New York State Police: Joining Police-State Tactics, Eroding Public Trust; Biased Law-Enforcement!

What is the New York State Police in Greene/Columbia County Trying to Prove? That they’re as politically and socially biased as the worst of municipal law enforcement?

Well, if that’s what they’re out to prove, they’re well on their way to reaching their ill-conceived goals!

Think twice when you see these lights! They may not be there to "serve and to protect" but may be there simply to make a political statement!

Think twice when you see these lights! They may not be there to “serve and to protect” but may be there simply to make a political statement!

Supporting local business and economy, on the way to Rhinebeck, to participate in a Restaurant Week meal with 3 other couples at Terrapin, we curiously noted the unusual number of NYS police vehicles making stops of motorists. We casually remarked: “They must have a quota to fill.” And drove on confident that we, as law-abiding, good citizens would not have to go through such an ordeal. A reader writes to us on the evening of Friday, March 13, 2014, after returning from a harmless social event with professional co-workers:

“How  wrong we were! Returning to Albany county at about 10:45, approaching the Rip van Winkel bridge, we noticed a sandwich board displayed on the approach to the bridge: “Safety Restraint Check Ahead”, and figured it was just another seat-belt check. We remarked how stupid such a thing is to waste State Police personnel and resources checking seat belts at such a time. It soon became clear what was going on. It was a  total lie. But why do the State Police have to resort to such stupid, low, tactics against a majority of law-abiding, social citizens, when there’s so much obvious, conspicuous crime going on? Answer: Easy Pickin’s.
“Why go after criminal minorities in the wake of Fergusen and in the climate of Black history month when there are easy prey in the form of middle class white Americans out there who won’t riot and can’t claim “profiling” when they’re stopped and harassed. The U.S. Attorney General, a Black appointee under a Black president, issues a scathing critical report against the law enforcement officers of Fergusen after the shooting of an “unarmed black man” – and then two white cops are shot from ambush while monitoring [ongoing] protests in Ferugusen, and the U.S. Attorney General, Black hypocrite that he is, denounces the shootings. Eric Holder, U.S. Attorney General, the so-called chief law-enforcement officer in the USA, is a reverse racist! On the one hand he throws his own law-enforcement officers under the bus and then cries “Foul” when his own people engage in racist shootings of white police officers! How low have we become, America?!? How hypocritical have we become, America?!? It it had been a white person shooting, it would have been called “Racist!!!” If it had been an Arab, it would have been called, “Terrorist!!!” But it was a shooting of white police officers monitoring BLACK demonstrators…What do we call that? You tell us!!!
Stopped,asked whether the driver had had anything to drink that evening. Driver responds 1 beer. Pull over to the side there, I want to talk to you some more.
“Where are you coming from?  Where are you going?” Directing his attention to the passenger: “What have YOU had to drink?” Well the stupid, ignorant trooper had no idea what he was asking or whom he was asking and the  passenger simply responded: “Why are you asking me that? I’m not driving. Your question is totally irrelevant. What’s your problem? [Editor’s Note:  According to the personal communication because the situation was so bizarre, the passenger has started his voice recorder going on by this time!]”
As if to regain his composure and self-respect the trooper asks the driver to get out of the car and asks him to do all sorts of stupid things. Why stupid? Because the man was visibly 200% sober, no indication of impairment!!! This was clearly an instance of intimidation, harassment. Asked for the driver’s licence, which was produced and the trooper puts the licence in his back pocket! And then he continues to harass the driver. No radio check. No registration check. No insurance check! The trooper puts the licence in his back pocket! Is this harassment or real law enforcement? Passive intimidation? How many of our neighbors, fellow citizens have experienced this sort of police-state conduct?”

Shame on the NYS Police in Greene /Columbia County NY. Your're Disappointments!

Shame on the NYS Police
in Greene /Columbia County NY. You’re real Disappointments!<

Well, dear readers, there is no one out there who is more law-enforcement friendly, more supportive of our law-enforcement officers, and no one more supportive of law, liberty and justice than we are. But this is clearly an abuse of police authority. We fully support law enforcement in their efforts to serve and protect our communities by being present, observing, assisting, but NOT BY HARASSING and INTIMIDATING law-abiding, White citizens going about their routine social activities. And when law-enforcement does so under false pretenses and in obvious non-compliance with established protocols we have to speak out and demand an explanation.

We condemn such arbitrary, indifferent, discriminatory conduct on the part of our publicly funded law enforcement personnel. It’s the socially and politically responsible, hard-working, responsible and ethical minority who pays for law enforcement and who supports local businesses and institutions. It seems it’s exactly these very same individuals who are targeted by the very law enforcement and government they support!

Dishonored, DisappointmentsUntil Further Notice

Dishonored, Disappointments
Until Further Notice

The check-point at the Rip van Winkel bridge on March 13, 2015, at about 10:45 was a travesty of police power. It was totally inappropriate and abusive. It undermined our faith and trust, our confidence in our law enforcement personnel. It defeated any claimed law enforcement positive effects.

We made inquiries and it seems the New York State Police were out in force and stopping people even during the afternoon. The pretense: St Pat’s day! So the New York State Police are out stopping people on March 13th in preparation for March 17th. If only they were that well-prepared to enforce day-to-day laws on our road we’d all feel a lot safer. Now doesn’t that get your Irish up? Happy St Pat’s day…and watch out for the party-poopers!

shamrockShame on you! New York State Police! Your personnel on the Rip Van Winkel bridge tonite eroded any support and confidence we may have had in you! May be this country is moving in the direction of the totalitarian police state we’ve been warning against over the past couple of years. Beware, sheeple, your silence will be your undoing!

We, the People, are guaranteed control under the Constitution. It’s time we took responsibility for what’s going on in this community, this country and it’s time we take control. We’re not the criminals and we should not be made to feel we are. We know who the criminals are and when our law enforcement and government start to go astray, it’s time to start doing what the Blacks have been and still are doing: taking control! Get with the Constitution, people. Stop this downward spiral of depravity NOW!

Have you had any experience with local or state police recently? Tell us about it.

Congressman Chris Gibson Here on October 2, 2014! Be there!

Your United States Congressman Chris Gibson will be in our area on October 2, 2014, we are advised by New Baltimore Republican Club president, Jeff Ruso.

american spirit
Congressman Chris Gibson Here on October 2nd!

“I received confirmation that Chris Gibson will be at the New Baltimore Republican Club meeting of Oct. 2nd.  This will be at Pegasus’ Restaurant. We start at 7:00, but the Congressman is not expected until about 7:45.  George Amedore, Peter Lopez and others also are confirmed.” *
 * Editor’s note: There may be a donation at the door but there is usually food, door prizes,
and a 50-50, which make it a bit more fun.

 This might be a great time to take an evening, have a little bite to eat at one of our area’s leading eateries, the famous Pegasus Restaurant, to meet your neighbors, and to grill your legislators.
Colonel Chris Gibson United States Congressman

United States Congressman

The New Baltimore Republican Club is a very welcoming, friendly group of neighbors, and we’re sure they’d be more than delighted to welcome anyone of any party affiliation from the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk communities, as well as neighbors in Greene County.

It may be a good time to also address the local problem of anti-military bias in our schools, and hear what the national legislators think of the RCS scandal raised by Mr Tom DiAcetis, principal of the RCS high-school, and Mr Alan McCartney, RCS central school district interim supervisor. That scandal united 19 local students to challenge DiAcetis and McCartney, who were shredded on national media, and mobilized parents to hand out National Guard t-shirts at the recent RCS homecoming game. (See the front-page report in the Ravena News Herald, October 2, 2014). DiAcetis and McCartney are desperately backpedaling but it’s doing them no good, except to further mark them as liars and incompetent as leaders. The Ravena News Herald appears to be providing DiAcetis and McCartney with excuses but when Bryan Rowzee of the Ravena News Herald quotes Alan McCartney as saying, “McCartney went on to explain that the recruiter personally ‘apologized for his actions…”! Well, Mr McCartney, the recruiter is not the one who should be offering apologies, you ASS! You should be apologizing all the way to the door, together with Tom DiAcetis, and your special-interest biased RCS board of education! You should be apologizing for your anti-military bias, your double-talk to the taxpayers and parents of this district, and your lax attitude with renegade and maverick school administrators and crooked teachers! No, Mr McCartney, the unnamed recruiter doesn’t have to apologize.

outrageAnd Thank you! James Staats of South Bethlehem for your short but very to-the-point letter-to-the-editor of the News Herald in which you give DiAcetis and McCartney the lashing they deserve! Mr Staats writes: “McCartney went on to explain that the recruiter personally ‘apologized for his actions and agreed to meet with students concerning the shirts.” We’d like to note that the News Herald’s and Rowzee’s attempts in the extensive positive coverage of the RCS school district in the October 2, 2014, issue is an obvious attempt to distract readers from the seriousness of the DiAcetis-McCartney scandal. In fact, it’s insulting to read that McCartney says that the recruiter “personally apologized”! For what? Mr McCartney. It’s not the recruiter who owes us an apology, you ASS! It’s YOU and Tom DiAcetis! Our legislators, Mr Gibson, Mr Lopez and others (Amedore) need to weigh in on this scandal; after all, they can lean heavily on education officials in the state and federal departments of education to discipline such violations of civics and civil rights.

Open Letter to all RCS board members:

While I know many of you, I want to address the full board on a matter of extreme importance.

As a graduate of RCS and an Army veteran, I am outraged by the decision of  Interim Superintendent AlanMcCartney to ban the wearing of tee-shirts handed out by the National Guard to students. This is a graphic of a soldier standing sentinel in defense of our freedoms. This should not be offensive to anybody but should invoke pride that we have courageous men and women to serve our country.

I would like an answer from each one of you; not in political gobbeldygook, whether you agree or disagree with his decision. I would like to remind you that this is not just about budgets but our basic freedoms that our soldiers have fought and died for.

I am calling for an immediate firing of Dr Alan McCartney. We don’t need to pay $600 a day to disrespect our military and further erode our hard fought freedoms.

James S. Staats
South Bethlehem

We’re publishing Mr Staats’ letter in its entirety because we believe he’s right. But the Ravena News Herald reaches less than 3,000 readers each week; we get that many in a day! Published here, it reaches thousands of readers locally, nationally, internationally. It expresses many residents’, voters’ sentiments and sentiments that our legislators like Mr Gibson, Mr Lopez and potentially Mr Amadore are well-advised to keep clearly in mind.

Question: Where is George McHugh, an Army JAG officer, and Terry Kindlon, a marine, on all of this. You’d think they’d be out prosecuting DiAcetis and McCartney as well and the members of the RCS CSD board of education pro bono for their un-American activity! Hello! Guys, where are you?!?

Not only should local veterans and others mobilize and make the October 2 NBRC meeting to meet our legislators, you should appear in support of the United States Armed Forces. Yeah! Ask Mr Gibson, Mr Lopez and Mr Amadore where they stand on these issues.

What does former Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington do while all of this is going on? He throws a sissy-fit and resigns. We think that ex-military law enforcement like former NB constable, the late Don “Squeaky” Tanner and former police chief Frank “Babe” McCabe, two proud veterans, would have gone down there and taken the cowards by the scruff of the neck and kicked some anti-military ass. They were law enforcement who had family values, morality, had the community spirit, watched everyone’s back, and cared for every kid as one of their own! Not like the beasts we have in local law enforcement now who make our young people Public Enemy No. 1 and their ticket to an undeserved pension.

Remember: Candidates need the support of major political parties to get on a ballot and run. That’s the way it is. But once they’re in office, no matter who elected them, they have an obligation to represent the best interests of EVERYONE, not just the ones who supported them, in their district. It’s our responsibility to remind them of that fact.

We hope to see many of our loyal readers at the Pegasus Restaurant (10885 State Route 9W, Coxsackie, NY 12051 Tel. (518) 731-9200),  on October 2, 2014, to meet Mr Gibson, who is running against pretty rich-boy liberal Sean Eldridge (the ‘White Obama’).

October 2nd, at Pegasus Restaurant, promises to be a blockbuster! You may want to phone ahead to make your reservation: (518) 731-9200.

Bring your questions and pet peeves with you for the legislators.

Editor’s Note: As stupid as it may seem, the town of Coeymans is holding its town board meeting on the same evening, October 14, 2014, as the RCS-CSD board of education is holding their meeting. Both the Coeymans town board meeting and the RCS-CSD BoE meeting need your attendance because both have especially important issues on the agenda. Local residents and taxpayers should not have to make a choice which of these meetings to attend. We urge the RCS-CSD BoE and the town of Coeymans to get their empty heads together and stagger their meetings to allow citizens to be involved and to participate in the democratic process.

We also urge all military, ex-military, veterans to make it a special point to attend the RCS-CSD BoE meeting on October 14, 2014, to show support for our military men and women and our veterans, and to tell Mr DiAcetis and Mr McCartney and the nazis on the RCS BoE exactly what you think of their un-American policies and their disrespect for the loyalty and patriotism of their students and the National Guard! Be there!

Be There on October 2nd! And don't forget the BoE meeting on October 14. We won't forget! The Editor

Be There on October 2nd!
And don’t forget the BoE meeting on October 14. We won’t forget!

McCartney, DiAcetis, RCS Fail at Education

When so – called educators don’t educate and indiscriminately create and enforce knee – jerk policies, and superintendents stupidly announce “Rules are Rules”, that’s not education people, that’s fascism, totalitarianism, extremism. It’s not education it’s automation, creating sheeple out of sensitive and responsive minds. Is that the plan underlying today’s “education”? Is the plan to create either sheeple or criminals? Black or white: “Rules are Rules,” OBEY!

RCS high-school principal Tom DiAcetis, Superintendant Alan McCartney's Education

RCS high-school principal Tom DiAcetis, Superintendant Alan McCartney’s Education

McCartney’s “Rules are rules” mantra simply doesn’t work. Where’s the education in all of this? This sort of model is used to train dogs and monkeys, not adolescent human beings. The overriding policy is: Ban it, Don’t explain it.

failed

With the deterioration of American family systems, the marginalization of religion and churches, the national and local lies and propaganda, the criminal corruption and hypocrisy we have not only in our courts, legislatures and town halls but in many of the homes where many of these young adults live is bad enough. But when we put cowards and fools in executive and administrative positions in our schools, OUR SCHOOLS, and they are contradicting everything of value, ethical, moral and civil, that’s where we have to shout very loudly: WE’VE HAD ENOUGH! GET OUT!

BAN THIS BITCH!!!

BAN THIS BITCH!!!

This is one of those times where we have to say: The students are right!

Isn’t it the job of the teachers we pay outrageously high salaries to teach our young people not ways of watching but ways of seeing; not ways of hearing but ways of listening; not ways of simply being but ways of be – ing, experiencing. Using this most recent example of the failure of our teachers, principals, administrators, isn’t this yet another example of the failure of education in our RCS schools? This is exactly what we saw during the Bruno – Warner dictatorship in Ravena when they were openly violating rights protected by the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights. It’s the very thing we’ve been writing about in our essays about the corruption and obstruction of justice in the Coeymans police department. That same corruption and obstruction of justice, the violation of protected rights has found its way into our schools, people, because we have allowed it to happen by loading our board of education, our district offices, and our school administrative offices and classrooms with individuals who are self – serving and members of an exclusive club –  – exclusive because although they want our tax dollars to pad their pockets, they don’t want anything to do with us or hear from us.

We are a nation of laws. We are NOT a nation of justice.
As RCS Superintendent Alan McCartney says: Rules are Rules.

In our opinion, the RCS school system and its district offices are the homeland enemies, not a bunch of camel – jockeys six thousand or eight thousand miles away! It’s actually principals like Tom DiAcetis, union-lackeys, crook teachers like Matt Miller, superintendents like Allan McCartney who are confusing the hell out of the kids and making them schizoid. Is that the plan? On thtake back americae one hand, we have a president and a congress who just last week were handing out high military honors, the Medal of Honor, to men already dead or nearly so on national television. Then we have the president of the United States announcing (finally) his “strategy” (Strategy? Well, he seems to think it’s a strategy. Sounds more like a smoke screen.)  to weaken alleged terrorists in Syria and in God knows how many other areas. What’s Obama going to use in this battle against terrorism? Chitlins? The ideology taught by our RCS teachers and represented by the RCS board of education and their parasite superintendent, Alan McCartney? We have advertisements for military organizations and military recruitment and careers everywhere you look. We have the National Rifle Association organizing huge rallies. We have “Repeal the Safe Act” everywhere you look. We have a tradition of Rod and Gun Clubs, Sportsmen’s Clubs. One of our traditional activities is hunting. We have a Second Amendment, too. Then we have our educators—and I’m using that term very loosely, indeed—banning T – shirts because they might have a depiction of a firearm on them! WTF! These people in our schools call themselves “educators”?  They’re imbeciles receiving outrageous salaries and benefits. Worse still, most of them are cowards living off the sweat, blood and sacrifices of others!

In fact, aren’t most public meetings opened with a sort of prayer called the Pledge of Allegiance? Don’t we erect monuments at public expense commemorating veterans and past wars? Don’t we have a federal holiday called Veteran’s Day? Aren’t all of these somehow connected with the Armed Forces, or something like that? Where have our so-called “educators” been through all this (probably dodging the draft or living the good life while others are dying the patriotic death). We don’t need or want cowards teaching our kids or running our schools and towns!

They still are required to teach the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights in our public schools, aren’t they?

The feminist pastor of the New Baltimore Reformed Church decided a couple of years ago that the American flag did not have a place in front of the congregation, near the lecterns, and moved the flag to the back of the sanctuary. Some in the congregation raised hell; some even left that congregation because of that action. Several years ago, the pastor of the Roman Catholic Church of St Patrick in Ravena, offended parishioners when he refused to have the coffin of dead veterans draped with the American flag in the church (he was complying with ritual instructions, actually). Again, parishioners raised hell and many went elsewhere. And, dear readers, those are churches; remember separation of church and state. What those so – called pastors failed to recognize is that their congregation members and parishioners are Americans 6 days out of the week and Christians only one day, if that. They live the American way 6 days a week; they worship only one, and many not even that.

It used to be that our schools taught us how to be good citizens while exercising our rights. Our schools and teachers taught us values and morality. Some of those values was loyalty, respect, honesty, integrity, fairness, gratitude and—surprisingly—the notion of patriotism, a form of loyalty and respect, very close to family values, actually.

Our schools and educators are sending mixed messages, the wrong messages. Parents are not carrying their fair share of the load; our local, state and national governments have become so corrupt and dishonest that the only way to cover their tracks is with propaganda, misinformation and control. Our schools, obviously, are following that same evil example.


take it back

DiAcetis’s and McCarney’s Warrior Option: Pee on’em!

Editor’s Comment. It’s obvious to us that there’s a great deal of dishonesty and hypocrisy involved here on both sides: the Ravena – Coeymans – Selkirk Central School District (RCS CSD) and the National Guard. There’s also a very deep and dangerous gap in the RCS CSD’s understanding of proper notice, due process, protected rights, and a large number of other issues of neglect or indifference. On that latter note we really have to ask why we are paying DiAcetis and McCartney salaries of more than $100,000 plus benefits to run such a shoddy show.

helmet pee

DiAcetis: I pee on you! I win!

O-14-00369​1

We also have to ask whether the RCS CSD gives any consideration to the trauma and damage that they cause to adolescents by the principal’s, the school employees’ and the superintendent’s arbitrary and overly discretionary so – called discipline. What if the kid’s wearing the shirt to honor a fallen friend or relative? What if the student is wearing the shirt as an expression of solidarity with the armed forces? What if….? Aren’t these school officials supposed to be trained in some level of psychology? Or are they indifferent to the effects their own conduct is having on these young people?

We’d like to know where the RCS CSD dress code is published. We can’t find it anywhere. And was it at some point subject to public comment at, say, a RCS board of education public meeting? If the RCS CSD dress code is intended to control behavior, to limit free expression, to do anything that might even remotely affect a person’s rights, it should be subject to public comment and should be published. Does anyone know where it is, apart from in DiAcetis’ desk drawer?

What is the RCS CSD position and policy regarding the United States Armed Forces, exactly? We have to assume that the recruiter just didn’t stroll in and hand out shirts…or can we? The RCS CSD is aware that the National Guard and other branches of the US armed forces used weapons from time to time, even deadly force. Aren’t they? What’s the big surprise that a shirt should show a military personnel with a rifle? Does Mr Diacetis or Mr McCartney think that wars and battles are won, that terrorists are subdued by the US military by our men in uniform meandering up to the enemy and threatening to pee on him if he doesn’t give up? Interesting notion but we don’t think that tactic would work on the battlefield. Weapons carried by trained warriors have proved to be effective.

Actually, in these times of US military action in so many places all over the globe, we think it’s disgraceful, scandalous bordering on the treasonous, to show such disrespect for young people’s patriotism not to mention for the efforts of our men and women in uniform. Shame on you you pitiful examples of RCS CSD cowardice!

McCartney's Secret Weapon: Pee on'em!

McCartney’s Secret Weapon: Pee on’em!

We also find it disturbing that the National Guard would even consider pandering to these cowards’ by “sanitizing” their promotional shirts. Does the National Guard really think that if their shirts don’t feature a weapon that anyone is going to think that they are going to use the “pee threat” on terrorists, looters, etc.? It’s shameful that the National Guard is acquiescing to the scandal by superficially denying the use of deadly weapons in their activities. Does the National Guard believe that by caving to the cowards that the kids are so stupid to think that guns are not used in defense activities?

Isn’t denial and hypocrisy already out of all control in our community and in this country? Can’t we just be honest for a change and call a spade a spade?

What will the cowards want next? Do we have to remove all weapons from our military displays, monuments, recruitment advertising. Perhaps a big peeing penis would be more their taste in support of the “pee threat.”

Is it too much to ask parents to know who their children are? To know where they are? To know what they’re doing? Is it too much to ask parents to tear themselves away from their smart phones, their computers, the TV and give some attention to their kids so that they don’t resort to mass murder to be heard? Go figure!


We cannot treat an entire sector of our population, a well – informed, inquisitive, powerful, and activist group like our high – school students, like a bunch of budding criminals, a bunch of retards who as soon as they see a weapon on a T – shirt they become serial killers or mass murders. We have to give them the credit they deserve for having brains and a reasoning process going on in there. We have to stop sending the mixed messages because they will call us on that and we, as adults, lose credibility with them. That’s not a good thing.

Taxpayers, residents, parents of RCS students: You have to take some responsibility for this injustice being done to our young people! We have to get the cowards, the harlots, the adult bullies, the egoists, the crooks and the scoundrels out of our schools. We have to allow our young people to develop good values, ethics, morals and character; when they express good values, ethics, morals and character we must not demoralize, criminalize them. Stop allowing your schools to create sheeple out of thinking human beings or pay the price of Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s Russia, Mao’s China, and Obama’s United States: Propaganda, Fascism, Totalitarianism, Rule by the Elite. It’s the another step in poisoning America.

DiAcetis, McCartney. Do it NOW!

DiAcetis, McCartney. Do it NOW!

DiAcetis and McCartney must apologize to the students, to the community, to the Armed Forces of the United States.

DiAcetis and McCartney must then RESIGN.

We believe in Choices. Given DiAcetis and McCartney a choice: RESIGN OR GET FIRED!!!

We believe in Choices.
Give DiAcetis and
McCartney a choice:

RESIGN OR GET FIRED!!!

A Weasel on the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Board of Education: William McFerran?!?!

 As if there weren’t already too many weasels in the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District administrative offices, employed by the RCS schools as teachers and non-instruction staff; as if the RCS board of education were not already overrun by ratlike weasels, now one of the arch-weasels, William “Bill” McFerran has his eye on a seat on the RCS board of education. Does it get any sleazier? Well, the answer to that question, dear readers is: Yes! It does get sleazier because the RCS school central district and its board of education are the sleaze champs of central New York State.

RCS: Home of the Weasel Board of Education!

Owned and Operated by the New York State United Teachers — A special-interest union!

McFerret a.k.a. McWeasel Bill McFerran Running for RCS BoE? No way, José!

McFerret a.k.a. McWeasel: Bill McFerran Running for RCS BoE? No way, José!

Not only did the Fiends of RCS wait until the 11th hour to announce the names of the sleaze candidates they are attempting to push on the public,  The fact that the three candidates supported by the teachers union, New York State United Teachers, Tina Furst-Hotaling, Michael Jones, and William “Bill” McFerret. Once again the Fiends of RCS, a loud-mouthed group of insiders, has put their candidates—Correction: the teachers union’s candidates—all on one ticket and plastering the entire district with the arrogant three stooges:Tina Furst-Hotaling, Michael Jones, and McFerret himself!


The ferret (Mustela putorius furo) is the domesticated form of the European Polecat, a mammal belonging to the weasel genus of the family Mustelidae.Ferrets are sexually dimorphic predators…[B]eing so closely related to polecats, ferrets are quite easily able to hybridize with them, and this has occasionally resulted in feral colonies of polecat-ferret hybrids that have caused damage to native fauna. (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferret)


It’s a scandal that the candidates were publically announced not even a week before the scheduled school board and school budget elections. Meet the candidates was published only on May 25, 2014, in the Ravena News Herald for the elections to take place on May 20th!!!! Is that a joke or what?

Ms...Furst-Hotaling

Ms…Furst-Hotaling

We reported on McFerret’s shady and sleazy operations while he was associated with the RCS Sports Association. You remember, the sports association with the phony registrations and non-profit status? The same RCS Sports Association that when the water was getting a little too hot to handle, all of a sudden disappeared in a puff of ‘we’re outa here’ and then miraculously reappeared as the “new” RCS Sports Association will real status and a whole new board of crooks. Well, if you remember all that you’ll also remember that McFerran, yes, the very William McFerran who’s running for the board of education was behind all that and mixed up in the skullduggery, right up to his furry neck! And now he’s asking RCS voters to put him on the board that is already lousy with insiders.

Well, if you think the RCS board of education has been lousy with teachers and teachers’ spouses, and if you feel you’ve been left out in the cold by the Latter-Hyslop-Brown mob (all of their discussions take place behind closed doors, the BoE meetings are so insubstantial most people don’t even attend any more (except for those who have something to gain), and the public has been all but shut out of any serious decision-making process).

What’s even worse is that once the Latter-Hyslop-Brown gang got on the board, no one had a chance. But let’s face the truth, people. You made your beds and now you have to sleep in them. Good for you, RCS school district voters, you now have failing schools and are spending another $42 million to keep those responsible for the failure in the decision-making positions. Congratulate yourselves, RCS voters! You’re filling the pockets of RCS employees and their unions to the tune of 75% of the $42+ million they want you to approve on May 20th! Go ahead! Add McFerret, Jones and Furst-Hotaling to the BoE and shoot yourselves in the other foot.

Just do a search of this blog to learn about the ape that your BoE almost immediately put in the president’s chair: James Latter! He works for the Saudi-Arabian plastics manufacturer Sabic. Yeah, the same Sabic (formerly G.E. Plastics) who has so poisoned the environment in and around Feura Bush/Selkirk that the land is dead! And Latter’s the president of your board of education. Thanks, RCS voters! While you’re at it, search for McFerran and read about that scoundrel!

Mr Fozzie Jones

Mr Fozzie Jones

But the worst was still to come. Your very Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Teachers Association, led by your very own crook and double-dipper teacher, Matthew Miller a.k.a. Matt the Mutt Miller, who just about a year ago was told he was no longer going to get the $18,000 he was being paid on top of his full teacher’s salary and for what? For being “energy manager.” But Miller’s crimes against the school district didn’t stop there and still don’t. He’s the teacher’s union rep at RCS. Yes, he’s the union rep for New York State United Teachers, NYSUT, at RCS, and works a reduced teaching load so he can dedicate time to union work….And yes, he does get his full teacher’s salary, too.

predatorsBut as a teacher and as a union rep, representing the special interests of the teacher, he crosses many, too many boundaries. Not even considering his double- even triple dipping into your tax dollars, he uses his positions as teacher and union rep to unfairly influence the voting when it comes to the BoE and the school budget. His boss, Alan McCartney, has turned wimp when it comes to keeping Miller under control, and so Miller and his associates Elyse Loughlin, are improperly attempting to influence the elections.

We have acquired a letter dated April 25, 2014, signed by both Matthew J. Miller as Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Teachers Association “president”, and Elyse Loughlin, PAC (Political Action Committee) chairperson, in which Miller and Loughlin announce the union’s support of the budget passed by the teacher-loaded RCS board of education. But Miller and Loughlin mention cuts in that letter, cuts that never were made! Lie Number One!

Matt-the-Mutt Miller as NYSUT Rep

Matt-the-Mutt Miller as NYSUT Rep

In that same letter, Miller and Loughlin announce their support of Bill McFerran (the RCS Sports Association goon), Furst-Hotaling, another insider and former member of the notorious private club known as the Pieter B. Coeymans PTO, and Michael Jones, whose wife is a teacher. Need we say more? But there is more.

Miller and Loughlin AGAIN start a smear campaign against the only candidate who is not closely associated with the teachers or the teachers union, NYSUT, Rodney Krzykowski. Matt Miller and Elyse Loughlin continue their failed attempts to discredit Mr Krzykowski based on their misinformed and ignorant propaganda that Mr Krzykowski is somehow unfit to be on the board of education! Would that be because he’s the only one not a card-carrying member of the teachers clique and the only one who truly represents the working class of this district? It gets even worse when Miller and Loughlin accuse the State Education Department  and the Commissioner of Education as being “weak kneed” for not removing Mr Krzykowski from office. Miller and Loughlin seem to think they know better than the entire New York State Education Department!!!

Mr Beaker "Weasel" McFerran

Mr Beaker “Weasel” McFerran

Dear readers, that letter says it all. Here we have individuals receiving outlandish salaries and benefits, the very ones to whom you entrust your children’s’ education, defying an individual’s rights to political freedom and to challenge an unjust system. These people, Miller and Laughlin, represent the teachers union, NYSUT, not YOU! Yet they are asking you to deprive a fellow citizen, sovereign or not, of his rights to represent you. Miller, Laughlin and their friends Latter, Engel, Hyslop, Brown all attempted to VOID YOUR VOTES by using their trickery to remove a man elected by YOU from his seat on the BoE.

It’s really disgusting that Miller, Laughlin and their cronies not only wanted to VOID YOUR VOTES but they want also to deprive a citizen of his protected rights of free political speech and association. Now that’s a message you really want your kids getting in the schools you are paying for. That’s the equivalent of intellectual sabotage and abuse of trust!

What’s really disgusting is that Miller, Laughlin and the people they want on the RCS CSD school board like James Latter (accused several times of ethical violations and violation of student and family confidentiality, a violation of the FERPA law), Engel, Hyslop, Brown (husband of Mary Partridge-Brown, the woman who almost gives Matt Miller a lap dance at school board meetings, she’s so close), now want to foist more insiders to do their union’s bidding, like Tina Furst-Hotaling and Michael Jones and worse still, Bill McFerran.

At the very least in the last elections the Fiends of RCS supported Patrick Brown and Jason Hyslop on the same board as the unethical James Latter; now they’re putting Furst-Hotaling and Jones on the same board as the tax-avoider Bill McFerran of the “old” RCS Sports Association, while crying Wolf! and pointing the finger at Mr Krzkowski. Will the hypocrisy never end in this RCS school district?

Matt Miller and Elyse Laughlin and their kind are not only traitors to their community and to their students, they advocate different constitutional rights for different groups! That in itself is a violation of the United States Constitution! They are attacking the system of laws as well, saying that the laws do not work (after all, if Mr Krzkowski were guilty of any crime other than exercising his constitutional rights, would he still be free?). Hell Miller and Laughlin even attack their own New York State Department of Education and its Commissioner when they don’t get their way and the Department of Education and its Commissioner don’t break the law for them.

Those are the types of teachers you have in the RCS Central School District. Those are the types of teachers that you have teaching your kids. Those are the types of people your are throwing $42 million at and letting them have their way with it. YOUR SCHOOLS ARE STILL FAILING RCS AND YOUR TEACHERS UNION IS STILL RUNNING YOUR BOARD OF EDUCATION. WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO SMARTEN UP? WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO WAKE UP! (Did you know that in a recent official appraisal done in the town of Bethlehem couldn’t find any comparables in the RCS school district and wrote “the RCS schools are failing” and cannot be compared with the Bethlehem properties!)

Everybody Pays Failing SchoolsOne final word: Remember the RCS Sports Association’s big plan to “donate” a refreshment stand to the RCS school district? Well, that’s stagnated for some time now. Just watch the thermometer on the RCS high-school grounds: It’s not moving! The fundraising is all but dead! But here’s the plan you don’t know about: McFerret is running for a seat on the RCS board of education along with two other supporters. What would you think if once they’re on the board they don’t get together with the other insiders and divert budget funds to the refreshment stand fund? Another bit of trickery you can bitch about. Right?

Rodney Krzykowsky is the only person left on that RCS central school district board of education who is not infected. Rodney Krzykowski is one of the only ones in this entire RCS district who has the balls to say out loud what the rest of you only say under your breath. Rodney Krzykowski is the only one on the RCS BoE who has the guts to represent the blue collars in this community. Rodney Krzykowski stands alone but has the guts to do so; the rest of your lousy RCS BoE are hypocrites and cowards. It’s about time someone said that, and it’s about time you readers start doing something about it.

They're doing it down your leg and telling you it's ice-water! The Editor

New Baltimore Needs to Opt OUT of the Failing RCS CSD and Join the Thriving Coxsackie Team in Our Own Greene County Schools! New Baltimore has to wake up and realize that it has no representation in the RCS CSD; furthermore, the RCS CSD and the RCS board of education are so far gone, so corrupt, there’s no saving it! So save yourselves, New Baltimore!

 So Why is the Coeymans Town Board Still Sinking Taxpayer Dollars in the Coeymans P.D.?
Why is the Coeymans Town Board Still Approving Hiring New Employees for the Coeymans P.D.?


As we quickly approach the historic quarter-of-a-million readers mark — YES! We’ve almost reached 250,000 readers! — We can look back with pride on the many accomplishments and community improvements that this blog has instigated by providing the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk community with factual information on what’s going on in their communities. And Yes! while we have contributed to many improvements in local life, we are still flabbergasted by the ignorance and insensitivity of local elected officials to the dire straits in local government and their total lack of vision and competency.

Coeymans Today

Coeymans Today

 In the past we made the excuses for them saying that the Coeymanazis had the majority on the board, or that a senile and corrupt mayor was bullying his programs through, and putting his friends and supporters into power and cushy local jobs. But that excuse seems to have gone the way of the dinosaur since the recent elections when local Republicans won the majority over local democraps in the Town of Coeymans, the Town of New Baltimore and the Village of Ravena. We also recently examined the first six months of the new Coeymans town board in our article: New Coeymans Town Board: First six months…Same old same old. The picture is not a pretty one.

Coeymans Town Board Visions of Dumps

Coeymans Town Board
Visions of Dumps

 The Town of New Baltimore has already made considerable headway to replacing corrupt and incompetent local government with accountability and transparency. Only time will tell whether the new elected officials will allow their authority to go to their heads and become one of the villains they replaced.

But Coeymans is Still Disgusting!

The Town of Coeymans, however, doesn’t seem to have caught on. The Town of Coeymans, it appears, has replaced one set of dolts with another set of widgets. The Town of Coeymans, it seems, hasn’t learned a damned thing in the past 4-8 years about good local government. The elections last November that brought so much hope to the residents and citizens of Coeymans was apparently a sham. The new majority on  the Town of Coeymans town council is not only continuing the pitiful stupidity of the past administrations but is showing even less courage, less vision, and is following the backward track of business-as-usual. Here’s what we have observed in the past six months:

 Two years ago, when we started this blog, we published one of our first articles, the third one, actually, on March 3, 2012, with the title: “Coeymans, New York: A Nest of Hypocrisy” (click on that link to read the article). Since then we’ve published a total of 336 articles that report on local life and politics, informing local residents, citizens and taxpayers about everything they won’t get to read in the Albany Times Union a.k.a. the Albany Times Useless, or any of the Johnson Newspaper Group’s rags, especially the local love-fest rag, the Ravena News Herald a.k.a. the Ravena Nosey Hick. The Ravena-Coeymans community has been the epicenter of ridicule and scandalous reporting by the Times Union, another liberal-democrap rag that has perpetuated the downward spiral of the Albany area.

same old

Looking back on our 336 articles, we published facts on everything from the misconduct of RCS Central School District teachers, bullying in our schools, the inability of the RCS Central School District administration to achieve even a mediocre standard of education while paying ineffectual teachers outrageous salaries, and getting abysmal test scores and graduation rates. Our schools, ladies and gentlemen, are failing and so are our students. Our costs, however, are skyrocketing. The salaries make up more than 75% of the school budget, Coeymans police are harassing our students on school grounds, sports coaches are making six-figure salaries while a large proportion of residents are working two or more jobs just to make ends meet and pay their property taxes. Go figure!

Local Coeymanazi police and Village of Ravena elected officials harass and persecute local teens and youth, while doing everything they possibly could to kill the local Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activities Center. Ex-mayor John Bruno, “trustee” Nancy Warner, and Cathy Deluca, after having paid a local insider more than $40,000 for used fitness equipment, and Josephine “Josie” Biscone-Bruno got a local man to sign a lease for premises, owned by Bob Fisk, a local insider, for the property finally killed the Teen Center. The Teen Center sold its furnishing to the Athens teen center, which has the support of the village of Athens. After all was said and done, the kids were back on the street and Ravena had another empty building, another distressed property on Main Street. Ex-mayor John T. Bruno was ousted with two of his lackeys, Martin Case, an RCS social studies teacher on reduced teaching load (but receiving a full teacher salary), and Rocco Persico, a RCS CSD school psychologist, in the March 2014 elections. Tell you a lot about RCS schools, doesn’t it?

The RCS CSD board of education has been a hot topic since day one. The spending is outrageous as are the salaries. The board of education is controlled by the teachers who are controlled by the New York State United Teachers, a division of the AFL, both unions. We have reported on incredible misconduct and conflicts of interest in the schools by the teachers and on the board of education. We’ve reported on election and poll misconduct and a number of citizens have complained directly to the New York State Department of Education and have demanded investigations. Too little too late. We’re stuck with special interests running both the schools and the board of education.
same old story

Unfortunately, most local residents get their local information and news only from the Ravena News Herald, which is a rag that reports only what’s approved and positive to the local powers to be. Almost always a week late and always saying ‘just the right thing the right way’ to paint a rosy, but false picture of what’s going on in Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk, always 3/4 packed with news from everywhere else, and complete with at least 8 full pages of legal notices. The Ravena News Herald, yours for a mere $1, and not fit to wipe your butt with.
In the meantime, the propaganda and misinformation fills the pages of local media. The lies abound and the frame-ups continue. Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk continues to earn its reputation as a “Nest of Hypocrisy.”

The Coeymans police department has been a subject of particular interest. Of all the local nests of corruption and misconduct, the Coeymans police department takes the first prize. When the Coeymans town board was dominated by the likes of Tom Boehm, Tom Dolan and Dawn Rogers, all recipients of special favors by the Coeymans police department and the local town justices (see our article, “From the Judge Himself: Coeymans Judge Resigns, Insider Exposes Corruption” of March 24, 2014), we demanded that Boehm, Rogers and Dolan get the boot. Boehm and Rogers were ousted last November. Dolan’s life expectancy on the Coeymans town board is very likely to end in the next elections. But the Coeymans town board is still as ineffectual as the last one! Why is that, we have to ask.

Despite public outcry to eliminate the Coeymans police department (see our article and poll at “Eliminate the Coeymans Police Department: Your Vote“, where 85% of participants demand that the Coeymans p.d. be eliminated!). Despite Coeymans town supervisor’s previous efforts to replace the Coeymans p.d. with services provided by the Albany County Sheriff’s Department that would save Coeymans more than $500,000 a year over the first four years and a projected $700,000 a year in the fifth year for law enforcement with no reduction in services! and maintaining a local presence, with local officers, and local equipment the Coeymans town board, still under the now disputed leadership of Stephen Flach, is still pouring money out of town coffers to placate the always hungry and always needy Coeymans police department. Far from eliminating it, the current Coeymans town board is approving more spending and approving more new hires to the already bloated and mismanaged Coeymans police department. All dodo-cop Darlington has to do is ask and the Coeymans town board rubber stamps the expenditure. Why is that, Coeymans?

Coeymans Town Board Congregation

Coeymans Town Board Congregation

With four alleged “Christians” on the Coeymans town board: Town supervisor Stephen Flach is allegedly a pastor to a local congregation of a Christian sect. Town councilman Peter Masti is an outspoken “Christian,” and the other two members of the majority, Burns and Langdon, also have some distinct “Christian” leanings, you’d expect them to be at least a little more ethical, less hypocritical, more responsible given the unmistakable condemnation of Pharisees and hypocrites in the New Testament, the guiding sacred text for most “Christians.” But somehow all that New Testament stuff has been swept under the carpet by the “Christians” on the Town of Coeymans board. We find it very interesting that four elected officials can forget their Christian ethics once they enter town hall. Be not mistaken, dear readers, we support the non-establishment clause of the US Constitution — properly interpreted and properly understood — but ethics is ethics and hypocrisy is hypocrisy, and hypocrisy is universally despised. So why is it so popular in Coeymans town hall?

Why is it that the four “Christians” entrusted with governing this town are blind to the corruption of the Coeymans police department. One of the worst villains was the adulterer (Yes! Readers! Adultery is a capital sin in the Old Testament and the New Testament; it is also a crime under New York State law!) Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca, who recently “retired” or “resigned” from the Coeymans police department to become the CEO of the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs. Deluca has been a favorite subject together with his bimbo-bandit wife, Cathy Deluca, who was installed by the former Ravena village mob to be “director” of the illegal Ravena Health and Fitness Center (Search this blog for the poop on that one!). Supervisor Flach calls Deluca a “faithful and loyal employee” and town councilman Kevin Langdon calls Deluca a “father figure.”  Deluca, in fact, not even considering his wife’s corruption, was one of the most despicable scoundrels and liars in recent Coeymans history!!! A lousy cop, a nasty piece of work, and a virtual pig in a suit, Deluca made wild claims of working for a number of special interest organizations while at the same time working for the Coeymans police department. It seems his “Christian” friends on the Coeymans town board — aided apparently by Deluca’s access to confidential and privileged police database information on residents and citizens — was reason enough for Coeymans town elected officials to ignore citizen complaints of abuse and to “turn the other cheek.”  And the résumé and outrageous employment claims discrepancies? It appears the Coeymans town board “Christians” made a special deal with God to give Deluca the capacity to be in several places at the same time; that’s the only way to explain his résumé and his employment claims.

What is most distressing and irking to most local residents and citizens is the fact that the Coeymans town board simply bends over for the Coeymans police department. The Coeymans town board ignores the numbers and simply obeys. A Ravena village justice, Hal Warner, husband of Ravena village trustee Nancy Biscone-Warner (Old Nancy, formerly mayor Bruno’s bitch, supervises her own husband’s court! How’s that for corruption!), recently stabbed a part-time village judge and Coeymans town justice in the back, forcing the Coeymans town justice, whom Warner had trained, to resign from his position. The reason: former Coeymans town justice Phillip Crandall spoke out against the illegal and unfair practices of the Coeymans police department and the favors being shown by Coeymans town courts to special people (like members of the Coeymans town board, for example). Honesty? Integrity? Justice? Fairness? Can’t have a judge like that! So force him to resign. Coeymans living up to its reputation as “a nest of hypocrisy.”

Incest, too, has been a popular them on this blog. Just search the term “incest” on this blog and your stomach will start to turn almost immediately. Count how many times the name “Deluca” turns up. Search the word corruption and see how many times the name “Matt Miller,” “Deluca“, “Warner“, “Darlington” comes up. Enough said.

So, Coeymans, you’ve come a long way to proving how disgusting you can be and how you just love being pissed on by your elected officials. Your town board is there to ensure that your civil rights are abused by your corrupt Coeymanazi police department. Your Coeymans town board is there to ensure that your tax dollars are wasted to the max. Your town board is there to turn Coeyman’s share of the historic and beautiful Hudson valley into everyone’s dump, industrial site, and transfer station. “Coeymans: the Hudson Valley’s Dump.” Coeymans is there to change its name for a handful of coupons for a disgusting and heart-toxic sandwich: “Reubenville.” Coeymans is there for your heavy truck traffic and features some of the best and deepest potholes in the county! The Coeymans town board is right there when a local money-bags wants to put in a bridge and cross Route 144, destroying local environment and putting every driver and his family at increased risk to life and limb with heavy trucks crossing a heavily travelled road, at a poorly visible point! Coeymans again living up to its reputation as “a nest of hypocrisy.”

Well, Coeymans residents and visitors will soon see and experience what we are talking about:  You’ll soon be trying to enjoy the air, the weather, the scenery of the Hudson Valley. But you won’t be able to breathe because of the stench of the dumps and the transfer stations, and the dust the heavy  trucks will be raising on the heavily damaged local roads. If you are out for a ride or your kids are out cruising, the Coeymans police will be hiding, ready to pounce on you or them, cuffing them because they “smell pot” in their cars. And there’ll be some local putting up a dirt bank to hide the Hudson from view. Be ready. Coeymans, the home of “same ol’ same ol’.”  Ain’t life grand in Coeymans?

Anyone and everyone in the Town of Coeymans should be asking the Coeymans town board about the studies and statistics they used to decide to continue paying more than $1,000,000 a year of Coeymans taxpayer dollars on the Coeymans police department when the town could be saving at least $500,000 a year by going with the Sheriff’s Department plan to establish a satellite station in Coeymans. We might also ask what is being done in terms of investigating the many claims and complaints against the Coeymans police department to avoid costly lawsuits against the town. We can ask what the Coeymans town board is doing about the civil rights abuses and obstruction of justice charges against the Coeymans police department. Never mind. We’ll tell you: No investigation. The Coeymans town board is approving more spending and approving more hiring. That’s what. Coeymans, the Police State.

And what about your roads, water, sewerage and waste water treatment? Youth and teens? Senior citizens housing and projects? Culture and history? Civil rights and family values. Vision and planning?  Quality of life in Coeymans? Your Coeymans elected officials, all church-going “Christians”, have their own ideas of the concept of “stewardship” and ethics in Coeymans. Your “Christian” elected officials in the Town of Coeymans have a legacy to protect: Hypocrisy.

 truck_in_dust

While they’re taking your firearms and preventing firearm noise in the Town of Coeymans; while they’re arresting your kids because the Coeymanazi cops smell pot (probably on their own clothes), and then demand that they provide information they don’t have (Aren’t you outraged, parents? They’re your kids!); while youre busting your axles in local potholes or risking your lives trying to avoid them; Your lungs are being treated to clouds of toxic dust and toxic fumes, not to mention what they’ve buried in your back yard or the sewerage in your basement! If the dust doesn’t get you, the heavy trucks pulling out in front of you will. Wasting your tax dollars paying for harassment and retaliation by bully-police, crooked attorneys and judges — rewarding the criminals and punishing the inocent citizen.

Coeymanazis Use Gestapo Tactics at RCS Schools

Coeymans Police Are Going Too Far: Students Report Their Lockers Being Searched By Police Using Dogs While Students are In Class!

lacey-searchParents allowing their kids to be victimized in this manner is sending a clear and unmistakable message to our young people: We don’t trust you! We can’t control you! You can’t be trusted! We’ll let law enforcement intimidate and harass you while we have some time for ourselves! We had fun making you but now we need to have some time on our own. Sure, we’ll let the Coeymanazis baby sit. Why not?

POLICE STATE GOES TO RCS SCHOOLS

Superintendent Allen McCarney is obviously in league and working with or for the Albany County District Attorney, Pudenda David Soares or some other moron in the Albany County DA’s office and local police in planning the search. McCartney is turning into a real company boy now that he’s in the pockets of the teacher-union-owned-and-taxpayer-paid-for RCS CSD board of education.

WHAT'S NEXT, MCCARTNEY, DARLINGTON?!?! is your next trick feeding the kids to the dogs?

WHAT’S NEXT, MCCARTNEY, DARLINGTON?!?!
Is your next trick feeding the kids to the dogs?

Of course, McCartney and his NYSUT and Coeymanazi keepers would tell us that they don’t not see the search as a violation of Fourth Amendment constitutional rights protecting citizens against unlawful or unreasonable searches. Of course, in our drug-ridden, Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirt ghetto schools the searches are to protect the students from themselves and the many drug dealers in a and around the RCS high-school, and to staunch the epidemic of drug-overdose deaths that have been occurring in Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk schools. Of course the searches are not animposition and in fact, the students, teachers and parents welcomed law enforcement efforts to harass and intimidate the students. Must make the Coeymanazis feel real good to give the rest of the world the impression our schools are packed with drug pushers and drug users. Makes the Coeymanazi p.d. really look good now, doesn’t it?

This, dear readers, is another cowardly and scandalous attempt by the Coeymans police department and their Nazi friends to harass and intimidate the local community through the students. How dare they go into our schools with police and dogs and execute searches. Where are you parents, anyway? Do the students have to take matters into their own hands to get justice and fairness and not continue to be treated like inmates instead of young adults?

First it was putting a Coeymans police officer who turned out to be the school harlot after a short time, carousing with a wrestling coach and causing a break-up of the coach and his girlfriend. That same RSO officer ended up copping a DUI. Of course, nobody in the RCS CSD Administration foresaw the potential for the female police officer to give every male student an erection but the wrestling coach got her first, we think. But on school property, in his office. Well, that’s the rumor around the school.

So, what’s the deal McCartney, RCS CSD school board a.k.a. New York State United Teachers board at RCS? Find anything you liked?

How to make the kids like the parents

dog and lockersIn an article printed in the Times Union, “Supreme Court: Drug dog sniff is unconstitutional search” (by Jesse J. Hollan of the Associated Press (AP), Tuesday, March 26, 2013) the author writes:

“The Supreme Court ruled…that police cannot bring drug-sniffing police dogs onto a suspect’s property to look for evidence without first getting a warrant for a search, a decision which may limit how investigators use dogs’ sensitive noses to search out drugs, explosives and other items hidden from human sight, sound and smell.
Justice Antonin Scalia said a person has the Fourth Amendment right to be free from the government’s gaze inside their home and in the area surrounding it, which is called the curtilage.”

Shouldn’t our students and schools enjoy these same constitutional rights? Shouldn’t a warrant be required based on good solid probable cause that a search is necessary? Maybe, but not in Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk, where the US Constitution has been suspended and is not applicable to residents and citizens in Ravena-Coeymans Selkirk!

If this happend anywhere else, somewhere where the residents aren’t pussy-whipped by local Coeymanazis, all hell would have broken loose. And it has happened elsewhere and all hell did break loose (hence the Supreme Court decision). But not here in RCS! Anyone care to speculate why we bend over and ask for the joy stick?

These bobo-crime stoppers are real heros; they go after cripples, old ladies and kids. Balless wonders that they are! At a cost of more than $1 million a year to Coeymans taxpayers, we think that money should be spent more responsibly. Don’t you? Eliminate the Coeymans Police department and all of the dingbat vampires hiding there!

We also have received reports that Coeymans polic e officer and RCS CSD RSO Danielle Crosier, you know the Coeymanazi who wrecks patrol cars, can’t pick a lane and stay in it, DUI/DWI copette, the one who’s allegedly carrying on with the RCS wresting coach in his office (she’s apparently not getting enough down at the station). Yeah, the same Danielle Crosier who is pulling kids out of the halls and searching them at the school. Here we have the hot-to-trot harlot, the Coeymanazi p.d.’s kitten in uniform, demonstrating firsthand how a police state operates and what it feels like to be publicly humiliated for nothing. She’s also the Coeymanazi p.d.’s example of morality, too. Yes, RCS parents, that’s the word on the street and in the halls of RCS about your fine RSO and your fine Coeymanazi p.d. What do you have to say about that? Want an investigation? An investigation will either get her fired or jailed (depending on who’s she doing and where), will get the wrestling coach fired, or an investigation will clear both. We think an investigation is the way to go. Don’t you?

We are expecting updated information and documents and will post the updates as soon as we receive them.
