Best News of the Year!
But reading the October 2, 2014, issue of the Ravena News Herald’s report on Darlington’s abrupt departure from the Coeymans police department, leaving his brother rats high and dry, you get a pretty rosy but very made-up fantasy of what was going on in Coeymans town hall these past months. To be sure, Coeymans town supervisor Steven Flach discussed Darlington’s “retirement” many times, but those discussions weren’t as friendly as the News Herald paints them. And if the town of Coeymans awards a “retirement badge” to Darlington, that would just show how hypocritical and dishonest our Coeymans elected officials are. It’s about time they called a rat a rat and stopped rewarding incompetence and downright evil! Just give Darlington his walking papers…he’s walked away with over $100,000 a year in salary and benefits and now can look forward to a fat pension check each month. Isn’t that enough?
Coeymans’ Incompetent & Corrupt Police Chief Gregory “DoDo Cop” Darlington Resigns
Did the Coeymans Town Board Secretly Give Him His Walking Papers and Allow Him to Resign?
(Preliminary Report. Not yet confirmed due to late-breaking information.)
We can only imagine he’s jumping ship like the fat coward he is to take another parasitic position with some garbage-collecting public-funded job where he can continue to suck up taxpayer dollars by just being the widget he is. He’ll most likely have something waiting for him in that other useless dolt’s office, Albany district attorney David Soares, Mr Race-Card, where Darlington’s wife works as a clerk/administrative assistant. That would add another lump of corruption and incompetence to the Albany county corruption club.
This is news to celebrate because when you cut off the head of the snake, the body will die. This may be spelling the end to the Coeymanazi club known as the Coeymans police department.
The Coeymans police department, according to the Albany Times Union, has 25 full-time and part-time “officers”. Isn’t that a bit much for a town with barely 8,000 residents? And even then the Coeymans p.d. can’t control traffic in and around Ravena and Coeymans hamlet. How many more would they need? Two NYS troopers seem to be able to do the job from what we’ve been seeing on Rt 9w and Rt 144 this past week! That about sums it up: 2 NYS troopers = 25 Coeymans cops!
Coeymans town supervisor Stephen Flach and Darlington have had a very bumpy relationship in the past. Darlington continues to spread lies and misinformation claiming that Flach is giving himself raises. That’s a bare-face lie and Darlington knows it! Flach never did give himself a “raise” as described by Darlington. Flach’s predecessor was part time and so the supervisor’s position was part-time compensated. When Flach came on it was full-time and so the town board, not Flach, brought the town supervisor’s salary up to fulltime. Fair is fair. Darlington is lying — some things never change — and is spreading this misinformation to make himself look like the victim. Darlington is a lying piece of … and it’s about time everyone admitted that fact.
While Darlington is spreading his venom an lies, Flach has at least kept his professional dignity. When asked by the Times Useless about Darlington’s abrupt resignation, Flach merely replied: “There’s not really much else to say.”
But Flach suggests that he and the Coeymans town board may be looking for a replacement for Darlington. That, Mr Flach, would be a big mistake. Now’s your chance to get the Albany County Sheriff and the NYS Police to take over law enforcement in Coeymans and save a bundle in the budget. Mr Flach, if you let this opportunity pass by without taking advantage of it, you might as well resign, too!
Eliminate the Coeymans Money Pit Police Department NOW!
Get rid of the family business, the Coeymans police department. Eliminate the rest of the parasites. Dispatchers OUT! They’re only duplicating an effective system already in place. Then clean out the basement, fumigate, evict the vermin and continue the clean up in Coeymans!
Now we have to deal with temporary Coeymans police commissioners who, according to reports, are: George Langdon—known to be a first-class weasel—, Peter Masti—a genuine dud; leave him alone and he’ll just sit there writing his socialist letters-to-the-editor for the Troy Record—, and Laverne “Larry” Conrad—he’s already known for his corrupt activities as Code Enforcement officer and his shady real-estate finaglings and underhanded DEC bunglings— but at least they don’t parade around in a uniform, they don’t drive around in a SUV paid for by Coeymans taxpayers, and they don’t carry guns, at least not officially. No, we wouldn’t trust any of these three clowns as far as we could throw them but at least this means that we’re a bit closer to eliminating the Coeymans police department and turning over Coeymans law enforcement to the Albany County Sheriff and the New York State Police, where it belongs, and for which we’re already paying handsomely. Now that we’re rid of Darlington, we’ve already saved more than $90,000 in the budget. Yes, people, that’s what he was getting paid, more than $90,000 a year plus benefits and pension. Now that we’re closer to getting rid of the Coeymans p.d. we can get rid of the dispatchers and save another $350,000 at least in the budget. So that leaves the hoodlums and incompetents in uniform, who can start filling out applications with the Albany County Sheriff or some other law enforcement entity, if they’ll have them (the New York State Police wouldn’t look twice at them before rejecting them). So, Coeymans, save yourself a cool $million$ by getting rid of the Coeymans p.d. and let the so-called “police commissioners” on the Coeymans board deal with the Albany County Sheriff’s department and the NYS police…if they can.

Dog Training Classes in the RCS High-school Cafeteria!?!
Here’s one for ya: Why is the RCS High School, RCS district offices, and the RCS board of education allowing dog training classes in the RCS CAFETERIA. Where the kids are eating. Why don’t they put the dog training in where the TEACHERS eat? Isn’t there any other place to hold dog training classes other than the student cafeteria? What are the health implications of such a stupid situation. Where’s the County Health Department on this? Where’s the Department of Education on this? Where’s Albany County Child Protective Services on this? Ask Tom DiAcetis or McCartney. Maybe that’s “policy” too? Where does it ever stop?
Where’s the RCS board of education on this one? And where do you think loud-mouth, double-dipper Matt Miller, NYSUT teachers union representative and “science” teacher is on this one? Do you think they have the best interests of the kids in mind?
Just another tidbit: Alice Whalen, you know the former RCS school teacher, fixture on the RCS CSD board of education, bitch-witch on wheels. She’s selling her house and moving out of the district. She’s moving to Guilderland, to an all-adult, children-free community. Now isn’t that special? Just like the rest of the rats, the vermin you elected to be on the board of education. They all sing “It’s For the Kids” and then … Well, we’ve said it all before. When will you start listening? She’s leaving the district, here beloved (Yeah, right!) RCS school district, moving out of the community, and taking her school tax money with her, to Guilderland!
