exactly what’s happening now.
Think about it: Voters in THREE regional local elections, Coeymans, New Baltimore and Ravena, have tossed out long-standing elected officials and put in new majorities. Ravena made the loudest statement by dumping mayor John Bruno who had 6 terms as mayor under his belt, and a virtual strangle-hold on the village of Ravena, and was choking the village to death. Voters are sick and tired of the lies, the favoritism and the corruption and are growing the cojones to change things…at least at the local level. But that’s where all change has to start: locally. And this blog has been an important force in making that change because we report on what you don’t hear in the News Channel 10 or read in the Albany Times Useless or the Ravena News Herald. The reason: NOBODY OWNS US!
Now, back to Crandall, again… Someone with some political influence back in early or mid-2013 filed a complaint with the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct, and the Commission, a politically appointed board, actually went ahead with an investigation and ultimately found Coeymans town justice and acting Ravena village justice, Phillip Crandall, guilty and recommended that he be removed from the bench and never run for judicial office again. Crandall says he would have fought the decision but was already $4,000 in the hole and decided not to fight it because he couldn’t afford it (sound familiar?). BUT, Crandall decided to go public with what he knew, at least as far as the charges against him were concerned, and you can read all about that in the local rags. What we’re interested in is what he’s not telling and the rest of what he knows.
But there’s still the question of whether Crandall would have come forward with all of this out of a sense of integrity and loyalty to the Constitution he swore to defend, and in defense of the people who voted for him, if he hadn’t been on the receiving end of his cronies treachery? We mustn’t forget that when he was elected, he was actually trained by that crook and corrupt Albany ex-cop, Hal Warner, so that doesn’t say much for ol’ Phily, does it? Did he come forward ony because he has an axe to grind now that they’ve put a knife deeply into his back? We’ll probably never know the answer to that one but we still have Crandall to milk for more information.
You see, dear readers, there are a number of Notices of Claim still pending that can turn into some lawsuits that can do some real damage when they’re filed. Those lawsuits directly affect the village of Ravena and the town of Coeymans and misconduct of town and village employees, elected officials, and the Coeymans police department. When the previous crooks were in office, it was an uphill battle just to get information but now the scene has changed. Not only are the gatekeepers voted out and new people are in, people who can make things happen, but now we have a disgruntled former judge who has been screwed by the democrap machine, including crooked New York State Supreme Court Judge Joseph Teresi’s own son, Gregory Teresi, who is a village and town prosecutor (that dolt David Wukitsch is the inept town attorney, even though the town of New Baltimore’s new board had the sense to fire his ass!). Judge, now Mr Phillip Crandall, by going public with his insider information regarding his knowledge acquired while a judge has waived any claim to confidentiality and can now be called on to give testimony in other issues, especially the issues relating to the Town of Coeymans and the misconduct and criminal activity of the Coeymans police department and its employees, especially chief Gregory Darlington and ex-investigator Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca!
Just think of the information that will now become available now that the wall-of-silence has been cracked and the raw sewerage is leaking out! Just think about how we now have the opportunity to uncover the hidden connections between the crooks in Ravena village hall, the Delucas connection between village and town, the dirty favors and conspiracies that have been hatched. Just think about it for a moment! Now we have an insider who has cracked and someone who knows about the deals made in Coeymans town hall, the Coeymans police department, Ravena village hall, the confidential information that was violated, the civil rights violations, the laws that were broken, the obstruction of justice. All the crooks and criminals and all the criminal acts that were being paid for by Town of Coeymans and Village of Ravena taxpayers. All that was needed was for one insider to feel he got screwed by his buddies and … Well, this development is more than we could have wished for!
This development will no doubt reach some high places in Albany and will also get some sneaky bastards in New York State departments in some hot water, too. We’re thinking specifically of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and some of their questionable activities locally with zoning issues, waterways, etc. the Albany County Planning Board and local planning boards will likely also be scrutinized, like Laverne “Larry” Conrad’s (Coeymans code enforcement), Carver’s, Michael J. Biscone, and others’ cover-ups. The Coeymans police department and its former and present employees will have to answer some very sticky questions about violations of constitutional law, civil rights violations, hiring practices, abuse of public office and, worst of all, the many cases of obstruction of justice. The glaring examples have already been mentioned above but bear mentioning again: failing apprehend, to charge or to prosecute village and town officials or their family members for crimes committed, but violating other citizens’ rights with impunity! Not only the Department of Environmental Conservation (village of Ravena waste water and sewerage, the Camille Lane properties that buried protected waterway (Laverne Conrad and Michael Biscone, etc.) but also the New York State Unified Court System (disciplines judges (only when convenient): Dardiani? Warner?), the Committee on Professional Conduct of the Third Appellate Division (disciplines attorneys: what about the glaring conflicts of interest of Gregory Teresi, David Wukitsch, Micheal J. Biscone?!? ), the New York State Office of the Attorney General, the New York State Comptroller’s Office (audits the village and the town and has overlooked corrupt practices like Nancy Warner overseeing her own husband’s court!)
When the shit hits the fan, the Albany County Sheriff, Craig Apple, who is a democrap lackey will be useless, since he’s got his own skeletons that are scratching their way out of the closet and likely to become full-fledged brain-eating zombies (who’ll probably starve in Albany because of the lack of brains), that may play havoc on his re-election chances. We can’t think of a single New York State Supreme Court judge in Albany who isn’t politically tainted or just plain corrupt who could hear any of the cases, so they’ll probably have to go out of county. The Albany County DA is corrupt and incompetent, he’s simply a token person-of-color (he’s not really African-American, since he’s from Cape Verde, West Africa) to carry the Albany democrap party on the race card, he’s a criminal who should be prosecuted like yesterday. We are still wondering where the local Albany field office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the FBI, and their local special agent, Mr Andrew Vale is checking in on all of this. He can’t be all that sharp if he’s assigned to backwater Albany, and certainly has been a real dunce when it comes to apprehending or prosecuting any local corruption or obstruction of justice. If Andrew Vale were on the ball, he’d have cleaned out the Coeymans police department long ago, but he hasn’t yet. Seems all local law enforcement, prosecutors, and courts will do is go after the poor bastard who can’t afford a proper defense; they can’t even do that right without harassment, intimidation, violating constitution law and civil rights, either. But we already knew that, Crandall is only confirming it from the inside.
